Gov. Hutchinson: No high school graduation ceremonies prior to July 1 by Michael Tilley Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Saturday (April 25) that traditional high school graduation ceremonies will not be allowed prior to July 1. Arkansas Department of Education officials also are reviewing options in the event it is not safe to fully open schools in the fall. The governor and Arkansas Department of Education Secretary Johnny Key said during Saturday’s COVID-19 press conference they know the delay is disappointing to many, but is necessary for public safety. “I’m very sympathetic because I have a granddaughter who is a senior in high school this year. But it’s really a risk whenever you bring thousands of parents and students together in one assembly to have a celebration, and that’s exactly the kind of gathering that could lead to a spread of COVID-19,” Gov. Hutchinson said. Key said he would “encourage” school districts to wait until after July 1, but the department is open to alternative graduation plans. He said the department will contact superintendents this upcoming week to let them know how to submit proposals. “There are a number of techniques that schools have already started exploring to see how they could make this happen as a celebration for their seniors, at the same time, taking into consideration and following our social distancing protocols, the restrictions of congregant gatherings of 10 or more people,” Key said. He also said the department will continue to monitor data and work the Arkansas Department of Health to consider any modifications to the July 1 order. He also said social distancing guidelines and other directives issued by the governor will prevent private schools from having a traditional graduation. Education officials and educators also are preparing options in the event COVID-19 spread remains a public health crisis when schools should open in the fall. “We have teams of teachers we brought together, and principals and superintendents, that are planning out different scenarios and possibilities. It is something that we are looking at and hopefully we’ll be presenting the governor with options coming up in the next couple of weeks,” Key said. Gov. Hutchinson said the “first option” is to have schools open as normal, but it’s important to have other options in place. COVID CASES Known COVID-19 cases in Arkansas totaled 2,830, as of Saturday afternoon, up from 2,741 on Friday. Of the 89 new cases between Friday and Saturday, 47 were inmates in the Cummins state prison. Of the total of cases, 1,813 are active, with the remainder accounting for deaths and recoveries. The number of deaths rose from 46 to 49. The number of COVID patients hospitalized in Arkansas was 104 on Saturday, unchanged from Friday. Of the COVID-19 patients, 22 were on ventilators, down from 25 on Friday. As of Saturday at 1 p.m., there were 924,376 U.S. cases and 52,782 deaths. Globally, there were 2,865,938 cases and 200,698 deaths.

We all must come together to stop the spread.” The AAA will continue to receive guidance from the Arkansas Department of Health, the Governor’s Office, and the Arkansas Department of Education.

By now many of you have learned that this afternoon the Governor announced the extension of school closings in Arkansas through Friday, April 17. This extension brings with it a long list of questions that we hope to be providing answers for as further direction comes from the Governor and his staff. What we do know- 1) Following Spring Break our buildings will be open on an abbreviated schedule for our faculty and staff. 2) We will be distributing the second 5 days of AMI by the end of the day tomorrow- which provides for March 30- April 3. 3) A schedule for instruction for April 6 forward will be developed and distributed as further direction is provided by the State. 4) We plan to continue our feeding program weekdays, including Spring Break, from now until school resumes. A revised distribution plan will begin on Monday, March 23, and will be shared tomorrow. More to come…Please continue to monitor the district's website and other media outlets for up-to-date information.

Important update from the Marion School District: There have been significant changes in guidance to schools today regarding COVID-19. As of now, schools in 4 central Arkansas counties have been directed to close due to new presumptive positive cases and direct contact by others with those who have tested positive. The decision to close was made out of an abundance of caution. School closure decisions will be made in consultation with the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) and Arkansas Department of Education (ADE). The two agencies will work jointly to provide guidance to districts based on developments in local communities. The ADH and ADE have established a dedicated hotline for districts to call to discuss whether preemptive closures are advised. We will continue to update you as new information is available. Helpful information on talking with children about COVID-19: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/talking-with-children.html

MARY POPPINS, JR Our first major production was a huge success! The show featured the talents of over 90 VPA students. From acting to singing and set changes to lighting, VPA students were at the center of every aspect. Coached by Drama Director, Whitney Hall, Magnet Director, Brandy Allison, and Choir Director, Barry Bates, work began in October with auditions. Since that time students have had daily practices and rehearsals to perfect the show - and they did an outstanding job! We are so thankful for the support of our community, and while our drama and music departments are already looking forward to the next big show, we will spent the next few weeks reflecting on and celebrating this milestone at VPA!

A MESSAGE FROM ASU Mid-South: We need your help. Only 16 days left. As you may know, October 5 is our 2nd Left Bank Festival, our event to raise money for Greyhound men’s and women’s athletic scholarships. Last year was our inaugural event and we learned so much about how to make this year even more fantastic. We have one amazing event planned. So what do we need from you, you ask? Well, I’m so glad you asked! We need you to tell everyone you know. We need you to talk it up. We need you to go to our Left Bank Facebook page and share our posts on your own Facebook pages. Share on your Instagram pages. Email your friends and help us spread awareness. We need you to encourage your friends and families to come out and run(or walk) one of the races. We need you to come out and enjoy the amazing music that is lined up to play. We need you to come out and cheer on the cooking teams in the catfish cooking competition. In short, we need you! https://www.facebook.com/leftbankfestival/

Dear Friends, After watching the latest PATCAST, I came away humbled. I don’t take for granted the people who trusted Fred Leonard and I enough to buy-in what all the Hometown Showdown entails. At the center of this trust is the belief that we are put on God’s green Earth to make a difference. What have we done for the least of these? I ask this question, knowing that I’m cloaked in human frailty. I’m not perfect. We all aren’t. However, there comes these rare moments when you know that what you are doing is right. The fact that we all are working together to make a difference in the lives of those who are going through battles that we cannot imagine. We can certainly answer the question above. Here’s to you Patriot Nation. Watch this video and be blessed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tm_pMbm-Pow&feature=youtu.be Grandon

We, as many others, have been monitoring the social media post that has referenced the threat of possible school shootings on August 29th. Federal, state, county, and local law enforcement agencies, as well as our own MSD Campus Safety staff, are vigilantly monitoring the situation. At present the threat is believed to be nothing more than a hoax. Moreover, nothing in the post specified our school district or even districts within our region. Nonetheless, we will continue to monitor the situation and take prudent precautions to make certain that our students and staff remain safe. Please remember that you too can assist in keeping our campuses safe by simply reporting anything that you see or hear to any one of our local law enforcement agencies. We will continue to keep you updated as information merits. Thank you for your continued support, thoughts and prayers. #OnePatriotOneCommunity
