Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson has mandated the closure of all schools beginning Tuesday until the end of the already scheduled spring break. He has allowed local districts to make the decision about Monday.
The BLYTHEVILLE School District will be closed Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27. For the dates of March 16-20, we will be using AMI days. March 23-27 will be Spring Break, as scheduled. AMI packets should have been sent home with K-8 students on Friday and BHS students have access online.
Administration, custodians and maintenance staff should report to work Monday, March 16 to assist with preparation and planning to continue supporting our students during this time.
Further actions will be evaluated over the next two weeks and communicated at that time. To stay informed on this matter, we encourage using a reputable source such as www.CDC.gov. Our School District will continue to provide updates through our school website, Facebook, Twitter, and School Messenger to inform our students and parents of additional information.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation while we all navigate this unprecedented situation.
