In collaboration w/Butler County Health Department, USD 490 will be closing all buildings on 1-13-2022 & 1-14-2022. The final decision was based on staffing shortages & student absenteeism. We are working to reschedule any athletic/activities impacted. Stay well, Wildcats!
On the last #ThankfulThursday of the year, we look back on 2021 and reflect on everything we learned. We are grateful for everyone who is still here to ring in a new year. We look forward to the opportunities of 2022 and all of the ways we can live #EveryDayWithExcellence!
From Our Family to Yours...Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year! #EveryDaywithExcellence #PartofthePride
This #ThankfulThursday is dedicated to quality time with friends and family. While we love our students and co-workers, it is also important to rest and re-charge so we can be at our absolute best. Spending time with the people we love is a great way to do that. Happy holidays!
❄️ Happy Winter Break! ❄️ Classes will resume Jan. 5th, 2022. Have a safe and relaxing break, Wildcats! #EveryDaywithExcellence #PartofthePride #USD490Proud
On this #ThankfulThursday, we would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for our district families. Schools are most successful when they have support of the families and community they serve. We love the partnerships and family support we have as #PartOfThePride!
For Thinker Thursday, EHS students painted applesauce-cinnamon ornaments. Recipe: Mix 1 cup applesauce and 1 1/4 cup cinnamon. Sprinkle cinnamon on both sides of dough to prevent sticking as you roll it out. Cut into shapes. Bake at 200 for 2 hrs, turning every 30 mins.
This week's #ThankfulThurday shout-out is for our USD 490 staff. We can't thank you enough for all the ways you step up to the plate and go to bat for our students and families, working #EveryDayWithExcellence. We are incredibly fortunate to have each of you as #PartOfThePride!
