Additional Supports Available from Ozark Guidance

Ozark Guidance has received a grant in collaboration with FEMA, SAMHSA and the Arkansas Department of Health called Promoting Positive Emotions (PPE). This grant is designed to offer support and resources to any Arkansas resident free of charge. Anyone in the community can access a crisis counselor or get help connecting to resources by calling the PPE hotline at 833-993-2383.

Support for blended students

Please remember, when students are at home working, their classroom teachers are busy teaching. Therefore, students that need support when they are working remotely can send questions to hmsremotesupport-group@sdale.org. The HMS remote support team will be checking these emails daily and responding to questions.

We STRONGLY encourage students to complete the daily work ON the day intended, not before.

6th grade car rider line

The traffic pattern on the west side of our building (6th graders) can be a little overwhelming the first time you do it. Please remember two things:
  1. When you get to the merging point of the three lanes, cars should take turns merging from the far right (grassy side) to the far left. Cars should merge lane 1, lane 2, lane 3, repeat.
  2. When you get to the loading zone, pull forward as far as you can to allow as many cars to load as possible.
