Daviess County Public Schools and Owensboro Public Schools are asking the public to support students across the Owensboro community as they prepare for the start of the new school year.

In the fourth annual "Stuff the Bus" event on Friday, Aug 7, school buses from both districts will be in the parking lots of two local Walmart stores, accepting donations of school supplies that will go directly to students.

Those who wish to donate school supplies to students in the Owensboro community can visit the following two locations until 5:00 p.m. on Friday:

  1. 5031 Frederica St
  2. 3151 Kentucky 54

Supplies may be purchased at any store but will be collected during the Stuff the Bus event at those two Owensboro Walmart locations.

Items that would help a local child begin the school year ready-to-learn include:

  • Paper (loose leaf and notebooks)
  • Scissors
  • Pencils, pens, highlighters, crayons
  • Backpacks
  • School Glue
  • Rulers
  • Folders and binders
  • Calculators

List of school supplies that are recommended for various grade levels will be available inside both Stuff the Bus locations. "Wish lists" will also be available at the school buses.

Students in the Owensboro Public Schools district will head back to class starting Aug 24, while Daviess County Public Schools students will return to class on Aug 26, each district with its own set of safety guidelines in place to keep students and staff healthy.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
