The Paragould School District has been made aware of a threat made over social media. Authorities are working to investigate the anonymous post to determine where the post originated. Out of precaution, additional officers will be on the high school campus.
We have been working closely with the Paragould Police Department and have been told that the threat may have originated overseas. The safety of our students and staff is high priority for the district. We will continue to work with the Paragould Police Department to investigate this matter to the fullest and keep the public aware of developments to the best of our ability.
The District encourages parents to speak with their children about the seriousness and potential consequences of making threats online, even as a joke. All threats are taken seriously and investigated, and any students caught making threats may face possible criminal charges and expulsion from school. Student safety will always be paramount within the Paragould School District.
Don't forget, the first ever JROTC Trunk or Treat is TONIGHT from 6:00 - 8:00pm. Due to forecasted rain, it will be held inside the JROTC building on the PHS campus. Parking is available by the PJHS gyms and JROTC cul-de-sac.
Due to the high probability of rain this afternoon, the JROTC Trunk or Treat scheduled for today from 6:00-8:00pm will be moved inside the JROTC building. The JROTC building is located on the high school campus. Go Rams!
The Paragould High School homecoming assembly will begin at 1:30 today. You will be able to watch the assembly by clicking on the link below. https://youtu.be/DIeFhpiPcXY

Health and safety will always remain a top priority for the Paragould School District. In April of 2022 the district discontinued the practice of contact tracing/quarantining of probable close contacts and reimplemented policy 4.34 as the district’s response to student illnesses. We continue to utilize policy 4.34 to guide our response to illnesses.
Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate at home for 5 days from the onset of symptoms or a positive test. The Arkansas Department of Health guidance states that the isolated individual may return to school on day 6 with a mask and must continue to wear the mask around others through the 10th day. If the Individual is unable to wear a mask, he/she will be required to continue to isolate for the full 10 days.
If you have any questions regarding COVID-19 please contact Lynn Treece at 870-565-8686 or email email@example.com

The Paragould School District Master Facility Plan includes a PE facility on the high school campus. As part of the planning process, the district has arranged for a public meeting to take place on Thursday, August 25 at 6:00pm in the high school auditorium. During the meeting we will discuss partnership funding and various options for future construction.

Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) is a federal program designed to provide food support to families with children who were receiving free and reduced price school meals and missed school for COVID related absences. It can help families pay for food when students are absent from school due to a COVID-19 related isolation/quarantine. The Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), in collaboration with the Department of Human Services (DHS), received approval to operate this program in response to the COVID-19 related school closures for school year 2021-22.
The State’s plan provides P-EBT benefits to SNAP and non-SNAP households with children who temporarily lost access to free or reduced price school meals due to a COVID related isolation/quarantine. This plan will provide P-EBT benefits to students who: 1) qualify for free or reduced meal benefit and 2) were absent from school due to a COVID related isolation/quarantine. Students will qualify to receive P-EBT benefits if the answer is yes to both statement #1 and statement #2.
The state has formalized a parent initiated option for meal application benefits. Access to the online application can be found on the district website or by clicking on the link below.
Once the application is submitted, the school district will verify the absences, approve the application, and submit the student’s information to the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education. DESE will work alongside DHS to process the benefit for each household. Benefits will be provided at a rate of $7.10 per day/days absent, due to a COVID related isolation/quarantine.
The deadline for a household to complete the application process and submit the application is July 29, 2022.
The Paragould School District will consolidate collected student information and submit the information to the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) by August 12, 2022.
Feel free to contact your child’s school for more information.
