Director of Personnel and Student Support Services James Mangels is urging families to register their children for the new school year at Trigg County Public Schools.

Speaking last week as the district prepared to welcome students back to class, Mangels noted that of 1,909 students who were in school at the end of last year, only 1,193 have registered for the 2021-2022 school year.

He said there is a link on the district’s webpage at for the online registration.

“They need to get registered,” said Mangels, noting that registration has been open since July 1.

He said he is looking forward to seeing students back at school again this year, and Mangels asked the public to be patient with traffic as things get underway next week.

Additionally, he said parents should leave a little earlier for drop-off.

“The public should watch for children at bus stops and cross walks,” he said.

All schools will also have open houses as the year begins.

Trigg County Primary School will have an open house by appointment only on Thursday for grades one and two and for kindergarten on Monday. If parents haven’t been contacted by a teacher, they should call the school to schedule an appointment.

Trigg County Intermediate School will have an open house by appointment only on Thursday. Teachers are calling to schedule the appointments.
