RE: COVID-19 (Corona Virus) USD 234 District Update
The health and safety of our students, staff, and community are important to our district.
Today, Sunday, March 15, 2020, Dr. Watson, the Kansas Commissioner of Education, has strongly recommended all Kansas school districts be closed March 15 – 20. This recommendation is supported by the Governor of Kansas, state legislators, and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
Since USD 234 is on Spring Break the week of March 15-20 this does not affect our days of attendance for our school district. All buildings will be closed except for essential personnel designated by the district office. There will be no practices or activities allowed during Spring Break.
District Administrators and some personnel will be meeting Wednesday, March 18 to consider any plans regarding the school day and the USD 234 calendar of events based on guidance from the Commissioner of Education and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment if and when our schools could be open. We will share more information as it becomes available.
