NOTICE: In accordance to the National Federation of High School Sports and MHSAA, the Alcorn Central Archery season has been suspended until further notice.
We have spent the last several days learning about the coronavirus and its impact. For Alcorn County Schools, that means understanding how it affects our students and employees and then making the necessary adjustments to our schools. We have one simple objective that guides us: keeping our students and employees safe. This has been at the center of our conversations. With that in mind, we are making some adjustments for preventive measures. We are ramping up cleaning services at our schools and are adding additional hand sanitizer as well as sanitizing wipes. We are closely following the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) guidelines and recommendations on the steps we can take to help prevent the spread of the virus. We would like to stress to our students and employees the importance of washing hands and staying home if they feel sick.
