ATTENDANCE POLICY

Please notify the office at 620-646-5234 if your child will be absent, late, or leaving early. If your child is absent and you have not communicated with the office by 8:30 a.m., expect a check-in call from the school.


Children who arrive at school after 7:55 will be counted tardy. Children arriving after 8:30 or leaving before 3:30 will be counted absent for one-half day.


Kansas requires districts to report children who are not compliant with the compulsory attendance statute. Administration has the right to determine if an absence is justified as excused or unexcused and may require special documentation – such as a medical excuse from a doctor – when student absences become excessive. Excessive absences are reported to SRS or the County Attorney.

School Party Policies

  • Parties will follow the regulations of Covid-19 and the school wellness policy.
  • Parties will be limited to school time with school staff.
  • Pre-packaged items may be sent to school for class parties or birthday treats.
  • Please contact your child's homeroom teacher for more information.

Safety First

Please help us keep our students safe during drop off and pick up times! Enter the school zone from the east, pull in to drop off or pick up, and then exit to the west toward Main Street.

Fall Picture Day

Picture day is September 12th. A picture order form with additional information will be sent home with students closer to picture day.

Garden of Growth

This year students are working together to create a garden outside the office. Each time a student passes an iReady math lesson they get to add a piece to the garden. Right now students are adding leaves to the bare tree. Students added 139 leaves in the month of August, just 10 days of school! We're off to a great start, and we'll keep you posted throughout the year as our garden blooms!
