Covid-19

In an effort to minimize the spread of Covid-19, Arkansas Lighthouse Academies school districts continue to follow the guidelines of CDC and the Arkansas Department of Health. We will continue to screen and monitor scholars daily.

While COVID-19 does not cause illness in every person who becomes infected, it is highly contagious. Therefore, it is important to be alert to possible signs of Covid-19. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has identified the most common symptoms reported in positive Covid-19 individuals. Below are the CDC symptoms your student my exhibited that suggest further evaluation for COVID 19. It is imperative for parent/guardians to conduct home screening of the following symptoms each morning prior to sending scholar on campus.

  • Fever over 100 degrees F
  • Cough
  • Shortness of Breath/difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Fatigue/muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell

If you are observing the symptoms below, immediately contact your medical provider. Emergency warning signs include:

Please follow the following guidelines:

  1. If your child has a temperature of 100.0°F degrees or higher, they MUST stay home from school.
  2. Make sure your child does not have a sore throat or other signs of illness, like a cough, diarrhea, severe head or stomachache, vomiting, body-aches, or a loss of sense of taste or smell. If they develop these symptoms, they MUST stay home from school.
  3. If your child has had close contact with a COVID-19 case, they MUST stay home from school.
  4. If your child or anyone living in the household is awaiting Covid test results, they MUST stay home from school until test results have been received.
  5. If anyone in the household has tested positive for Covid-19 or exhibiting signs and symptoms, they MUST stay home from school.

Finally, we ask that you please notify your school nurse if you are keeping your scholar(s) home for any of the above reasons or a scholar or household member has obtained a Covid-19 test.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership in keeping our school communities healthy and safe.
