The Springdale Schools are ready and prepared for the 2020-2021 school year with a safe, innovative, culture of caring. We want our parents and students to know they have choices and that the Springdale Schools will provide the highest quality of educational experience.
Under direction of Governor Asa Hutchinson, school will begin with onsite, face to face instruction no later than August 26
The safety of children and adults is of utmost priority.
Current guidelines can be located in the above links regarding the district plan. Additional information will be released closer to school starting. Onsite instruction would shift to remote learning in the event there is a school or classroom closure due to Covid-19. Remote learning will occur online. Students will be provided with technology and supplies in the event of closure. The district is currently working on a plan to support Wifi access as well.
For more information on the safety measure we are implementing in our buildings, see the section on safety.
Parents may choose a blend of on-site instruction at their zoned school and remote learning. In this learning model, students will be involved in asynchronous remote learning. Parents will communicate to the school their plan for blended learning.
