There will be no school Jan. 29, Feb. 26, or Apr. 5
At the Jan. 11 Board of Education meeting, the BOE gave their approval for USD 490 to utilize a KSDE waiver to replace three student contact days with staff professional development days.
There will be no school for students on Jan. 29, Feb. 26, or Apr. 5. These days will be used to provide training to district staff.
The original 20-21 school year calendar had professional development days scheduled throughout the school year. Due to the changes driven by the pandemic, all of those professional development days were moved to the front of the calendar, and the start of school was delayed, so we could prepare our staff and buildings for a school year unlike any we have experienced to date.
These extra professional development days will allow district staff to receive additional training and support.
If you have any questions, please contact the District Office at 316-322-4800.
