Parents, As a parent I understand how children can get out the door dressed inappropriately (wearing a pair of shorts, short sleeves, or a hoodie instead of a coat) in the middle of January. For this reason, we ask that you please make every effort to make sure they are dressed appropriately for these cold winter days. As stated in the handbook, "If children are dressed inappropriately for weather conditions, they may be required to stay in during recess or other outdoor activities". Thanks for all you do! Mr. Hollis

Attention MS/HS Parent--The Following Letter is coming home with your child today. At Bakersfield R-IV School, we are committed to providing a safe learning environment for our students. Recently we have found that the safety of our students is being compromised by the rise in popularity of vaping. Vaping has been sold to the public as a safe alternative to smoking, and only recently have we seen a number of people hospitalized and even deaths attributed to it. The vape industry has gone even further by designing items specifically for kids that make them almost impossible to detect. While we are aware that we have students who vape, we are doing everything we can to keep them from doing it here. We have a number of students in the MS/HS that have breathing issues such as asthma, who are being affected by second hand vape in the classrooms, restrooms, and locker rooms. As a result, the Bakersfield R-IV School Board, in an effort to protect all our students, voted to change the Discipline Code for any student found vaping, or in possession of a vape, to the following: 1st Offense – 5 Days Out of School Suspension (OSS) 2nd Offense – 10 Days OSS and student will be removed from regular classes and assigned to the alternative learning room for the remainder of the school year. 3rd Offense – Expulsion from school for up to 180 days. This Discipline Code change became effective September 19, 2019, at the regular monthly board meeting. We will continue to educate our students on the dangers of vaping, but we need your help in order to keep all our students safe. If you have any questions, you may contact me at (417)-284-7333. Thank you, Doyne Byrd Principal Bakersfield MS/HS

With school just around the corner, I wanted to remind everyone that several students will have immunizations due. If you have a kindergartner, 8th grader or senior, chances are they need some immunizations to attend school. Our board policy and the state of Missouri require them to have certain vaccinations in order to attend school. This is extra important with all of the increased outbreaks of whooping cough and measles being reported. Your child will not be able to attend school without a current immunization record on file, so please make sure to send that in if you have not submitted one since their last vaccine. I’m excited to see everyone and look forward to another healthy happy school year! 😊
