• All Winston County Schools Virtual

    Due to increasing numbers of students/staff who are either COVID positive, experiencing symptoms, or exposed, we have made the decision for all Haleyville City Schools to be Virtual Thursday, January 20th-Friday, January 21st. We feel it is important for us to attempt to stop any further spread in HCS by taking time to deep clean and disinfect our buildings over the next few days.

    All students will be given devices (if needed) and any assignments they need today so that they can learn over the next 2 days from home. If you experience any trouble with online learning, your teachers will be on campus. You can call your student’s school, and teachers will get back with you as soon as possible.
    HHS has a home basketball game vs. Jasper Thursday night. Only immediate family members are encouraged to attend these games. Masks are REQUIRED and temperatures will be taken at the door.
    As always, student safety is our top priority. Please Share! #HCSSLI
    All other Winston County Schools will be virtual on Thursday and Friday also.

  • Milk and Bread

    This is a repost from February 2011:

    For many years, whenever snow has been forecast for Haleyville, many people, particularly the older citizens, rushed to the super markets to buy milk and bread. Young people, “Yankees” and other well-meaning folks laughed at us grey-haired “fools.” I do not even drink milk, but I bought a gallon anyway just before the last snow storm a couple of weeks ago. Five inches stopped traffic and kept kids out of schools for five days.

    The reason for this unique phenomenon of disappearing milk and bread from the grocery shelves goes back to 1958. The following account is based on a real life experience. Continue reading
