We would like to clear up some misinformation that may be going around. As a district, it is not our intention to close schools. However, as cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, we would be doing your students a disservice if we were not ready for the possibility of having to shift to remote learning. We have asked our teachers to be ready in the case we would have to transition to remote learning. Please know if this happens, it will not be our choice. We are all aware that students learn best in person rather than in a remote situation. This is the same message we have given our teachers since August. We will continue to release information as we have it. As of now, this is all the information we have.
Friday's (10/9) football game with Marmaton Valley has been cancelled due to low numbers on their part. The next home game will be Friday, October 23rd with Cedarvale/Dexter.

Yesterday, the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) cancelled all spring activities and festivals for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The removal of those items from the school calendar DOES NOT imply that events currently remaining on the calendar have not or will not be cancelled. Many events will need to be cancelled and those cancellations come from different sources. We realize that this is a difficult time for everyone. Please be patient as decisions are made by the many organizations and entities involved.
