Valley Springs Geek Squad - "You Wreck it, We Tech it”

Our goal is to make sure Faculty/Staff and Students have the best possible experience involving technology. We do all we can to make sure everything runs smoothly throughout the year and continuously strive to improve what we currently have.    


Technology Coordinator - Mike Whitescarver

"I grew up in Valley Springs, graduated from the school, went on to graduate from College of the Ozarks with a BS in Computer Science, and then moved to Joplin, MO.  There I resided for 6 years, writing computer software for a manufacturing company called Leggett & Platt. (I also got married in that time span...love you Aimee!)  In the summer of 2007, I took a job offer to come back to Valley Springs and become the Technology Coordinator at the school.  Since that moment, my life has been golden...well, for the most part. (wink) I love my God, wife, son & daughter, Cardinals, Razorbacks, and to joke around.  Oh...I kinda like technology stuff too."

Computer Technician- Josh Moore

"Well let’s see.  It’s hard to sit down and write about yourself, so I will give a whirl.  Technology is exciting to me, I guess it always has been.  At a young age I remember always wanting to disconnect and reconnect cables, take things apart to figure out the problem, diagnose etc.  It’s a world that is changing and everything around us seems to be more “techy”.  I love it.  I am not only just a “computer geek” but I am also a fan of sports.  Unlike the guy above me I am an Alabama Fan as well as a White sox fan.  I enjoy being with my beautiful Bride and family.  I want to strive daily to be more like my Jesus, when I can be like him then I can be the better at all my other titles."

1/5/24 - Bus Snow Routes Pick Up & Drop Off Hubs Information:  Today was a great reminder that winter weather is here. The snow was and still is beautiful. There is also a possibility of winter weather next week as well so we want to make sure that we are all prepared.
With that being said, since we no longer have the option of using AMI Days and all of our snow days will be real SNOW DAYS THAT WILL HAVE TO BE MADE UP, we wanted to come up with plan that allowed the ones that could safely get to school in the event of a small snow storm to do so. Therefore, we can still count it as a school day.
Therefore, we have created what we call snow routes that will utilize strategic hubs or pick-up locations around the district. These hubs will be the only place that the buses will be picking up and dropping off students on days that we deem it necessary to run snow routes due to the weather. Please click the following link to access our snow route hubs. https://bit.ly/vssnowhubs
Pick-up at all hubs will be from 7:15-7:30. The buses will leave at exactly 7:30.
For the afternoon drop off, we ask that parents arrive at the hubs by 3:25 at the same hub in which your child was picked up for school.
There will be 1-2 buses at each hub.
Pick-up/drop-off will only occur at the hubs.
Rest assured that student and staff safety is at the forefront of our minds and we will have a snow day/no school if we do not feel like the roads are safe enough for us to travel to school.
In the event that your road is too treacherous to make it to school, please contact the office of the school that your student attends.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we try this new strategy in the event of winter weather.


Student Drop Off/ Pick Up MapHere is the car rider pick up/drop off map.  We tried our best to make it readable.  However, you will see the elementary entrance and Rally Hill Road are are two main entrances/exits.  They look congested.  Just remember to be patient at the beginning of school while we get used to the flow. 


Attention:  A change for this year due to safety concerns is that no cars will be allowed on campus until 3:10 in the afternoon.  This includes Little Red School House and the Preschool.  We had a couple of close calls last year and want to keep all of our students safe.  At 3:10 you will be able to pull up at the normal pick up spot by the old gym. 

We ask that you do not get to campus until 3:10.  Students will not be dismissed until this time.  I would suggest not lining up on the highway, it is a safety concern and the Sheriff's Department and State Police may make you move your vehicle. 

Also, as a reminder, in the morning, students cannot be dropped off until 7:30. 

We look forward to seeing you this week.  Again, these changes are for the safety of our students.
