Bryant Public Schools

Parents: Thank you for your help with a great first week. We appreciate your patience as we start a school year that is very different from any we have had in the past.

We want to remind parents to call the District Point of Contact (POC), 501-414-6647, to report a positive COVID-19 case with your student or within your family. Calls should also be made if your child has been identified as a close contact with a positive case outside of school (church, family members, gyms, etc.). It is also important that if a parent tests positive, the children who live in the home with them are quarantined.

Please call the POC even if you are unsure if you should. It is always better to be cautious in situations where the safety of others is concerned.

We appreciate your help in keeping our Hornet family healthy.

On July 9, 2020, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced that the start date for the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year would be moved to the week of August 24, 2020 instead of August 13, 2020. The State of Arkansas did not waive the requirement that schools must be open for instruction for 178 days during a school year. This announcement resulted in the need for Bryant Public Schools to amend our previously-approved school calendar, changing the start date and adding seven additional instructional days.

Attached is the revised calendar for the 2020-21 school year. We look forward to welcoming our Hornets back to school on August 24!

2020-21 School Calendar:


Bryant Public Schools

On July 23, the Bryant School Board passed a resolution to require face coverings/masks for ALL students—Pre-K through 12th grade—when social distancing is not possible or practical, including school buses. (For more information,

We know this new requirement may affect some of our parents’ decisions to choose Blended (Onsite) or Virtual (Online) learning this fall. With that in mind, we are providing one LAST opportunity for parents to alter their decision.

The ONLY parents who need to complete this new form are:
• Parents who want to CHANGE from Blended (Onsite) or Virtual (Online) learning.
• Parents who DID NOT complete an earlier survey and who want to select their student’s learning environment for Fall 2020.

Final decisions MUST be made by Monday, July 27 at midnight. Complete one survey per student.


We thank you for your support, patience and flexibility. Working together, we will be learning ready on August 24!

In late June, a survey was sent asking parents to choose between Blended (Onsite) and Virtual (Online) learning. The survey closed on July 5.

With the recent decision by Gov. Hutchinson to push back the start of school until August 24 and the rise in COVID-19 positive cases, many parents have inquired about changing their student's learning option to Virtual for this fall.

This survey allows parents the option to enroll their student in Virtual (Online) learning for the fall semester.

The ONLY parents who need to complete this survey are:
* Parents who want to CHANGE from Blended (Onsite) to Virtual (Online) learning.
* Parents who DID NOT complete the June survey and want to sign up for Virtual (Online) learning.

FILL OUT ONE SURVEY PER STUDENT. (If you have three students, you will need to complete the survey three times, one for each child.) The survey is open from July 13-19. Deadline is SUNDAY, JULY 19 at midnight.

We have created a Frequently Asked Questions document which provides additional information.

Late last week Governor Hutchinson announced that public schools in Arkansas WILL reopen for onsite instruction in August. Bryant Public Schools has been working to create education plans that provide flexibility for families while still ensuring a strong academic focus.

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in an unexpected change to education. When schools closed in March, learning continued but was focused on review of content per the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Moving forward, online learning will be much more comprehensive than online learning last spring.

In order to provide your child with a premier education, we must provide a strong academic setting that ensures student learning, whether face-to-face or technology-based. Grade-level standards or higher will continue to be taught, regardless of the COVID-19 circumstances. We must also assess (test) students to identify knowledge and learning gaps and put supports in place for those needing help.

The district is preparing to offer two options for students and parents. Curriculum, instruction, and testing will be delivered multiple ways to ensure learning among all students. These options will provide flexibility for families to choose a learning environment that best fits their needs.

Instructional options include:

Students will go to school buildings to learn in a setting which follows Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) guidelines. (Class size, lunch, and changing classes could be impacted due to social distancing requirements.)

The traditional classroom will become a blended learning classroom which allows students to continue learning grade level or content standards through face-to-face instruction and technology-based approaches. Both students and teachers will stay prepared to move to online learning in case of ADH mandates.

All instruction will be online; no in person or on campus instruction. Students will learn remotely full time. STUDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO BE ONSITE FOR STATE MANDATED ASSESSMENTS. Families who choose this option should have home internet available.

All students (K-12) will be expected to participate daily. Students will follow all policies, handbooks, and procedures including attendance, assignments and behavior. Students registered in virtual learning may also participate in extracurricular activities, following the guidelines of their respective activity as issued by the coach and the Arkansas Activities Association. Transportation will be provided by the parent.

If this option is selected, students must remain a virtual learner through the end of the semester. If a student chooses to return to onsite instruction, he/she will be assigned to their zoned school (if space is available).

We have created a Frequently Asked Questions document which provides additional information. FAQ English:;
FAQ Spanish

On Monday, June 22, parents will be asked by survey to select either Blended Learning (Onsite) or Virtual Learning (Online) for each student. It is vital that we receive this information by the July 5 deadline.

While learning will look different, our commitment to providing the best education possible is unwavering. Thank you for being part of Bryant Schools!
