The Paragould School District senior high football game scheduled for Friday, September 3 at Rivercrest has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. Currently 15 football players have been quarantined. While it is unfortunate to lose any game on our schedule, we will always put the safety of our student athletes first. The game against Rivercrest cannot be rescheduled. According to AAA guidance, if a senior high non-conference football game is cancelled due to COVID-19, the game is considered a no contest. Our next game will be played on Friday, September 10 at home against Pocahontas.

The Paragould School District approved a Communicable Disease COVID-19 Exposure Control Plan on August 12, 2021. This plan will require all students and staff in pre-kindergarten through grade twelve to wear a mask or face covering while in public indoor settings and on school buses unless able to socially distance. The plan also includes a student mask opt-out form available to the parents of preschool through grade one students. By completing the opt-out form, parents are authorizing their child not to wear a mask while at school. The district will review the mask requirement approximately every 30 days or at each regularly scheduled school board meeting.
