Mya and Elly are only two of the many students who got a free grab and go breakfast this morning. Our school received exciting news!!! Beginning today, ALL students enrolled in Searcy Public Schools (whether attending onsite or through Lions Online) will receive breakfast and lunch meals for FREE through December 31, 2020. According to the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), this is due to a special United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) waiver. For any questions, please contact Charlotte Davis, District Child Nutrition Director at email@example.com. #learningtogetherwhereverweare #searcyschools
School is dismissed next Monday, September 7th, for Labor Day. Enjoy this extra time with your family!
We have almost finished two weeks of the new school year!! Our students have shown great attitudes and great effort!!! Students and teachers have created and signed Social Contracts in their classrooms. Our students are doing a great job of following those contracts both inside and outside of the classroom!
Last week, your child's teacher sent out a message with a link through School Status. This link was to a form for an e-book library card from the White County Public Library. The Public Library is partnering with our school to provide our students access to e-books from the public library. If you have not filled out the form, please take a moment to complete it. It is very short. We will be requesting e-book library cards from the public library for only those students who were given parental permission through the form. Thank you!!!
