In an effort to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus within our district we are asking all parents/guardians, of students who will be in attendance onsite, and all employees to notify our designated Points of Contact immediately when the following occurs:
• Someone in the household has tested positive for COVID-19.
• Someone in the household has been identified as a Close Contact to a positive case of COVID-19 and is requiring quarantine and/or recommended to be tested for COVID-19.
• Student attending onsite and employees who are being tested for COVID-19. If symptomatic, student/staff should remain in quarantine pending results of the COVID-19 test.
Please take a moment to view our flow chart regarding the actions we will take if one of our students or staff members tests positive for COVID-19 or is suspected to be positive. This flow chart is based on the requirements and recommendations from the Arkansas Department of Health. View the flow chart HERE.
You can reach our Points of Contact by calling your school's front office or using their email address listed on the flow chart. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Together we can help keep our Sheridan School District family safe, healthy and ready to learn during this school year.
The Sheridan School District is reporting the number of active positive COVID-19 cases as well as the number of individuals who are under quarantine on the COVID-19 Dashboard available on the SSD website. To find the dashboard, click on Menu, then COVID-19 Cases. We are updating the numbers every school day before 4:30 p.m. Due to HIPAA Laws, the Sheridan School District will not release additional information, including the name(s) of positive COVID-19 student(s) or staff member(s). All probable close contacts will receive a personal phone call and will be instructed to quarantine for 14 days.
