Announcement Effective 4/6/2021: In response to Governor Asa Hutchinson's announcement on Tuesday, March 30, 2021, the Dierks School District will lift the mandate that requires students and staff to wear a mask. Although masks will no longer be required, students and staff may opt to continue wearing them for their own personal safety. We will continue following existing safety and sanitation practices already in place, such as encouraging hand washing, providing hand sanitizer in our buildings, emphasizing social distancing, and all other Arkansas Health Department guidelines.

Until formal board action has been taken as required by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Dierks School District will continue following the same COVID-19 guidelines, including wearing of masks and social distancing.
