-A A +A

The big yellow buses hit the road Thursday, Aug. 4, as LaRue County students return to class.
There will be a few changes in store for them.
Hodgenville Elementary students will be greeted by a new principal, Sue Osborne, who takes over for Penny Cecil. Cecil has accepted a position at central office.
Osborne served as principal of Washington County Elementary School from 2002-10 and Elementary Curriculum Supervisor in Mercer County this past year.
She met many of her new students Aug. 2 at the school’s open house.
At LaRue County Middle School, there is a change to the dress code. The site-based council has added a “no open gauges” rule. Gauges are a form of piercing.
LaRue County High School students will be treated to a re-vamped cafeteria.
Start times are 7:45 a.m. for elementary school and 8 a.m. for middle and high schools.
There will be a change in afternoon dismissal times. Buses will load at the LaRue County Middle School and High School campuses first at 3-3:07 p.m. Buses will travel to elementary schools for loading 3:10-3:15 p.m.
Schools will continue to dismiss early on Fridays – 1:30 p.m. for the middle and high schools and about 1:35 p.m. for the elementary schools.
