Online Registration

At Pulaski County Schools we believe engaging guardians, students, and staff forms the foundation for success in our school community.  In order to engage the school community we must maintain current contact information for students and their guardians.  The online registration system will help us do that.

Reopening of Pulaski County Schools

School is expected to open August 5, 2020.   During this time of a pandemic, we must make some hard decisions.  Some will not be popular and I understand, but we must try to make the best decisions for students given the expectations from state agencies.  Our plan follows the expectations of the Kentucky Department of Education and the Kentucky Department of Health.  The plan is based around three common principles: social distancing of at least six feet, wearing a mask when you cannot socially distance, and contact tracing if COVID-19 is present.  Parents will be able to choose a virtual option or attend school on a 5-day normal schedule.  Both options will have conditions that parents must consider when making their decision.  Click on the article title for additional information.
