Announcement from Superintendent Kelvin Hudson: 


Flippin Middle School and High School will be moving to virtual instruction at home for Friday, November 13th. We will announce a decision about next week by Friday evening, 11/13/2020. This offsite pivot, move to home, is due to the number of staff members in quarantine.

Flippin Elementary School and the Forrest and Nina Wood Preschool will remain open to onsite instruction. Pre K-4 grade students should still attend school tomorrow, Friday 11/13.

It is vital that all middle school and high school students check their emails and check in with their teachers tomorrow during the day. Teachers will be answering questions and delivering instruction via Canvas. Student attendance will be based on the completion of assignments by the established deadlines.

Parents that are able to, should keep their children in Grades 5-12 at home. Learning zones (classrooms) will be available on campus for students in Grades 5-12 whose parents cannot allow them to stay home for virtual learning and need access to the internet, assistance with lessons, meals, and supervision. Free meals will continue. If you need to pick up a meal for your student who will be working from home, you may fill out this form by 8:00am on Friday, 11/13. Meals should be picked up outside the MS/HS Cafeteria between 10:30am-11:00am. Link: https://forms.gle/f4PCvkhYCeNKLfuaA

Student therapies will still be available; a parent will need to contact the middle school or high school office to make arrangements. Athletic coaches will communicate with their athletes regarding athletic activities.

Staff members who are not in quarantine will be on campus during normal school hours.

Buses will run as normal although times may be slightly different due to less students utilizing transportation.

The District will continue to work in conjunction with ADH and DESE in an effort to provide the safest environment possible for onsite instruction. The health and safety of our students and staff will continue to be a priority for the Flippin School District.
