Friday May 28th will be the last Blended Friday here in Conway Public Schools. Thursday May 27th is the last day students are required to attend school onsite. We would like to thank all of our families, and our students, for the strength, grace and flexibility you have shown this school year. We wish you a relaxing summer, and look forward to doing more great things together in August.

The Conway School Board has now removed the requirement for students and staff to wear masks anytime they are outside the school building. Masks are still required inside all CPSD buildings until May 28th.
Conway Public Schools will return to offering onsite instruction only for the 2021-22 school year. The district will not offer a virtual option for CPSD students.
All current CPSD students (virtual or onsite) will complete next year’s registration in July. You will receive a message when it’s time for returning registration. Nothing else needs to be done at this time.
If you would like your child to attend school virtually for 2021-22, options are available outside of CPSD. We have linked some information on our website under "Find it Fast." Click on "2021-22 Instruction."
Please keep in mind these are separate and independent educational agencies not affiliated with Conway Public Schools. Choosing one of these options is similar to transferring to/from another school district. Students enrolled in these academies will not have CPSD teachers or curriculum because they are no longer Conway Schools students. Students may re-enroll in CPSD when they are ready to return onsite.
Conway Public Schools believes onsite learning is what is best for our students next year. As always, we are committed to providing a safe and caring environment where all students can learn each day.
Boys entering 7th grade next year will have Spring Basketball Tryouts May 10th-12th from 4pm -5:30pm at the Courtway Basketball Gymnasium. Students must have a current physical turned in to Coach Wood before tryouts.
