Conway Public Schools District News
After serving Conway Schools as Superintendent for the last 13 years, Dr. Greg Murry will retire in June, 2021. School Board members accepted his letter of retirement at Tuesday night's board meeting.
The deadline for decisions about fall re-entry is Friday, August 14 at noon. Parents who have not made a definitive decision or who wish to change their decision need to contact their child’s school to communicate this information. Once school starts, if adjustments are needed, each family will be afforded the opportunity to make one change during the fall semester. If the student is attending on-site and wishes to transition to virtual, or if the student is attending virtually and needs to return to on-site instruction, the parent should contact the building administrator to be apprised of next steps.
To help our students and families acclimate back into the school environment and learn new health and safety procedures in place at our school buildings, and to give teachers additional time to support individual students, Conway Public Schools will begin the 2020-21 School Year with a staggered start.
Only students whose last name begins with the letter(s) A-M will come to school on August 24th.
Only students whose last name begins with the letter(s) N-Z will come to school on August 25th.
All students will attend school on August 26th.
If students reside in the same household but have different last names, the principal will make all accommodations necessary to assist those families. Please contact your school if you have questions or need assistance.
During the first two days of school, teachers and staff will work with students to ensure the following:
Students have the technology and resources for use at home and at school.
Students receive support from the teacher to learn how to use the Learning Management System (Seesaw K-4; Schoology 5-12).
Students understand the protocols and procedures put in place for PPE usage and compliance with distancing and other guidelines from the Departments of Health and Education.
