Principal's Message


Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the Meadow View Elementary School faculty and staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year!  Please plan on attending our Open House on August 3 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm.  This is a chance for you and your students to meet the classroom teachers and see what programs and services are offered at Meadow.  We are dedicated to our students, our school, and our community and look forward to seeing you soon!

We will continue to strive to have a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.  Our dedicated faculty and staff will work hard to meet the individual needs of all our students, and maintain personal connections with our Meadow View families.

We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  1. Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience,
  2. Completes all homework assignments given by teachers,
  3. Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills,
  4. Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life,
  5. Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject,
  6.  Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college and career.

We invite you to consider joining our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school and its operations.

Please review all materials sent home with your child. If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, feel free to contact me or to discuss them with your child’s teacher. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year.

We thank you for your support and your commitment to your child's education. I look forward to seeing you in the very near future.

With Trojan Pride,

Althea Hurt

This is my 4th year as principal of Meadow View, and I am once again excited to serve our students, staff, parents and community.  Before coming to Meadow View, I was an assistant principal at North Hardin High school for five years.  Before that administrative role, I worked as Math Facilitator and a fourth grade teacher at Walker Intermediate School, Fort Knox Kentucky.  I have also taught third grade for the Department of Defense Schools in Germany and fifth grade in Colorado Springs, Colorado.


I am a graduate of Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.  I received a post graduate teaching certification and Rank II from Northwestern State University in Elementary Education.  I graduated in 2009 with a Master’s degree and Rank I in Educational Administration from Western Kentucky University.


My husband, James, retired from the Army after 20 years and is currently a contracting officer at Fort Knox, Kentucky.  We have three children and one grandchild.


My favorite quote is:

“Your background and circumstances don’t determine your future.”
