Dear Home School Parents and Students:

The Prairie Grove School District welcomes any home school students who would like to participate in one or more school classes or activities. The legislature passed a law, ACA 6-15-509, that allows home school students to participate in interscholastic activities including athletic teams, fine arts programs and special interest clubs or groups. In Prairie Grove, we are also going to open this up to students who would like to enroll in one or more academic classes that may be difficult to offer at home as long as numbers allow.

Included in this letter is the school district policy that has been adopted in accordance with the law and a list of courses and extracurricular activities. There is also a Letter of Intent to participate in an extracurricular activity. If you have one or more students who will be in grades 7 through 12 next year that want to participate, please fill out this form and return it to Prairie Grove High School, Prairie Grove Middle School or to the administrative offices for the district.

We will have an informational meeting on Monday, May 12 at 5:30 pm in the high school library for anyone who has an interest and would like a chance to come and ask questions. If you are unable to make this meeting or would like to get the information a little sooner, please feel free to call me at the number listed above.

This first year we are struggling and in some cases not meeting all the deadlines listed in our policy. So, bear with us as we try to make these opportunities available to those who wish to participate. We truly want to partner with parents to provide the opportunities you would like for your students.

All this information will be up on our website, pgtigers.org, in the next few days.

Again, please call if you have any questions.
