We are happy to announce that the Arkansas Activities Association and the Arkansas Department of Health have given public schools permission to start a Phase I reopening of sports across the state. June 1 is the start date and coaches will be contacting athletes on practice times and guidelines for practices.
Please know that the Arkansas Department of Health and AAA guidelines will be followed closely to ensure the health of our players and coaches. The rules they established for Phase I reopening include: daily screenings that include checking temperature, a questionnaire, wearing masks, social distancing requirements and sanitizing equipment. In regards to wearing masks, we encourage students to bring their own personal mask and their own bottle of water.
There are also rules regarding total numbers inside buildings and outside social distancing requirements that will be followed. Each sport will have unique requirements as well and the coaches will communicate those to parents and players.

Friends, we would like to address some of the information and misinformation regarding the CDC recommendations that were published this week. First, please know that our number one priority at Cave City School is the safety and well being of our students and staff.
The document published by the CDC are recommendations. The Arkansas Department of Education sets the rules that we must follow. ADE is still working on the guidelines for Arkansas schools. A lot of things can and will change by the time school starts back.
At Cave City School we will have an online option for our students when school reopens. Our administrative team has been working with our teachers on this since we closed in March. We are purchasing technology for our teachers and students so we can do this successfully. Many hours of our teachers yearly professional development requirements will be spent learning to use this technology and getting lessons online. In the event we have to close again or parents choose to keep their students at home, online instruction will be available.
Additionally, we are looking at some blended systems and ways to safely allow students with health concerns to attend classes on campus if they choose to.
This is new territory for all of us. What we know for certain is, information changes often and there is a lot of false information circulating. We will have to be able to "monitor and adjust" as we go forward. We will follow the guidelines from ADE once they are published. We will provide your student with the safest and best possible instruction whether it be online, in person, or a combination.
