Student health and wellness is a top priority at Calico Rock Schools. We regularly monitor announcements from the World Health Organization and the CDC. We are aware that COVID-19 is presumptively now in Arkansas, and our administrators and the school nurse are also monitoring announcements from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Arkansas Department of Health, and the Governor's office.
All employees are taking precautions to disinfect their classrooms and work spaces in order maintain a healthy environment for our students.
As parents, you can help by reminding your children on a regular basis to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and hot water, remind them to keep their hands away from their faces, and explain to them the importance of not sharing personal items or food and drinks.
Children are less likely to be affected by COVID-19; however, they can be carriers and spread the virus to older adults and to those with weakened immune systems who can be adversely affected.
When students feel better, they learn better, and we want our Pirates to stay healthy so they can continue to take advantage of all the opportunities we have to offer.
Thank you for being a part of our Pirate family!
