DCPS Back-to-School Events

back to school 2019

Daviess County Public Schools 

2019-2020 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 return to our home page at 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 or write to OLRhelp@dcps.org  (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. 7.
