An update has been published to the AMI page on the HSSD website with the information included below. With the period for AMI Days extended, the HSSD is working to ensure that a high quality education continues for all students. Starting Monday, April 6, all students in K-12 need access to a technology device with Internet. All students in K-12 will be expected to have daily online interaction with teachers. The HSSD is providing FREE Internet access and FREE technology devices to all students. 

If your student has not checked in with a teacher via Google Classroom and/or Zoom session and/or email, please make sure that communication takes place as soon as possible. If you have questions about how to get a technology device for your student, or how to arrange for the installation of free Wifi, or to find out about free meals being provided across the city, please ask your teacher via email, ask your principal via email, or call the school office. We appreciate our HSSD families so much for the hard work and patience throughout this period of learning.

The Hot Springs School District has approval from the State of Arkansas to use Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) on days when we have inclement weather or exceptional circumstances - like the current ongoing COVID-19 situation - to carry on with the education of our students.

Note for All Students and Families: Teachers will be available to students (or parents) through their Google Classroom and/or email every school day from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. In addition to engaging with teachers online, parents can call HSSD school offices with any questions.

High school students are being contacted individually by school Counselors to ensure that all requirements are being met for coursework and credit.
