This message is to our parents from the Searcy Schools Health Services Department. If you have taken your child to be tested for a Covid-19 test and the rapid test is negative, but the doctor sends the test out for a PCR result, please do not let your child return to school until the result of the PCR test is returned. A copy of a negative PCR test result will allow the child to return to school and the days missed will be excused. If the doctor does not determine that a PCR test is needed, please bring a doctor’s excuse or diagnosis for the illness to cover the days missed. Additionally, if your child is experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, please keep your child at home. Thank you for your attention and cooperation.
