Mask Requirement - January 10, 2022 Update

Fort Smith Public Schools Board of Education voted 4 to 2 to reinstate a mask requirement for Fort Smith Public Schools students and staff for 30 days or until the Arkansas Center for Health Improvement (ACHI) falls below 50 cases per 10,000 community cases within the District. The mask requirement includes staff, students and visitors in all school buildings, buses and property for the time specified. The Board’s resolution gives the superintendent the authority to end the mask requirement when the infection rate falls below 50 per 10,000 or into the range designated by the color orange.
