SCHOOL OPEN HOUSES AND BACK TO SCHOOL FESTS DATES FOR 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR

OPEN HOUSE 2022-23 DATES SET

The Back-to-School Fests at the beginning of this school year were tremendously successful.  Therefore, Hardin County Schools is planning Back-to-School Fests before the 2022-23 school year.  All schools will also continue to conduct traditional open houses before the first day of school.

The open houses are instrumental in helping new students and parents become acquainted with their school.  It assists families in familiarizing themselves with the school’s layout, programs, teachers, administrators and logistics. 

Some elementary schools have separate activities for incoming kindergartners.  Some middle schools have an independent night for a sixth grade transition event.

HCS Family Resource and Youth Services Centers are organizing the Back-to-School Fests open to all HCS families. The fests will host community organizations and partners who will provide families with back-to-school information and fun. There will be a DJ and Kona Ice. The Salvation Army will have free hot dogs and water while supplies last. There will be face painting and games for children.  The events will take place in each of the district’s three feeder patterns.
