Doug Dorris says White Hall ISD has no significant Covid-19 issues

While some schools in Arkansas, from elementary to colleges and universities are struggling with COVID-19, the White Hall School District is reporting no significant problems.

Appearing on the Oldies 101.3 morning show Thursday, Superintendent Doug Dorris talked about that.

Dorris said the district is taking the temperature of every student, teacher and employee as they walk through the door and if and if there is a fever, that person is immediately sent home.

“They never enter the building,” he said, adding that some students who arrive by car are checked before they ever get out of the car and when buses arrive, “we grab them right there, check their temperature and send them off to breakfast.”
Dorris also talked about the wearing of face masks in the district, particularly in the elementary grades.
