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.

Registration for the WINGS summer program will be May 1-10 at each school site.  Transportation and meals will be provided daily. Registration packets are available at each school.  Forms can also be filled out at each site during after-school hours from 3:00-5:30 p.m.

Holmes County Schools will be closed on Wednesday, April 5 due to the threat of severe weather throughout the day.  All after-school activities and WINGS programs are cancelled.  This decision is based on information received from local, state, and national Emergency Management offices and the National Weather Service.  The safety of our students and employees is our top priority.  We encourage everyone to monitor weather alerts closely and stay safe in this storm.

UPDATE (9:34 a.m.):

Please be advised that we have decided to keep students at our schools.  Due to the uncertainty and the movement of the weather front we cannot ensure that students will be delivered home prior to its arrival in our area.  The latest information from the National Weather Service and the local emergency management operations center indicates that the weather should be out of our area by afternoon loading times of buses, which is what originally precipitated the decision for early release.  

If parents wish to pick their children up from school today this will not be an issue.


All afterschool activities are still canceled.


UPDATE:  The early dismissal time has been changed to 11:00 a.m. due to updated weather forecasts.


Holmes District Schools will dismiss at 12 noon on Monday, April 3 due to the threat of severe weather entering our area on Monday afternoon.
