Due to the Governors order to push back the start date of school (Aug. 24th) Rattler Virtual Academy decision date is being extended until August 14.
We have just received word from the Deputy Commissioner, Ivy Pfeffer, that all schools will have a uniform start date. We along with all other schools in Arkansas will be starting August 24th. This will allow DESE and the Department of Health to have a more wholistic approach. Please understand this continues to be a very fluid situation and may change. In the next couple of weeks we will be working to build a new school calendar. This new calendar will be released as soon as possible. Thank you for understanding.
We are saddened to say that with the rise in COVID-19 cases as well as considering recommendations from the Arkansas Department of Health, the Department of Education, and discussions with students we are unfortunately going to have to cancel prom this year. This is not something that we have taken lightly and definitely not something that we want to do but in order to make sure that students limit possible exposure and are able to attend school, college, or work we feel it is necessary at this time. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

This has been a crazy year for our seniors! Though I always think yearbooks are important, I think this year they may mean a little bit more to our seniors who missed out on other memories. Consider donating a yearbook to a senior this year. I will put seniors who did not order one in a basket and draw names for the donated books. If you want it to go to a particular student, you can put their name in instead of “senior donation.” If there are more books donated than seniors who do not have them, I will pass out to juniors and so on. If you have any questions, you can contact me at Andrea.email@example.com. Thank you!
Report Cards go out today.
