BYE "Meet and Greet"

August 17-19

Important Announcement

We are so excited to announce our outdoor teacher "Meet and Greet!" We hope teacher assignments will arrive by this weekend. We have been working hard to prepare for the 20-21 school year. Our Meet and Greet plan has been approved by the Arkansas Department of Health and it is important that we adhere to the plan so that ALL students can safely meet their teacher.


The plan includes: masks are required, social distance from other families, each student limited to two guests, follow timelines, and adhere to posted signage. Please do not attend if you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, or have had known exposure to someone with Covid-19 in the past 14 days. If you are over 65 years of age or have an underlying health condition you may wish to refrain from entering. We will provide a technology-based meet and greet for those that wish to attend virtually.


Thursday, August 20th will be our alternate date in the event of bad weather. Please stay tuned to social media and email in the event of a weather delay.

Kindergarten Parents

Kindergarten families will be given an assigned time. We will meet in small groups for a message from the principal and teachers, a tour of the classroom, and to deliver school supplies (please label all supplies)! We are so excited to have some new Young Yellowjackets!
