The USDA program that provided free meals for all students during COVID has ended. This means that families must apply and meet the qualifications for free/reduced meals or they will have to pay the full price for each meal. The district also receives important funding based on the number of students who qualify for free/reduced meals. These funds help provide vital services for our students such as after school tutoring, reading programs, etc. Please visit www.mymealtime.com to apply. Applications must be submitted before September 30 for the district to receive this funding.

We are monitoring the weather and road conditions. At this time, temperatures are forecasted to hover just above freezing. Parents who are concerned about inclement weather may check out their students today, March 11, and have the absence excused. Families may also call the office to have their high school student released to drive home from campus. On-site instruction will continue and campuses will remain open throughout the school day. Buses will run their normal after school routes.
We may need to release school early today due to inclement weather. If we make the decision to do this we will notify all parents via our text message system and we will post the information on Facebook and our website.
The administration is aware of rumors that have been circulating throughout the district regarding threats made toward the student body and faculty. We have investigated and located the origin of these threats. The Clarksville Police Department is assisting the district with this issue. At no time were any students or staff in danger.
The Clarksville School Board met last night, February 7th, in response to the Governor ending the directives for students and staff to quarantine and mask. The board voted to end those mandates in both school facilities and buses. Student and staff illness will be handled in accordance with your child’s student handbook and district policy, as it was prior to COVID-19. If you have any concerns, please contact your child’s school office or the school nurse.

Clarksville Schools will not have onsite learning tomorrow, February 3rd. Students must participate in AMI tomorrow so that they will be counted present for the day. Teachers will make AMI instructions available online via Schoology and/or paper packets will be sent home with students. Be prepared to have an AMI day on Friday as well. We will make this call by noon on Thursday. Weather models indicate that hazardous road conditions will be present Thursday morning through Friday. AMI lessons will be sent home today or may be accessed via Schoology. Students must participate in AMI to be counted present for the day.
Tomorrow, January 20th, will be an AMI day for the Clarksville School District. The number of positive cases and quarantines for both staff and students has continued to rise. With the current numbers of staff out we would be unable to supervise all classes and areas of the buildings. Additionally, we have multiple cafeterias who have too many staff out to be able to serve meals. Our transportation department has more bus drivers out than we are able to secure substitutes for. For these reasons, the Clarksville School District will transition to an AMI day for Thursday, January 20. We will attempt to reopen the buildings for onsite instruction on Friday. An announcement will be sent out on Thursday afternoon to let everyone know the status for Friday. Parents, please keep a close watch on your children and if you see any symptoms of COVID or test positive, please keep your child at home and contact the school nurse. Meals will be available for pickup. Please call your school office for information about where and when you can pick them up.
Tomorrow, January 19th, will be an AMI day for the Clarksville School District. Yesterday, when the decision was made to reopen schools for onsite instruction, the district had enough staff and substitutes to cover all classes. Overnight an additional 20 staff members became quarantined or sick. Unfortunately, that number has continued to rise today. Most of the employees who are out will not be able to return to school until at least Thursday, January 20. For this reason, the Clarksville School District will transition to an AMI day for Wednesday, January 19. We will attempt to reopen the buildings for onsite instruction on Thursday. An announcement will be sent out on Wednesday afternoon to let everyone know the status for Thursday. Parents, please keep a close watch on your children and if you see any symptoms of COVID or test positive, please keep your child at home and contact the school nurse.
Although the school district is closed, our ARcare School-Based Health Center is still open! This clinic is available for students, faculty & staff, and families of the school to visit. They do not see the general public at this time. If you are one of the people mentioned above, call to make an appointment.

Throughout the day the number of staff that are sick and/or quarantined continued to rise. Due to this we have no choice but to close the district to onsite instruction for January 12-14, and transition to AMI. Students will work on their AMI assignments. Monday, January 17 is the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday. School will be closed as scheduled. Classes will resume onsite on Tuesday, January 18.
Due to the number of staff that are currently sick and/or quarantined, individual schools or possibly the entire district may be forced to close on very short notice. We are asking that parents prepare themselves for the possibility of their child’s school closing because of COVID related issues. We will do our best to provide you with timely information concerning school closures.
