Warren County School System enrollment is growing – by two students at least.
Based on figures from the first day of school on Thursday, Warren County enrollment stands at 6,158 students, according to Director of Schools Bobby Cox. That’s two more students than the first day of school last year.
“We usually keep adding students at a pretty good pace all the way up to the fair,” said Cox. “The schools I visited had been registering students all day long.”
Most schools were about the same in their enrollment numbers as last year with the exception of West Elementary. West’s first-day enrollment was 445, up 93 students from last year.
Cox said he visited WCMS, West Elementary, Eastside, and the high school annex. He was pleased to report an uneventful first day, aside from the usual traffic snarls.
“I appreciate all the support from parents and hope they bear with us on traffic for the first few days,” said Cox. “It’s like this every year at the start of school until people get in a routine.”
Cox said the school system finished with around 6,400 students last year and he anticipates similar enrollment this year.
