Virtual students: We want to make sure that you are aware. You DO need to fill out a computer/network usage agreement for this year, even if you are virtual. We have forms that we can email you. You can print and sign the form to turn in through email or you can send us an email (email@example.com) stating that you agree to the computer usage agreement. These forms were not on the online registration process that you completed earlier. ANY STUDENT WITHOUT ONE BY 3:00 p.m. TODAY WILL BE DISABLED UNTIL WE HAVE AN AGREEMENT ON FILE. The usage form is attached to this post as well. Also remember that we are testing the next two days virtually on iReady. You must have your email account available to get the login for the test. Call the PGMS office if you have questions 479-846-4220. Having said that, realize that we only have one secretary who answers phone calls for us. If you get a chance, please leave a voicemail, as she may be on another line.
The 5th grade diagnostic test tomorrow is only for on-site students. We will send out virtual diagnostic testing instructions later.

PGMS Virtual students: If you have questions, Lisa Spence and/or myself are your first point of contact to help. Especially questions like “I can’t login, what is my username?” (email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org). As far as assigned content, it is already there and truly is self paced. If we see that your classes have been inactive or you’re not covering enough content, we will notify you ASAP. The teachers on your HAC accounts will be available in a Google Meet once weekly to also answer content questions like,”How do you get common denominators? Or what is a main idea of the story?” We are still very new in this process and are working toward a seamless process. -Mr. Taylor
PGMS virtual students: Please disregard the automated absence message. We are resolving that to only include on site students.
