Dear Buckaroo Community,
I hope during these unique times you have been able to spend quality
time with your loved ones and develop a greater appreciation of family,
friends, and the community we live in just as I have. Although these
times have brought uncertainty and concerns, they have also brought an
opportunity to enjoy your family and be thankful for what we have. For
our school district, it has brought our teams together to work on the
next course of action and make adjustments that will be best for our
students and staff in the coming days.
As the information that schools would be closed through April 17 came
out today, our administrative teams were in meetings identifying
virtual delivery options for our students moving forward. I want to
assure you that during these times, the Smackover-Norphlet School
District will be working hard to help our parents and students and will
keep you updated as we receive information.
Beginning Monday, March 30, our campuses and central office will
begin office hours from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm to answer phones, conduct
necessary business, and provide hard copies of student work if needed.
Campuses have already begun reaching out to students and parents
regarding electronic devices and more information will be coming soon
about our virtual instructional plans moving forward.
We will have information posted to the blog and website by April 2nd,
that will give a detailed plan of how to access the programs being
utilized, who to contact if there are questions, and hard copy options.
As we tackle this situation as a community, state, and team, I’m very
encouraged by the educators and community I’m a part of. Thank you for
all you do.
Please take the precautions that the state and federal authorities
are suggesting and know that our Smackover-Norphlet Buckaroo team will
be here for you and your students!
God Bless and Go Bucks!
