Athletic practices have been canceled
Due to the recent development of increased positive testing for the COVID-19 virus, and information that there are positive cases in Atkins as well, we have decided to suspend all athletic practices for Atkins Public Schools teams until July 7. We will continue to monitor the situation, and make adjustments if necessary.
To be clear, we do not feel that any of our students have been exposed from today's practices, but the fact remains that we want your children to be as safe as possible. We did not receive the information that the number of positive cases had in fact included cases in Atkins until today. We ask that you not reveal the name(s) of people you have "heard" are positive. It is our understanding that those who have tested positive are taking the self quarantine guidelines very seriously.
If your child has a practice scheduled for today, or the rest of this month, you can inform them the practice is canceled.
If you have questions, please call your child's coach or building principal or you can call Mr. Jenkins at 479-641-7871.
