    End of School Information

    Following the guidance of the Jasper County Health Department and other local officials, we will have limited seating for K-8 summer school June 4 through July 1.  With a few exceptions, the high school will continue hosting virtual summer school classes starting May 28.

    As you can guess, summer school will look different this year compared to previous summer schools.  Maintaining social distancing, cleaning, disinfecting, lower class sizes, no transportation, and limiting co-mingling of classes are just a few guidelines we will do our best to follow.  Please enroll as soon as possible as available slots are limited.  Enrollment information can be found at https://bit.ly/2020carthageSS.

    Although we will do our best to follow recommended safety precautions, please recognize we WILL NOT and CANNOT guarantee your child will not get sick.  Summer school is an option.  Simply stated, do not send your child if you are concerned. 

    We hope taking this small step in reopening our schools will provide a sense of normalcy for our children, staff, and community.  The best way to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our children is to have school.  However, as always, we will keep the safety of our children, staff, and community as a top priority. 


    Siguiendo la guía del Departamento de Salud del Condado de Jasper y otros funcionarios locales, tendremos asientos limitados para la escuela de verano K-8 del 4 de junio al 1 de julio. Con algunas excepciones, la escuela secundaria continuará organizando clases virtuales de escuela de verano a partir del 28 de mayo.

    Como puede suponer, la escuela de verano se verá diferente este año en comparación con las escuelas de verano anteriores. Mantener el distanciamiento social, la limpieza, la desinfección, tamaño clases mas bajas, la falta de transporte y la limitación de la combinación de clases son solo algunas directices que haremos todo lo posible para seguir. Inscríbase lo antes posible ya que los espacios disponibles son limitados. La información de inscripción se puede encontrar en  https://bit.ly/2020carthageSS.

    Aunque haremos todo lo posible para seguir las precauciones de seguridad recomendadas, reconozca que NO PODEMOS garantizar que su hijo o hija no se enferme. La escuela de verano es una opción.  En pocas palabras, no envíe a su hijo o hija si está preocupado.

    Esperamos dar este pequeño paso para reabrir nuestras escuelas proporcione una sensación de normalidad para nuestros niños, el personal y la comunidad. La mejor manera de satisfacer las necesidades académicas, sociales y emocionales de nuestros niños es tener escuela. Sin embargo, como siempre, mantendremos la seguridad de nuestros hijos, el personal y la comunidad como una prioridad principal.

    Our School

    Welcome from the superintendent

    Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! We are excited to serve you, your children, and the Carthage community. The Carthage R-9 School District serves over 5,000 students daily on our 12 campuses. We believe each child is provided a quality education and has the opportunity to take advantage of multiple academic programs. District personnel are devoted to “Inspiring Excellence” in each student we serve. We consider the trust parents and the community place in us challenging but also rewarding and promise to do our best to ensure we achieve excellence. Our community and surrounding area continue to grow as families are choosing to raise and educate their children in the Carthage R-9 School District. We continue to be the “destination district” to many parents and staff.

    Great things occur every day in our district. We believe Carthage children receive a challenging, rigorous, and demanding education second to none. We appreciate the support of our community and look forward to a great school year.

    Respectfully,

    Dr. Mark Baker
