Our operations plan serves as a guide for keeping our school community safe. Our classrooms will be open for in-person (face-to-face) instruction. Online learning will only be available on an individual basis for quarantine or medical necessity. School principals must approve online learning requests.
If you have questions and/or concerns, please call the District Office at 620-371-1000.
Masks will be optional for all students and staff. Sanitizing stations will be available in high traffic areas.
