There will be NO archery practice tonight in the MAC. Sign-up forms will be available this Wednesday and must be turned in by this Friday. The forms will also be posted to the website for virtual students. There will be three teams: (1) 4th & 5th Graders (2) 6th - 8th Graders (3) 9th - 12th Graders. Each competition team must have 4 females, 4 males, and 4 additional students. All competetion teams are made up of 12 members. Students do not have to compete to participate. Practices for students younger than 4th grade will be announced at a later time.
This is a reminder that normal “face to face” school will resume tomorrow. If your child was quarantined and you are unsure about the date he/she may return, please contact your child’s teacher. If your child tested positive, he/she will have to have a clearance return letter from the AR Dept. of Health. If you need assistance with this, reach out to Nurse Kaci at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your child has come in contact with a positive person or has tested positive over the holiday break, please contact Nurse Kaci as soon as possible. Please remember to send water bottles, clean backpacks, and jackets with names written inside.
Beginning tomorrow - PC Schools will move to a virtual setting for the remainder of this week. All plans are for on-site school to resume on Monday, Nov. 30th. If this date changes, it will be posted on the school's website and a push notification will be sent out through the school app. Teachers will continue to post virtual lessons for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. If elementary students do not have access to a device to watch the recorded lessons, the teacher will provide an opportunity to get caught up the week of Nov. 30th. Work is also being sent home with all students to complete and return on the 30th. If a student is currently out due to illness or quarantine, these papers will be given to the student on the 30th to complete. Again, most students will come home with this work today. Progress reports are also being sent home today. Any student that develops symptoms should be tested and self quarantine until they receive the results of their test. If a student is tested, it must be reported to Nurse Kaci by email at email@example.com or by calling 870-310-3321.
November 17, 2020 Due to an increased number of positive Covid-19 tests and a large portion of our student body and faculty being quarantined, the Parkers Chapel School District will be moving to all virtual instruction as of Wednesday, November 18th, through Friday, November 20th. We feel that it is best for our community and school district to cancel on campus instruction to decrease contact and prevent any possible spread. The district expects to be back on-site after the Thanksgiving holiday. All facilities will be deep cleaned during the break. Instruction will continue during this time, and all students will be expected to log on to their google classrooms for all assignments. Teachers will record lessons, respond to emails, and post assignments for the remainder of the week. Please respect their office hours of 8:00 am to 3:30 pm. All extracurricular activities this week are being postponed. Any student that develops symptoms or tests positive for Covid-19 during this time must report this information to Nurse Kaci Burton by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 870-310-3321. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but again we feel it is necessary for the safety of our students, staff, and community to suspend face to face instruction at this time. We will continue to provide the Parkers Chapel standard of instruction and appreciate your support and patience. Michael J. White Superintendent
Due to an increased number of positive Covid-19 tests in our seventh grade class and many close contacts that have been forced into quarantine, we feel that it is in the best interest of our community and school district to cancel on campus instruction for 7th graders during the week of November 16-20. 7th graders are encouraged to use the links in their Google Classrooms to join live classes each day. For those unable to connect live, please contact Mrs. Taylor or Mr. Smith and connection assistance will be provided. *This only affects our 7th graders! We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to seeing all of our students back on campus after Thanksgiving Break!
This is a reminder- please send extra masks in backpacks & water bottles. Thank you for your cooperation.
There will be no archery practice tomorrow night. Information about archery will be sent out this week. Competition teams are 4th & 5th grades (Elem), 6th-8th (Jr. High), and 9th-12th (Sr.High).

