Laptop for School 
Every student is encouraged to bring a personal device, other than a cell phone, for the 2019-2020 school year. Teachers will continue to utilize our online learning management system (Canvas) to provide students with a blended learning model of teaching and learning to best meet the needs of all students. Many resources such as math textbooks and other resources across content areas will be uploaded for students to access on Canvas via a laptop or chromebook. Students and teachers will continue to integrate and use technology to enhance learning and provide students with the skills needed to be college, career, and life ready.

The Boone County School District and Cooper High School are not recommending what type of device to purchase for your student(s). With costs varying widely among types of devices, brand, and capabilities we encourage you to research and discuss what device will best meet the needs and interests of your student. For further guidance and suggestions,  click here.

  • Your student will NOT be able to attend school in the fall without documented proof of starting the Hepatitis A SERIES on a valid KY Immunization Certificate.(Again, the series consists of 2 doses, so the FIRST dose MUST be on the certificate with an expiration date to reflect the 2nd dose after the 6 month window)
  • In addition to the Hepatitis A vaccine, high school students age 16 years or older are required to have proof of a 2nd dose of the Meningococcal vaccine.  This MUST also be on their KY immunization certificate.
Tips and Suggestions:
  • Call your doctor's office to verify if your student has already received the required vaccines
  • If you find out that your child DOES NOT have the required vaccines, you will want to make arrangements to get the shots right away. Because the Hepatitis A vaccine is a series - you will have to start shot #1 ASAP as they CANNOT start school without proof of having started the series.  They can receive the 2nd Meningococcal vaccine right after their 16th birthday.


Please note that our first aid room staff returns to work a few days prior to the first day of school.

Camp Jaguar 
Camp Jaguar for our incoming freshmen has been set for Friday, August 9th from 8:00-12:00 noon.
This will be a great day for your freshman student to feel more comfortable about high school, build friendships, find their classes, open their locker, opportunities to get involved and many other essential things to make the transition to Cooper as smooth as possible!  Students are paired with their Freshman Mentoring Group and Leader.  This group will be together throughout the school year during J.A.M. (Jaguar Achievement & Mentoring) time.

Please take a moment to register your freshman student at the link below so we can adequately plan for those attending.  Students receive a free t-shirt as well as lunch.
