February is upon us!
As the calendar turned over to February, I began looking at the remainder of the semester. Although we still have three months on the calendar, the number of days are few when you consider the many breaks in the spring semester. Students have one day off in February, 5 days off in March and three days off in April. Therefore, the second semester will be broken up quite a bit for students which means that they need to make every day count.
The cold and flu season has certainly taken its toll on many of our students and staff members. We have seen several out with flu like symptoms over the past few weeks. I am hoping for an early end to the flu season, but that never seems to pan out for us here. On the positive side, we have not seen the measles like much of the country is seeing. Hopefully the Kansas borders will not allow it in!!
Having gone through the first four weeks of the second semester - just a reminder that we have 5 weeks remaining in the third nine weeks of the year which will end on March 6th. Please continue to push your student to do their best so that those third nine week's grades will look good.
As always - in the middle of winter in Kansas, please be prepared for bad weather. We report our closings on all the local television stations along with many of the radio stations including 101.3 KFDI. We will also use the School Messenger service to send out notifications. Please make sure your child's school office has any updates on phone number changes so that you won't miss any of the calls.
Please continue to support our school district and especially our students. They are truly our greatest asset and certainly our future. It takes all of us to help them make their dreams come true. I honestly do appreciate your support for our kids!

**Past due fees. If your child has a past due amount, we ask that parents try to get these balances paid down. School budgets are just as tight as home budgets and the school simply cannot carry a large amount of debt from year to year.
