One of my favorite things about being a CTE(Career & Technical Education) Instructor is the variety of classes we can offer our students. I have my favorite subjects and last year was delighted to have the opportunity to teach a new class, Life & Fitness Nutrition. When school began my enthusiasm dimmed with many virtual students choosing to be at home. When the dust settled I had a single student in my new class; Sean Frizzell, Magnet Cove High School Senior, CTE & E.A.S.T. completer who was an absolute joy to teach, and learn with. The two of us forged ahead and focused on Sean’s health and wellness goals. This is what happened!!
Sean Frizzell lost fifty pounds in nine months! This was documented by a medical doctor and myself using MyFitnessPal and weigh-ins verified with photos and measurements completed at regular intervals. It was not an easy journey and we both had to develop new skills and mindsets in order to navigate the classes in depth standards, much of which required the use of new technology. Sean learned more about nutrition than most adults know and tried many forms of exercise as well. Sean further developed his meal preparation skills and abilities trying many new recipes to find foods that both satiated him and he enjoyed with out throwing him off his healthy path. We explored a variety of both cooked and non-cooked meal prepping. Sean and I had many talks about our body image, relationship with foods, and the emotional eating we had both experienced in the past. I enjoyed teaching Life & Fitness Nutrition and in the words of my only student, “This is the most important class you teach”. I think so too. Magnet Cove High School FCS Instructor, Ms. Patsy Whiddon

COVID Reminder Message February 24, 2021
The snow event last week had students and teachers working virtually from home for 12 days! In this exciting (and cold) week, many of us were somewhat quarantined in our homes for a reason unrelated to the COVID 19 Pandemic! This unexpected “Winter Vacation” gave us all a minute to take our minds off of COVID 19 and had us crossing our fingers that the power did not go out! As we return to campus for onsight instruction, we want to remind everyone to keep us informed in regards to any COVID 19 related cases that may be impacting your student. Whether your child tests positive for COVID 19 or has been identified as being a Close Contact to someone testing positive for COVID 19, the school needs to be informed. We keep record of dates and are here to offer assistance with making sure your child has what they need to work virtually during their isolation or quarantine period, so they do not fall behind in their course work! All information pertaining to COVID 19 at school can be accessed by clicking on the image below.
Please read our updated COVID 19 information, which includes information pertaining to the length of time students will be required to quarantine clicking the following link; https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xN9FR5s9bAY2iygLsPtP5GN1VCeHvlt-DKWTfQhQaKk/edit?usp=sharing
Magnet Cove School District follows the guidance of the Arkansas Department of Health. Per this guidance at this time, we do not share the campus or district number of positive cases. Both FERPA and HIPAA allow the sharing of information to the public health agency in an imminent threat or emergency. We provide this data to the Arkansas Department of Health and these numbers are included in their data. Some school level data is provided via their website, but anything less than 5 becomes identifiable. https://achi.net/covid19/
We have a Point of Contact identified to be our liaison with the Arkansas Department of Health and a process in place to help minimize the risk in our school. The Arkansas Department of Health is identifying confirmed cases on the county level. If there are cases associated with students or staff in the school district, the student or staff member will be notified by the POC and health department officials. For the privacy of students and staff, the district will not be sharing any information unless a student/staff member is identified as a Probable Close Contact to a person testing positive for COVID-19. We are committed to provide the safest learning environment and will follow the guidance provided by the CDC and the Arkansas Department of Education in conjunction with the Arkansas Department of Health. However, if you are overly concerned, we do offer a 100% Virtual Learning Option for the students in our district.
Magnet Cove Families! Big Things are happening!
Drop-off and Pick-up hours for K-5 are 7:30-8:00 and 2:45-3:15. The construction crews will be breaking ground on our new elementary school the first of January 2021. We are REALLY excited to see the new school begin to take shape, but this will mean some changes to our drop-off and pick-up routine! We have created maps that illustrate our new traffic flow for student drop-off and pick up. The PROCESS for K-5 will not change, just where we complete that process! You will no longer enter from highway 51 but will enter from Magnet School Road (which runs parallel and west of the High School Football Field) into our new queuing area, next and southwest to the High School Baseball Field. Our car tag reader has been relocated so for afternoon pick-up, you will wait in the queuing area until dismissal begins. The line will move BEHIND (west) the elementary school, where the new drop-off and pick-up area now is) and where buses have been running since the start of school in August. Once you drop-off or pick-up your child, you will exit onto Highway 51. If you are visiting the school outside of drop-off/pick-up hours, you will enter into the new visitor’s parking area at the end of the elementary school next to Hwy 51. You will park here and then you can walk down the sidewalk to enter the building as usual.
Pre-K (Headstart and ABC Programs) will also enter from Magnet School Road, come up between the elementary building and the baseball field drop off/pick up in front of the Headstart building then exit down the ramp beside the Annex building following the road out to the middle school parking lot.
Middle School traffic will flow as usual.
Attached are maps with arrows showing the new flow of traffic starting January 4, 2021. If you have any questions, please call the elementary office at 501-337-9131. Thank you.

Thank you for all of your help and patience! PANTHER PRIDE RUNS DEEP!
We appreciate and recognize the history of our elementary school and all of our campuses. With construction of the new elementary school to soon begin, portions of our beloved rock wall located on the north side of our campus will be torn down. Our plan is to repurpose the salvageable rocks and all other historical aspects of the current elementary school into the new elementary school where appropriate and feasible. We appreciate and understand that many of our patrons hold sentimental attachment to our present elementary school building and the rock wall.
In the future we plan to provide an opportunity for our community members to obtain a little piece of Magnet Cove history by picking up a rock or brick from the building. We will notify those interested prior to the disposal of any of these sentimental materials. We look forward to merging the history of Magnet Cove Elementary School with its future!
