Mark Your Calendars: Pre-Opening School Orientation Sessions Begin August 13

Prince George County Public Schools is preparing to welcome students and our community back to school for the upcoming 2024-25 School Year, with a first day of school slated for Monday, August 19, 2024. Our faculty and staff extend a warm welcome to both our returning students and those joining the PGCPS family for the first time this year. 

As we lead up to the start of the school year, families are encouraged to attend their child's pre-opening orientation session during the week of August 13, 2024. These sessions are a great opportunity for students and families to receive helpful information, tour the campus, and meet with school staff. 

Additionally, backpacks and school supplies will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at each school's orientation sessions for students needing those resources. To learn more, including how to donate supplies now through August 6, 2024, visit our website at http://www.pgs.k12.va.us
