Kindergarten Screening and Round-Up

posted Feb 27, 2017, 12:34 PM by Jeannie Browning

The Kindergarten Screening will be held Friday, March 31st, 2017 at Mission Valley Elementary. The screening will be used as an informational tool to assist both parents and teachers in determining your child’s readiness for Kindergarten. The screening results will be used to show areas of strength and areas of needed improvement in order for your child to be successful upon entering Kindergarten. Any child planning on entering Kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year should plan on attending this screening. The screening will take approximately 30 minutes and parents are encouraged to stay and observe. Vision and hearing screenings will also be available that day. Please call the Mission Valley Elementary office at 866-557-6686 to reserve your time slot. 

 The Kindergarten Round-Up will be Wednesday, April 12th, at Mission Valley Elementary. We will have a morning session and an afternoon session. The morning session will begin at 9:00 am and last until approximately 11:00 am. The afternoon session will begin at 1:30 pm and last until approximately 3:30 pm. During this time, your child will participate in a typical Kindergarten activity. At the same time, parents will receive information about the school and meet with school officials. Following that, you and your child will have an opportunity to take a tour of the school, go on a short bus ride and enjoy refreshments. The refreshment time will also be used to talk one-on-one about your child’s screening results. For questions and to reserve your time slots for the screening and the roundup, please call 866-557-6686.

When do we cancel school because of Weather???

posted Dec 6, 2016, 6:25 AM by Jeannie Browning

Parents & Patrons:

We are quickly approaching that time of year when the possibility of school cancellations increase due to adverse winter conditions.  The decision to cancel school is always carefully examined before the final decision is made.  School district officials directly check and monitor roadway conditions, they contact local agencies {KDOT, Wab. Co. Transportation Dept., local law enforcement, etc..} for road conditions reports, keep updated from local weather reports as to current & future weather conditions, and communicate with other local school districts.

USD 330 Mission Valley is approximately 400 square miles with land in four counties.  Due to the large area that the district covers; the road and weather conditions can vary greatly across the district.  Roads may be treacherous in one area of the district and safe in other areas, however, the determination for school closure is based off of the area that is impacted the most.  We recognize the fact that cancelling school can create challenges for parents who need to find care for their child(ren), however, the safety of the students will come first.

If a decision cannot be made the night before then it is our goal to have a decision made in the mornings by 5:30 a.m.   If adverse weather occurs during the school day and school needs to be dismissed early we will send out a notification at least 1 hour before dismissal.  It is important to make sure that your child’s contact information is updated so that we have the most recent information.

If it is decided to cancel school we will immediately send an automated call through School Messenger. School closure information will also be sent to local t.v. and radio stations, as well as, USD 330 district website, Facebook, and Twitter. School closure information will be broadcasted on the following:  (TV Stations:  Channels 13, 27, and 49) (Radio Stations: 580 WIBW-AM, 104.9 FM, 94.5 Country, Country Legends 106.9).

ALL SCHOOL ACTIVITIES will be cancelled or postponed when school is closed for dangerous road conditions, except for unique situations authorized by the district office.

We greatly appreciate your continued patience and understanding when school cancellation is required.

Bill Clark, Superintendent
