NO ONSITE SCHOOL FOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 18TH Regrettably, we will not be able to return to onsite instruction tomorrow, Tuesday, January 18th. We have had multiple staff impacted by Covid-19 over the weekend and today and continue to get more reports of student cases, as well. Due to a severe staff shortage impacting transportation, meals and classroom supervision and instruction, and a lack of substitutes, we will be using another AMI day. Students should complete AMI assignments for AMI Day 3, and staff should follow AMI plan for your position. A decision regarding subsequent days will be made and announced by the end of the day on Tuesday. A meal order form will be posted shortly. We need students and staff to continue to notify our nurse at 870-353-8314 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. if you test positive, if you or a household member are symptomatic/testing, or if you are a close contact to a positive case. Thank you so much for your patience as we navigate this spike in the virus. Please share this announcement.
