WCPS Community,


I hope this message finds you enjoying a great summer with your family and friends! Although school is out for the summer, much work continues behind the scenes as we prepare for the opening of the 24-25 school year on Wednesday, August 7th!


Our summer break began with the exciting announcement of two new principals! Dr. Cody Rich was announced as the first principal of the IMPACT Center for Leadership and Innovation, which is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2026 on Cumberland Trace Road. The IMPACT Center is the first-of-its-kind school in which leadership and innovation will be foundational components of all programming and opportunities offered within the center. Students will receive training in high-need employment sectors including engineering, computer science, entrepreneurship, health sciences, teaching and more! 


Mr. Josh Porter is returning as the principal of Warren Elementary where he served in this same role at Warren Elementary from 2007-2019. While at Warren Elementary, he focused on the social, emotional and academic needs of all students through building strong relationships with families and community partners to remove barriers and expand student learning opportunities. Mr. Porter is genuinely excited about returning to Warren Elementary and we look forward to supporting his leadership efforts as Warren Elementary transitions into a brand new, state-of-the-art facility on Brookwood Drive in the fall of 2025. 


Our remarkable Nutrition and Dining Services (WCNDS) team has been busy working hard during our annual Summer Feeding program. We have two schools serving meals Monday – Friday. Those schools are Bristow Elementary (June 3 - June 28, 2024) & Jennings Creek Elementary (June 3 - July 24, 2024, closed July 4 & 5).  All children 18 or under are invited to enjoy a free breakfast meal and/or lunch meal in our cafeterias on those days, no matter what school they attend.  We are also continuing our tradition of taking food into our community throughout the summer. Our School Bus Café will visit several locations across our community Monday – Friday through July 24, 2024 (closed July 4). Please see the attached menu and flier for locations, dates, and times as we hope to see many of our students coming together to enjoy these nutritious meals.


Also this summer, you will see the Warren County Public Schools’ Little Learners bus out in the community providing instruction to our youngest learners! Through the efforts of our dedicated staff, instructional sessions will be offered this summer free of charge and are open to any families with children ages Birth to age 5. See the flyer below to see the summer route schedule for the free instructional sessions offered through the Little Learners bus:


We are also excited to continue expanded learning opportunities for several of our students this summer through the Summer Literacy Academy, as well as our new KinderReady Summer Academy. These programs are designed to continue to build upon our students’ academic, social and emotional skill sets through fun, engaging learning sessions.  


I hope you all have a wonderful summer making memories with your family and friends. Should you need any assistance this summer, please do not hesitate to contact our Central Office at (270) 781-5150.
