School Announcements


Longhorn parents and students, please remember to spend time everyday on the course work that is being assigned. Although we are not meeting in our traditional building, educational activities will continue and students are expected to work daily on their courses.  Students are also encouraged to spend 30 minutes a day of independent reading. Parents, we appreciate all of your support as we make every effort to make sure your child does not fall behind during this challenging time.



The Covid-19 Unified Command has announced today that all Panhandle Schools will remain closed for the remainder of the school year.  Hyannis Area Schools will continue to offer educational enrichment activities through a remote, online platform throughout the remainder of school year.  Graduation ceremonies will be impacted by this closure and will be postponed to a later date after consultation of all parties involved.  Please refer to the school Facebook page and web page for more details to this very fluid situation.
