Hampton School District Adapts to Changes Due to School Closures

On March 15, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced the closure of all K-12 schools would be extended through April 17 and then re-evaluated based upon the public health conditions.

Build a fun and active environment for them to play, be productive, gaining new skills, and enjoying time with the family learning to play and doing school work / skill building so they still keep learning new things, arts and crafts, reading, exercising, learning to help “cook” simple tasks that involve them in normal tasks, and do their school work at home, communicating with family and friends on the phone or through face time, learn how to play games, and coloring or water painting that you display in the house.

Since no one wants to be sick, we are doing all these thing and learning how to stay well and not get sick or cause someone else to get sick. Explaining words children hear
