We hope everyone is enjoying their Fall weekend activities! All Greenwood School campuses will be open with normal schedules starting tomorrow, October 12th.
Greenwood High School, Greenwood Freshmen Center, and Greenwood Jr High School will pivot to online instruction for Thursday, October 8th and Friday, October 9th. This decision was made, in collaboration with the Arkansas Department of Health and the Arkansas Department of Education, due to the large number of teachers in quarantine and a shortage of substitute teachers at this time. COVID-19 positive cases in Sebastian County continue to increase, which in turn has started to filter into the school setting. The district will use this time to thoroughly clean the buildings, and allow time for staff quarantines to expire so we can return to campus with a full staff. Greenwood PreK Center, Westwood Elementary, East Pointe Elementary, and East Hills Middle School will continue normal daily schedules.
Greenwood Jr High School has been notified of 1 positive student COVID-19 case today. This student is also a member of the 7th grade football team. The school district consulted with the Arkansas Department of Health, and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, resulting in the quarantine of probable close contacts from the classroom and bus, as well as the 7th grade football team and one coach. Parents of all quarantined students have been contacted today and those students were moved to online instruction with school issued Chromebooks through September 23rd. In addition, Athletic Director Dustin Smith announced that all 7th grade football activities will be paused until September 24th. Practice will resume on September 24th and regular season schedules will resume on September 29th. Superintendent John Ciesla emphasized there is only one positive case at this time. “These decisions are not easily made, but are in the best interest and safety of our staff and students.”
