SCPS Board of Education Amends 2020 - 2021 School Calendar

(Shelbyville, KY) At their July 9th, 2020 meeting, the Shelby County Board of Education voted to amend the 2020 - 2021 School Calendar. The revised opening day for school is Wednesday, August 26th.

Due to COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the local, state and federal authorities, Shelby County Public Schools will utilize the extra time to prepare a safe environment, publish plans for students and parents, communicate with families, and prepare for a "new normal." 

SCPS families can expect an email with information regarding Re-Opening Plans for SCPS late in the afternoon on Friday, July 10th from their schools.  If you do not receive an email, the information will be available in paper form to pick up at the schools. A special receptacle will be placed where you can pick up the information without going inside the building. 

If you have questions about the information, please contact your school leadership or call the Central Office. 


Dr. Sally Sugg, Superintendent of SCPS, published a video after the board meeting on July 9th.  Nate Jebsen, Principal of MLCHS, translated in Spanish. Here is a link to the video:
