Our school COVID numbers have decreased but our ACHI color for residential cases has only moved down from the purple zone to the red zone. We will still be under a mask mandate for the week of September 20-24.

Integration of the Arts into our curriculum is GREAT for our students! Who says Math can't be fun and creative? Fourth grade students used Art to practice and understand prime numbers. Students studied the morphology of the word prime which also extended to Art concepts of primary colors! Our students are learning deeply in these lessons. We are proud of them!

At the September board meeting held on Thursday, September 9, 2021 the board made an amendment to the current mask mandate policy. The plan is to have the Administration look at the weekly ACHI report posted (usually on Thursday) on achi.net/covid19 and see what color zone the district is for the week. If the color is purple (highest risk) or red (high risk) the mandate will be in place for students and staff/faculty for the following week. If the color is orange (moderate risk), yellow (low risk), light green (lowest risk), or dark green (no risk) the district will highly recommend the mask but it will not be mandated. However, if the actual school data does not correlate with the residential data for the week, the mandate will stay in place. For example, if the color for our residents is orange but the school data shows that we are having a spike in cases then we will still have the mandate in place for the school. Also, the mandate will automatically go into place for the following week if the color goes back to purple or red. We will be sending out a notification on Friday afternoon of each week that will inform parents of the mask determination for the following week. The daily dashboard of COVID cases within the school as well as the ACHI map for the week is posted under COVID Weekly Report on the front page of the district website. Please contact your child’s building if you have any questions. The district color for the week is purple so for the week of September 13-17 we are still under a mask mandate.

The millage election is set for Tuesday, September 14, 2021 in the auditorium. Long Post but provides important information. Information regarding the millage: 1) Value of a mil - 1/1000 of the assessed value of the district $55,000,000 or about $55,000 while Searcy for example is $585,000,000 or about $585,000. 2) Current millage rate is 38.1 but was voted in 2003 to be 39.3 and has been rolled back twice due to gas and oil boom to the current rate. 3) Asking for a 2.0 increase to 40.1 which is 0.8 above what was originally approved by voters. 4) Needs - Overcrowding - We are currently at 80 preK students. We currently have 808 in K-12 which is a growth of over 80 students in the past 4 years. We have graduated classes of under 50 and have incoming kindergarten classes of over 70 the past 3 years. 5) Safety - We will be able to have all K-4 in an enclosed building and 5-12 in an enclosed building with keypad entries to all buildings. We also will be able to put portable tornado shelters within the proposed new building. 6) Capital Improvements a) 24,000 sq. ft classroom space connecting middle school and high school buildings. b) 8,000 sq. ft addition to the kitchen/cafeteria. c) Portable water treatment facility for sewage. d) Upgrades to athletic complexes. - Soccer field, track, softball field, and upgrade to baseball field. e) Parking lot expansion at the high school. 7) Cost of projects - Between $10-12M. 8) Revenue - Building fund that has been saved $3.6M. State partnership money $3M (this goes away if millage fails). Millage increase will generate $5.8M. 9) Cost to taxpayers - Example of $100,000 property would increase taxes $40 for the year which is $3.33 per month or $0.11 per day. Please call the administration office at 501-729-3992 if you have questions.
