Summary of Governors Press Conference (03/13/2020)

Governor Asa Hutchinson and the CDC are asking schools to remain open unless there has been a confirmed positive case in their area. They agree that closing schools do not add to health care, disrupts the conditions of the communities, and that schools are the safest place for many of our students to receive meals and care.

The State of Arkansas will continue to monitor the situation and are asking schools to make preparations in case there is a need to close schools in their area.
