Due to the current rise in positive cases and student/faculty absences, the district will be taking Alternate Means of Instruction (AMI) days on Thursday and Friday of this week. Buses will not be running Thursday or Friday. If you are in need of a student meal for Thursday and Friday, please contact your student’s school office before 10:00am on Thursday. The meals can be picked up between 12:00pm-2:00pm on Thursday in front of the Middle School. Please remember that the school is also out on Monday, January 17, 2022. If your child is positive, please continue to call the school offices to report those for accounting purposes and for identifying probable close contacts. Elementary School/Preschool The Elementary/Preschool will be closed to on-site instruction but available for elementary-aged and pre-school students to assist with childcare. The Elementary will be sending school work packets home with each child. Middle School/High School The Middle School and High School will be closed to on-site instruction. The Middle School and the High School will be utilizing online assignments through Google Classroom. Students who do not have access to the internet will have time upon returning on Tuesday, January 18 to complete assignments. Faculty/Staff All school employees should report as normal. This temporary closure will allow the school additional time for cleaning and sanitation of facilities and buses. It will also give students 5 days as recommended by the Department of Education and the Department of Health to quarantine/isolate from others. Our plan is to be back to full on-site learning on Tuesday, January 19, 2022. We will continue to require masks until our color improves on the ACHI.net website.

We wanted to remind you that face coverings will be required for all students, faculty, and staff of Heber Springs Schools beginning tomorrow, Monday, January 10th. This past week we had to quarantine over 100 students due to lack of face coverings and the rise of Covid once again. We are hopeful that our quarantine numbers will dwindle beginning this week and that we will be able to drop from our current status back down to orange soon.

Unfortunately, the number of positive Covid cases and quarantined individuals are growing and are similar to the numbers we saw in September. According to the Quarantine Mitigation plan developed in August, face coverings will be required for all students and staff when ACHI.com has the area inside our district boundaries highlighted as Red/Purple. The latest ACHI map was posted today, and we are highlighted as RED. Face coverings will be required starting Monday, January 10th, and will continue until ACHI changes our area to Orange or lower. We understand there are many opinions about face coverings/masks and their effectiveness. Our Quarantine Mitigation Plan was developed for the sole purpose of keeping students in school. When all our students and staff wear face coverings, the required number of quarantined individuals are reduced. We have been very fortunate in the past few months that our numbers have been low enough that face coverings were not required. We hope that everyone will follow this plan so that we can get back to those days soon.

Two of our 5th grade students came up with a leadership project of collecting donations for the Heber Springs Humane Society. Students may bring dog food, cat food, pet supplies, or monetary donations from December 6 through December 17. There is a collection box by the Elementary School Office where students can drop off their donations. If a student brings a money donation, please put it in a ziplock bag or envelope, label it Humane Society Donation, and send it to the office. We are very proud of these girls for leading the way with this project. Donations will be delivered to the Humane Society on December 17.
