A Special Note from the Superintendent:

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to everyone who had a part in providing assistance during the bomb threat at Bethlehem yesterday.  The administration, faculty, and staff are to be commended for their professionalism, organization, and concern for students throughout the day’s events.  I appreciate the quick response from the Holmes County Sheriff’s Department, Dothan Police Department bomb squad, and other area first responders.  Special gratitude is extended to Carmel Assembly of God and their staff for their willingness to open their doors to us as the relocation site.  I also appreciate the many community members who volunteered at the church.   Parents, thank you for your patience and cooperation throughout the day, especially during the sign-out process.  The safety and well-being of our students is our top priority, and at the end of the day, every student was safe and accounted for and home with their families.  I am thankful to be part of such a wonderful school system and community that puts children first!


Terry L. Mears, Superintendent
