One of our amazing bus drivers, Doug Coberly, went above & beyond his job description to help prepare our nature trail for our SOPE students next week! He worked hard to spread 70 cubic yards of mulch donated and delivered by American Ozark Hardwoods. We are so incredibly grateful to Doug and American Ozark Hardwoods for supporting our mission!

We Want to Hear from You! As McDonald County Schools plan for the 2020-2021 school year, we would like your feedback on learning options that would work best for your family. Options might include seated instruction (face-to-face at school site) or virtual instruction (6 hours a day, at home, with teacher support available). Typical grading would occur with both seated and virtual instruction. Your responses will allow us to make decisions for the upcoming school year that best meets the learning needs of your child while also prioritizing their health. For families with multiple children who will be attending McDonald County Schools in August, please complete a separate survey, using this same link for EACH child in your household. https://forms.gle/jT2CWiJvMwcNzvqVA
