Parents and Students, I just want to take a few minutes to say how excited everyone is that school is about to get underway for the 22-23 school year. All students start back on August 15th with the tardy bell ringing at 7:55, and the dismissal bell at 3:05. We have several new staff members including Mr. Oliver teaching history, Ms. Crowley teaching band, Mrs. Fortson teaching agriculture, Ms. Rorick teaching English, Ms. Capps teaching resource, and we want to welcome back Mrs. Mann as our Choir Teacher. Everyone has been working hard to plan classroom instruction and has been attending summer training to make this the best school year ever. We are focused on providing an excellent educational atmosphere as always with an emphasis on safety. All students will be given school supplies and a Chromebook, but students will be responsible for providing a backpack. Just a reminder to parents and students that we require clear or mesh backpacks only. To provide students with a strong educational experience, attendance is key. Students may not miss more than ten days per semester. According to handbook policy, the school will only accept six absences with a parent phone call or hand written note. Doctor notes and other professional notes are always accepted. Students that have a positive Covid Test provided by a medical facility will not be counted absent. They are encouraged to stay caught up on work daily so they do not fall behind on their school work. As always, the school is here to help our students succeed and flourish. We encourage positive and meaningful communication with school officials and teachers. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or comments about your student's progress. I also want to emphasize that we want students working during class time so cell phone use in the classroom is not permitted. Students may use cell phones between classes and at lunch if used responsibly. We encourage parents to keep up with their student's progress by checking grades and attendance on Home Access Center (HAC). Federal funding to pay for student meals is no longer available so meals will no longer be free for the 22-23 school year. Please fill out the free and reduced application to see if you qualify for help with meal prices. The application can be found on the school website. If you have any questions, please reach out to the high school office for assistance. I look forward to a strong partnership with our parents and students this year for a successful school year. Thanks, David Gilmore Ed.S Principal Eureka Springs High School
