Governor Hutchinson has given schools the opportunity to open weight rooms and other facilities to start individual training on June 1. Starting June 8, we will begin opening some of our training for specific programs. The Arkansas Department of Health and the Arkansas Activities Association have issued guidelines and procedures for our athletic staff to follow during these summer workouts. JNPSD understands that some parents may not want their son/daughter returning to workouts at this time, and we understand and respect that decision.  No athlete will be reprimanded for missing voluntary workouts, but we do ask parents to communicate with the child’s coach about his/her absences this summer.


  • Physicals--Jacksonville High School and Jacksonville Middle School offered physicals last year on April 4, 2019, if your child received a physical during that time, that physical will be valid until July 1, 2020.  JNPSD will not provide mass physicals as provided in the previous spring due to social distancing guidelines.  Parents/Guardians may take athletes to their Primary Care Physician (PCP) to get an updated physical.

  • Drop-Off/Pick-Up Location--Your child’s coach will provide guidance in regards to drop-off and pick-up times.  When workouts and training are over, all athletes will need to leave the facility immediately.  

  • Locker Rooms--Athletes will not be allowed to enter the locker rooms.  Athletes will need to come dressed and ready for workouts.

  • Face Coverings--Athletes will be expected to wear face coverings when not competing in physical activities. Coaches will wear face covering during indoor activities..  

  • Water Bottles--Athletes will be responsible for bringing their own water bottle.  Each bottle should be labeled and full on arrival.  Water fountains will be off limits during Phase 1 of School Sponsored Team Sports. 


  • Each sport will follow state, district, and individual sport guidelines and protocols during Phase 1.
