Kindergarten Kickoff readies incoming students in Bullitt County

BULLITT COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - Incoming Bullitt County kindergarteners learned the rules of the road, while inside a school bus on Tuesday.

It was all part of the Bullitt County Public School Kindergarten Kickoff. Students from 13 different elementary schools attended the kickoff at Paroquet Springs Conference Center.

It was a chance for students to meet their principals and teachers, finish up any enrollment paperwork, and tour a real school bus.

"Maybe it'll be the first time they've been on the bus and they get to learn about the safety rules of the bus and those jitters, you know, hopefully those are gone when they get picked up on the first day," said Sherri Hamilton, the BCPS Director of Elementary Education.

Bullitt County students head back to school August 8.
