(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Summer vacation is officially over for some local students as of Wednesday, July 31.

Lawrenceburg Community Schools and Saint Lawrence Catholic School are welcoming students back for the first day of class of the 2019-2020 school year.

LCSC Superintendent Karl Galey says motorists in Lawrenceburg are asked to be mindful of school buses back on the road this morning and afternoon.

Students at St. Lawrence School are being greeted by a new principal this year. Mr. Rob Detzel comes to St. Lawrence by way of St. Cecilia School in northern Kentucky.

The schools in Lawrenceburg return at least a week ahead of most other area schools this year. The trade-off is that Lawrenceburg students will receive a two-week fall break September 30 through October 11.

  • Batesville Community Schools - August 7
  • Boone County Schools - August 14
  • Erlanger-Elsmere Independent Schools - August 14
  • Franklin County Community Schools - August 7
