Parent/Teacher Conference nights will be on October 26 and 27 from 3:30-7:30pm.

Parent and Student Portal

Grades, schedules, and attendance information are available on the student information system (SIS). Parents and students may log into the SIS portal throughout the year to view those. If you would like a paper copy of quarter or semester grades, you may contact the high school office to get one printed. If you are new to the district and need to set up the inital login for the parent portal, contact the high school office at 417-751-2330.

2022 MAP and EOC Testing Reports

Parent/Guardians,

The Individual Student Reports from students tested in grades 3rd through 12th grade have been provided by DESE to school’s throughout the state. A copy of the Individual Student Report (ISR) will be printed and provided to families with their 1st quarter grade card, during the week of October 17th - 21st, 2022.

The 2022-2023 District School Calendar


School Calendar 2022-2023.pdf

Attendance

When your student is absent from school, please notify the high school office. The phone number to call is 417-751-2330, and the office opens every morning by 7:45am. If your student has had a doctor or dental appointment during school hours, please send a note from that office documenting their visit.

The ACT

The next ACT test date for this school year is October 22, 2022, and the registration deadline was September 16. The following opportunity to take the ACT will be December 10, and the deadline for that test date is November 4. For more information on the ACT, visit www.act.org or come by the Counseling Office.

Breakfast and Lunch Program

The USDA program that we have had for the last couple years has ended. We will be starting back to full-priced breakfasts and lunches for students in our district, and so students will need to make sure that they have money in their school meal account in order to receive a breakfast or lunch from the cafeteria. Prices of the meals will be posted soon. If you have any questions, contact the high school office at 417-751-2330.

To see if your family qualifies for free or reduced meals at school, you will need to complete the federal application that will be available at Open House on August 18 or that will be sent home with your student on the first day of school. Please see the information below for more information about the free and reduced meal application and the other impacts that the application has for the student and the school.

Seniors and Parents of Seniors!

Starting October 1 is the time to fill out the FAFSA! If you plan on going to college next year, then you need to fill out something called the FAFSA, the "Free Application for Federal Student Aid." This is not a loan - the grant money you receive from this does not have to be repaid, and it is free to apply. The sooner you fill this out the better. Why? Because if you fill it out sooner, you may be able to get more grants (money) that will help you pay for college.. Even if there's the slightest chance you may go to college next year, you need to fill this out.

To fill out the FAFSA, here's what parent(s)/legal guardian(s) AND the senior will need to have with them:

Social Security Number

Alien Registration Number (if you are not a U.S. citizen)

2020 federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned. (Note: You may be able to transfer your federal tax return information into your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.)

Bank statements and records of investments (if applicable)

Records of untaxed income (if applicable)

For more information or for help in completing the FAFSA, contact the Counseling Office at 417-751-9616 or 417-751-9605.
