Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) our district felt it was best to cancel based on the information received by Phelps County and Texas County Health Departments. With that said, we have provided school work packets for your child to complete and return for a grade. On the school page tab/class page, each teacher has links as well as their newsletters to provide additional assignments. We are also providing additional educational sites that your child would be able to access during this difficult time.

Scholastic is providing curriculum like studies on a day to day basis along with stories, videos, and puzzles for your child to explore. This is FREE!! We have found out that this website needs to be opened in Google Chrome for all the books to load. Sorry for the inconvenience!!


ABC Mouse, Adventure Academy, and Reading IQ is providing FREE at home access to these sites while our school district is closed. Click on the link below for each program then enter this school code: SCHOOL4944 and then create an account using your personal email address and a password of your choice.
