CLEAResult, through a free incentive with Entergy Arkansas, has provided Searcy Schools with free energy saving MaxLite Power Strips to be given to staff & students. Each Westside student will be coming home THIS WEEK with a strip in their backpack.... so be on the lookout and remove those! Each teacher chose the day for their class since backpack space is limited some days (and some sent them on Friday with students who were present). Please be sure to send the backpack back to school the following day. A big thanks to CLEAResult, Entergy, and Mr. Graham (our energy-saving specialist for the district) for making this happen!!

Parents~ Our link for Home Access Center to access your student's attendance and grades for grades 2-12 has changed. So it you had it bookmarked, you've probably noticed it did not work over the break while being updated. The new link is http://hac20.esp.k12.ar.us
We are very pleased to announce that the Arkansas Division of Elementary and Secondary Education informed the Searcy School District that the USDA waiver to feed all students for free has been extended until the end of the 2020-2021 school year. All students in the Searcy School District will receive breakfast and lunch at no cost.
We want to commend our students and staff members for continuing to be diligent about wearing masks. Upon our return from Christmas break, Searcy School District will provide an additional cloth mask for all students and staff members. We want to remind our families that cloth masks should be washed twice weekly at a minimum to reduce the spread of Covid-19 or other germs. With the upswing of additional Covid-19 cases, we ask that our families please take precautions during the holiday break, so we can try to limit our number of positive cases within our school district when we return to school. We realize this is a difficult time for all, and we greatly appreciate the support and adherence to the health guidelines.
Countdown to Christmas is on!! Checkout our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/westsideelem) each afternoon for fun pictures of our staff and students!!
CLEAResult, through a free incentive with Entergy Arkansas, provided Searcy Schools with free energy saving lightbulbs to be given to staff & students.

Some parents have asked how they can stay up-to-date on school events and information pertaining to their child. Parents can access our website at https://www.searcyschools.org/o/westside-elementary , follow us on Facebook and set up notifications, make sure the child's teacher has the correct phone number to send School Status texts (and don't opt out), AND parents can download our district app to a mobile phone. Search "Searcy Public Schools" in the AppStore or Google Play. In settings, you can turn notifications ON and choose which building(s) you want to receive notifications from. So if your have kids in multiple buildings, you are covered!
Yay! The sun is back out again today...which means outside recess, fresh air, and a great start to the weekend!!
