We are aware of the potential winter weather in our area over the next few days and we are working with other officials to make sure we make a well-informed decision. We know that not having a definite answer today is frustrating, but please know that we are not only concerned for your safety but also for your personal circumstances. Having a Virtual Day may cause many of our parents/guardians to miss work to care for their children. We are hesitant to pivot to a Virtual Day on Wednesday because we are unsure if and when the inclement weather may arrive. We do not want to cause our parents/guardians to miss out on work (paycheck), and we want students in school whenever possible. Because of this, we have asked teachers to send home any items students will need in case school pivots to virtual. As soon as the decision is finalized we will post to our mobile app, website, social media, contact the news stations, the local radio station, and push out a text to our parents. If you are in need of a hot spot to complete this virtual work, Bahar Pruitt will be at Central Office (located underneath the Panther Den) until 5:30pm TODAY. We know that during inclement weather there can be connectivity issues and power outages, please try not to stress about school work as we understand the circumstances and there will be time to make-up the work. Thank you for being patient with us during this time. We will inform you all as soon as we have more information.
February 8, 2021 Panther Nation- On Monday, February 8th, the Administration of Heber Springs Schools was made aware of a positive Covid-19 cases in Heber Springs Elementary and Heber Springs High School. The Administration has contacted the Arkansas Department of Health for further guidance, and through contact tracing by the ADH and HSSD, the individuals who were at risk for primary exposure have already been contacted. The Administration will continue to closely monitor this situation moving forward. I want to thank the families of those impacted for their patience and understanding as we worked through this situation. Dr. Andy Ashley

Heber Springs Schools is honored and thankful to have the support of the great citizens and businesses in our tremendous community. Beginning with February, we will recognize a business that has enhanced our school through volunteer work, financial contributions, or simply going above and beyond to support our schools as the Business of the Month. The business will be recognized and presented with a Business of the Month banner, news release, social media spotlight, and website publication. Our first Business of the Month selection goes to an organization that was the first to provide financial contributions for Heber Springs Elementary student supplies, financially matched student contributions to Fight Like A Kid, and purchased a new Utility Terrain Vehicle for our Panther Athletic Department. We are very excited to announce that Cowboy Chevrolet Buick GMC has been selected as the first Business of the Month for Heber Springs Schools. Congratulations and thank you for your continued support of the students at Heber Springs Schools.
