Students, to keep from getting behind in your online classes, you can work on them at night and on weekends at home.  If you do not have Internet at your house, download your reading at school onto your computer and read at home.  You have access to Microsoft Word and PowerPoint on your computer, so you will be able to work on assignments.  Those programs do not require Internet access.  Then when you return to school, you can upload your work.  

Several students are not taking advantage of your time at home to work on your classes. 


Click here to access the Titan School Solutions site.  You will have to make an account before your first use. After the account is made, you may use that link to login into your account.   You may still pay with cash or check at the school.  There is a $3 charge each time this system is used.

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.  

The restricted entry system is now active.  Please drop all students off at the front door.  Please don't drop students off before 7:30 am.


Click here for the visitor video demostrating how to gain access.  Note:  Only faculty and staff members have the scannable cards.  On the Western Grove Campus, you can still walk in to the office.  After checking in, you will be given access to the area in which you wish to visit.  Click here for St. Joe.  Click here for Bruno Pyatt.


Lunch: Students coming from outside buildings at lunch (gym, agri) can ring the intercom by the cafeteria door and you will be given access to the cafeteria.  Students are not allowed to open the doors at any time.


Students who are tardy will need to go the office via the front door by the office to be buzzed in to the rest of the building.  Do not bang on other doors and expect to be let in the building.  There will be teachers in the hallways during passing periods to let students in the building. 


We are sorry if this is an inconvenience, but the safety of your children is of utmost importace to us.

Ms. Monique Wilson attended and presented at the Arkansas Computer Science Conference on July 2nd.  Governor Asa Hutchison, Commissioner Johnny Key, CSO Anthony Owen, and author Paul Hamilton also spoke at this conference.  Ms. Wilson also won a 3D printer for students to use in the library.
