A federal relief fund has been made available to all residents of Benton County that are in need of rental assistance.

Rental assistance is available in the forms of past due rent, rent payments, past due utility payments, and utility payments connected to a rental unit. To see if your household qualifies or to learn more, fill out the contact form on www.harknwa.com/getconnected or call 2-1-1. Spanish and Marshallese speaking staff are available.

Pea Ridge High School will be conducting our upcoming ACT Aspire Testing session for students during the month of April.  This is a state required assessment and it is essential that all of our students who are face to face and virtual participate in this series of tests.  The testing Dates will be Tuesday April 6th, Tuesday April 13th, and Tuesday April 20th.   This test has to be administered in person so all students will need to report to Pea Ridge Schools associated with their grade levels.  Students will need to arrive before 7:55 am in order to check the rosters and ensure they have enough time to get to their designated testing area.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about our upcoming testing sessions.
