CANCELED due to Covid increases in community
Back to School Celebration for Wayne County Students and Families
Wayne County Schools will be having a districtwide Back to School Community Carnival to celebrate the new school season where all learning will take place in-person, back in the classrooms at each school building, providing COVID infection rates remain low.
The district wants to celebrate with Wayne County School students and families in a big way, after facing a difficult pandemic. With virtual classes not being planned in the upcoming school year, the district is excited to embrace the return of their students and families’ in-person.
The local educators are being joined by the local Defensive Action Against Drugs (DAAD) organization, which has done a wonderful job hosting the Back to School Bash in past years. They are sharing their resources and working together with the district to make a memorable evening for everyone to have fun. The event will be held outdoors at a central location on campus near the Turner Building on Monday, August 16 from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. There will be free food, games, booths, inflatables, and carnival activities. Business partners and organizations are joining the district in providing information and prizes at a variety of booths. Wayne County School families will be able to sign in at a registration desk to begin the special celebration.
Students will report back to class on August 19 for the first day of school which will be in session for 8:15 to 3:15 p.m. The staff will attend opening day on August 18th. Each school will be conducting their own orientation schedules in August.
