The Texarkana Arkansas School District Board of Directors recently voted to modify the 2023-2024 school calendar. The adjustment involves switching April 1, initially designated as a student holiday, to April 8. The decision to amend the calendar stems from the much-anticipated occurrence of the Great American Solar Eclipse on April 8. This cosmic event is anticipated to draw significant numbers of visitors to the Texarkana area. In light of safety concerns associated with the expected influx of traffic and visitors, TASD, along with over 100 school districts across the state of Arkansas, has opted to close schools on April 8. In summary, students will attend school on April 1 and will be out of school on April 8.

Please help us by talking to your child about the importance of having his or her card at all times. If a student does not present and scan the Zpass, he or she will NOT be allowed to ride a bus. A replacement must be purchased if the ZPASS is lost or destroyed. Replacement cost is $5.00. Once your child receives his or her ZPASS, visit https://www.zpassplus.com/ to activate your account.

No personal information will be collected in this survey. Survey results will be used to identify trends needing improvement and to assist in developing solutions. Please share this survey with military families in your school districts or on your installations and encourage them to take survey. It should only take about ten minutes. The survey will remain open through the end of November 2023. Go to this link to take the survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScUstZzALU66pcFjA28QNENgJ2rXupVHb88kBgwLe7OYnb0JA/viewform
