Mar 28 - Letter to Students, Staff, and Parents

To Staff, Students and Parents


Governor Kelly today issued a stay at home order for the State of Kansas from Monday March 30th until April 19th. With the guidance from State Board of Education, KSDE, KASB and KNEA this order does not affect the current operations that the School District is currently doing. This is because our School District is listed as an essential service. The staff will continue to provide lunches, clean the school buildings and continue the planning for our continuous learning. We will adhere to the guidelines of less than 10 people at least 6 feet apart.

This week our Continuous Learning Plan will be completed and approved by the Board of Education. We will submit a waiver to the Kansas State Board of Education. Teachers will be in contact with all students about details of their continuous learning. The information for each student’s continuous learning will be released each Monday starting April 6th and continue through May 15th.

It is important that everyone support the continuous learning process so each student will be successful this year and be ready to be successful next year.

We are here to support every student and parent during this process. Please contact any staff member if you have questions or a need that we can help you with.


Thank you for your support!

Bill Lowry, Supt.
