Gov. Hutchinson: No high school graduation ceremonies prior to July 1 by Michael Tilley Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Saturday (April 25) that traditional high school graduation ceremonies will not be allowed prior to July 1. Arkansas Department of Education officials also are reviewing options in the event it is not safe to fully open schools in the fall. The governor and Arkansas Department of Education Secretary Johnny Key said during Saturday’s COVID-19 press conference they know the delay is disappointing to many, but is necessary for public safety. “I’m very sympathetic because I have a granddaughter who is a senior in high school this year. But it’s really a risk whenever you bring thousands of parents and students together in one assembly to have a celebration, and that’s exactly the kind of gathering that could lead to a spread of COVID-19,” Gov. Hutchinson said. Key said he would “encourage” school districts to wait until after July 1, but the department is open to alternative graduation plans. He said the department will contact superintendents this upcoming week to let them know how to submit proposals. “There are a number of techniques that schools have already started exploring to see how they could make this happen as a celebration for their seniors, at the same time, taking into consideration and following our social distancing protocols, the restrictions of congregant gatherings of 10 or more people,” Key said. He also said the department will continue to monitor data and work the Arkansas Department of Health to consider any modifications to the July 1 order. He also said social distancing guidelines and other directives issued by the governor will prevent private schools from having a traditional graduation. Education officials and educators also are preparing options in the event COVID-19 spread remains a public health crisis when schools should open in the fall. “We have teams of teachers we brought together, and principals and superintendents, that are planning out different scenarios and possibilities. It is something that we are looking at and hopefully we’ll be presenting the governor with options coming up in the next couple of weeks,” Key said. Gov. Hutchinson said the “first option” is to have schools open as normal, but it’s important to have other options in place. COVID CASES Known COVID-19 cases in Arkansas totaled 2,830, as of Saturday afternoon, up from 2,741 on Friday. Of the 89 new cases between Friday and Saturday, 47 were inmates in the Cummins state prison. Of the total of cases, 1,813 are active, with the remainder accounting for deaths and recoveries. The number of deaths rose from 46 to 49. The number of COVID patients hospitalized in Arkansas was 104 on Saturday, unchanged from Friday. Of the COVID-19 patients, 22 were on ventilators, down from 25 on Friday. As of Saturday at 1 p.m., there were 924,376 U.S. cases and 52,782 deaths. Globally, there were 2,865,938 cases and 200,698 deaths.

Spring Sports Cancelled Due to COVID-19 Pandemic After multiple conversations with the Arkansas Department of Health, the Governor’s Office, the Arkansas Department of Education and with the announcement of the closure of Arkansas schools through the end of the school year, all remaining AAA spring activities, state championships, AHSCA Coaches Clinic, and All-Star games have been cancelled. “Today’s heart wrenching decision is difficult for all members of the AAA family,” said Lance Taylor, AAA Executive Director. “We sympathize with the students, coaches, parents, and school communities, and especially our graduating seniors, but we recognize that the cancellations will allow our collective focus to remain where it is needed at this time – on the health and safety of all Arkansans. We all must come together to stop the spread.” The AAA will continue to receive guidance from the Arkansas Department of Health, the Governor’s Office, and the Arkansas Department of Education. The AAA wishes to thank them for their leadership during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Important update from the Marion School District: There have been significant changes in guidance to schools today regarding COVID-19. As of now, schools in 4 central Arkansas counties have been directed to close due to new presumptive positive cases and direct contact by others with those who have tested positive. The decision to close was made out of an abundance of caution. School closure decisions will be made in consultation with the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) and Arkansas Department of Education (ADE). The two agencies will work jointly to provide guidance to districts based on developments in local communities. The ADH and ADE have established a dedicated hotline for districts to call to discuss whether preemptive closures are advised. We will continue to update you as new information is available.

They then brought their character to life by creating an illustration.

Dear Friends, After watching the latest PATCAST, I came away humbled. I don’t take for granted the people who trusted Fred Leonard and I enough to buy-in what all the Hometown Showdown entails. At the center of this trust is the belief that we are put on God’s green Earth to make a difference. What have we done for the least of these? I ask this question, knowing that I’m cloaked in human frailty. I’m not perfect. We all aren’t. However, there comes these rare moments when you know that what you are doing is right. The fact that we all are working together to make a difference in the lives of those who are going through battles that we cannot imagine. We can certainly answer the question above. Here’s to you Patriot Nation. Watch this video and be blessed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tm_pMbm-Pow&feature=youtu.be Grandon
