  • MVES: Good Evening Marguerite Vann Families,

    Our Holiday Parties will be held on Thursday, December 16th. At this time, the district is allowing ONE parent/guardian per student to attend, as long as the numbers of COVID cases remain low. Please remember, all parents must bring a valid ID to enter the building. Students are limited to ONE parent/guardian. No siblings are allowed to come to parties. If you are planning on attending the party, please email your child’s teacher so that they can plan accordingly. In an abundance of caution, we have staggered our party times to limit the number of visitors in the building. For this reason, parties will also be held to 30 minutes.

    The schedule for parties is:

    12:15 Kindergarten

    1:00 1st Grade

    1:15 3rd Grade

    1:45 4th Grade

    2:00 Williams/Massirer

    2:15 2nd Grade

  • MVES: Good afternoon, Vann Family!

    Join the PTO and Vann community from 5:00-6:00 pm in the back parking lot of Vann for caroling, with cocoa and cookies provided by the PTO. Festive attire is encouraged and dress warmly because this event will be outside.

    **Please bring hats, gloves, and scarves if you can for families in need.**

    Each grade will lead the carolers in a song and we'll have plenty to sing together! Lyrics for carols will be provided.

    We hope to see you there!

  • MVES: Vann Families...

    Please make sure to include Nurse Mandi in any communication about sickness that your child encounters that would keep them home. It is very important for her to be apprised of the situation. They can simply include her in the email sent to the teacher: townsenda@conwayschools.net.

    Thank you!

  • Vann Families,

    If you would still like to purchase a Marguerite Vann school t-shirt for your child, we will be collecting order forms and money until Friday, September 3rd. If you need another order form, let us know!

    In order for your child to be issued a school owned chromebook, they are required to turn in their Chromebook Agreement form. You may choose to purchase insurance on the chromebook for $20 to cover the repair or replacement cost in the case of damage to the device.

    Have a great evening!

  • MVES: Starting Monday, August 30th, Carl Stuart Road will become a ONE WAY street STARTING at 7:00 am instead of 7:30 am. When cars are waiting to drop off students for Vann and Carl Stuart, eastbound traffic is not feasible. Hopefully, this will eliminate this issue in the mornings. There are new signs to remind you of this change. Thank you!

  • Monday, August 16th is the first day of school for the Conway Public School District. Our teachers and staff are very excited to see all our students and get this school year started!
    Information regarding COVID-19 and our district protocols can be found on our website- www.conwayschools.org/cpsdcovid. This page will be continually updated with the latest information.
    We are using a “stoplight system” to alert parents about current community transmission status and what actions CPSD is taking regarding masking. We are currently in the RED zone, so masks are required for all students and staff during the school day and on buses. Please be sure your student has a mask for school on Monday.
    Check your school’s website and Facebook page for additional Back to School information.
