This week there will be no elementary FACES programing after school on Tues, October 20th and Thursday, October 22nd, due to parent teacher conferences on those two evenings. If your child attends FACES on either of those days, and you have special instructions on how they are to go home on Tuesday and Thursday of this week, please contact the school office by note or phone call.
Good afternoon! We have almost made it through the first nine weeks successfully! Thank you for your support, cooperation, and trust in us with your child each day! We appreciate that you, as parents/guardians, are a vital part of our team that works together to provide the best environment for your child to grow! Next week we will be having Targeted Parent-Teacher Conferences next week on Tuesday, October 20th, and Thursday, October 22nd from 3:30-6:30 PM. To safely conduct conferences this year, teachers will or may already have scheduled appointments with you. Should you need to communicate with a teacher, please contact her/him to schedule an appointment. Appointments may be held face to face, by phone, or virtually. All conferences are being held by appointment only. Face masks and health screenings are required to enter the buildings. All parents are encouraged to reach out to teachers at any time they have questions or concerns. Thank you for your understanding as we have to undertake these conferences in this manner and for your continued support this school year! Mrs. Curry

Last week, the Arkansas Child Nutrition Unit announced that the USDA has extended the Seamless Summer Operation program through December 31st, 2020- or until funding has been exhausted. This means that all students will be able to eat one school breakfast and one school lunch per day at no cost. Any student wanting an extra breakfast, lunch, or à la carte item must purchase those items separately. Students will still need to use their ID cards.
Parents, We are excited to announce that today (Tuesday, September 8th) is the first day of our FACES elementary after school program. If your child is enrolled in the program, they will be staying at school after dismissal on the days your child is signed up to attend. We will be following the same hygiene and social distancing guidelines after school, that we do during the school day. You can pick up your child in the elementary cafeteria anytime before 6pm. Per school guidelines, everyone ten and older must wear a mask when in the building to pickup a student. You can reach the after school program by dialing 701-1700, and selecting extension #1779.
Reminder that today is Early Release Wednesday. K-4 car rider dismissal starts at 1:40, and buses dismiss at 2:20. PreK pickup is at 2:20 as soon as buses leave campus.
To allow our staff to work as professional learning communities, all dismissal times will be one hour earlier every Wednesday beginning tomorrow August 26, 2020. K-4 car rider pick up begins at 1:40 and all bus riders at 2:20. 5-12 car riders begin at 2:20.
Thank you so much to all our parents for helping make today a great first day back to school! We appreciate your trust in us, support, and cooperation following all our new procedures.
