School Closing, AMI Work, Meals

Dear Students and Families, 

The Danville School District campuses are closed through April 17 per Governor Hutchinson's directive.

We appreciate the commitment of our students and teachers as we made the switch to learning through AMI work beginning March 17. We will continue to use AMI days once we return from Spring Break week (March 23-27). New AMI work will be available Tuesday, March 31 for the three weeks following Spring Break. An online option will be available for work, as will a printed packet. If you need a printed packet of AMI work or a Chromebook in order to complete work through Google Classroom, you may pick these up at your child's school between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning Tuesday, March 31. Additionally, Arkwest has graciously agreed to provide free internet access to students without internet during this time so that they may continue their learning journeys under these unprecedented circumstances. If you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, contact the district administration office at 479-495-4800 or email Mr. Grant at grantg@dps-littlejohns.net, Anita Harper at harpera@dps-littlejohns.net, or Ron Laster at lasterr@dps-littlejohns.net. 

We want to make sure that every student receives AMI work. Please call or email your child's school office if your child WILL NOT be coming in to pick up a printed packet or a Chromebook beginning Tuesday, March 31 because he/she has the resources needed to work from home in Google Classroom.

  • High School Office: 479-495-4810; balchj@dps-littlejohns.net

Remember that teachers are available during school hours to help students. We encourage students to take advantage of calling, texting, or emailing teachers. Faculty members value the communication and relationships students have with them, and they are ready and willing to help with assignments.

The district will continue to provide food service March 30 through April 17. Service will be available on weekdays between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.  and will include a lunch for the same day and breakfast for the following day. No food service will be provided during the week of Spring Break. A carry-out option will be available at the high school cafeteria. Additionally, bus delivery will be available at the following locations:

  • Intersection of J and K Streets
  • Park Lane Apartments
  • Boyd Street
  • Ranger Baptist Church
  • Dutch Creek Fire Station
  • Marberry Street

As always, if you have questions or concerns, we would love to hear from you. 

Regards,
