As Kirby School District K-12 Nurse, my job includes providing health care through assessment, intervention, and follow-up for all students in the school. Along with the teachers and staff, we have only the students best interest in mind which includes staying healthy, staying in class, and having very little absences due to health related issues. Sometimes it is in the best interest of the student, teachers and classmates that if I have a health concern, I will refer the child to be seen by a physician before returning to school. ALL screenings that I do are conducted in a manner that respects the confidentiality of each student. Thanks, Alissa Kelley

Please see statement from Arkansas State Police: STATE POLICE STATEMENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA POSTINGS RELATED TO SCHOOL THREAT AUGUST 25, 2019 The Arkansas State Police has been in close contact in recent days with the Federal Bureau of Investigation attemping to identify the source of an alleged threat of gun violence at an undisclosed Arkansas school reportedly planned for later this week. At this time no corroborating evidence or useful details have been uncovered in regard to the information provided to the FBI. In the event more specific or credible information is received; it will be shared with local law enforcement offices, state and local school officials, as well as Arkansas citizens. The Arkansas State Police asks that if anyone has information about a threat of violence whether the site of the threat may be a school or other public place, please contact your nearest Arkansas State Police Office or local law enforcement agency.

Dear Kirby School District Community, The Kirby School District wants to address something that is currently circulating on social media. On August 20th the FBI in Little Rock issued a general awareness statement to law enforcement agencies about information they received regarding a threat of a possible school shooting in Kentucky on August 28 and in Arkansas on August 29. The suspects made comments while playing an online game overseas. The FBI could NOT verify the source of the threat. The Kirby School District is NOT aware of any specific threat to our district. The threat is not specific to any school however, we will continue to monitor the situation and reassess as needed. The KSD wants to assure our learning community that we take the safety of our scholars and staff seriously. The KSD has plans to address safety. The KSD will continue communicating with the Pike County Sheriff's Office over the next week. The KSD will take all steps necessary to protect our scholars and staff.

On Thursday, March 14 during the regular school board meeting that was scheduled after the parent/community meeting, the Kirby School Board voted unanimously to implement a four-day school week for the 2019-2020 school year. Over the past six months, there has been much discussion, research and surveys between administrators, faculty/staff, students, parents/guardians, and community regarding a four-day school week. We feel there are many positives that will become of this decision for Kirby School District, our students, and our community. We also understand there are a few negatives as well but we feel the pros outweighed the cons. There are many states and school districts successfully implementing a four-day school week all across the nation and it is our goal to become the first current school district to successfully implement a four-day school week in Arkansas. With any change comes apprehension and concerns but we will all work extremely hard together to make this innovative idea succeed. We will send out more information in the near future like school calendar, registration, and other pertinent information valuable to everyone. Thank you! Sincerely, Kirby School District
Just a quick reminder there will be a public meeting after parent/teacher conferences at 7p.m. on March 14 in the cafeteria. We will be following up on our previous surveys about a possible change to a 4 day school week next year. We would like to see as many parents/guardians of our students as possible. There will be a presentation followed by a question and answer session. The purpose of this meeting is to garner feedback.

Kirby School District has teamed up with Apptegy and are proud to announce the release of the NEW and greatly improved kirbytrojans.net website. Our new website offers all the information that parents, students and teachers all will need!! We now have the capability to send out text messages and automated voicemails from information gathered from eSchool registration. In addition to the new site, we are excited to have our very own Kirby Trojan’s app!! This is app is available for download in both Google Play and iTunes Store. This app will have all the information found on the website and much more!! If you turn on the “push notifications” in the settings, you will be able to get live updates as they are pushed out. This will be great for those who like to keep up with ballgame scores and for those days we might be out of school. Both the website and app are linked directly to our NEW Facebook page. To help streamline and make things less confusing, we have a new Kirby School District Facebook page! Be sure to follow us there. Search for Kirby School District. We urge all parents, students and staff to download the app!!! This will be a great way for our administrators to get messages and information to everyone a lot faster and more efficiently! Thank you and Go Trojans! Sincerely, Pike Palmer Kirby Superintendent
