Here are the AMI updates as of today 3/30/2020.
AMI Instruction and Work
As everyone is aware, schools throughout Arkansas have been ordered to remain closed, and to continue to engage students at home through the AMI process until Monday, April 20th.
Most students should have received enough materials to continue working this week (March 30 through April 3rd), and/or have been in contact with their teachers online to receive additional assignments.
For students who are working online, they should have already been contacted by their teachers with additional assignments.
For students who are working on paper packets, additional AMI Materials will be available for pick up on Thursday and Friday, April 2nd-3rd from 1pm to 3pm.
For the safety of all involved, these materials will be provided to parents outside, in front of the buildings. Please drive through the car rider pick up line in front of your child’s school, and let staff members know the grade(s) and name(s) of your child(ren).
Please do not attempt to return any paper packets or other documents to the school. Hold on to all completed assignments, and follow the teachers’ directions for submission of work.
If you are unable to pick up your child’s work on Thursday and Friday, April 2nd-3rd from 1pm to 3pm, please call your child’s school for alternative arrangements to be made.
Remember to stay in touch!
Although our doors are closed for now, students and parents are encouraged to contact their teachers if they need help or have questions about the AMI work. Students (and/or parents of our younger students) should expect communication at least twice a week from their teacher throughout the AMI time.
The most efficient way to communicate with the teacher is by sending an email. The staff directory, including email addresses, can be found at:
Students and parents are also encouraged to call the school!
Even with the buildings closed, the phone line for each campus will be forwarded to school administration during regular school hours, and they will be happy to get you in touch with the teacher(s) you need to talk to if you have questions about the AMI work, or any other school related issues.

Centerpoint School District Plan for Ensuring SFA Integrity During the COVID19 Crisis
The Centerpoint School District will maintain an accountable non-congregate meal distribution program during COVID-19-related operations by publicizing the following information on the website, social media, and on site:
In accordance with the Arkansas Department of Education division Child Nutrition, please note that USDA provided meals are available to be distributed only to parents or guardians of eligible children (age 18 and under), and that duplicate meals are not allowed to be distributed to any child.
Due to the current events surrounding the COVID-19 virus, there will be no classes in the Centerpoint School District, with classes currently scheduled to resume April 20th.
At a press conference on Sunday afternoon, Governor Hutchinson and ADE Secretary Key announced a mandatory statewide closing of schools beginning Tuesday, March 17th, with an option for schools to be open or closed on Monday, 3/16.
This past Friday, the teachers and staff of the Centerpoint School District prepared AMI packets of work for students in preparation for this possibility.
Students will be required to submit the completed AMI work assigned for the days missed when we return from spring break.
For any student who did not receive an AMI packet from his or her teachers, they may be picked up at your child’s principal’s office tomorrow, March 16th, from 11:00am until 2:00pm.
Again, There will be no classes Monday through Thursday, March 16th-19th, in the Centerpoint School District.
We will be monitoring the COVID-19 situation throughout spring break, and will provide further guidance on Thursday, March 26th about resuming classes after the break. This information will be provided on the district website, social media sites, and district’s automated call system.
Thank you for your patience and support.
