Explore these means of communication to stay up to date on all the happenings within the South Panola School District.

  • We urge motorists who take part in car rider pick-up/drop-off to take extra caution when dealing with safety in car-rider lines. Young students walk near these vehicles and we ask that you keep your automobile in park while in line, wait for entrance/exiting signals from teachers on duty and be vigilant with your attention.

  • For bus riders, we ask for parents and students to be patient during the first days of school as the drivers and students become accustomed to the route and its stops. As the school year progresses, our bus drivers will be on a more defined schedule picking up students and dropping them off during the morning and afternoon.
