LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansas has joined forces with UAMS, the Department of Health and others to introduce the “Arkansas Ready to Learn Healthy School Guide.”
It’s a guide for parents, teachers, faculty, staff and students to plan for safe in-person learning this fall during the coronavirus pandemic.
The guide will offer advice and resources to ensure that schools reopen in a safe way. It was written and assembled by a team of medical, behavioral health, and education experts from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Arkansas Children’s, the Arkansas Department of Health, the Arkansas Division of Elementary and Secondary Education and partners.
