Kenton County schools highly encourage public safety for children and I think it is great to ensure that the children and staff are safe. I work in the office with some of the administration and they are always on top of situations and so friendly to students, they really make me feel safe and are reliable. Kenton County does a great job incorporating students into programs and getting their opinion on certain situations. I love my school and school district and wouldn’t change a thing about it. Everyone is like family to me and I can always come to them when I have a problem.
