For the public's information: Earlier today, a Holmes County school bus was involved in a single-vehicle accident. No students were on the bus at the time.

We are planning to offer a one-semester Driver’s Education course at each school during the 2017-18 school year.  Students will receive a half credit upon successful completion of the course.  This course will also fulfill the seat time hours required by many auto insurance companies in order to qualify for discounts.  This course offering is dependent upon enrollment, so students interested in taking the course need to sign up with the guidance counselor by Friday, May 19.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child’s school.  

Chairman Johnson has called a special board meeting on Wednesday, May 10 at 5:00 p.m. in the Board Room at the District Office.  Click the Related Files link below for the agenda.
