RURAL SPECIAL, First and foremost we hope you are doing well and enjoying spring time in Arkansas. I know many of you have questions about AMI so hopefully this helps along with the live feed videos we’ve been doing. For Rural Special elementary there is a direct link on the school's website for your child to access their Google account where the AMI packets have been shared. If your child does not know their email address or password K-2 students need to talk with your child's classroom teacher to gain this information while 3rd-6th grade students need to contact Mrs. Avey or Mrs. Berry so that their passwords may be reset. All AMI packets have also been emailed and shared with every student in their Google accounts (k-6). Students requesting paper copies of the AMI packets will have two options for pickup days. Pickup will be Thursday from 11am-1pm with plastic tubs sitting outside the high school building. Packets will have each child's name clearly identified on them. The second option for obtaining AMI packets is Monday during breakfast and lunch pickup. At this time all submissions will be electronic. Students may turn in their work via their Google drive or students and parents may take a picture of the assignment with their smart phone or tablet and email the work to their teachers. High school students have the same options for paper packets; however those doing AMI electronically, packs have either been shared via Google or the teacher will be using Google classroom. More information can be found at www.RuralSpecial.com Thank you for your patience as we all work through this together. Remember, most importantly take this time to enjoy some extra days with your children. If you find yourself or your child getting frustrated, set it to the side and come back to it later. Smile, laugh and make memories. Respectfully -- Shelia Mitchell, Elementary Principal Rural Special Elementary Fox, AR 72051

Thank you to the Timbo Tigers last night for showing up at the basketball game with their Briley t-shirts. We live in an amazing area with many caring schools and people. Your love and prayers have definitely been felt.
