Health and safety will always remain a top priority for the Paragould School District. In April of 2022 the district discontinued the practice of contact tracing/quarantining of probable close contacts and reimplemented policy 4.34 as the district’s response to student illnesses. We continue to utilize policy 4.34 to guide our response to illnesses.
Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate at home for 5 days from the onset of symptoms or a positive test. The Arkansas Department of Health guidance states that the isolated individual may return to school on day 6 with a mask and must continue to wear the mask around others through the 10th day. If the Individual is unable to wear a mask, he/she will be required to continue to isolate for the full 10 days.
If you have any questions regarding COVID-19 please contact Lynn Treece at 870-565-8686 or email email@example.com

The Paragould School District Master Facility Plan includes a PE facility on the high school campus. As part of the planning process, the district has arranged for a public meeting to take place on Thursday, August 25 at 6:00pm in the high school auditorium. During the meeting we will discuss partnership funding and various options for future construction. Those in attendance will also be provided with the opportunity to provide district leadership with feedback. We hope to see you there!
Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) is a federal program designed to provide food support to families with children who were receiving free and reduced price school meals and missed school for COVID related absences. It can help families pay for food when students are absent from school due to a COVID-19 related isolation/quarantine. The Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), in collaboration with the Department of Human Services (DHS), received approval to operate this program in response to the COVID-19 related school closures for school year 2021-22.
The State’s plan provides P-EBT benefits to SNAP and non-SNAP households with children who temporarily lost access to free or reduced price school meals due to a COVID related isolation/quarantine. This plan will provide P-EBT benefits to students who: 1) qualify for free or reduced meal benefit and 2) were absent from school due to a COVID related isolation/quarantine. Students will qualify to receive P-EBT benefits if the answer is yes to both statement #1 and statement #2.
The state has formalized a parent initiated option for meal application benefits. Access to the online application can be found on the district website or by clicking on the link below.
Once the application is submitted, the school district will verify the absences, approve the application, and submit the student’s information to the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education. DESE will work alongside DHS to process the benefit for each household. Benefits will be provided at a rate of $7.10 per day/days absent, due to a COVID related isolation/quarantine.
The deadline for a household to complete the application process and submit the application is July 29, 2022.
The Paragould School District will consolidate collected student information and submit the information to the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) by August 12, 2022.
Feel free to contact your child’s school for more information.
