AMI Days Information

Beebe School District has been approved for Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI Days) for the 2019-2020 school year. Act 862 allows school districts and open-enrollment public charter schools to develop a plan for alternative methods of instruction to be used on days when the district must be closed due to exceptional or emergency circumstances. Beebe Schools may use up to five (5) days during the 2019-2020 school year. One detail to note is that we may only use 3 consecutive days during one week. In the event more than 3 days are needed in a week, the additional days will be considered make-up days. Please be on the look-out for AMI packets to be sent home with your child within the next few weeks. If you have additional questions, please contact your child's school for additional information. Frequently Asked Questions and Answers can be found below or at the following link: AMI Days Frequently Asked Questions

It's National Farm to School Month!

Over the past decade, the farm to school movement has exploded across the United States, reaching millions of students in all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and U.S. Territories. From school gardens and farm field trips to local food on cafeteria trays, farm to school practices help children learn about where food comes from and make healthier choices while also creating new markets for local and regional farmers!
