Statement from CCSD regarding Covid-19: On August 6, 2021, Pulaski County Circuit Judge Tim Fox issued a temporary injunction against the enforcement of Act 1002. Act 1002 prohibited school boards from adopting a mask policy. Since Act 1002 is currently not enforceable, school boards now have the authority to legally adopt and enforce a mask policy. The entire state of Arkansas is considered to currently have a high transmission rate of COVID-19. Based on the latest guidance from the CDC, DESE, and ADH, the District is strongly encouraging all individuals to wear a mask while in classrooms and on buses. If all individuals are wearing a mask while indoors, then the number of students and staff required to quarantine will be reduced in the event there is a confirmed case of a COVID-19 exposure. This situation is fluid. The District will continue to monitor positive cases, quarantine statuses, and guidance from state agencies while continuing social distancing measures and thorough cleaning as we did in the previous school year. The District may ultimately decide to adopt a mask policy to keep our students and staff in school to continue in-person learning. As we look forward to the excitement of a new school year, we will remain cautious and keep the safety of our students and staff as our top priority.

As the Class of 2021 approaches graduation, most seniors are busy gathering caps and gowns. At Cross County, our seniors have one extra task: a formal Capstone portfolio presentation in front of a panel of teachers and staff! At their Capstone presentation, seniors reflect on their educational journey, are quizzed on essential questions, and prove to the panel (and themselves!) they are ready to graduate high school. This is just one of many ways we prepare our students for life after high school! Wish our seniors (like Jamaille Beale pictured below) luck as they complete their portfolio presentations this week! #Classof2021 #proudTBirds
The High School Lunch Staff served the Seniors their "last meal" and wished the Class of 2021 well today. Their spirit, laughter, and joy will be missed in the cafeteria and throughout the building! #Classof2021 #Seniors #proudTBirds

Mrs. Sanders understands the importance of real-world life skills and that is why she organizes her Family and Consumer Science courses to provide students opportunities to leave her classes with applicable skills to use at home or the workplace. Her classes have something for everyone. Whether she is teaching students how to sew pajamas, make a delicious pan of cinnamon rolls, or how to balance a budget; she wants her students to leave high school better prepared. Students can even obtain a Serve Safe or CPR certification or participate in fun cupcake decorating contests. Did we mention Mrs. Sanders was a recent Teacher of the Month honoree? Want to know more about our curriculum or programs? Give us a call at 870-588-3337. The school choice deadline is May 1.
