It is with a heavy heart that I make this announcement regarding the rest of the 2019-2020 school year. During today’s news briefing, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced that all schools would remain closed for onsite instruction for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Schools will continue to use AMI for instruction during this time of school closure. Kirby School District will continue to use a wide variety of AMI instruction and assignments for our kids throughout the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. We will continue to provide meals on Mondays via drive through at school or bus delivery so long as it is safe and allowable. Our food bank will still be operating. If you need assistance, please contact Nurse Alissa Kelley or Jaime Johnson. At this time, all school related events excluding graduation will be cancelled or postponed to a later date. We will be working on a plan as an administrative team trying to plan for certain events that were cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19 virus. I am very sorry that prom, academic/athletic award ceremonies, field trips, and other events will be cancelled or postponed. As stated by the Governor, graduation ceremonies will be left to the guidance of the health department and at this point “very much in the air.” If and when schools get approval to reconvene, we will do our best to recreate those lost memories. But for now, please practice social distancing and staying away from people if at all possible. The measures that the Governor has put in place are working. The only way that we can get rid of this virus right now and get back to normalcy is to not spread the virus. As you may have probably heard, Arkansas is dropping in regards to the ranking of the states from highest to lowest in the number of COVID-19 cases. We want to keep that trend going down. Please take care of yourself and your families. We miss seeing and interacting with our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Kirby School District at 870-398-4212. If we are away from our office, your call will be routed to one of our cell phones at this number. Sincerely, Kirby School District
We would like to honor Junior Tyler White for being voted on by teachers and staff to represent Kirby High School as Arkansas Boys State delegate. Arkansas Boys State is an immersive program in civics education designed for high school juniors. Since 1940, the week-long camp has transformed the lives of young men throughout our state and beyond. These young men have gone on to become incredible leaders, including President Bill Clinton, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and Senator Tom Cotton — just to name a few. Unfortunately, like many other events, Arkansas Boys State has been cancelled for 2020. Regardless, we are proud of Tyler for being chosen and willing to participate in the week long view image

Monday, April 6 Kirby School District will be implementing a food/drink bag delivery via drive thru at school from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and bus routes beginning at 9:30 am. There will be breakfast, lunch, milk/juice items for four days. If you would like the food/drink bags, please visit the school during the allotted time or be at your normal bus route stop between 9:30 am - 10:30 am. Regarding AMI assignments, teachers that are using Google Classroom assignments will upload AMI days 8-12 if they have not done so already. Also, last week we put in the front of the school filing cabinets for elementary and high school for hard copy AMI assignments. There are file folders with teacher assigned AMI assignments that can be picked up or to drop off completed AMI assignments. If you have any questions, please email building principals or teachers for more information or call Kirby School District at 870-398-4212.
