Effective June 1, 2016 until further notice, the Hwy. 90 entrance to Holmes County High School will be closed due to new construction. All traffic should enter the school from Sandpath Road. A temporary reception area will be established in the Agriculture Education area. Once you enter the school grounds, there will be signs directing you to this temporary reception area. Anyone entering the school will need to report to the temporary reception area for assistance. Thank you for your patience during this time.

President Obama has issued a letter from the US Department of Justice and Department of Education relating to transgender rights. Holmes County Schools will NOT prescribe to the directions of the memo. This is NOT a change in law and we as a school district will NOT change our practices or policies that are currently in place. Providing a safe and secure learning environment for ALL students has always been and will continue to be our top priority in decision making. Should concerns be expressed by students, parents, or colleagues please assure them there are NO CHANGES nor any being planned in Holmes County School District’s policies or procedures. Please refer any questions to the District Office or me.
This overreach of President Obama and the Federal Government is troubling to me as a local School Superintendent. I am startled by the process and procedure utilized. I feel confident Governor Scott and our Florida Legislators will support Florida Educators in this issue.
