This is an announcement from the Heard County School System: We are currently under a Tropical Storm Warning in Heard County. I wanted to let everyone know due to the possibility of high sustained winds and even higher wind gusts which could lead to downed trees and power lines; we have decided to cancel school for tomorrow, October 29th. This applies to all Heard County School System faculty/staff. This applies to all face to face students and K-5 virtual students. We do not have the authority to shut down GA Virtual School. The transportation guidelines suggest we take buses off the road when winds exceed 35 mph. See the attached pics for the forecast for our area. Some portions of our county are in the 55-60 mph forecasted zone. We discussed delaying school a couple of hours as well, but that would put kids at the bus stop at 8:00 a.m. The current forecast has everything coming in between midnight and 8:00 a.m. We don't want our kids out in those potential conditions. There will be no extracurricular activities allowed tomorrow.
It’s School Bus Driver Appreciation Week! The Heard County School System would like to say “thank you” to all of our professionals who are charged with transporting our students safely to and from school each day. These professionals set the tone for a great school day each and every day! If you get a chance, help us let them know how much we appreciate what they do for our children!

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.
