NEW: Updated information for Basketball

Volleyball Tryouts

We are not scheduling volleyball tryouts at this point. Coach White has created a Google Classroom that you may join if you are interested in continuing to get information. The code is oshp7rc.


If you have questions, please email Coach White (katie.white@sdale.org).

Tryout information for Rising 7th graders

Please know that we will make every effort to keep these interactions safe for our students & staff. We are following the directive given by state officials as well as the Arkansas Activities Association (AAA).


Also, as always, you must have a completed physical in order to tryout for a team. According to AAA rules, a yearly physical shall reasonably be expected to be within 12-15 months.

Rationale - The coaches and school administration must be assured that the athletes are physically fit prior to beginning practice as well as competition. The health and safety of students and student athletes fall directly under school care.

Marshallese families can now receive SNAP

Marshallese children can get money from the SNAP if already in the Free Reduced Meal program.

Join ACOM and Laura Kellams discussing the latest change on the SNAP program. If your child is enrolled in the Free/Reduced meal program, you should receive the SNAP card in the upcoming weeks. No need to do anything, card will automatically be sent to your known address.

In a recent survey, Food insecurity was identified as the third covid-19 need in the Marshallese community. The latest change will reduce financial burden on families, especially those who make minimum wage and there are many in the Marshallese community.
