January 13, 2022
With the safety and welfare of our students and staff in mind, the decision has been made to cancel school for Friday, January 14, 2022. The primary reason is that Holmes County and the Holmes District Schools are seeing a spike in COVID and other seasonal illnesses. The increased number of staff members being ill has directly impacted our ability to run district schools with a reasonable number of adults to supervise the students in attendance.
Extracurricular activities may continue as planned, at the discretion of each school. Please check with your individual school to verify any changes in these situations.
Our thought is that by providing a Wellness Day in addition to the federal holiday on Monday, students and staff who are ill will have a time for recovery, and for everyone, a time to avoid possible exposure to illness. Schools will be back in session on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.
Buddy L. Brown,
Superintendent of Schools
