Message from Superintendent Lile

On Thursday afternoon September 8th, I received a call that any school official hopes they never receive. A Metcalfe County school bus had been involved in a serious accident. With little more information than the location, I and several other district administrators rushed to the site. Immediately upon arrival we realized the gravity of the situation. Upon finding that our students and driver were not seriously injured we implemented district procedures to notify parents.

Just as it became apparent our students were safe, the realization set in that the other victim of the crash was not. All of us in the Metcalfe County School System mourn with the Thurmond family the loss of a mother, a wife, a school parent, and a valued member of our community. Words will never express the sense of emptiness we feel at this time.There are many organizations and entities that are deserving of recognition for their call of duty during this event. These include;

Metcalfe County School Bus Accident




September 8, 2016

Dr. Benny Lile


Metcalfe County Schools

(270) 432-3171



At approximately 3 p.m. on Thursday, September 8, 2016, Metcalfe County School bus no. 89 was involved in an accident on Hwy. 1243 about 2 miles out of Edmonton, Ky.

                The school bus was travelling northbound when another vehicle collided with the bus head-on.

The bus driver, David Holley, executed all emergency evacuation procedures and was able to get all of the children safely off the bus.

Holley was transporting 34 children.  Sixteen students were transported by ambulances to TJ Samson Community Hospital in Glasgow, Ky.  Eighteen students were picked up at the scene by parents or guardians. Some parents chose to transport their child to the hospital by private means.  It doesn’t appear the students suffered any serious injuries. 

District personnel met first responders at the scene and at the hospital. 

We would like to thank Penny Groce, a Metcalfe County resident, who helped care for the students at her home until help arrived.  We want to express our gratitude to Holley who acted swiftly and properly in a critical situation.  We also want to thank all first responders who were on the scene.

News Release

December 10, 2015 – Edmonton, KY

Early Thursday morning the principal and other leaders of Metcalfe County High School were made aware that at least two students had made a threat of aggression towards the high school. District officials and law enforcement were immediately notified. Within minutes the students in question were isolated and a full investigation was initiated.

At this time the investigation is continuing. Those students who were directly involved have been identified and are being dealt with as dictated by the school discipline policy and the legal system.

“We take any and all threats seriously”, said Chris Huffman, Safe Schools Director. “It’s important for our community to know that the high school leadership team followed exact protocol and the situation was under complete control from the moment the information was shared. At no time was any student in danger” Huffman added. “We are confident we have identified the main individuals responsible for this, but we will continue the investigation until we are completely satisfied that all questions have been answered.” He concluded by saying “We can’t emphasize enough to our students and entire community…if you see or hear something that just doesn’t sound right, please let a school official or law enforcement know. It is much better to be wrong than to let something just pass by.”

School officials have indicated there was no disruption to the school day and all activities will continue as planned this week and leading up to Christmas break.

2016 Strategic Plan

In late 2015 over 50 staff, community members, parents, and students divided into five work groups and began work on what would ultimately be a strategic plan. This plan would set the direction for Metcalfe County Schools for the immediate future. At the June 2016 board meeting the Metcalfe County Board of Education approved the final version of the plan. The plan is not a requirement of KDE and is non-binding.  A strategic plan brings a variety of constituencies together to help focus on items of importance that will build stronger schools and communities.
