School Handbook


Hardesty Public Schools is located in the southeastern corner of Texas County in the Oklahoma Panhandle just ten miles north of the Oklahoma/Texas state line very near the heart of “No Man’s Land.” 

The school district covers approximately 250 square miles.  The school is the life of the Town of Hardesty.  It is the town center.  It is the focus of the people.  Therefore, education is of great importance.  We are excited about meeting the challenge of providing the students of the Hardesty School District with the finest educational experience possible. 




It is with great sorrow that I inform you that we have lost a respected member of our Hardesty community, Mrs. Bernell Richards. The funeral is scheduled for Thursday, April 27, 2017, at 2:00 p.m.  Because
much of the community and many of the teachers and staff would like to show their respect and support for the Richards family, we are opting to close
the school this Thursday at
1:00 PM to give families the opportunity to pay their respects. 

The bus will run at 1:00 PM.
If you typically pick up your
child after school, please be here by 1:00 PM. If your child walks home, please ensure that someone will be there when
they arrive.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you or your family.  Thank you for your understanding as we
try to add a little comfort to
this grieving family in their
time of need. 

If you have any questions,
please contact me or Mrs. Kerr
at 888-4258.
