Time To Make Superintendent Mike Poore Work From the Roof!

If students, staff and community members fill Superintendent Poore's office with non-perishable food items by February 8, he will work from the roof of the admin building on February 9. Food will be donated to local pantries. Thanks in advance for your support!

Congrats to Mann art teacher, Lisa Kindrick, and her talented students: Yzid del Toro, Audiya Muhammad, and Lauren Steele on their winning entry in the “Poore Man on the Roof” Campaign. Their art work (shown below) will be featured over the next week to help encourage donations of non-perishable food items to benefit local pantries.

Important Flu Safety Tips

Dear Parents:

With news that the flu epidemic is impacting families nationwide, we wanted to remind you and your students of important health tips.  Health officials remind us of these four tips which are common sense and practiced daily, but are the best defense to keep yourself and your family well:

  1. wash your hands frequently
  2. use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
  3. avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  4. avoid physical contact with anyone who displays symptoms

Flu symptoms include:

  • fever
  • cough
  • sore throat
  • chills
  • fatigue
  • body aches
  • Vomiting
  • diarrhea

If your child exhibits any of these symptoms, please do not send him or her to school, just as a precautionary measure and to ensure that others do not become sick as well.

In our schools we have implemented a daily routine to emphasize frequent hand washing, using hand sanitizer when entering a room and wiping down the desks at the end of the day with disinfectant wipes.

The district works closely with the Arkansas Department of Health and the CDC and has a pandemic flu policy in place; however, we also need to work together as a school family to prevent the spread of the flu.  Thank you for your attention to this very important and timely reminder.
