CULLMAN, Ala. – The 2021 school year is almost here, and Cullman City Schools are preparing to welcome parents and students back to campus for open houses, a welcome return after the tradition went virtual and socially-distanced last year as a precaution due to the pandemic.

Cullman City Primary School, East Elementary School, West Elementary School, Cullman Middle School and Cullman High School are preparing to welcome students and parents back to campus to meet their teachers, tour the campuses and get a first-hand look at their child’s school ahead of the new school year.

“We are excited about the 2021-2022 school year and ideally working our way back to normalcy in comparison to the previous year and a half,” Superintendent Kyle Kallhoff said. “Our teachers and administrators have been working extremely hard to get our campuses ready and we’re preparing for a safe and successful new school year.”
