School Logos

After years of using many, well-known Indian images, the Hallsville Board of Education approved trademarked Indian images in December 2014. These logos make our District recognizable and identifiable within the communities around us.

These images are owned by the Hallsville School District.  Businesses, organizations, or private individuals wishing to use these trademarked images must first seek permission from the Hallsville District Communications Office. Unauthorized use of these images is not permitted.
