Virtual Student Picture Day: Dates, Times, Locations

In order to reduce exposure to our virtual students, we have scheduled virtual student picture day in one of two ways:


Attend your home school's make-up picture day. Please look for the specific time for virtual students if listed next to your school. If your make-up day has passed, please use the evening option.


  • Century: Oct. 14 at 10 a.m.
  • Espy: Oct. 14 from 8-10 a.m.
  • High Pointe: Oct. 20 8:40-11 a.m.
  • JTSD: Oct. 22 8:45 to 10:45 a.m.
  • Mathews: Oct. 14 at 10 a.m.
  • Inman Intermediate: Oct. 15 from 7:45-9 a.m.
  • Summit: Oct. 22 8:30-10 a.m.
  • Nixa Junior High virtual students should use the Oct. 20 day at Faught from 3-7 p.m.

If you are NOT attending your school's photo day or that day has already passed and you would like your child's photo taken for the yearbook and other school needs, please sign up for a time slot on Oct. 20. We have limited space at each time slot, so you need to register for one. You will need to sign up each child separately so we know exactly who is coming and limit it to 15 per time slot.

Second Semester Virtual Learning

On Wednesday, October 21, 2020 a survey will be sent out to all virtual students regarding interest in second semester virtual learning. Please anticipate this form and begin considering your preference for virtual learning or in-person learning for second semester.

Grades/Progress reports

K-6th: First quarter grade cards will be emailed to parents by virtual teachers toward the end of October. Virtual teachers will be contacting you to set up virtual conferences soon!


7th-12th: Updated grades can be found on PowerSchool. If you need assistance with PowerSchool, contact your child's counselor.

Virtual Learning Tips

K-5th: Refer to your Nixa teacher's daily announcement to view the plans for each day. The announcement displays at the top of the teacher's Canvas course or can be located by clicking on the "Announcements" tab in the left side course navigation menu.


K-12th: Missing assignments can be seen by clicking “Grades” in the left side course navigation menu. Please check these frequently and try to catch up on missing assignments as soon as possible.

LAUNCH Workbooks for Second Quarter and Supply Update

Elementary second quarter workbooks will begin to be mailed out the week of October 12.


LAUNCH has experienced a great deal of difficulty getting supplies in for the fall semester courses due to national shortages. Unfortunately, LAUNCH has not been given assurances from their suppliers that kits will be available, so LAUNCH is revamping the elementary related arts classes to either require no supplies or basic household items.
