Heard County School System will be closed for children on Thursday, September 17th. School will be closed due to an overabundance of caution after watching the 11:30 a.m. National Weather Service briefing. We have large concerns for the amount of rain forecasted for our area. Dirt roads and gravel roads will likely be washed out and make travel impossible in some areas.

Good afternoon , We recently released information on the virtual learning option for K-5 students in the Heard County School System. We are beginning to receive responses via the commitment survey from those of you who plan to take advantage of this option for the upcoming school year. Some of you may still be considering this option and have yet to make your decision. As we are planning for class assignments for all of our students, it would be most helpful if those of you planning to sign up for the K-5 virtual learning option would do so by Wednesday July 22nd. This will allow us to more accurately assign classes prior to regular open house on the following Monday. Thank you for your assistance. Marianne Cole Assistant Superintendent
