Notice to Parents, Guardians,Staff and Community Members of USD 462 Schools:
USD 462 will be closed the week of March 16-20th. This will include all spring sports practices and ALL extracurricular activities, events, and fundraisers. Please check back for updates as we will be posting new and more detailed information as it becomes available.
This is in response to guidance we have received from the Commissioner of Education.
From the Kansas State Department of Education:
As of Sunday, March 15, Kansas Education Commissioner Dr. Randy Watson strongly recommends that those schools currently coming off of spring break, suspend operations for the week of March 16-20. All schools scheduled for spring break the week of March 16-20 will continue as planned. For schools who have spring break later in time, Commissioner Watson is strongly recommending they also close schools for the period of March 16-20.
Closing all schools during this same period of time provides Kansas officials the time needed to finalize a comprehensive plan for how to address COVID-19.
It is critical that we all follow a coordinated response to this situation.
