Letter from Dr. Ashley

September 7, 2020

Panther Nation-

The third week of school is upon us. It has been such a pleasure to see students back in the classrooms, in the hallways, and even at our first home football game. Our faculty, staff, and students have all done a wonderful job in each building to adhere to social distancing as much as possible. However, with all of the precautions we have put into place at our school, like with any other virus nothing is a guarantee. 

On Monday, September 7th, the Administration at Heber Springs Schools was made aware of a positive COVID-19 case in the Heber Springs Middle School. The Administration has contacted the Arkansas Department of Health for further guidance, and through contact tracing by the ADH and HSSD, the individuals who were at risk for primary exposure have been contacted. The Administration will continue to closely monitor this situation moving forward.

I want to thank the families of those impacted for their patience and understanding as we worked through this situation.

Dr. Andy Ashley
