COVID-19 Updates

Covid-19 Guidelines for the 2021-2022 School Year

All protocols regarding Covid-19 Contact Tracing and Quarantines are determined by the Arkansas Department of Health and the Arkansas Department of Education. The HSSD is committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure the safety and wellness of all students, and to following the guidelines required by state officials. Contact Tracing Guidelines have been updated in recent weeks by the ADH. The HSSD has also been approved by the ADH and ADE to participate in a Test-to-Stay Program option, which could allow students who are exposed to an individual who tests positive for Covid-19 while at school to avoid quarantine and remain at school. The HSSD is also seeking input from Trojan parents/guardians and staff members regarding whether to continue the Mask Requirement after the November 16, 2021 School Board Meeting.
