The Crossett School District Ready for Learning Plan was developed to address the likelihood of positive COVID-19 cases within the staff and students and those who are identified as Probable Close Contacts (PCC). A person who has a positive test for COVID-19 will be isolated for at least 10 days before they are allowed to return to their normal activities. A person who has been identified as a Probable Close Contact has not tested positive, but rather has been in close contact (within 6 feet) for more than 15 minutes with someone who has tested positive. A PCC must quarantine for 14 days following close contact with a positive individual before they can return to their normal activities.
At this time, Crossett Middle School has one active COVID-19 case. However, there have been several in our teaching staff identified as a PCC, which requires a 14-day quarantine. The Crossett School District Ready for Learning Plan mentioned above includes an option to move to remote learning if necessary. Due to the number of quarantines at Crossett Middle School, students in grades seven and eight will move to remote learning on Tuesday, October 13, 2020. This will continue at least through October 19, 2020, and possibly through October 23, 2020. Students in grades five and six will report to onsite instruction as normal. Again, only students in grades seven and eight will move to remote learning. Students will access their lesson through Google Classroom and the Summit Learning Platform. All other campuses will continue with on-site instruction as normal.
Below is a summary of each building and their learning pathway for the week of October 13th:
Crossett Learning Center: Onsite Instruction
Crossett Elementary School: Onsite Instruction
Crossett Middle School (grades five and six): On-site Instruction
Crossett Middle School (grades seven and eight): Remote Instruction
Crossett High School: On-site Instruction
Again, only students in grades seven and eight will move to remote instruction.
In the event it becomes necessary to change the above mention pathways, it will be communicated as soon as the decision has been finalized. If you have any questions or need any assistance please contact the office at your child’s school.
