Great Bend USD 428 - News and Highlights

Learning Continues in Great Bend Schools

"New School" calls for new tools to communicate and celebrate the great work happening every day at USD 428. In less than a week, our teachers and staff rose to the challenge of re-imagining classroom instruction and implementing a Continous Learning Plan. Education in this uncharted time is truly a partnership between school and home. There is no substitution for classroom instruction, but as a district, it is inspiring to see the creativity, hard work, and dedication exhibited by our staff. From the meticulous work of the maintenance team, the labor of assembling curb-side meals by our food service team, the time of office staff spent answering countless parent/community questions, to the teachers on the front-line trying to narrow-in the exact tools and standards that will best support our students' learning - YOU are making this work!

Together, we will work to provide for our students' emotional health, education, and wellness, all while trying to protect our community.

I hope you enjoy these highlights from across USD 428. Stay well!
