Letter to our parents on COVID-19 precautions

Below is a letter we've shared with our parents.

March 12, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The safety, health, and well-being of our students and staff is our top priority. We want to share basic facts with you and what the district is doing at this point to keep your family healthier.  

Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Confirmation can only be done with a specialized respiratory test. According to KDHE there are four confirmed cases in Kansas.

Students need up-to-date vaccinations

            Kansas’ law requires students to be vaccinated for a variety of childhood diseases prior to attending school each year. Many of these are timed prior to pre-school and kindergarten while another group of vaccinations have to be taken prior to seventh grade. More complete information is available at http://www.kdheks.gov/immunize/download/Immunization_Requirements_for_the_2018-2019_School_Year_Cheat_Sheet.pdf.

            Enrollment is not completed in USD 308 until proof of vaccinations is provided, therefore students will not be able to attend classes. Families also may provide proof of a medical or religious exemption in lieu of the vaccinations, but state regulation requires the exemptions to be filed annually.
