As we start the 2022-23 school year, we are all aware that variants of the COVID-19 virus continue to impact our community. There is an uptick in COVID-19 positive cases in our area at this time. We are also heading into cold and flu season. To help promote a clean environment for learning, the school district has:
Hand sanitizer in classrooms and sanitizer stations throughout the buildings
Touchless water refilling stations
Reinforcing the importance of personal hygiene (covering mouth when coughing/sneezing, proper hand washing, etc)
High-touch area cleaning/sanitizing throughout the day
Students who test positive for Covid-19 should isolate for five days, and are required to wear a mask for an additional five days after release of isolation. In addition, we ask that you notify the school should your child(ren) test positive for Covid-19 in order to correctly determine the isolation release date. At this time, no close contact quarantining is required per the CDC and Arkansas Department of Health. These guidelines are subject to change at any time. Please note that if your child is in Pre-K, guidelines and recommendations are different. Please call your Pre-K for specific recommendations for that age group of students.
Symptoms of Covid-19 are similar to the regular seasonal flu and sinus infections and include fever, coughing, headache and shortness of breath. Some have reported additional symptoms, such as runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, and loss of smell.
Individuals who need medical care should call their medical providers to report their illnesses prior to seeking care at a clinic, physician’s office, or hospital.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s school.
