The Benton School Board approved the 2024-2025 school calendar. The Benton School District will bank minutes in the upcoming school year. We have recently implemented an alternative calendar where we are currently banking minutes to make up for recent snow days. Although we have yet to determine the exact school start and end times, they will likely be similar to the current schedule. However, we will announce those times once we have them established
The Benton School Board voted today to switch to an alternate calendar that allows us to utilize instructional minutes for the remainder of the school year to offset the inclement weather. We will attend school on February 19th-President's Day, March 29th-Good Friday, and Friday, May 24th.
In addition, secondary campuses are adjusting their dismissal times which may result in bus routes being delayed by 10 minutes. Elementary dismissal times remain unchanged so all car riders will be dismissed at normal time. This change is effective immediately and will begin on Monday, February 5th.
If you are not receiving the district's text messages and would like to, text "START" to 98900. To receive messages, even after opting in, you must be a contact for your student in e-school. That means the back-to-school paperwork you filled out at the beginning of the year must have your number listed as a contact for the student. If you have opted out of receiving messages from a different district, chances are we use the same software, and you have also opted out of our communication.
Benton Public Schools will be closed on Monday, January 15, 2023, in observance of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday. Classes will resume on Tuesday, January 16, 2023.

Due to the LEARNS Act, we can no longer count AMI (Alternative Methods of Instruction) days toward the state-required 178 student instruction days. Therefore, if school is canceled due to a weather event, the day(s) will be added to the end of the school year. Decisions regarding school closings will most likely be made the day of.

One of our Panthers needs our help. This is Samantha. She is a 10 year student at Caldwell Elementary. Samantha’s leukemia has recently relapsed. Her best chance for a cure is a bone marrow or stem cell transplant.
It only take a few minutes and just a swab of the cheek to see if you could be a LIFESAVING match for Samantha or others in need. There will be a Swabbing for Samantha event this Saturday.
