• Message from Superintendent Dr. Debbie Jones


    This is an unprecedented time globally and here at home. Certainly, we as educators have encountered our share of questions and challenges in light of COVID-19. We created the Bentonville Schools Reopening Task Force to ensure we examine the process of returning to school as carefully as we can. The task force consists of leading medical experts in our community, business leaders, police and key members of the Bentonville Schools staff. 


    Class will look different this fall as we work to create the safest educational environment we can. We don't know every detail just yet, but we created this area on our website to keep you updated. Here you'll find the latest communication from our task force members and state government.


    I would be remiss if I didn't share with you how critical you are in this process. There is a Google form HERE where you can share your input with the task force. More than anything, we need you to commit to being flexible for your child. Your student will mirror your emotions and expectations. When you express confidence, so will those who look up to you.


    This is an unusual time but we will work hard to sort fact from fear and keep you informed every step of the way. There's nothing more important to me than the well-being of your child. 



    Dr. Debbie Jones
