Cabot Panther Students, Parents/Guardians, Teachers, and Staff,

Cabot Public Schools is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for all of our students. We understand parents have many questions regarding the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. This correspondence is to provide you with as much information as we can at this time to help alleviate some of your concerns.

Cabot Public Schools will follow the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) guidelines and the “Arkansas Ready for Learning” plan issued by the Arkansas Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) for reopening in the fall.  We have also established multiple working committees comprised of administrators, staff, teachers, students, parents, and community leaders to help develop reopening plans based on guidance from public health officials and state agencies.

The district will offer three learning options for the 2020-2021 school year. Traditional (In-Classroom Five Days a Week) Blending Learning, Cabot Panther Digital Academy (All Online), and our Conversion Charter School the Academic Center of Excellence (ACE and ACE North).

Even though classes may look different this fall, please know Cabot Public Schools is working to create the safest educational environment possible. We will continue to work with the ADH and DESE to ensure the district is “Ready for Learning.” 

Later this summer, as state directives for the fall become clearer and our plans are further developed, we will share more information with our Panther families. In the meantime, this document will continue to be updated with the latest information and can be found on our district website in the yellow announcement box titled: Roadmap to Reopening.

While we continue to work through the details, we hope the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section below will address some of your concerns. If you have any questions that are not answered here, please feel free to email: If you would like someone to call you back, please include your name, your student’s name, and your phone number in the email and a district employee will contact you as soon as possible to help answer your questions. 

Again, thank you for your continued patience and support as we work together to navigate this new educational roadmap.
