HS Intruder Training
During recent teacher in-service training, Ava R-I School District faculty and staff received school intruder response training from Strategos International on how to handle various intruder situations. Teachers role played several situations and devised plans to protect students in the event of such a crisis.
Strategos trainers stated crisis situations are more likely to be handled, if teachers and staff plan ahead in the event of such crisis. Pictured are high school faculty.
Martin Luther King Day
In observance of Martin Luther King Day, the Ava R-I School District will not be in session on Monday, Jan. 16. There is no Bears Den when school is not in session on full day vacation days.
This could change, however, if we get winter precipitation this week. Jan. 16 is the first snow make-up day, and would be used if school should be dismissed for weather on Thursday or Friday this week.
Ava Middle School Bears Den students learned how to square-dance from Mrs. Terinda Hampton and Mrs. Thelma Clayton during their “Freaky Friday” class, Happy Feet.
