The decision has been made to change the Metcalfe County Schools mascot from the traditional "Hornets" to the "Horn Toad". The new school colors will be dark green, black, brown, and white. It is the opinion of the decision makers that this mascot will better represent the beliefs and pride of Metcalfe Countians. Some have always felt out of place with the stinging hornet and thought it represented pain and suffereing. With the Horn Toad hopping on board our representation is now more accepting and loving much like Horn's cousin Kermit. The decision has school officials jumping with joy and painting is scheduled to begin tomorrow with hopes of having a new look complete by Spring breaks end. 

Schools Closed Friday, March 7

Metcalfe County Schools will be closed Friday, March 7. There are at least a dozen roads in the county that are ice covered and affect multiple bus routes.  The picture below is indicative of what these roads look like.
