The SNSD is seeking input from students, parents, staff, and community members regarding the mask mandate and social distancing guidelines based on Governor Asa Hutchinson’s recent announcement. This survey will provide valuable information that will help in the decision making process.
Important information to be aware of as you make your decision:
If the district continues following our current guidelines until the end of the school year, then students and staff will no longer be quarantined if they were identified as a close contact and were wearing a mask.
If the district does not follow the mask mandate and social distancing guidelines until the end of the school year, then students and staff will continue to be quarantined if they are deemed as close contact for 10 days per state mandate.

As many of you are aware, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced the lifting of the mask mandate for the state of Arkansas. It was also discussed that school district would be making local decisions with stakeholder input moving forward.
The Smackover-Norphlet School District has been having discussions with staff and the school board anticipating this possible decision.
SNSD will continue with our current policies and plans and will communicate any new guidance after discussion and decision making at a special called board meeting on April 8.
We thank you for your efforts to make this school year a success despite the adjustments! Have a great Good Friday and Easter weekend.

The luck of the Irish was with Norphlet Middle School 5th grade students!
They found the pot of gold but were left with the challenge of building a bridge with their gold coins!
Students were to build a bridge at least an inch tall and an inch wide. Below are some pictures of their completed STEM challenge.
Norphlet Middle School students’ design and building skills were challenged by an assignment from art teacher Kristi Rainwater.
In teams, the students were asked to create, design, fabricate, and then introduce a board game to their classmates.
The faculty/staff voted on their favorite based on certain criteria such as design, rules, manufacture, and concept.
The winning team’s class enjoyed a popcorn party.
After researching the life of brain surgeon Ben Carson and learning about his “gifted hands”, students in Kim Stanton’s class at Norphlet Middle School wrote about their own talented hands.
