COVID-19 Update 9-22-21

COVID-19 Update 9-22-21


As we said earlier today we want to keep our students, faculty and community safe. Therefore, due to the number of students who are quarantined, we are taking further action to limit exposure on campus.

After assessing the situation and consultation with the Department of Education and the Arkansas Department of Health we are pivoting three classrooms to an Alternate Method of Instruction.
Mrs. Clinkingbeard's, Mrs. Cupples and Mrs. Teague's classes will pivot to an alternate method of instruction until you have been notified that your children can return to on site instruction. All other students will continue classes as usual.


Thank again for your understanding and cooperation it is appreciated.

Free Student Meals

The Calico Rock School District is pleased to announce that USDA has authorized all meals served in the 2021-2022 school year to be at no cost to the students.

However, we need all families to continue to fill out and return meal applications just as you have in the past. Your school district could potentially receive federal dollars based on the number of students who are eligible for free or reduced meals. In other words, the more students who are eligible, the more federal dollars the district receives to pay for things like tutoring and technology. Pandemic-EBT cards could potentially be determined based on free or reduced meal status for the 2022 summer.

If you need assistance with the application contact Stacy Sherrill at the high school (870)-297-3745, Julie Hargett at the elementary (870)-297-8533 or Chelsie Moss at the central office (870)-297-8339. As always, we are glad to help our Pirate families.

Thank you for your support!


COVID-19 Precaution Plan

On August 12, 2021 the Calico Rock Board of Directors adopted the following Covid-19 Precautions Plan.


Calico Rock School District Covid-19 Precautions Plan

 

Purpose:  The intent of the plan is to provide guidance for the Calico Rock School District regarding the use of Covid-19 precautions based on the prevalence of Covid-19 within the Calico Rock School District.

Reason:  The health and welfare of the Calico Rock students, staff and the community are a priority due to the potential effects of Covid-19.  Also, the prevalence of Covid-19 and the high rate of transmission of the new Delta variant puts our students at higher risk than before.  Onsite instruction is the more effective method to meet the educational, social and emotional needs of our students.  The wearing of mask/face coverings is one tool that reduces the chance of exposure and lowers the rate of transmission when worn properly (covering the nose and mouth).

Source: Data to guide the parameters of the plan will be reviewed by the administrative team utilizing https://achi.net/covid19/  and/or covidactnow.org as its primary data sources.  This guideline is subject to adjustments based on guidelines received from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Standard Precautions:  At all levels of risk, classrooms should continue to emphasize the use of washing hands, barriers, daily screening for Covid-19 symptoms, physical distancing, and thorough disinfecting of facilities and buses.

Who:  All staff K-12 and students of K-12.

What:  Wearing of mask/face-coverings for the Calico Rock School District.

Where:  Masks/face-coverings at all Calico Rock School District indoor venues including transportation on buses and when physical distancing of 3-6 feet or more is not an option.  Athletic activities and music practice and competition are exempt from indoor masking: rigorous exercise in P.E. or recess are exempt from indoor masking.

When:  The Calico Rock Schools mask/face-coverings plan for indoor venues will continue until further notice. 


At this time the American Pediatric Association recommends starting school with mask or face coverings required.  Also, Izard County is considered to be at a high risk based on the number of cases in the county.

However, we are looking forward to the day when face coverings will no longer be needed.
 
Remember, stay safe, wash your hands or use sanitizer frequently, mask up and/or physical distance when possible. 
 
Free vaccines are available at your local pharmacy.
