The Arcadia School Board and administration are excited to share that we are beginning the process of writing a strategic plan for Arcadia Local Schools. A strategic plan will allow our community to come up with both long and short term goals and plans for the district. This planning process will take time and a great deal of input from the school community. One way to start this process is to have students, staff, and parents/guardians complete surveys. The feedback/data gathered in these surveys will help to guide and direct the decision making process moving forward. Surveys must be completed by Friday, June 4, 2021.Please click here to access the survey links

Arcadia Local Schools will be starting everyday instruction at school for all students starting Oct. 12th. As we move forward our district will utilize local and area data to determine the type of instruction that occurs for Arcadia students. There are several other county schools that will also be shifting to 4 or 5 days, all in over the next several weeks. We are all working with the county health department to make this adjustment to provide a safe learning environment while increasing instructional time for students. The goal of this change is to base Arcadia’s instructional options on Arcadia’s data. This will require the Arcadia Schools Community to continue making responsible decisions about keeping students home when they are sick and limiting exposure from outside our community. Local trends and data that will be used in determining Arcadia’s instructional options include, but are not limited to:Positive test results for students and staffNumber of quarantine staff and students and reason for quarantineDaily attendance and number of students out due to flu like symptoms (possible COVID)Millstream dataNeighboring districts dataCounty trendsLocal community trendsIf we need to go to all online instruction, you will be given advanced notice using the phone system and the website before the change occurs. This will allow students, staff and parents to prepare and plan for an initial shift to all online instruction to help break the cycle of spreading the illness. Because COVID and Flu symptoms are very similar, and understanding that COVID can be asymptomatic, we feel that an online instructional option to stop the spread is the best option to reduce contact with other people.Please keep in mind, with all our students here at the same time, it will be very difficult and sometimes even impossible to social distance. Because of this, we will be forced to rely even more heavily on the need to wash hands, use sanitizer and wear a mask. We thank you for your vigilance leading up to this point, which has given us the opportunity to come back 5 days. We ask for your continued work to help reduce the possibility we will have to change from this model moving forward. We thank you in advance for all your support and encouragement of our young ones to do just that.Thank you, Arcadia School Re-Opening TeamClick the more link to download the above letter.
