Back to School Central 2014
The first day of school in Metro Nashville Public Schools is Wednesday, August 6. You read that right. We're just a few days away from school bells, new school supplies and big yellow buses.
This page is your headquarters for everything you need to go back to school. You can find links to all of the important information you need, including enrollment, immunizations, school bus routes and more. We will also be collecting your questions and posting the answers from now until August 6.
Get started today, because #MNPSDay1 will be here before you know it!
We will update this page regularly with new posts and information, so come back often.
