Summer Feeding Program, Summer School and 2020-21 Fall Semester.
McGehee School District wishes to thank all of our parents and our communities for partnering with us to provide nutritious breakfasts and lunches to students during these trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the McGehee School District is temporarily suspending its feeding program after May 22, 2020, so that we can work on our restroom renovation project, we have made sure that our children will continue to have healthy food.
Baylor’s Meals-to-You will be mailing two weeks of food at a time to our students’ homes. Parents have been contacted and have been signing up for these services for several weeks. Also, parents have been supportive by working with the school district to obtain and verify each student’s correct address.
Thank you again, parents and communities, for working with us on providing nourishing meals to our students.
McGehee School District will keep you updated on summer school and the start of the 2020-21 school year as we are making plans for a safe return to school. We know that school will not look exactly the same as it has in the past, but there will be protocols in place to keep our staff and students safe and healthy. If you have any questions, please call:

"Beating the Odds" High Math Growth: High School Level (Southeast Region)
McGEHEE HIGH SCHOOL has been recognized by the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas as a school that is Beating the Odds, because students demonstrated high growth on the 2019 ACT Aspire even though the school serves a high percentage of students who participate in Free and Reduced Lunch! Growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that our school is having on students!
Congratulations to all of our staff and students for this outstanding achievement! Thanks to the University of Arkansas OEP for the recognition.

McGehee High School Partners with the Arkansas Rural Health Partnership to Train Students in teen Mental Health First Aid
tMHFA is an in-person training designed for high school students to learn about mental illnesses and addictions to help them identify and respond to friends who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem. With this training, our high school students will be empowered to assist their friends when a mental health problem or crisis, such as suicidal thoughts, is apparent.
The course specifically teaches the important step of involving a responsible and trusted adult. As such, we are also training thirty of our school staff in Mental Health First Aid for Adults Working with Young People.
The National Council for Behavioral Health and Born This Way Foundation are piloting the course in over 35 high schools across the country, including MHS. After the pilot program is complete, the training course will be available to the public.
Thank you for your continued support of MHS and this community. We are excited to support a path toward greater awareness about mental health and increased capacity to respond to students with mental health problems.
