Members of the leadership teams from MES and MHS met with administrators to evaluate safety measures and new procedures in the evolving circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. This will allow teachers to be actively involved in decision-making and developing new ideas for the district. Mr. Sublett outlined social distancing guidelines and new sanitation procedures, including the use of foggers to sanitize all buildings and buses. Hand sanitizer stations, water bottle stations, and sanitation of playground equipment will also be incorporated. The district’s re-entry plan will be updated to reflect current state mandates. Faculty, staff, and administrators will be monitoring and adjusting plans and procedures in order to reflect best practices and better serve students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to check the district website at bearkatz.k12.ar.us and facebook for the latest updates.

Good Afternoon Bearkatz Nation! Please help us determine our technology needs for the upcoming year. We need all parents in the district to complete the MSD Technology Needs Survey by July 10, 2020. This survey is NOT a commitment on your part in any way. It will be used to determine what additional technology we need to consider. The survey has been mailed to you and it is available online at bearkatz.k12.ar.us. We understand you may have completed an earlier survey with similar questions, however; there are some additional questions on this survey. Thank you so much for assisting us as we plan to meet the needs of our students! Your input is greatly appreciated during this trying time!
Class Rings are In!!! For students who ordered class rings, Blake Williams, from Jostens will be in front of the high school gym on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 from 11:00 am to noon. You may contact Blake at email@example.com for questions.
