ANNOUNCEMENTS

The basketball game between Western Grove and Omaha for November 12th has been postponed due to winter weather.  A makeup date will be determined later.

Monday night games will be played on Wednesday night at the same time as was scheduled for Monday.

School will be in session at its regular time.  It will be very cold in the morning, so bundle up.



Due to a technical glitch with Pearson, the math and science tests have been postponed for today.  They were having to fix problems from a mass update that took place over the weekend.  Hopefully this did not effect testing yesterday.  The initial issue was with the math test and IEP's.  Since we did not test in math yesterday, we should be fine.  The plan is to test on Thursday, November 7th,  if we get the all clear today.  


Update: As of 3pm, we do not know if we will be testing tomorrow or not.  Please plan to test on November 7th.

The Ozark Mountain School District has recently been approved for Alternative Method of Instruction.  AMI is to be used for up to five days missed due to inclement weather (snow days).  Students will be given a packet of work to take home.  In the event of the first missed day of school due to weather, the student will complete the assignments given for Day1 in each of the core areas (Math, English/Language Arts, History/Social Studies, and Science) and return the complete packet to the classroom teachers the next day that school is in session.  The student will get a grade, and it will not count as an absence.  If the student does not return the complete packet (all assignments) on the next day that school is in session, then the student will not get a grade and will be counted absent. Please keep both the completed assignments and the assignments for the other days in the packet.  Teachers will be checking to see if the unused assignments are in the packets.  On the next missed day, the student will complete the assignments for Day 2 and return the complete packet to the classroom teachers.  This will continue for each missed day up to five days. After five days, no additional packets will be handed out.  As a district, students will have to make up those snow days (Day 6 and beyond).  If students do not miss any school due to weather, then the work in the packets will not be required and will not be returned to the classroom teachers. Students will only be required to complete work for the number of days missed that are five or less.  If students work ahead, they do not turn in the work all at once.  No extra credit will be given for non-required assignments.

Students in Virtual Arkansas online classes and North Arkansas College online concurrent classes will continue on as normal.  If school is missed due to bad weather, Ms. Marshall will e-mail the director of Virtual Arkansas and Sarah Bing at North Arkansas College to pass the message on to the teachers that Western Grove students did not have school.  This will let the teachers know that some students who do not have internet at home could notwork on assignments during the snow days.

Students in classes at North Arkansas College Technical Center will need to find out via TV or the radio to see if North Arkansas College is having classes that day.  If you have to miss due to weather and North Arkansas College is having classes, be sure to pick up an orange card in the office to take to the Tech Center campus.  No school bus service will be available on days when OMSD is not having school.  If students can make it to class at the Tech Center, then no orange card will be needed.


If an assignment is lost, you may go to the student activities tab on this website and find the AMI Work Page.  You may download a copy of the assignment from that page.  

Snow routes mean paved roads ONLY.  If you have any questions, contact your child's bus driver for more information about your specific route.  The implementation of snow routes will be announced on REMIND, local TV news and their websites, radio, Facebook, and Twitter.
