Thanks to the USDA, Ash Grove R-IV School District will continue providing free breakfast and lunch to all children in the district, ages 1- 18.
We will feed the children every day starting May 24th through June 18th for summer school. Then starting on June 22nd, every Tuesday through July you can pick up breakfast and lunch for a full week at the south entrance of the high school from 3pm to 5pm. After July, we will take a short break from the food service so floors can be refinished (we will send out a reminder as we get closer). The food service will start back up again on August 23rd. We will serve on Mondays from 7am to 9am. This program will continue through June 30, 2022, unless the USDA extends the program again.
The 2021-2022 District School Calendar
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 next ACT test date for this school year is July 17, 2021, and the registration deadline is June 18. The following opportunity to take the ACT will be in September. For more information on the ACT, visit www.act.org or come by the Counseling Office.
Free Breakfast and Lunch Program for All Students
The USDA program that serviced our summer school program has been extended until June 30, 2021. So Ash Grove R-IV schools will be able to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students in our district. This includes students enrolled with us in virtual learning and students who do not attend one of our school buildings. If you would like to receive free breakfast and lunch meals, you may pick up a week's worth of food on Mondays from 7am-9am at the south side entrance to the high school. If you have any questions, contact the high school office at 417-751-2330.
Seniors and Parents of Seniors!
This 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)
2019 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.
With colds, flus, and virus illnesses, please keep in mind these health guidelines:
