This year, the district has opted to take advantage of the non-traditional school day waiver provided by the state again. As a district, we felt the days were very successful. For our students this means that instruction can occur on days when school is not in session due to unforeseen circumstances (example: Snow Days). These days will count as attendance days for students and staff if the quality of work matches an instructional day and packets are returned upon returning to school or within the first week. While the Grant we submitted was approved, the Commissioner of Education will assess our work and student participation to actually grant the days as actual work days for teachers and attendance days for students.
Please note that PACKETS are DUE upon returning to school, but to accommodate parents who work, there will be a one week grace period to return completed packets which is noted on each teacher cover page. Each school must report to KDE the percentage of packets returned and so for the majority of you that will be the first day back.
Packets will be sent home on January 25th with students. Please listen carefully to any announcement from Chris Holderman to inform you if it is a day out or if we will have a Non-Traditional day.
Please feel free to contact your child's teacher or the office if you have questions.
