We need help keeping the quarantine down. Here is how you can help: 1. If you are ill or have been tested and you have any questions in your mind about attendance, please call our Point of Contact (POC), Mr. Anthony Hood. 479-297-1948 2. Please don’t attend school if you have a fever. 3. If anyone in your house has taken a COVID test, please don’t attend until you have knowledge that the test is negative. 3. Get a COVID test if you feel symptoms. If you feel good, there is no need to take a test. 4. Wear your mask, social distance 6 ft at every opportunity and wash your hands regularly. 5. Tiny particles that we expel from our mouths are called aerosols. They linger in the air after we talk, sneeze, cough, sing, etc. This is why it is important to wear masks and social distance at outside gatherings such as attending worship services. Many of our quarantines come from gatherings outside of school. 6. Thanksgiving holidays have great potential to create spread. Please be mindful of this when gathering with friends and family. 7. Thank you and God Bless.

From MPV Administration: The Revised 2020-21 School Calendar will be on the website. An updated informational letter concerning the starting of school will also be on the website.
MPV Administration: We understand everyone is a bit anxious about getting information concerning the start of school. The difficulty of releasing plans to this point has been the ever changing directives and guidelines from the department of education and Arkansas Department of Health. Even yesterday, we were informed that we would have to change the date for starting school. When we do send information, we want to be as accurate as humanly possible. Toward that end, the District plans to release a letter to parents and community during the week of July 20th. That date will be one month before school starts on August 24th. We are hopeful the Arkansas Department of Health and Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for Arkansas will be fairly certain of their expectations for us by then. It is important to understand that information could change after that date depending on the status of COVID-19. We appreciate your patience and can’t wait to see our students!
The Governor announced today that schools would not be allowed to start until August 24th. We will anticipate starting that day. Some adjustments will have to be made to our school calendar but we will work through that as promptly as possible. The MPV School District’s number one priority is our students and we are looking forward to seeing each student on the 24th. Keep looking for updates from the District as we prepare for a successful year.

MPV Administration: Parents and Guardians will be receiving a letter from Dr. Myers concerning returning to school. It is somewhat general in nature with many more specifics coming later in July as we get closer to school. For now the District is attempting to obtain a close estimate as to how many parents will send students back to school (with safety guidelines in place being followed) and how many parents will most likely prefer remote (at home learning) via technology. We will also offer a blended program using some instruction face to face and some instruction done remotely. In summary, the letter basically will ask you to contact your principal if remote learning is what you fully expect to do. Please don’t worry about this being a final answer. We are simply attempting to determine how many students we may be serving remotely. Thanks and we appreciate you!
All report cards that have not been picked up at the school site are now located at the Administration Building located at 424 Alma Avenue. You may pick them up between the hours of 8:30-2:30 Monday-Friday.
