According to Arkansas State Law, no private school student of this state shall be admitted to school who is not age-appropriately immunized or has submitted current appropriate exemption paperwork. Additional immunization requirements for school admittance besides the normal mandated pre-school aged immunizations are listed below. Your physician will be familiar with these requirements.
Entering PK students must have 2 Hepatitis A vaccines.
Students who are turning or have turned 11 years of age as of September 1st of each year are required to get a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine on or after the 11th birthday. Students need to be 11 years old to get this vaccine.
All students entering the 7th grade are required to receive a meningococcal vaccine. Most students get this vaccine when they get their Tdap at age 11.
Upper School students who have turned or will turn 16 years of age as of September 1st of each year are required to get a 2nd meningococcal vaccine. You must be 16 to get this vaccine.
Please take care of these vaccinations before school starts in August and please ask the doctor’s office to update the Web-IZ. If the doctor’s office does not enter data into the Web-IZ, please bring a copy to any school division office in an envelope addressed to Nurse Hopkins.

All students are provided supplies in the Lower School. There is no need to purchase additional supplies. We will make sure students have their own supplies rather than sharing with classmates as they have in the past. Students in fourth and fifth grades are allowed to decorate their lockers, so those materials may be purchased if desired.
Students may bring a water bottle and a snack with them each day. Additional items, such as a change of clothes, will be needed for students in grades PreK-3 through Kindergarten.
Teachers will provide a list if anything additional is needed, during orientation.
We are happy to announce that we are once again selling prepackaged school supplies for next year through School Tool Box. Families can access their website by clicking the link below. Please click here for the promotional flyer.
We are pleased to continue our partnership with local bookseller Wordsworth Books to source our textbooks for the 2022-23 school year. Wordsworth has customized a web interface for our school to make it as easy as possible for you to order books. Books for Middle School are listed by grade level and for Upper School by subject and course. If you do not see a course or book listed, it is because the course does not require a book or the teacher is ordering that book and charging FACTS.
Linked below is this year's textbook information, including ISBN numbers for selected texts. Any pricing listed here reflects current information available and is subject to change based on publishers. We strongly encourage you to purchase books from Wordsworth as this is the only way to ensure that you receive the correct editions.
