As we start transitioning from fall to winter weather, I wanted to provide information on how the Fordland R-3 School District will notify parents and guardians in the event school is canceled or dismissed early.  The school district will continue using our parent communication phone system and text messaging to notify you of school cancellations.  The District will also be utilizing the local media, District Webpage and District Twitter pages for updates on school closings.  Anyone who would like to sign up for up to date information on current events, including school closings, can register to participate in the REMIND texting program by texting @19eagl to the number 81010.

Please notify your child’s school building if your contact information has changed since the end of school last year.  If you have questions, please contact the district office at (417)767-2298.  Thank you for your continued support of the Fordland R-3 School District.

Thank you and as always, “It’s a Great Day to be an Eagle”!!!!
