Searcy School District would like to inform our parents and patrons about information that was presented to us by the Searcy Police Department. The Little Rock FBI office issued a general awareness statement regarding a report they received that a school shooting would occur in Arkansas on 8/29/19. The reporting party lives in another country, and his/her identity could not be confirmed. The reporting party allegedly received the information while playing an online video game. The threat is not specific to any school in Arkansas, but we at Searcy Public Schools take all such law enforcement announcements seriously and will provide an increased police presence at our campuses. We will continue to monitor the provided information in coordination with local law enforcement and take appropriate security measures.
