Masks Encouraged


Basketball games will begin on Tuesday, January 25. We are ENCOURAGING masks to be worn by individuals in the gymnasiums. Those that are sick and have symptoms we encourage you to not attend and watch the games on livestream. We need to protect our student athletes so we can finish the next few weeks.

Those returning to school that have been sick and on the Covid protocols must wear a mask for 5 days based on the CDC guidelines.

We appreciate everyone’s flexibility and understanding as we continue to keep our students as the number one focus.

Board Approves Bond Election

Last night at the January 17 Board of Education Meeting the Quapaw Board of Education approved an April 5th bond election for school facility improvements. The bond election will include the following projects:

Roof Replacement at the Elementary School.

Safe Room at the Elementary School consisting of 2 classrooms, a music room and a small bank of restrooms. The portable classrooms will be removed. The tornado shelter will hold approximately 500 occupants.

Restroom renovation in the Student Center and adding a small set of restrooms at the Middle School.

Bleacher Addition on the north side of the Main Gymnasium. This will allow additional seating for music programs, assemblies and activities.

More information will be shared on the proposed project in the coming days.



School Board Appreciation Month


January is School Board Appreciation Month and we'd like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our five elected School Board members for their voluntary service to the District and to the greater Quapaw community: Buddy Harris, John Jennings, Heath Radford, Albert Ray and Paula Suman.


Board members put in countless hours overseeing and providing community voice to District operations, as well as advocating for the resources and opportunities students need to be successful. For all you do, School Board members, we thank you!
