We aren't saying "goodbye" but rather "see you around". The SPSD Leadership team met today to wish Mr. Jim Gurchiek well as he embarks on a new educational journey as the Harding Academy superintendent. Thank you, Mr. G, for your love of students and your encouraging spirit!
Regarding Summer Meal Offerings, please see this important information about pickup instructions. *This will be a “drive-through” meal pick-up. We ask that children please ride in the car with an adult for the first meal pick-up. On that first day, the adult driver will be provided with a pass to show for subsequent day meal pick-ups (so that students will not have to be present). Please enter from Sowell Street and drive up in front of the cafeteria entrance to pick up meals, then proceed out to Beebe-Capps.
Don't miss out on free breakfast and lunch this summer! You pick it up "to go" and receive nutritious meals during the month of June. Any child 18 years of age and under qualify for this offer. See all the information here. https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/1283550/Summer_Food_Service_Program_News_Release--2021__1_.pdf

Due to the continued reduction in Covid-19 cases within our schools, Searcy School District Board of Education voted to rescind the mask policy at Searcy Public Schools effective immediately. Searcy School District will continue following the CDC guidelines, and those who are not fully vaccinated are encouraged to continue wearing a mask. Social distancing and sanitation measures will still be practiced. We appreciate the cooperation that has been shown by students, staff, and parents during the current school year and these unusual circumstances. We ask that all continue to take precautions as much as possible to protect the health of our students.
