Does anyone know if Bevins Grade will be closing at the end of the year. I'm starting to hear rumors much the same as I did last year. Hopefully someone can shed some clarity on the situation. It is a wonderful school and I would hate to see the doors closed forever.
Wooooooooow

I am sure that they are going to keep trying to but the parents are still going to have to band together. There was a parade in Pikeville on Monday night that the board had sent out requests to each school for the ball teams, STLP, etc..to come and be a part of, Bevins was included. We told parent after parent that EVERYONE from this side of the hill should be there to show support for their school but only a hand full was there.So few in fact that we were able to put all of the children from Bevins on one trailer and that is including the teachers that rode with them. As we rounded the corner in the parade, who do you think was standing there? Wagner. It really looked bad on the community that so few of us was there to show them that we back our side of the hill. We stood and fought this last year and I am sure that we will again but until everyone realizes that we need to be there ALL of the time then showing up to fight it later is not going to do alot of good. I love Bevins and pray that it doesn't shut down but it is going to take the community as a whole working year round to make the boards office realize how serious we are about it. Like we have said before, it is nothing against any of the other schools, we just want ours the same as the others want theirs. So any suggestions?? No rude comments please, this is an important subject with no room for trash talk....

I am sorry that the word did not get to you. We received a call from the school that an email was sent out encouraging all school organizations to be in the parade (sports, academic teams, etc..) but anyway, we called all of the coaches and told them and encouraged the parents and some of the teachers that I had got up with to tell everyone that they could. Sorry that the word didn't get to ya..

My problem is my child's teacher is terrible! I wanted to transfer out and was told my child had to attend where we lived! Like anyone else follows this rule! I can't wait for this year to end and then I don't care what happens!

look my child goes to bevins and it is a great school. My problem is that they are going to send us to southside where it is over crowded and I don't think that is right. To the one who said Don was going to buy the school. When you said a trianing center who else beside massey did you think people would think. I don't know if he is or not but the only people that can shut the school down is the school board so put the blame were it belongs.

Not sure who (just ask) is but there is one thing that is the truth, and it is that Don has bigger fish to fry than trying to take a grade school from young children. Who ever you are the coal industry is headed for a hurting and I for one I would be a little more worried to were its going. I for one hate to hear about all the coal mining jobs that will be lost and all the teachers that are from Bevins will have to have a job and I bet they dont go way off, they will take jobs at the southside school and we dont want that. I have a child at Bevins and I'm not worried about it because my child will have the teachers from there at the school where they send him. Well just to be truthful sounds like whoever you are your just trying to start trouble because I myself have more info. about want is going on than I've heard you say. So it really sound like someone is just trying to start a rumor. Some of us have enuogh stuff on the BOE members if they try to go against the plan out of Frankfort, KY they will also be looking for jobs if there not in jail first. I dont thing Don would want his hands any dirtier than they already are.

See this is exactly what I was talking about when I asked for no one to post rude comments. This is about the closing of the school not about individual teachers. And for the record, anyone with common sense knows who BH is and I love her. She has already taught two of my children and hopefully next year will have the third. I have NEVER had trouble with any teacher in that school but like I said, this thread is about the closing of the school not to slander anyone, and that even includes Don. We need people who are willing to stand together for the school but I guess that is too much to ask for because you all can't even get along on here..
get over it

It seems that all everyone wants to do is say that "OMG Bevins is shuttin down.!." Can't everyone get a life and be happy and not worry about it. My child goes there and loves it dearly and I would hate to see it close, but let me tell you all something whether you know it or not, what you think doesn't matter. If the school board wants to shut ANY school down, they will and can, and last time I checked they didn't need permission from any of you. Besides that, why does it always gotta be Bevins everyone is worring about closing, like Runyon and Blackberry are in any better shape. May as well suck it up and get over it!!
