Due to the availability of federal grant funds, Heard County Schools will be able to provide school supplies and a backpack with each student's ID holder for ALL students in grades PK-12th grade for the 2022-2023 school year. Parents will not need to purchase bookbags or school supplies for students for the upcoming school year. Supplies and backpacks will be distributed to students during the first few days of school.

INFORMATION ON STUDENT SCHOOL SUPPLIES- There are some school supplies that are still on back order that have not been received. We hope to have these supplies shortly. Please be aware of this issue if your child comes home without supplies you thought they would have or mentions they had to share some materials at school today. We should have all supplies soon so all students will have a full set of their own needed supplies. Sorry for the inconvenience.
