February Students of the Month at Heber Springs Middle School 6th Grade: Sasha Grove 7th Grade: Rylee Mays 8th Grade: Ryan Higginbotham
Panther Families- I know Monday mornings are always stressful, and it looks like I have created the Monday of all Monday mornings. I am sorry for the stress, frustration, and difficulties I caused each of you this morning. I know I threw a major wrench into your normal routine, and I apologize for that. After driving yesterday, I felt confident we could have onsite school today, but after driving this morning, I was clearly mistaken. As I was driving around this morning outside of town, the roads were in good shape, but when I got into town, there were many roads that were covered with black ice. So I made a quick decision to delay school to try and prevent anyone from having an accident. Hopefully, all driving hazards were adverted. I apologize for the short notice and the abrupt change this morning. Again, I am sorry. Dr. Andy Ashley Superintendent
Today we have driven over 100 miles on our bus routes, and the roads were clear and safe for buses to travel. Because of this, Heber Springs Schools will be in session tomorrow. School buses will run at their regular time. I know there still may be some driveways and side roads that could contain snow and ice. Please use extreme caution while traveling to school. To help alleviate any concerns, attendance will not be taken on Monday, February 22, 2021. Students not present on campus will be expected to complete their work virtually or may make-up the work when they return. Each family will need to make their own decision on what is best for them. Bus routes will be reevaluated in the morning to determine if there have been any changes to their condition. Notification will be sent if there are any changes.
