Citizens of the Month


We now have reordered a small supply and have 60 yearbooks remaining.  Students can still purchase a yearbook, but packages are no longer available. 

The cost is 25.00 for a hardback yearbook.

Last year we sold out, and anticipate running out this year as well, so buy yours soon.  They will be on sale while supplies last.  Payments can be made to the front office by cash or check to HES.

The 2015 yearbook looks AWESOME, and we thank the students on the yearbook staff who made it look great, and also thanks to the parents who supported us through buying an ad or a fifth grade baby spot.

We anticipate receiving them in early May.  We’ll have time for students to sign each other’s yearbooks when they arrive, time and date TBA

Online Payment Option

The Hart County School Nutrition Program is participating in mySchoolBucks, an on-line system that will allow parents/guardians to make deposits into your student’s school meal account or view cafeteria purchases. A $2.00 transaction fee covers the cost of processing online transactions. Public school districts are non-profit organizations funded by tax dollars. The transaction fee paid by parents goes directly to the payment processor not to the school district. We offer online payments as an additional prepayment option and convenience to parents.
