Calico Rock Dance Camp is Cancelled

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our Dance camp has to be postponed.  The camp will be rescheduled at a later date.  We will advertise on our Website, Facebook page and our mass texting.  We are very sorry for the inconvenience.  

We want to make sure we keep our students and faculty healthy and safe.  

High School Students! It's time to make your schedule!!!!

Next week  high school students need to come and make their schedules with Mrs. Steph.  We look forward to seeing you!  See schedule below.

Please come between 8:30 - 2:30 to Mrs. Steph's office.
Monday: Seniors
Tuesday: Juniors
Wednesday: Sophomores
Thursday: Freshmen
Also, new students should come and register this week.  Come at your convenience.  We are looking forward to all the new Pirates this year.

Pee Wee Camp cancelled.

The active COVID-19 cases in Arkansas have surged this week with 1475 new cases in a 24-hour period, 15 deaths and 98 people on ventilators, as reported by KARK 4 in Little Rock.  Izard county has 52 active cases as well.

That being said, it is with regret and disappointment that we believe it is in the best interest of everyone involved to cancel the Pee Wee basketball camp scheduled for July 20-22, 2021.  However, we look forward to rescheduling the event next year. 

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Stay safe, sanitize, social distance and mask up when necessary.
