  • RDMS: Due to limited seating for our basketball games, we are asking that boy player families not enter until after the girls games have been completed. We are asking that our girl player parents leave immediately after the girls game in order to make room for our other parents. We are also asking that no students attend the game without supervision, and students should be sitting with their families during the games.

This will take place in the storm shelter, if you are interested in trying out for 7th grade boys' basketball you need to make plans to attend. Try-outs for 7th grade boys' basketball have tentatively been set for October 28th, 29th, and 30th. Virtual students who are interested in trying out do NOT need to attend this meeting, instead you need to email Coach Lefler your name in order to be added to the try-out list.

  • Conway Public Schools will offer blended learning days on Fridays each week, beginning next Friday, October 2nd.  

    “Blended Fridays” give parents/students the option of learning from home or school. Students who choose to learn from home on Fridays will not be counted absent. Instruction on blended Fridays will be 100% virtual. These are catch-up days for teachers and students: there will be no new content taught or major assessments given. 

    CPSD is making this change primarily to help ease the burden on our faculty. We have listened and we trust the feedback received from our teachers: the amount of work required with our current model of instruction is not sustainable. Blended Fridays will give teachers protected time for the added tasks that have come with this unusual school year, and are designed to bring relief to everyone: parents, students, and staff. This is a hard time for all of us. We hope this will help. 

    New schedule for onsite students (beginning September 28)
    Monday-Thursday: Onsite Learning (students continue to come to school in person)
    Friday: Blended Learning (students may login to LMS (Seesaw or Schoology) from home for virtual learning OR come to school in person to complete virtual work on campus

  • RDMS: The federal government has extended a nationwide waiver giving free meals to all CPSD students through December 31st.

    What you need to know:

    Because of funding regulations, we must still determine a student’s meal status (Free, Reduced, or Paid) this fall.

    If you qualify or think you qualify for Free or Reduced lunch this year, please complete the application now.

    The waiver applies to both breakfast and lunch each school day.

    The waiver applies to all meals purchased beginning Monday August 31st. So- if your student purchased any meals this week, their account will be credited.

    A la carte choices are not included under this waiver. These items must be paid for at the time of service.

    The waiver does not affect outstanding lunch balances from last year. If you owe money on your child’s account, please take care of these charges.

    The waiver currently extends through the end of the fall semester, and we will begin charging student accounts according to meal status in January.

  • RDMS: 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.

    You will need your CPSD login and password to complete the Annual Required Forms.  This information has been emailed to you if we have your correct email address.  If you do not have your login, or you need other assistance, please call your child’s school where someone will be available to help you.

    Annual Required Forms should be completed for all students prior to the first day of school. Students will not be able to use computers or have access to digital learning platforms until parents have signed the mandatory usage agreements found in returning registration.

    Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.  We are looking forward to a great school year!
