The following is a statement from the Letcher County School System released earlier today.
In an effort to keep our students safe, the Letcher County School District has been working with our local law enforcement agencies to have a larger presence of officers in our schools. Therefore, each school will have a local deputy in full uniform serve in our buildings beginning on Monday, March 5, 2018 and continuing throughout this school year. Our students’ safety is our top priority. If you have questions or concerns, please call your school’s principal or our central office at (606) 633-4455.
