Per Governor Hutchinson's news conference, due to the COVID-19 circumstances surrounding our state, he has mandated all schools shut down beginning Tuesday, March 17 through Friday, March 20. Schools have the option to close or operate on Monday, March 16.
Kirby School District will operate Monday, March 16 to allow our families to make arrangements for school dismissal and faculty the opportunity to make arrangements for AMI packets and or Chromebooks for those who have internet access available. If you choose not to send your child to school on Monday, please stop by between 12:00 pm and 4:30 pm to pick up your child's AMI packet and or Chromebook.
Kirby ABC and Kindergarten registration has been postponed for now. A later date will be announced as soon as we get back to normalcy.
Kirby School food pantry is open to all students and their families. Please contact Nurse Alissa at 870-223-2711 or on facebook if you need any assistance at anytime due to the school closing. Bags are already packed up and will be sent home for those students on our backpack program who will be here tomorrow. If your child will not be here but you would like to have their bag of food and extra we will be sending home, please contact Nurse Alissa to make arrangements. You do not have to be signed up on the backpack program to get assistance.
School is to resume March 30. At that time, the state will monitor and reevaluate the situation. We will update as we find out. I know this situation is unlike any we have faced as a school and community. We will all work together to get through this successfully. Thank you to all of our community members inside and outside of our community. #TrojanNation
