It is with great excitement to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.  Holmes District Schools constantly strive to ensure our students achieve their highest potential by providing a rigorous curriculum that will ensure success in college or their chosen career. 

Several issues have occurred this past year that have changed our lives forever.  Your children’s safety has always been the most paramount in the education of our students.  When our doors open for the 2018-2019 school year each of our schools will have a dedicated School Resource Officer; also access to our students will be constantly monitored and changed as needed.

The School Board is committed to providing the resources necessary to educate our students and ensure they graduate college or career ready. We provide meaningful professional development for teachers that will be beneficial in the classroom and will impact student achievement.  In addition to a strong academic preparation, we offer industry certification programs through our high schools in agriculture, welding, business, culinary, and aerospace.  These certifications provide students with post-graduation employment opportunities.

Holmes County Schools welcome and encourage parent and community involvement.  As a team, we can work together to create a solid foundation for learning to help ensure the future success of our young citizens. 

We are excited about the 2018-19 school year and the opportunities it will bring for our students to succeed.  We hope you will join us on our mission to provide a sustainable pathway for all Holmes County students to realize and achieve their dreams.

Sincerely,

Terry Mears
