Two Fountain Lake School District employees have tested positive for COVID-19. One of the employees is a football coach. We have followed the Arkansas Department of Health contact tracing guidelines and have found that several members of our junior and senior high football teams were in probable close contact with the teacher that tested positive. Anyone in probable close contact will be asked to self quarantine for 14 days and this information has been forwarded to the department of health for further monitoring. Our district notified all students and parents that needed to self quarantine today. Therefore, if you were not notified your child is encouraged to maintain their normal routine at home and school. I appreciate the cooperation and understanding of everyone involved and thank you for your support as we take the necessary precautions to keep our staff and students safe on our campus.

Fountain Lake Fans, The Arkansas HS Athletic Directors held a Zoom Meeting today and many topics were discussed concerning athletics in Arkansas. At this time the AAA has no new news concerning reopening/changing from Phase 1. All the AAA directives come from the Governor’s office and the Department of Health. The Arkansas Activities Association has stated they still plan to have athletics in the fall. They have been very cautious in saying that though that is the plan, things and circumstances are very fluid and can change overnight. The Cobra Athletic programs will continue to monitor all avenues of information from the AAA, the Department of Health, the CDC and the Governor’s office. We will continue with the safety protocols set in Phase 1. I sincerely wish there was more to announce but that is not the case today. Please be patient and do what you can to help limit the spread of the virus.
Good Evening, We have had our first test positive for COVID-19 with a student in our school district.

Our district notified all students and parents that needed to self quarantine tonight. Therefore, if you were not notified your child is encouraged to maintain their normal routine at home and school. Facility cleaning protocol will take place to maintain a safe environment for all students and staff. I appreciate the cooperation and understanding of everyone involved and thank you for your support as we take the necessary precautions to keep our staff and students safe on our campus. Athletic physicals tomorrow Thursday, July 23, 2020 will continue as planned for all students not in self quarantine.
