I am tisha Lynch and Randy dubbels the mother and step father of Emily Lynch and we are concerned with Emily when she was first enrolled at Mccracken county high school she was getting bad grades and wanting to goof off while in school and not wanting to work to get her grades up but when she got in trouble and had to go to Alternative school she improved a lot in her grades so we asked emily why her grades we're failing and she said she can't work around noise and be able to concentrate so that's why we think this open campus would be good for her after she got out of Alternative school if that is at all possible. Thanks Tisha Lynch & Randy Dubbels.
