Wednesday, 24 August 2016 15:02

The 21st Century Community Learning Center grant Bolivar R-1 Schools has been so fortunate to utilize during the past five years for afterschool programming has expired.  Therefore, the district revisited the programs and services we are able to offer on a much tighter budget. 

This year Bolivar Schools will be offering an invitational tutoring program on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  This program will begin immediately after the school day and will run approximately an hour and a half, concluding at 4:30 at BMS, 4:40 at BIS and 4:45 at BPS.

Don't miss out on communication from Bolivar R-1

Wednesday, 17 August 2016 10:38

As you may know, the Bolivar R-1 School District utilizes a service called School Messenger for parent communication. Due to the recent changes to the implementation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the FCC now requires families to provide consent to receive non-emergency messages (school events, reminders, etc.) via School Messenger. Please take a minute to watch this quick video and login into in order to ensure you receive valuable information from Bolivar R-1 Schools. Please note emergency messages (snow days, school cancellations, school day emergencies) are not affected by this change and they will be delivered to the phone numbers on file.

Also, SMS/Text alerts are coming! Bolivar R-1 Schools will be releasing more information regarding SMS/Text alerts in the upcoming weeks. Be sure to watch for it!

If you have any questions regarding School Messenger, please contact Katie Duncan at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 417-326-5291.
