We are so excited about the opportunities the new Saline County Career Tech Center will offer our students opening next year!! Bauxite High School students will have the opportunity to attend in 2021! https://youtu.be/Wlu-C2isrBM
Bauxite Schools will implement Virtual Fridays beginning on Nov. 6. You are probably aware that teachers nation-wide are struggling right now to teach virtual students and onsite students. Offering teachers additional time to plan, grade, and prepare digital content is something we want to try to help ease their stress and workload. We hear them saying what they are doing is not sustainable, and we want to help. However, we are also aware many of our parents don’t have childcare when students are at home, so we will allow students to be onsite on virtual days if other childcare arrangements can’t be made. On Fridays, onsite students will work on digital lessons under a paraprofessional’s supervision. A few more details: Buses will not run on Fridays. Parents will need to contact Kristy Ammons at 501-557-5254 if meals are needed. For our K-4 students who don’t have Chromebooks at home, we will provide them with a Chromebook to take home on Thursdays and bring back to school on Mondays. Attendance and grades will be taken on Fridays. We hope you will support us in supporting our teachers. Contact your child’s school with questions.
Catch the game tonight on our new system! https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/schools/bauxite-high-school-bauxite-ar/football
Bauxite is providing free meals to all of our students through Dec. 31. The student just needs to come through the breakfast or lunch line and provide their name. BX virtual students who wish to take advantage of these free meals can call Kristy Ammons at 501-557-2238. This is only for students currently enrolled at Bauxite.
Bauxite Schools will be requiring masks for all students in grades K-12. Masks have been mandated by the State of Arkansas for ages 10 and up to help prevent community spread of COVID-19, and the district originally planned to only require masks for ages 10 and up, but due to updated guidance for schools and feedback from our school community, we will now be requiring masks for all grades K-12. Masks are required at all times on buses. For more detailed information, please visit https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TUJ0X1k4j6Hff9RXXlDXs73Dbky7fLD2RE3rJzB7Nos/edit?usp=sharing
BHS Students and Parents, we haven't forgotten you! BHS is working on getting all back to school forms changed to a digital form (we know parents will appreciate not having to write their name and address over and over on multiple forms!), and schedules will soon be available on HAC. Since most of our students still have their Chromebooks, BHS is attempting to move Miner Days online to prevent you from coming on campus unnecessarily! Stay tuned to our social media and texts; we will let you know more soon! Looking forward to seeing you again, students!
Arkansas has allotted Bauxite enough WiFi hotspots for 5% of our students to receive one. The link below is for the hotspot application. Filling out the application does not guarantee you will receive a hotspot, but only those who fill it out will have a chance to receive one. The hotspots will be assigned based on greatest need. Please do not fill out the application if you already have internet service at home. https://forms.gle/s1Eo7N5cUCFResG36
The link we shared yesterday for the livestream of graduation is experiencing technical difficulties. Use this link to watch the livestream instead. https://www.bauxiteminers.org/live-events
Today is the deadline for choosing blended (onsite) vs. virtual (online) instruction. There is no need to complete the form again if you have already done so. If a student doesn't register a selection, they will be scheduled into blended (onsite) classes. Make your selection at this link https://forms.gle/MZYyiBQfy8ytkrCe7

We have been approved for a traditional graduation this Saturday at 9 a.m. Each graduate has a limited number of guests they can bring, so please share this link with those who can't attend so they can be a part of this day as well!
OOPS! This is such a challenging time, we left out the word is in our last text. Sorry!
Today Governor Hutchinson changed the start date for Arkansas schools to no sooner than August 24 and no later than Aug. 26. As soon as we have a new 2020-2021 calendar, we will share it with you. This a challenging time, Miner family, but we are stronger together! #minerstrong
