HOLMES COUNTY The Holmes District School Board has announced that all school supplies, to include all sanitation supplies, will be purchased for all Holmes County School District students for the 2021-2022 school year. A list of needed supplies was provided by each school’s principal, and supplies will be provided based on those lists. Items parents can expect their child(ren) to receive are:
All consumable supplies (paper, pencils, pens, crayons, glue sticks, highlighters, markers).
– if requested by a teacher for grade level
-Earbuds or headphone as appropriate per grade levels request or academic needs
-3-ringed Binders, notebooks, marble composition notebooks
All elementary supplies will be in students’ homeroom classes upon their arrival on the first day of school and will be distributed as needed throughout the year.
Middle and high school students will receive supplies the first day of school with surplus supplies held by teachers for replenishing as needed. Students should see their homeroom teacher or the front office for needed materials throughout the year.
Superintendent Buddy Brown says this is a blessing for the districts families.
We are fortunate enough to be able to purchase all supplies for all students in the district, said Brown. We hope that this helps to relieve some of the burden parents face coming back after the pandemic.
