Benton Public Schools will be closed from December 21st - to January 3rd for Christmas Break.
Due to the LEARNS Act, we can no longer count AMI (Alternative Methods of Instruction) days toward the state-required 178 student instruction days. Therefore, if school is canceled due to a weather event, the day(s) will be added to the end of the school year. Decisions regarding school closings will most likely be made the day of.
The Benton School District will be closed November 20-24 for Thanksgiving Break. We look forward to seeing our Panthers on Monday, November 27th.
