The Bankhead National Forest is planning to burn 1238 acres today near Ashridge Community in Winston County. During today’s burn, the public will notice Forest Service fire crews and equipment. Smoke may also be visible on Winston County Road 60 and AL HWY 195, located South and West of this burn area.
The wind is expected to be out of the South and carry the smoke to the North towards Moulton. As the temperatures cool later today, the smoke may begin to settle down the Caney Creek drainage. Some settling may also occur around the general area of the burn. Signs will be posted if needed. If encountering smoke on roadways, please slow down, turn on your low-beam headlights and use caution when encountering prescribed burning operations and smoke.
Remember, a prescribed burn is a controlled fire ignited by professionally trained and experienced Forest Service personnel. A prescribed burn is carefully planned to improve the health of your national forest. If you have any questions, please contact the Bankhead Fire Dispatch at 205-489-5111.

A child being registered for kindergarten must be five (5) years old on or before September 1, 2016, before he/she can attend school for the 2016-2017 school year.

A team of Kindergarten teachers will be administering the HES Kindergarten Screener to all children who will attend kindergarten in the fall of 2016. Thus, it will be necessary for you to bring your pre-school child with you to registration so we can administer this short screening instrument. We plan to make this a fun experience for the children. You can help by planning to make this a special outing for you and your pre-schooler. In an effort to avoid over-crowded conditions and give each child individual attention, we ask that you adhere to the following schedule:
LAST NAMES BEGINNING WITH A-L 8:30-11:30
We realize that some of you work and can only come at certain times. We will adjust our schedule to accommodate working parents.
It is important that all parents or guardians register eligible children on March 18.
Further inquiries can be made by calling Haleyville Elementary School at 486-3405.
