We must report our completion rate to the Arkansas Department of Education and if the assignments were not completed, we will have to add our two AMI days to the end of the year. > Please stay home if you are not feeling well. > Use common sense - keep your hands washed or sanitized, do not share food, drinks, or other items, be conscious of how close you choose to get near others. You are encouraged to wear a mask. If you need a mask, come to the front office. > Bring your water bottle or a container with a lid so that you can use the bottle-filling stations. The cold weather has returned. Dress appropriately. Check the Lost-&-Found for coats and jackets. The Library is closed until further notice.
