Dear Parents and Patrons,
It is with sadness we report that USD 415 and Hiawatha Elementary School lost a valued family member today. Janice Kneisley, first and second grade teacher, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. Mrs. Kneisley taught special education and was a true teacher to the end. Janice’s dedication and positive influence will be deeply missed.
USD 415 and H.E.S. faculty are committed to ensuring our students and staff have needed support during this difficult time. Counselors, social workers and other personnel will be present for the days ahead to assist students and staff with their emotional needs.
Please keep Mrs. Kneisley’s family, friends, and colleagues in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you.
Lonnie Moser, Superintendent
