2017-2018 School Year Start Times

With opening of West Clermont High School and West Clermont Middle School we knew there would be an increased demand on traffic in the area of the two schools and on bus transportation.  To help with the increased traffic in the area, Clough Pike will be widened between McMann Road, and Bach-Buxton Road.  The construction is currently underway and is scheduled to be completed by June 30th.  Additionally, West Clermont Middle School will begin the day at 7:00am and West Clermont High School will begin the day at 7:45am to allow the middle school traffic to filter out before the high school traffic arrives. 

To overcome transportation issues such as geography, the length of the routes, and the ability of a bus to complete the middle school route and then get to their elementary route the district has to absorb 8 buses to make sure they can make the run to West Clermont Middle School and then turn around and make their elementary routes.  To accommodate this, Brantner Elementary will be moved to being a late starting school beginning with the 2017-2018 school year.  The school day at Brantner will now run from 9:20am – 3:55pm. 

Brantner will join Holly Hill, Merwin,  Summerside, Willowville, and Withamsville Tobasco as late starting schools.  Both Amelia Elementary and Clough Pike Elementary will still begin the day at 8:20am.

Leader of The Pack Award

The Board of Education has decided to establish a new award with the new high school and middle school opening up later this year.  The award is called the Leader of the Pack Award.  The purpose of the award is to recognize any district employee that goes above and beyond the call of duty in service to our students and to our community.  

We could not think of a better recipient for the first Leader of the Pack Award than Tyler Hopper, the Athletic Trainer at Glen Este High School.  Three weeks ago, one of the girls basketball players at Glen Este suffered a major medical episode towards the end of practice.  Tyler was called to the gym and immediately began performing CPR.  His actions truly saved this young lady’s life.  We are happy to report that because of his actions, the young lady is doing much better and working everyday towards making a full recovery.

For his quick action and dedicated service to the student athletes at Glen Este High School we are proud to name Tyler Hopper as the first ever recipient of the West Clermont Local Schools Leader of the Pack Award.
