MESSAGE TO FAMILIES
Today, March 17, 2020 Governor Laura Kelly announced all school facilities will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. This will place tremendous hardship on our families and staff, and impact the social and emotional well-being of our students.
We have been working on several plans which include how we can meet the continuous learning needs of our students as well as provide meals for our students.
The initial plan is to officially resume continuous learning methods on March 30th.
Our staff and board of education will also be working on other critical issues, such as what this means for our seniors, how this will affect next school year and what impact this will have on our employees. We will provide updates on these issues as soon as the information is available.
We are committed to working together as a community to support one another throughout these unprecedented times, and communication will remain a top priority. We will provide updates through our website, Twitter, Facebook, and email.
As a reminder, this school closure is in response to the current public health crisis. The focus should remain on preventing the spread of the coronavirus, or COVID-19 as it is also referred to.
Please be mindful of the following:
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing (cough/sneeze into your sleeve or a tissue).
Please keep sick children at home.
Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.

We will continue to process this information and work to find the best ways to serve our students. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
