Forrest City School District
AMI Packets 2019-2020
Dear FCSD Families,
This year the Forrest City School District was approved by the state to provide alternative home learning activities for up to five (5) days. The alternative home learning activities will allow students to continue their instruction when school is closed.
Districts that have an Arkansas Department of Education approved plan in place to provide alternative home learning will not have to make up days (up to five) during which school is closed. The Forrest City School District has constructed a two-part plan that consists of an online or offline option for alternative home learning in case of inclement weather or other emergencies. By providing both an online and offline option, all students are provided instructional materials to use in the event that school is closed. Your school will inform you regarding which method you will be using. Please review the two methods below:
*Online Option (Requires Internet) - On a day when school is closed, the student will log in to either the online learning platform, Google classroom which is accessed by students logging into their email and review/complete the instructional activities for the day posted by the teacher.
Offline Option (No Internet Required) - On a day when school is closed, the student will complete one day’s worth of instructional materials (for each day the student is out) as outlined in the learning activities packet sent home by the school. The packet may contain multiple days of work with each day designated on the material. All work is due within five (5) days of returning to school.

Remember, school closing information is posted to the Forrest City School District website and social media and shared through local and regional news outlets. A district wide SchoolCast call will also be made to notify parents and staff of a school closing.
* Note - if your Internet goes down, you will have to use the offline option. If you have questions, please contact your child’s school.
