  • 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.
