Trigg County Schools Still
On Track For Opening Day


Contrary to rumors and concerns that construction at the Trigg County Primary and Intermediate Schools will delay the start of school, the head contractor and project architect told school board members Thursday night that classes will start as scheduled on August 6.

Before school board members toured construction areas, Keith Sharp with JKS Architects said that although every detail won't be completed, three main essentials will be finished on time.

Craig Guess with Vanguard Construction says there are some materials that will not come in by the start date, like certain special order doors, but appropriate substitutes will be in place.

There may be a slight delay in the start of preschool, and the Intermediate School entrance on Main Street may need to be used for both the Primary and Intermediate Schools at the start of school. The Primary and Intermediate Schools will host open house in the schools cafeteria on July 31 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Open House for the Middle School will be Aug. 4 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. High School Open House will be Aug. 4 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm.

Superintendent Travis Hamby says they plan to let Primary and Intermediate teachers into their classrooms on Monday, July 28. Professional Development will happen on July 30, and the Gala of Tables will begin at 8:00 am on August 5.

In other business, the board approved a $3,000 service contract with Radio ID Equipment for the Car Rider Pro system. As part of the system, encoded vehicle tags will be used by primary and intermediate parents for car pick up, which will record dates and times of student pick-up.
