Tuesday, March 9th is the District ACT testing date for 11th-grade students. March 9th will be a remote learning day for sophomore and senior students and they will not have to be on-campus that day.
Due to COVID-19, we will be limiting testing sessions to ten (10) 11th-grade students per testing room to allow for physical distancing. Juniors will be allowed to check out after the test is finished if they have parent/guardian permission on file to do so. Busses will run at the normal time and if a student does not check-out, then they will follow their normal afternoon schedule.
Recently, the Springdale High School Medical Academy was privileged to have Dr.Stephanie Pereirafrom the Emergency Department at Washington Regional Medical Center come and speak during our monthly meeting. Dr. Pereira came to talk about what it was like to work in emergency medicine, fielding student questions about topics ranging from tough medical cases to balancing family life as well as a medical career. She spoke to the point about being a successful woman in medicine, and what it took to get her education to be able to focus on her passion for emergency medicine. The students were enthralled by her discussion and the academy definitely wants to get her back for more! Building a community of medical professional partnerships is continuing even in the midst of a pandemic, and we are grateful to Dr. Pereira for her time with our students.
