Hellstern Middle School Newsletter, Springdale, AR
2020-2021 Issue 16, November 16, 2020
We are taking a week off for Thanksgiving - next edition of Hero Happenings! will be Nov. 30th!
Help raise money for "Shop with a Cop"
We are giving all the money raised to our Springdale Police Department to assist in their "Shop with a Cop" event. Students from each of our schools in Springdale are selected to participate in this Christmas event.
Update on our Numbers
- The district has had 136 positive staff members (4.7%)
- The district has had 293 positive students (1.5%)
- The district has quarantined 2,404 people as being possible close contacts (PCC)
- Of those identified as PCCs, 27 tested positive (1.1%)
All this to say, our numbers have increased but Springdale Schools are still at a small percentage of our overall population. We are continuing to follow all safety precautions. Our increase in numbers mirrors the state's increase.
We showed this during Hero Hour on 11/11/20. Thank you to all the veterans that have served - past or present!
These students are participating in a virtual Thespians festival and competition this weekend!

We also are now offering tutoring on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:15-4:00pm every week. Students must be picked up at 4pm if they choose to stay. If a student is staying for tutoring they can go to the library at the end of the day and we will relocate to room 207 or 407 (depending on the day).
