Have a great and safe Spring Break. Please take this time to relax, enjoy family & friends, and have fun. You young men and women deserve it. I truly appreciate how hard you have worked given the circumstances. You guys are amazing, and I am so proud of each of you (every student in the building). Let’s finish strong once you get back. I love you. Take care, be safe, and God Bless!

Thank you for your understanding and thank you to all of our county/city employees who haven’t stopped working since this passed through. #onebravenation
This message is from Heard County Middle School. As you know Heard County Schools will have a 2 hour delay tomorrow. This means that school will start 2 hours later than the original time. The doors will open at 9:10 (car riders please follow the same routine that you usually do in the mornings). The bell to release kids to class will be at 9:30. The students will be considered tardy at 9:45. We will have breakfast for our kids. The breakfast procedures will be a little different. We will share them with the students tomorrow morning. Please be safe and God Bless.
This message is from Heard County Middle School. Current 8th Grade Parents: Believe it or not!!! It's that time. Our babies are getting ready for the high school. Your child has asked you to review a letter and a document with a list of Elective classes at the high school. Hopefully, you have reviewed the documents, sign them, and had your child return them. Please take notice of the homeroom date for your child. Also, you will need to call the school to set up an appointment if you haven't done so already. Please note that we will continue to follow the COVID guidelines from the CDC and the DPH. Please do not enter the building if you are sick, have symptoms or if you've been around someone with COVID. You will need to wear a mask and have your temperature checked in the front office. Please make sure you practice social distance as much as you can. Thank you for your help with this process. Also, please try to minimize the number of people you bring to this registration. We will be in the Library, and we wish to keep the noise to a very low level. Thank you and have a Blessed Day. Please Note the Dates Below: March 10th: Buchanan and Higgins March 11th: Campbell and White March 16th: Cornelius and Hill
