Reminders from your School Nurses: Please keep your student home if he/she is ill with two or more symptoms of COVID-19 (headache, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, cough, short of breath, extreme fatigue, chills/shivering/shaking/sweating, new loss of smell/taste, or fever). This is for the health and safety of all students and staff and to help us be in school for as long as we can. We do realize allergy and harvest seasons are upon us and will do our best, however a doctor’s note may be required as proof of alternate diagnosis. If your student is sent home with two or more symptoms, they are not tested for COVID, and do not have an alternate diagnosis (influenza, strep throat, etc.), the student must remain out of school and all activities for ten days from symptom onset. These are the guidelines the state of Kansas has set forth for schools to follow as we return to in-person learning. Thank you for your cooperation, Erin Winger and Whitney McCauley

First graders spent the week exploring what it takes to get the wheat from the farm to the table. They had a wonderful trunk from the Kansas Historical Society to teach them all about growing wheat and what happens when it is sold from the farmer to the elevator, to the mill, and so forth. The students also traveled to John Deere, in Hiawatha and they were shown the many different types of implements it takes to get the crop in the ground and also what it takes to harvest it.The first grade teachers would like to thank all individuals who helped make this week a success!
Mr. Sumps 7th grade students are raising money for their trip to Denver in June 2021. One of the students told the group that if they raised the entire amount in October, he'd shave his head.

The hair will be going to Locks of Love this next week.
