For the Woodlawn School District - as of March 31, 2020
The administration for the Woodlawn School District is still monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in conjunction with local and federal health authorities, Governor Asa Hutchinson, (DESE) Division of Elementary and Secondary Education, and the (AAA) Arkansas Activities Association. The Governor continues to have a mandatory school closure for all Arkansas schools until April 17th.  As of  March 31, 2020, the administration discussed future plans for the district.  Listed, but not limited to, are those plans:

Athletics and Activities
The AAA continues to have a “Dead Period.” for all member schools until April 17, 2020.  During this time, coaches (licensed teacher coaches and registered volunteers) shall be prohibited from engaging in any type of activity involving student athletes whether it be practice, training, weightlifting, tryouts, competition, or travel.  Further, school athletic facilities will be closed during this period. 

District Events, Groups & Field Trips 
Everything is cancelled or postponed until April 17th.  This includes, but not limited to, group gatherings, prom, competitions, and other events.  WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE, if possible! Everything scheduled beyond April 20 is currently under evaluation.  We will keep you updated!

Attendance & AMI
We will have district-wide AMI days until April 17th.  We will wait on the Governor to direct us for the future.  High School information is listed below.  Elementary information will be posted on the school’s website.  If you have any questions regarding attendance or need AMI assistance, please contact your building principal.

Building Access:  Faculty, Staff, Visitors 
Out of caution and concern for the safety and well-being of our faculty and staff, we are taking the recommendations from the Governor and CDC to remain closed.  Faculty and staff will be notified when they can return to campus.  Schedules have been developed for individuals to be on campus.  If you are unsure, please contact your building principal.  We will minimize the number of people at one time in the building. All buildings will be closed on Friday’s for a 72 hour period for disinfecting purposes.  Teachers, staff and patrons will be contacted when to come to campus to gather or prepare materials, collect personal items, or AMI materials.  Based on growing concerns with the spread of the Coronavirus, NO visitors may enter buildings on campus. 

Nutrition
We will not be providing meals at the main campus.  We are in coordination with the Cleveland County School District for meals which can be picked up at the head start.  You must continue to follow their guidelines for receiving any meals. We are extremely thankful to Mr. Dupuy and his staff for allowing us the opportunity to participate in their meal program.

Stay Healthy Reminders
*Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
*Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
*Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. 
*Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
*Stay home while you are sick; avoid others. Must be fever-free for at least 24 hours without medication to return to school.
*Cover mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
*Call your doctor if you have symptoms such as fever, coughing and trouble breathing
**PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE PLANS MAY CHANGE AT ANY TIME AS WE CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE RAPIDLY EVOLVING COVID-19 VIRUS. WE WILL UPDATE YOU OF ANY CHANGES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Imagination Library

February/March 2020, Cleveland County became a full- coverage County!  

Additional funding beyond the Woodlawn School District was provided by Lucas Moore’s Polar Bear Plunge fundraiser!

In August of 2019, Dr. Sylvia Simon, representing partnerships between the Monticello Medical Clinic and the Dollywood Foundation, attended the Woodlawn Elementary School Open House to sign up children from birth to under age 5 to enter the Imagination Library program which mails books to each child at home each month until the child’s fifth birthday.  The Dollywood Foundation provides funding for half of the cost of each child’s book and the local community raises the other half of the cost of each book. 

We are all excited that Cleveland County children have the opportunity to substantually improve literacy rates during elementary years and beyond starting with this program.

For more information please visit the Imagination Library website at www.ImaginationLibrary.com.

To register birth to under age five children for the program. please contact the Woodlawn Elementary School at 870-357-2211.


 

MEGA BRAIN
Provided by the UAMS Institute for Digital Health and Innovation (IDHI) Stroke Program

 

 

 

November 18, 2019, the Woodlawn School District found the best way to inspire young minds with an enormous brain.  Students saw the Mega Brain and became immediately curious and asked so many questions of the UAMS visiting guests.  The UAMS Institute for Digital Health and Innovation (IDHI) Stroke Program provided a giant inflatable Mega Brain for K-12 students to walk-through and lessons about stroke, healthy lifestyles, telemedicine and much more.  The Mega Brain program was an effective tool for teaching about stroke and stroke symptoms.  Educating children and the public about how to recognize symptoms of stroke saves lives was the message both Marzella Backus, Assistant Director of the IDHI Stroke Program and Sherri Searcy, an Outreach Nurse for the program communicated with the children and staff.  Older students were especially intrigued by the conversations about telemedicine and possibilities for their future.
