Ketchum Schools starting Thursday, Aug 15th
Updated: Sep 3, 2019
Well, it is up for debate on who is excited and who is dreading going back to school the most this year - the kids, the teachers or the parents! Actually, many are looking forward to Ketchum Public Schools starting back in session starting on Thursday, Aug 15th, but many more would dread school no matter when it started.
As school starts back up, the Town of Ketchum would like residents and visitors driving through Ketchum to be especially careful and mindful of our students going to and from school on foot, by vehicle and of course the many buses. We want to make sure that everyone has an incredibly safe and fun start of the school year.
Ketchum Schools is ready for an exciting 2019-2020 school year. Last year we had 197 enrolled at Ketchum High School, 116 enrolled at Ketchum Middle School, and 274 enrolled at Ketchum Elementary - for a total of 587 enrolled in 2018. Ketchum also had 43 students graduate from Ketchum in May, 2019. We are still waiting to see how the 2019-2020 school enrollment shapes up but we are expecting it to be another great year!
School athletics will be back underway and we ask all residents to come out and support the Ketchum Warrior High School and Junior High football teams, softball teams, cross country running teams, and of course our Warrior cheerleaders! The first high school home football game is scheduled for Sept. 6th at 7pm.
