Daviess County Public Schools 

2017-2018 Back-To-School Information

 

Daviess County Public Schools are hosting back-to-school events as we look forward to welcoming students back to school in August. These events provide important information for our families to ensure a smooth beginning to the school year, including bus schedules, classroom visits, fee payments and information about after-school programs.

 

This list may not be complete; additional events may be scheduled at a later date. Parents should call 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 click HERE for that information, 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.)

 

First day of school for DCPS students is Wednesday, Aug. 9.
