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.
