  • Open houses, student registration scheduled by schools

     Scheduling registration a few weeks before school starts is a good way for LaRue County High School, as principal Paul Mullins says, “to be ready to start school when school starts.”

    “We want to spend as much time as we can in instruction once the term begins,” Mullins said. “Students pick their classes in the spring for the next school year so that by registration time, their schedules are made out.”
