Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community

Pea Ridge School District received direction from the Arkansas Department of Health and Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to close school beginning Monday, March 16, 2020. Pea Ridge Schools are scheduled to reopen on Monday, March 30, 2020. All sporting events, school activities, and school-related travel have been canceled during this time. 

Students will begin off-campus instruction delivery on Tuesday, March 17, 2020.  Teachers and Staff of Pea Ridge School District will utilize Monday, March 16, 2020, as the final day to prepare for off-campus instruction.  Delivery may look different depending on a student’s grade level and individual needs. Each student’s teacher will communicate for off-campus instruction beginning on Tuesday, March 17, 2020.  Off-campus instruction will pause during the regularly scheduled week of Spring Break (March 23-27, 2020). At this point in time, we are hoping to re-open for on-site face to face instruction on Monday, March 30, 2020.  Please note that as always follow the school district’s website and Facebook page for the latest and most current school opening and closing information. 

Chromebooks will be available for pick up tomorrow, Monday, March 16, 2020, at the Intermediate and Middle School campuses from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm in the main lobby.  This is for students who are enrolled at Intermediate and Middle School only.  

The district will begin its seamless lunch option tomorrow, Monday, March 16, 2020.  Click here for the details of the lunch program.  

These days will be classified as Alternative Method Instruction (AMI) days. Please refer to the following link for the most up-to-date information regarding the COVID-19 virus and the Pea Ridge School District’s source for communicating to the school and the local community. Your partnership during this time is critical for the success of our students.

School District Employees will be receiving a memo with clarification regarding their roles and responsibilities during off-campus (AMI) instructional days by 4:00 pm.

Respectfully, 

Pea Ridge Schools
