Kindergarten Registration for the 2021-2022 is going on now for the 2021-22 school year.   Please call the office at 870-429-5215 for more information.

Click here for the School Choice form.

The juniors who did not test on March 9th will have an opportunity to take the makeup test on Tuesday, April 13th.  

This year there are two forms that have to be considered.

-The first is the opt out form.  By having the parent sign and return this form, it states that they are refusing to have their child participate in the free test here at school.  

-The second form is the opt in form for non-test information.  If the parent opts in, then the student will stay after testing and fill out information granting scores to be shared with colleges or universities.  Failure to return this form does not prevent the student from testing, just from reporting scores.  


Parents may print off a copy of the form, sign, take a picture, and return the form to Ms. Marshall at mmarshall@omsd.k12.ar.us.  The parent may also fill out the corresponding Google form to grant permission or opt out of testing.  Belo

If you have been put in quarantine:

--It does not mean you have the Covid-19 virus, but you may have been directly exposed.

--It does not mean that everyone in the school has been exposed to the virus.  In many cases, the exposure is limited to a particular grade or class. 

--You will not come to school for the time that has been set by the school to stay home.  This ranges between 10-14 days.

--You need to stay home. If you have the virus, you could spread it if you are out and about. 

--If your family stays together, you will all need to quarantine.  If your family quarantines separately, those who were not possibly exposed could continue with work outside the home.  

--If your family quarantines together, consider using grocery pickup to avoid spreading the virus in stores.


Primary exposure:   Possible direct exposure from someone that had a test come back positive.  This will result in a quarantine.

Secondary exposure: No direct exposure from someone that had a test come back positive.  You will not be quarantined, but be observant if your health changes and you develop symptoms.  


If you have questions, please call your school principal, school nurse, or Ozark Mountain School District Point of Contact Person - Ariel Kelly at St. Joe School.
