As the 2019-20 school year comes to a close, we would like your feedback on your experience with our alternative methods of instruction.
This spring, Ozark School District provided alternative methods of instruction through online learning for the remainder of the school year. Our alternative methods of instruction were never intended to replace the rigor of in-class instruction and did not have a negative impact on a student's grade for fourth quarter.
As we move forward, we are exploring how we can implement alternative methods of instruction into our normal school year operations for events such as weather days.
Additionally, we are exploring a pilot for families who would like to participate in a blended in-person and online learning program throughout the school year.
We realize parents haven’t had as much time to sign up for Summer School as in years’ past. And, we realize there is a lot to take into consideration. That’s why we are extending our Summer School online registration another week.
Student and staff safety is our number one priority. For our in-person Summer School (incoming kindergarten through incoming 8th grade), we are limiting class sizes, sanitizing frequently and avoiding large groups in the cafeterias, gyms and playgrounds. We will also have nurses in every building.
Summer School will be offered in person for incoming kindergarten - 8th grade with virtual summer school for incoming 9th - 12th grade (credit recovery for 9th - 12th grade will be in person). Find more information about Summer School at www.ozarktigers.org/summerschool and register through the Parent Portal (instructions are online).
Families will remain in their cars. Teachers will deliver the bags to the car in order to say goodbye to students while observing proper social distancing.

Since we are unable to offer Fit for Life, we have created a weight room and speed/agility schedule for 8th - 12th grade athletes for summer athletic training. Coaches will be contacting their athletes to schedule the time.
Feeding Program ends May 22
Ozark School District will offer a free summer feeding program for children ages 2-18 during Summer School, June 8-26. Details are still being finalized, so stay tuned!
