ATTENTION USD #284 FAMILIES: I just wanted to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for all of your patience and dedication to these children! This year has already been nothing short of the wildest roller coaster known to man, and yet this county has stepped up to the plate and hit a home run! It means so much to these kids to be able to carry on with education, relationships, and extracurricular activities, and that just wouldn’t be possible in these trying times without the dedication and patience of you, the parents and caregivers. Your attention to detail and communication has enabled us to keep illness out of our buildings and has allowed for these children and young adults to function as they should. We all know this day and age can be challenging at best, and the day-to-day changes being made at all levels can be just down right frustrating. These challenges haven’t stopped this Bulldog Family from doing their due diligence and making every effort to keep these children safe and healthy. We, as a district and county, must continue to make the necessary choices, allowing our buildings to remain open and functioning for the well-being of ALL individuals, staff included. The key to maintaining this memorable journey is open and honest communication, benefiting the greater good of our community. If you ever have any questions or concerns in regards to the safety and well-being of our young population, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Again, I cannot reiterate enough that communication is key, along with proper hygiene, of course! Keep up the good work Bulldog Family, we truly appreciate your dedication to this generation! Sincerely and Best Wishes, Amber Schlup, LPN USD #284 School Nurse Schlupa@usd284.org

Please contact the School Health Nurse with any questions or concerns.

Dear Parents, Students, and Staff Members, I know many of you are wondering what the Executive Orders mean for Chase County and what our plan for reopening schools will look like. Executive Orders: 20-58 Delay the Start of School: The state Board of Education did not approve this Executive Order. It is up to the local school districts to determine the date school will start. We are having a Special Board Meeting on Wednesday, July 29 to discuss this and other issues. 20-59 Masks, Temperature Checks, Washing Hands, and Physical Distancing: We are working to learn more about the legalities and requirements of this Executive Order. As you know from the news, there are conflicting reports if local counties can override the order. Reopening Plan: The Reopening Plan will be released by the end of the month. Our plan allows for a number of scenarios based on the amount of community spread. These scenarios range from face-to-face instruction to Chase County’s version of remote learning which will be different from what we did in the spring. Students will be held accountable for learning. Also in the plan is “full-time remote learning” for parents and students who feel uncomfortable returning to the school setting for face-to-face instruction due to medical issues or safety concerns. This full-time remote learning experience will require daily teacher and student check-in, daily attendance requirements, completing class assignments, and parent involvement. We will be sending out a questionnaire about this as our plan is released. A group of staff members have been working to formulate the reopening plan. We know that a student learns best in a face-to-face environment with instruction from a teacher. We are committed to finding a way for this to happen in a safe manner, for all of our students. Glenna Grinstead Superintendent USD 284 Chase County 620-273-6303
The reopening guidelines were released today. The document is over 1000 pages in length. On Thursday, a group of teachers, administrators, the technology director,the school nurse and others will be attending a Zoom meeting about working with this document and moving forward with the USD 284 plan. I appreciate your patience in allowing us to work with this document and to plan for the upcoming year. We are looking at every aspect of school and working toward a cohesive plan with the education of students and the safety of students and staff utmost on our minds. Additionally, we also working with number of educational scenarios. Again, thank you for your support and patience. https://kasb.org/nb0714/?fbclid=IwAR0JOAyIg5PqUqSzWqG-mbcaESCueTl6kRByedgaA7ujkDpyNLd81aax63k
On Wednesday, July 8, the football team traveled to 5-on-5 football in Waverly. We have since learned that a Waverly player had been exposed to COVID-19 and is quarantining. At this point, our players need to remember to social distance, practice good hygiene and make good decisions. They do not need to be tested. If anything changes, we will be calling parents. After talking to the Chase County Health Official Carol Courier, we will be suspending all summer activities and workouts for July 13-16. Thank you.
