Sloan-Hendrix School: While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Arkansas at this time, please know that we are monitoring the situation closely. In the event that an outbreak does occur, it is possible that school will be closed for a period of time. As with any school closure, advanced notification is always preferred so that we can provide families with ample time to secure child care. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee we will have prior knowledge before the need to make such an announcement.

In the event that school is closed, we will be using AMI Days for the first 10 days missed. This is not to suggest or predict that 10 days will be missed. Packets for AMI Days 1-5 have already been sent home with students. New packets for days 6-10 will be sent home by the end of this week.

As of now, the best protection we can take is to approach this as if we are trying to avoid contracting the seasonal flu. Please remember the following:
Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
Always wash hands for at least 20 seconds
Cover coughs and sneezes
Do not share food or drinks
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
Do not return to school after sickness until 24-hours free of fever without the use of fever reducing medication and 24-hours free of vomiting

As we monitor this situation, we will continue to receive guidance and resources from the ADE, CDC, and ADH to assist us in providing an appropriate response. Providing a safe environment for our students, faculty, and staff is and will always be our top priority.
