All Quapaw High School students will be required to check out a Chromebook to take home to be used as a textbook.  There is a $25 user fee necessary for checking out the Chromebook.  Students will need to have the fee paid by Friday, August 23rd.  A majority of the teachers will be using the Chromebooks for required assignments.  This applies to high school students only.  If you have questions regarding the user fee, please contact the high school office.


Just a reminder to please pay outstanding breakfast/lunch balances from last year before school begins on Thursday. Thank you.

A big thank you to the Quapaw Elementary Staff who came in a day early to learn how to foster even greater relationships with their students during the 2019-20 school year by using the Sanford Harmony program.  This researched based program identifies practical strategies, stories, activities, and lessons for improving relationships, teaching empathy, increasing student confidence and reducing bullying.
