Back to School Rules

NWA Daily

With school 3 weeks away, the Ar Dept. of Education released updated guidance for next school year regarding COVID safety.

  • Updated info: Students who have been exposed to virus will not be required to quarantine, so long as they have no symptoms and all parties wear their masks. For unvaccinated individuals, mask-wearing is recommended and highly encouraged.
  • For the little kids: These rules apply only to students 12 and over. For the young ones, "consistent mask usage is recommended while indoors in all school settings." There is likely more local guidance to follow.
