We Dig Our School!

Welcome to Cox’s Creek Elementary School

Cox’s Creek Elementary is about six miles east of Bardstown in a picturesque setting. We currently serve about 430 students in grades kindergarten through fifth.

The school day at Cox’s Creek Elementary is from 8:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Students may arrive at 7:30 each morning and are dismissed to classrooms at 8:00 a.m.


2016-17 Dismissal Procedure
In order to provide a safer environment for our students, Cox’s Creek is being proactive with the creation of new afternoon dismissal procedures.  For the 2016-17 school year, Cox’s Creek Elementary will dismiss promptly at 3:15 p.m. each day.  There are three options for dismissal.  For increased security and safety, we will no longer open the doors to the front foyer for parents to pick up during dismissal.  Please go here to learn about the improved afternoon dismissal procedures.  One afternoon dismissal option will need to be selected as your child’s primary afternoon routine; any change from the option selected must be submitted in writing via the student agenda.  This is in the best interest of students and their safety.  Thank you for helping us with this matter.
