The District is currently exploring calendar options for the 2024-2025 school start date. We are asking for your feedback. Would you support efforts in seeking a waiver to start the 2024-2025 school year as soon as August 12, 2024, in place of August 19, 2024? Starting a week early will give the District a better chance of being out of school prior to Memorial Day. Click the link below to submit your response. https://forms.gle/qBtbBcfNmD59KSsw7

The Paragould Police Department is investigating a threatening note found on the Junior High School Campus. They have determined where the note originated and have arrested the student that wrote the note. The District encourages parents to speak with their children about the seriousness and potential consequences of making threats, 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.

The Division of Elementary and Secondary Education has issued a waiver that allows Districts to transition their calendar from traditional to alternate. Alternate calendars require 1,068 hours. Through the waiver process Districts have been allowed to "bank" instructional time and substitute that time for inclement weather days. The Paragould School District exceeds the minimum standard of 6 hours of instruction each day and will take advantage of the waiver process. Transitioning to an alternate calendar ensures that all PreK-12 students will NOT be required to make up inclement weather days for up to 7 days. The District is currently exploring calendar options for the 2024-2025 school start date. We are asking for your feedback.

The Paragould School District has been made aware of a random social media post. Authorities were notified and have determined where the post originated. This matter is currently under investigation. Out of precaution, additional officers will be on site. 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.

Hey OGMS families! We would LOVE to see you at our parent/teacher conferences tomorrow night from 4-7. Talk to your child's teachers, get grade reports, shop the book fair (last day!), and order a yearbook! Don't have an order form? That's okay! Forms will be available at the conferences, as well as old copies of yearbooks from years past. Also remember, NO SCHOOL ON FRIDAY! This is a teacher work day.

Book fair announcement: Please read! Hi all, we've been seeing quite a few students who are bringing in their parents' Cashapp cards and debit cards during our spring book fair. While we DO accept plastic for payment, the card needs to have the child's name on it. We understand that a lot of folks don't readily have cash on hand. However, for security reasons (and Mrs. Kathy's sanity), we ask that students don't come to school with their parents' debit/Cashapp/credit cards. The simplest solution is to create an eWallet account for your child (it works as an electronic gift card for Scholastic. To set up an eWallet account, please follow this link: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/oakgrovemiddleschool2 During parent/teacher conferences, parents and families are welcome to come and pay with credit cards, debit cards, cashapp cards, and so on. We hope this helps, and thank you for supporting the book fair and library!

Have you ordered a yearbook for your middle school child yet? If you're wanting to order a yearbook with your child's name on the cover, you'll want to get that order in by FRIDAY, January 26. Our yearbook sponsor sent home forms earlier this week that you can fill out and send in with payment, OR you can go to jostens.com and order a yearbook from there. Don't miss a chance at the memories!
