COVID-19 Update 3-13-20 #2
A press conference was held Thursday 3-13-20 at 1:30 pm by Governor Asa Hutchinson. Based the guidance provided by the Center for Disease Control it is NOT recommend to close schools unless a case of the virus has been confirmed in that community. The Governor has faith that the people of Arkansas will use good judgement in these matters and follow the protocol recommended by the CDC.
Johnny Key, Commissioner of Education says that based on CDC guidance, schools are the safest place for students to be unless they have a confirmed case of COVID-19 in their community. He said, It would not be prudent to interrupt the educational process where some students are receiving services in addition to education such as meals and mental health services that they depend on daily. Therefore, the focus is on keeping schools open at this time.
The total presumptive positive cases in Arkansas as of (3-13-20) is up to 9 and all of those cases are in the Little Rock area.
Calico Rock School District would like to inform everyone that school districts in Arkansas have been granted 5 additional AMI days. We have used 3 of our original 5, therefore we now have 7 days to use. We hope they will not be needed.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.

Student of the Week!
Kate Shinn- 12th grade
Even though she has only been at Calico for 3 1/2 weeks, you wouldn’t be able to tell it. She has fit right in and became a Pirate. She is a hard worker and always strives to do her best. She does all of this with a smile on her face. She is just such a pleasant person and I enjoy being around her.
