Sorry folks we are running out of daylight at regionals in Ottawa due to long ball games. Boys will play Lyndon at 11:00am tomorrow at the Ottawa University ball fields. If you paid for admission today, you won’t be charged tomorrow. We apologize for the inconvenience.
SCHEDULE CHANGE: Due to wet field conditions, tomorrow's HS Regional Softball game has been moved to the Paola HS Softball Complex. The opening round game against Marmaton Valley will now be played at 4:30pm. Be advised that parking may be an issue as the elementary school nearby is being dismissed. Spectators are encouraged to arrive early to avoid congestion. Bleacher seating will be limited, so spectators would be best served to bring lawn chairs.
SCHEDULE CHANGE: Due to wet field conditions and the threat of more rainfall, today's HS Regional Baseball games against Lyndon have been moved to the Ottawa University Sports Complex. Additionally, game times have been moved forward at least an hour, setting an approximate 5pm start. However, the full game schedule is now a rolling start, with games beginning 30 minutes after the conclusion of the previously scheduled game. Therefore, the game may start earlier than 5pm. Please plan accordingly!
A BIG congratulations to these wonderful ladies upon their retirement from USD 456! Thank you Brenda Snyder, Doris Wolfe, and Barb Roberts for your years of service!

8th Grade Promotion and High School Graduation is this Saturday! Due to the potential for rain and the setup required, ceremonies initially planned for outside, will now be in the gym. Although the venue has changed, there will not be spectator restrictions, but we do ask that all spectators wear masks while indoors so that promotees/graduates can participate unmasked. We can't wait to celebrate our students!
