District Wide 

With widespread energy concerns this week, we felt it appropriate timing to share these upcoming energy-efficient updates. The district has been approved for Warm/Safe/Dry Partnership Funding and will be utilizing $4,618,653 to pay for 62% of our approved projects. Projects include:

    • New roof systems at Pea Ridge Junior High and Pea Ridge Intermediate
    • New HVAC systems with dedicated fresh air at Pea Ridge Junior High and Pea Ridge Intermediate
    • Improved indoor air quality with bipolar ionization at Pea Ridge Junior High and Pea Ridge Intermediate
    • HVAC automation upgrades throughout the district
    • Internal and external LED lighting upgrades throughout the district
    • Water conservation improvements throughout the district
    • Building envelope improvements throughout the district
    • Power factor correction at Pea Ridge Junior High

All of these will be budget-neutral projects. We want to ensure communication regarding these updates. You can learn more here:

Cheerleading tryouts for upcoming 7th grade, JH and HS teams will be held April 12-16. Details on zoom parent meetings will be posted soon! Please plan on getting your physical as soon as possible if you are interested in trying out.

 

It is time to start planning and preparing for the 2021-2022 school year. Each year we work with our students on Career and Academic Planning (CAP) to help them pick from a wide array of courses at PRHS. This year we have prepared a website to help overcome some of the social distancing obstacles: https://sites.google.com/pearidgek12.com/prsdacademics This site has lots of videos and text that should allow you and your student to learn more about the course offerings and programs at PRHS. All of the processes and procedures will be taken care of by your student during their normal school day at PRHS. We will be offering an Open House CAP Night on April 1. More details will follow as we get closer.
