IMPORTANT INFORMATION for Friday's HOMECOMING and FOOTBALL GAME
In order to meet the Arkansas Department of Health capacity requirements for large outdoor venues, the following timing and protocols will be in place for Friday night's homecoming ceremony and football game that follows:
The homecoming ceremony will be held separately from the game, beginning at 5:30pm.
There will be no charge for attending homecoming.
At the conclusion of the ceremony all patrons must exit the stadium immediately while the restrooms and bleachers are disinfected.
Those who wish to see the game will re-enter through the ticket gate beginning at 6:15pm.
Tickets to Friday night's game will be LIMITED to 400* home side tickets. We will be live streaming the game at no charge- so we encourage folks to watch from home!
Tickets will be PRE-SOLD to the general public beginning at 1pm on Wednesday, October 7th on a first come-first serve basis in the CHS office.
Tickets are $5.00. Centerpoint students may still attend for free, but must obtain a ticket to do so. Reminder: Students in 6th grade and below may only attend the game if accompanied by a parent. Cheerleaders, band members, and the homecoming court are not counted in the capacity limit, and will not need to obtain tickets.
We will announce on our district Facebook page on Friday afternoon if all tickets have been sold, or if any tickets will be available at the gate.
* Please note: A ticket to the game does not guarantee a seat in the bleachers, but includes the designated areas along the fence where fans can stand or place their lawn chairs as well. We are including these sections to allow the maximum number of attendees possible while still meeting the ADH guidelines. We ask that our able-bodied fans consider making room for those who may be more in need of seating in the bleachers.

COVID Infections by School District community
On Thursday of this week, in the governor's daily press conference, he and Education Secretary Key released a new data set from the Department of Health and ACHI that now track new COVID infections by school district community.
Important note: This does NOT refer to the number of cases in the buildings among students and staff, but rather the number of cases throughout the community within our district's geographic boundaries.
If you look on their graph (link below), it shows that our district’s community has one of the higher rates per capita (not raw numbers of people) of new infections within school district communities in the state at the moment.
While this definitely should be of concern to all of us work work and live in this community, it is important to understand the formula they use to level the statistical playing field is factored on the number 10,000.
They list our infection rate at 86, out of 10,000 community members. The actual number of citizens in our school district is around 5,000. So the real number of individuals who are known to be newly positive is closer to 43.
Either way, the rate of new infections is one of the top in the state per capita right now in terms of school districts, and we are going to need to be extra diligent in considering this data as we prepared to bring students back on campus. Below is the link to the ACHI website where you may look at the data.
In the last few days I've had the opportunity to view and discuss the plans many of the other districts have in place at this point.
I'm happy to share that our plan seems to be one of the more conservative, in terms of safety, that I have come across. In fact, many of the recommendations that the DESE gives districts that are entering the critical phase of positive cases are similar to what we already have in place just to start school.
That does not mean we are going to let down our guard or fail to pay critical attention to what's going on around our community. We will move quickly and decisively to keep our kids, staff, and community as safe as possible.

In response to COVID-19 public health emergency, a benefit program called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) has been developed for States to implement in assisting families that were receiving free or reduced lunches from their school. The program was designed to help replace the cost of meals incurred by families as a result of the State eliminating public school gathering.
What is P-EBT?
How will P-EBT be paid? Amount to be paid?
When will P-EBT be issued?
Addresses may not be up to date for students that will be receiving the P-EBT card due to schools closing in March. Guidance below is for Parents to update their address if needed.
Note: Parents that do not receive SNAP and would like to verify if their address is correct should contact (call or email) their child’s school district to determine if the school has the current address.
Working with families and community members, the Centerpoint School District engages all students in a safe and nurturing environment with quality educational experiences and high academic standards to perform to their highest potential so they will become successful, productive, and responsible members of society.
