Ballard County Elementary School will hold registration on Tuesday, Aug. 4, for students in grades K-5 who did not attend BCES during the 2019-20 school year.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; no appointment is necessary. The event will be held in front of the school at 3383 Paducah Road, Barlow. Parents/guardians are asked to drive up to the main entrance, and a staff member will assist them there.

      The days will look different at Ballard County Preschool-Head Start this year, but students will be welcome either in person, or online.

Director Terri Wehmeyer said classes will begin on Sept. 2. Because of the added need to sanitize the building, split-day classes are not feasible this year, she said. In-person students will stay all day, Monday through Thursday, and alternate weeks. “So, students who had been slated to be in morning classes will come one week, and students who were to be in afternoon classes will come all day the next week,” Wehmeyer explained.
