In the event the National Weather Service is predicting a winter storm, our administration monitors the forecast closely. If a winter weather event occurs, our team will make every effort to make a decision regarding school attendance as soon as possible.
If school is canceled, or we opt for early dismissal, notifications will be sent out via the following methods:
Families should make sure all contact information is current and update-to-date in your child's building level office. We apologize if you receive more than one notification, however, we strive to make sure all patrons receive the notice.
Stay safe and warm this winter, wildcats!
Cassville High School Alumni, Evan Stubblefield, has returned to the halls of CHS, but this time, he is working as a wildcat staff member. Stubblefield began his new role in November as the instructor of the newly created Pathways program.
Pathways was established at CHS in the spring of 2020 with the purpose to help students reach their post-secondary goals by providing personalized academic support, mentorship and soft skill development.
“Our Pathways program is an important step to meeting students' individual educational goals,” said Dr. Richard Asbill, Superintendent at Cassville R-IV.
“Mr. Stubblefield will be bringing his experience working with youth and his understanding of the Cassville and surrounding communities to help students focus on Pathway options. Students need choices as they complete high school and look at opportunities and careers to come. Our Pathways program can assist students in making those choices and we are proud to have Mr. Stubblefield assisting in those efforts and goals.”
Pathways is an hourly class that is available for freshmen-senior students. Students enrolled in either online or seated coursework qualify for the program; however, their classroom teacher must first refer the student.
In an effort to provide additional support based on individualized student needs, each section of Pathways is limited to 15 students.
After graduating from CHS in 2011, Stubblefield attended college and earned a degree in Youth Ministry from Ozark Christian College.
“I am simply grateful for this role and embrace it with all that it presents: perseverance, hope, and purpose,” said Stubblefield. “Working with students who have to overcome adversity, find aspiration and determine their motivation for their lives is something I believe is essential to one's path of growing up. I am thankful I get to play a small part in that process for these students.”
The Cassville Community Teachers Association (CCTA) is proud to announce Mr. Caleb Buntin, with Able 2 Products, has been named the 2020 Friend of Education. Superintendent of Cassville R-IV School District, Dr. Richard Asbill, presented Buntin with the award during a Rotary Club meeting on Wednesday, December 9.
Buntin was nominated for this award by a CCTA member in the spring of 2020, prior to the pandemic. The teacher that nominated him offered the following comments:
"Caleb Buntin and Able 2 products are business partners in the Primary school and have been for many years. They are amazing business partners! They go ABOVE and BEYOND for the students and staff in Cassville Primary.
They donated the megaphones to our school for recess. They come in every month to read to the class they are assigned. They have done many community helper days where they bring in lights, sirens and other products to show the students what their business does in the community.
Able 2 has also allowed my class (since they have been my business partner many times) to come to the facility to take tours. They have provided countless snacks, supplies like headphones, pencils, school items, etc... to the students in our school. One year, Caleb came into my classroom with a BRAND new rolling desk chair as a donation to me! It was so gracious and definitely unexpected!
They have such BIG hearts and LOVE our students and school! Each year at Christmas, they give every student in their class a Christmas card with a $2 bill inside, which many students would never see that! They also provide the teacher of the classes they sponsor a significant amount of money to buy books at EACH book fair for their students and classroom! They are remarkable and deserve to win this award!"

Primary students will begin using the new drop-off location on Monday, December 14.
Middle school students will begin using the new drop-off location on Tuesday, December 15.
