07/24/17  School Days Begin In Three Weeks


Just three weeks from today is the first day of school at Fordyce Schools and most schools in the region. The first day of school is August 14.  Superintendent Dr. Albert Snow says teachers and staff will return to work August 7 through 11 for professional development workshops and to get classrooms ready for students.

The district will hold an open house for parents and students on August 10. The Elementary open house is from 5-6pm and the high school open house is from 5:30-6:30pm.

Student registration for elementary school will be this week, today through Thursday, from 8am till 3pm. High school registration dates have yet to be announced.

We talked with Dr. Albert Snow earlier this month about the start of school and various topics. He was asked about counseling available at school, in particular mental health counseling.

 He said teachers are trained to recognize metal health concerns in students and appropriate counseling then takes place.
