Announcement 3-20-20

Good Morning Ozark!

We miss all of our students. It's not the same here without you. The class bells are still ringing. But there's no stomping and laughter coming from the stairwell right outside the SAC. It's just...silent. We pray for you everyday and hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.

We want to let you know, even though we are separated at this time as a school, your chaplains are still here for you. We are clearing our schedules every evening, weekday AND weekend, between the hours of 8pm and 10pm. If you want to talk, counsel, check in, or pray, we are here for you. You can call or text Pastor Jonathan or Chaplain Storie and we will answer immediately. Those 2 hours of everyday, are for YOU. So if you have something heavy on your heart, or you just want to say Hi, give us a call (or text.) We would love to hear from you.

God bless each one of you.

The LORD watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another. Genesis 31:49.

Pastor Jonathan Franco

Chaplain Storie Giddings

Update March 19, 2020

Dear Parents and Students:

You may be aware that Governor Hutchinson of Arkansas announced that all K-12 Arkansas schools will be closed for on-site instruction for an additional 3 weeks until April 17. OAA has been planning in the event that this may happen. In the upcoming days we will be sharing information on how we will transition to online learning with a modified class schedule and personal teacher instruction on April 6.

Please have students complete their school work this week as assigned to turn in by April 6.

Even though events are moving quickly and things seem uncertain, we want you to know that our primary concern is the well being and safety of our school family. We recognize this is challenging for all of us but we appreciate all the positive comments and support we have received from each of you who has shared with us. Please monitor the school website and your email.
