Arkansas School Superintendent Dies from Virus

September 29, 2020

ATKINS, Ark. — An Arkansas school district says its top leader has died from the coronavirus.

The Atkins School District says Superintendent Jody Jenkins died Tuesday due to complications from COVID-19. The district is about 50 miles northwest of Little Rock.

Jenkins announced on Sept. 13 that he had tested positive for the virus and had been hospitalized for the past several days.

Arkansas is requiring schools to be open five days a week for in-person instruction, although they can offer virtual or hybrid options along with the five-day option.

The Arkansas per capita coronavirus rate of 194 per 100,000 residents was the seventh highest in the nation, according to latest White House Coronavirus Task Force report.

Arkansas has more than 82,000 cases and 1,329 confirmed deaths.
