OSD Covid-19 Update 3.31.2021

Ozark School District - from the desk of Jim Ford

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson and the Arkansas Department of Health announced today, March 30, 2021, the requirement to wear masks will end. Throughout the pandemic, Ozark School District has diligently complied with the directives of the Arkansas Department of Health, and we will continue to do so.  

Therefore, effective tomorrow, March 31, 2021, masks will no longer be required to be worn by students, staff, or visitors when on Ozark School District campuses. All other directives of the Arkansas Department of Health continue to be in effect including enhanced sanitization practices and social distancing etc…

Although no longer required, students, staff, and visitors are welcome to continue to wear masks at school and school events.

As always, if you have questions or concerns please contact me or any Ozark School District Administrator.

OHS Covid-19 Information

At Ozark School District, we are committed to providing a safe learning environment for students. The purpose of the Covid-19 information tab is to provide a one-stop source of information for students, parents or guardians, and school staff.

We currently recommend that parents and guardians screen students each morning before school using the screener below. This screener is based on information from the Center for Disease Control and the Arkansas Department of Health.

A printable copy of the screener can be accessed by clicking the image.

The following is the September 2020 guidance to schools regarding student symptom screening from the CDC.

“We learn more about COVID-19 every day, and as more information becomes available, CDC will continue to update and share information. As our knowledge and understanding of COVID-19 evolves, this guidance may change. However, based on the best available evidence at this time:

  • CDC does not currently recommend universal symptom screenings (screening all students grades K-12) be conducted by schools.
  • Parents or caregivers should be strongly encouraged to monitor their children for signs of infectious illness every day.
  • Students who are sick should not attend school in-person.”
