I cannot believe that summer is almost over!  My kids said it was the fastest summer ever.  With summer ending the Daviess County Public Schools are planning for students to return.

 

These events will provide important information for the families of DCPS to ensure a smooth beginning to the school year, including bus schedules, classroom visits, fee payments and information about after-school programs.

While the lists may not be complete, the schools will add additional events at a later time. Parents should contact the school their child will attend to confirm information about these events. Phone numbers are listed below. Families who are unsure of their school zone may visit www.dcps.org and click on “Schools” in the red menu bar, then select “Find Your School Zone,” or call 270-852-7000.

In addition to these back-to-school events, DCPS is offering online registration. Parents and guardians who need assistance with that process may contact the school their child will attend. (Families with more than one child may complete the registration process for all children at the same time.)

During Back-to-School, Open House and orientation events, parents/families and students will have the opportunity to prepare for the upcoming school year. Options that may be available include: Visit classrooms, meet teachers and staff, pay fees, complete online registration and paperwork, bring immunization records and other required documents, purchase or bring school supplies, pick up schedules, receive parking passes, get locker assignments, deliver medications to health room, deposit money into lunch accounts, register for after-school programs, learn about clubs, learn about Family Resource and Youth Services Center programs, learn bus route information and receive car rider tags.

First day of school for DCPS students is Wednesday, Aug. 8.
