Fall Break

October 18, 2016

Fall Break will be the week of October 24-28.  Classes will resume on Monday, October 31.  
Eddie Dixon, Holmes County Superintendent of Schools, recently received the Chief Executive Officer Leadership Development Program diploma. Dixon was presented the diploma by Senator Bill Montford, Florida Association of School Superintendents CEO and Diann Morell, Director of Training and Development. It is the highest certification a Florida Superintendent can earn. “I am very proud because only about one-third of Florida Superintendents ever complete the two year program and it is entirely voluntary. I have always felt a responsibility to represent the people of Holmes County in the best light possible in Tallahassee.” said Dixon.  Pictured are Senator Montford, Superintendent Dixon, and Ms. Morell.
There will be no school on Friday, October 7.  Classes will resume on Monday, October 10.   We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Rodeo Weekend. 

The first two weeks of October are Disability History and Awareness Weeks! Section 1003.4205, Florida Statutes, entitled Disability History and Awareness Instruction, was signed into law in 2008. It requires school districts to designate the first two weeks of October as Disability History and Awareness Weeks and also promotes providing instruction for students in all public schools to expand student knowledge, understanding, and awareness of individuals with disabilities, disability history, and the disability rights movement.
