Covid-19 Update


Dear Camden Fairview families:

Thank you for your support and patience as we work through the challenges of Covid-19 and the latest Omicron variant. I wanted to share another update. Data released by Arkansas Center for Health Improvement (ACHI) this week shows residents of Camden Fairview School District at status level pink with 200 or more new known infections for the previous 14-days per 10K residents. We are continuing to closely monitor staff and student absences due to Covid-19 quarantines and active positives.

Camden Fairview does not have a virtual option this year. If our Covid-19 numbers increase to a point that we are unable to safely staff our buildings or transport students, we’ll be transitioning to use one of the ten AMI days provided by the Department of Education. Like all districts, we’re facing challenges because of Omicron, but we’ve been able to continue providing the in-person learning and services that our students need because we have a large number of staff who are willing and able to cover absences where needed, our district’s mask policy, and our employees’ high vaccination rate. Every teacher and staff member is working hard to be at school to educate and support your students.

Every day, we review student and staff attendance and staffing availability to determine if an AMI transition is needed for the next day or remainder of the week. It is unlikely that we would ever send students home mid-day transition to AMI. If the decision is made to transition to AMI, we will notify CFSD families through E-Notes, automated phone calls, the district website and social media. Based on this morning’s numbers, we will be in-person tomorrow, January 13th.

Please remember that we must all work together to ensure that our students and staff are able to continue to have the benefits of in-person learning. Please wear a mask, follow social distancing guidelines, stay home when sick, and talk to your doctor about getting a Covid-19 vaccine and booster.

Thank you.
