Attention:

After much deliberation, district leaders and school board members have decided that postponing the start date of the 20-21 school year is in the best interest of our students, faculty, and community.

Keeping everyone healthy and safe  is extremely important to us. With the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 virus, we think  this is the best decision for everyone.

District leaders will begin working on an updated 20-21 school calendar this week. We will use September 8th, as our proposed start date. Once school board approved, the calendar will be posted on the district website as soon as possible. 

We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

AMITE COUNTY RETURN TO SCHOOL

After careful review of the survey results, the Amite County School District has chosen to use the Hybrid schedule as we return to school.

We would like to ensure all community members that we will do everything possible to keep our children safe each and every day.

Thank you for your support,

Superintendent Don Cuevas
