NOTIFICATION: Due to a heating issue at the elementary school and the potential for older students needing to stay home with elementary students, school district-wide has been CANCELLED for Friday, January 7th, 2022. Late Thursday evening, the boiler for the elementary building was found to not be producing heat and, upon inspection, was determined to have a gas supply issue that will require a fix that is unable to be performed before the start of school. To assist with this last minute change in schedule and to ensure elementary students are not potentially home without older siblings, it was decided to cancel class for the junior high and high school as well. However, high school basketball games will continue as scheduled for Friday evening.
NOTIFICATION: Due to the current snowfall and the road conditions within the district, school has been DELAYED FOR TWO HOURS for Thursday, January 6th, 2022. According to the National Weather Service, snow is expected to continue into the morning hours, further complicating road conditions and making travel less than ideal. When a two-hour delayed start is implemented, classes begin at 10:00am instead of the typical 8:00am. Bus riders will be picked up two hours later than their expected pick-up time. Students who walk, are dropped off, or drive to school are not to arrive at school earlier than 9:45am, as staff are to report by 9:40am. Morning pre-school is cancelled. Breakfast will not be served. School dismissal time will remain on a regular schedule. All afternoon and evening programs will continue as scheduled unless announced otherwise. Be safe and Go Trojans!
The Prom Shop is located in Burlingame and will be open January 14 - 16. If you have any questions please call or text 785-231-7267
USD 456 is making plans to use the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief III funds provided under the federal American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The purpose of ESSER III is to address the impact of the pandemic on students by mitigating learning losses, supporting social-emotional needs, and ensuring safe in-person learning for students. We will submit an application for ESSER III funds to the Kansas Department of Education which must include input from a variety of stakeholders on how best to use these funds. Your input will impact how ESSER III funds are spent across the school district. Please take a few minutes to provide your feedback here: https://forms.gle/k8s1bU5Fwy513HCfA Thank you in advance for your input and participation.
