Updated COVID-19 Communication & Dashboard
August 18, 2021
Cabot Public Schools is committed to ensuring not only the safety of our students and staff, but transparency in all COVID-19 communication to our stakeholders. Here is a look at our updated process.
Updated COVID-19 Communication Process
According to the Arkansas Department of Education, your student WILL NOT need to quarantine since the positive individual and your student were wearing face coverings.
However, in order for parents to be vigilant in monitoring their student for any symptoms, the district believes it is important to inform parents/guardians if their student is considered a probable close contact.
This will come in the form of an automated email at the end of the day. If symptoms develop, your student should stay home from school, isolate immediately, and get tested for COVID-19. Otherwise, your student can continue to attend school as normal.
Please remember, it is imperative that we have your correct phone numbers and email address in our system.

To provide our parents and patrons with an understanding of our contact tracing process, we have created a COVID-19 Dashboard that will be updated daily in regards to positive cases in the district, schools they are located, and the number of individuals who would have had to quarantine if not for the 30 Day Face Covering Policy.
The dashboard is located on the front page of our district website, www.cabotschools.org. Click on the banner and "Read More." It can also be found in the COVID-19 Information section.
Please understand that there will be positive cases reported in the district where a student/staff member has not been at school and there are no probable close contacts. These cases will not be counted in the dashboard. Neither will cases where a probable close contact is exposed OUTSIDE of school.
