On August 12, 2021, the Searcy School District board of directors passed a resolution authorizing the superintendent to “ implement common-sense public health precautions, including a requirement that all persons present on school campuses or in school vehicles or buses, including staff, students, visitors, and others, wear masks or other appropriate face coverings. The resolution went on “to authorize the superintendent to continue or rescind any public health precautions implemented as necessary to comply with any and all Governor’s Emergency Health Declarations.”
While the governor’s health emergency declaration has not been extended, our state and our community are still in the midst of a pandemic that threatens the health and safety of our students and staff. At this time our district is still requiring ALL students, staff, and visitors to wear face coverings while on our campuses or in SPSD vehicles. Our goals are twofold 1.) To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and 2.) to limit the amount of school missed as a result of quarantine. The superintendent and our board continue to closely monitor the data around this decision. We appreciate the cooperation and input from all our patrons, and we always welcome your thoughts on this or any matter. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