Parkers Chapel School District Friday, November 13, 2020 Dear Parents, Students, and Faculty: Recently the Parkers Chapel School District notified the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) of positive cases of COVID-19 in the Parkers Chapel School District. The district followed the ADH protocols to identify probable close contacts. Those who have met the criteria have been contacted. The district has taken active measures to deep clean and disinfect the facilities appropriately. Parkers Chapel School District will continue to work with the ADH and follow all guidelines and protocols as directed. We appreciate the cooperation of our parents, students, and staff during these difficult times. For the privacy of our students and staff, the Parkers Chapel School District cannot share personal information regarding this case. The school district remains steadfast in our commitment to the safety of our students, staff, and community. Again, if you have not been contacted you are not considered a probable case of close contact. Continue to monitor your child for symptoms and let Mrs. Burton, the school nurse, know of any suspected issues. Make sure you are familiar with our protocols for testing and possible close contact. Please monitor our district website and social media pages for updates as they become available. Go Trojans, Michael J. White Superintendent
Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases and quarantines, the Parkers Chapel Administration has made the difficult, but necessary decision to forfeit tonight’s playoff game at Clarendon. This sadly concludes our season. Tickets will be refunded by the Arkansas Activities Association; this typically takes 7-10 business days to credit the customers debit/credit card. Thank you to all parents, fans, players, and school personnel for all your support!
Remember to send clean masks & a clean water bottle each day. Students without these items will be required to call parents & have the items brought to school. Thank you for remembering to send these items daily. (A minimum of three (3) masks should be in backpacks.)
Menu Changes for this week: Tuesday: Pre-K Lunch = Ham and Cheese Sliders; Lunch K-12= Ham and Cheese Sliders or Hamburgers. Wednesday: Pre-K Lunch= Chicken Nuggets; K-12 Lunch= Chili Dog or Cheeseburger. Thursday Pre-K Lunch = Chicken and Waffles; K-12 Lunch= Chicken and Waffles or Chicken Sandwich.
Menu change for today: Prek will have popcorn chicken today instead of chicken and waffles. K-12 will have orange chicken today instead of chicken and waffles. The 2nd option of hamburger for K-12 will stay the same today. On Thursday, Prek - 12th will have chicken and waffles with a 2nd option for K-12 of chicken sandwich. We apologize for the inconvenience, a delivery was delayed causing the change.
Please wash masks & water bottles. All students must have a water bottle from home to refill each day. All students must have a mask with at least two or three extra masks to use if something happens to the one they use at the beginning of the day. Parents will be called to bring masks or water bottles if students do not have these two things each day.

From the School Nurse: Attention: The Flu Mist is not available tomorrow for the flu clinic. If you marked MIST on your child’s flu sheet, you must call the nurse and update the form to injection or they will not be vaccinated, as the mist is UNAVAILABLE. Call 862-4641 ext 114. Leave a call back number if your call rolls to the answering machine; or email email@example.com before 2 PM today. We apologize for this inconvenience.
We have been notified that the flu mist will NOT be available for our flu shot clinic tomorrow. If you marked that you wanted your student to be given the mist, please call nurse Kaci at 870-862-4641 ext 114 to let her know how you want your student to be given the flu vaccine. Please leave a message with a return call number if you can't reach her.
Just a reminder that today, 10-24, is NOT an early release day. PCHS will be dismissed at our normal 3:30 time today.
Clarification: some quarantined students will be returning before the 27th (flu clinic day). Those are the forms that can be emailed or dropped off. If the quarantined student is coming back after the 27th, they will not be able to participate in the school’s flu clinic this year.
Students that are currently quarantined may scan the flu forms and email them as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org - as long as they are received tomorrow. You can use the “notes” app on iPhones to take a picture of the forms and then send as an email attachment using the upload icon. Send the originals when students return from quarantine please. You can also drop them off at the elementary office front door if that is easier. There will be a folder on the door where you can place the forms.
This is a reminder that tomorrow is the deadline to turn in paperwork for the school’s flu clinic.
Parents that will be attending face to face conferences must be on the teacher’s schedule and will need to enter the elementary building through the double doors - just past the elementary office (next to the cafeteria). Screening will take place there.
There is currently NO phone service or internet at the school. AT&T is working to repair the issue. Remember we will dismiss today at 12:00 -12:30 for early prek pickup, 12:35-1:05 for elem car line, & buses will run at 1:30. Late prek pickup will be normal time.

Please visit our school website, www.parkerschapelschool.com, to read an important letter from Mr. White regarding changes to the school calendar. The message can be found in the News section.
Elementary Parent - Teacher Conferences will be handled a little differently this fall. The actual date for conferences is Tuesday, October 20th. We will be requiring conferences for any student that is working below level (has a D or F on his/her report card) or if there are conduct issues or study habit issues that need to be addressed. These conferences can be face to face, virtual, or through phone communication. A letter will be coming home tomorrow in your child’s folder that must be signed and returned on Friday. This letter will notify you if a meeting is required. It will also list your conference time. Report cards will be handed out at the meeting if face to face. Report cards will be sent home with students if no meeting is required. All report cards must be signed and returned to document the signature / notification of grades. These will be returned to parents. Of course, if any parent wants to meet with teachers, they can request a meeting. Thank you in advance for helping us make this adjustment to conferences.
