Greetings Mize Families!
Thanks to all who attended our Costume Parade! It was a great day with many fun costumes and we are glad to have had so many of our family members join us. It is always wonderful to see the excitement on all of the students’ faces as they parade through the building in anticipation of their class parties and all of the excitement that the evening has in store. Thank you for sharing in these moments with us!
Car Loop Courtesy
As a gentle reminder, when facing north, on Mize Road, please refrain from going around the line of cars to enter the parking lot. Those in line are waiting for both the front and back car loop lines. In going around the line of cars, it not only creates a hazard, but keeps those who are in line from advancing. Please show courtesy and kindness, while waiting your turn during this process.
We want to ensure that all remain safe, as we attempt to expedite our car loop, as quickly as possible. Thank you so much for your assistance and understanding with this process. Stay warm and wishing you all a fabulous week!

The State of Kansas and The Johnson County Health Department has changed the exclusion policy for Influenza!!
The seven day exclusion policy for influenza (flu) has changed from seven days to five days. Students and staff who are diagnosed with the flu will be excluded for five days, starting with the first day of symptoms. For example, if a staff member feels ill on Sunday and goes to the doctor and is diagnosed with flu on Wednesday, the five day exclusion starts on Sunday.
Students and staff must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication to bring down the temperature. If a staff member/student has followed the five day exclusion, but still has a fever on day six, the staff member/student must still be excluded until fever free with medication.

Help Us Help a Vet
War Horses for Veterans is a Kansas City-based non-profit program that brings combat veterans from across the country together in a safe, peaceful and non-judgmental environment. They use a combination of learning to work a horse, creating new networks and Equus/Life coaching to help each veteran with their own personal growth. There is no cost to the veteran. Services run about $50 per veteran. In honor of Veterans Day, the students and staff at Mize would like to see how many veterans we could help by collecting monetary donations through Friday, November 8. If you would like to help in any amount, please send in cash or check (made out to War Horses for Veterans) put in an envelope and labeled War Horses for Veterans. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Souders (art teacher) at email@example.com.
