Adair County High School is again offering Extended School Services this year for every student FREE of charge. The school is accepting teacher and parent recommendations for students who are at risk of failing, who need to attain a credit in a previously failed course, who need additional time to learn the content presented in the classroom, or who need to make up a quiz or test.
Please encourage your children to speak to their teachers if they feel they have a need for tutoring services. The ESS Program supports the common goal of helping our children be successful.
Extended school services are available every Tuesday afternoon from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. for Math, every Thursday afternoon from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. for Science, and on Early Release Friday afternoons from 1:00 to 2:45 p.m. for all subject areas. Transportation arrangements will need to be provided by guardians for students who will be staying for tutoring as the school is unable to accommodate after-school transportation at this time.
If you have any questions, please contact ESS coordinator Tracey Pierce at 270-384-2751 ext. 144, on Mondays between the hours of 7:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m.
