Dear Parents of HS Athletes, Mission Valley High School partners with Cotton O’Neil Orthopedics & Sports Medicine to provide athletic training services for our school. This year, Cotton O’Neil Orthopedics & Sports Medicine of Topeka is offering a high school ‘Sports Physical Day’ from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, 2018. This event is open only to students entering grades 9 through 12 in the 2018-2019 school year, who attend a school where Cotton O’Neil provides the athletic training services. There is no appointment needed, and the cost of the physical is $20. Cotton O’Neil will be donating half of that cost back to us to use for athletic training services. Students who participate in this ‘Sports Physical Day’ will be seen by board-certified sports medicine physicians. Should a student need a referral for a cardiology check, the Cotton O’Neil pediatric cardiologist will be on site as well. This is a great opportunity to check something off your to-do list before the next school year, and this physical will be good for all of next school year. If you have additional questions, please call the Michael Ramirez with Cotton O’Neil Orthopedics & Sports Medicine at (785) 354-5910, or Rod Hasenbank at 866-557-6686.

Mission Valley Parents & Families, On Friday, April 20th another National Student Walkout Day has been planned. From around the country, plans indicate that the event will begin at 10:00 a.m. and continue through the end of the school day. We understand that the purpose of the school walkout is to remember the innocent victims of school violence and to raise the awareness of school safety. As a school district, we are not encouraging or discouraging students to participate. It is possible that some students at Mission Valley may want to participate in this nationwide event. USD 330 encourages parents and their children to have discussions about this event and believes the decision to participate in the April 20th walkout should be left to individual families. On April 20, parents must contact the school administrative office in advance to excuse their student. All classes and school-related activities will continue on their normal schedule. USD 330 will not provide a designated, supervised area for students to gather at on school property. If students walkout of class at 10:00 a.m. they will need to follow normal school process to check-out, exit the building, and leave school property. Again, advance notification from parents is required for students to be excused from classes missed. School attendance and absence policies will be followed. Information about attendance and absences can be located in the Student Handbook which can be found on the district website and mobile app. Thank you for your continued support of USD 330 Mission Valley. We are looking forward to having a GREAT and PRODUCTIVE final weeks of the 2017-2018 school year. Go VIKINGS!!!

April is Autism Awareness Month and begins today celebrating World Autism Awareness Day by wearing blue. The puzzle ribbon is another way to show support for Autism. -Did you know that according to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) that Autism is one of the fastest growing developmental disabilities? -Autism is more than 4.5 times more common among boys. The CDC estimates 1 in 42 boys have Autism and 1 in 189 for girls. -Parents of a child with Autism, have a 2-18% of a second child having Autism, as well as children born to older parents. -Most children diagnosed with Autism have an average to above average intellectual ability. -Families with a child who has Autism, have medical expenditures of $4,000-$6,000 above a family without. In addition to medical bills, families can have additional costs associated with behavior interventions, lost wages of a parent, counseling, and special education. Please support Parents that have children with Autism through the time, and educational supports that you can provide. For more information, there are lots of online resources that provide education, resources and information about Autism. https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/data.html https://bit.ly/2Eefl8h https://bit.ly/2J8R2wh

Congratulations to the JH BB teams with their performance at the Flint Hills Junior League Tournament. The girls not only finished as the regular season league champions at 15-1, but the FHL Tournament Champions as well (beat CG 37-34 in the Championship). This is the first time that the girls have ever accomplished this feat, so congratulations to the girls and coaches! The boys team made great improvement down the stretch as they lost a heart breaker in the last seconds of the semi-finals to #1 seed and undefeated Council Grove (the boys had lost to them in late December by more than 25 points), and then after leading the majority of the 3rd-4th place game the boys got beat at the buzzer by a 3 pt. shot as they finished their season 4th in the league. We will honor our league champion girls at our next Home HS Girls game on January 23rd vs. Northern Heights.

It is important to make sure that ALL students take precautions during times of bitter cold--students should limit exposure of skin to cold---wear clothing to protect their head, face, hands and feet. Students should wear a heavy coat to school as well. Dressing properly not only will prepare them for waiting on the bus or being prepared if the vehicle they are riding in were to break down on the way to school, but also, they are prepared in the event we would have to evacuate school due to a fire or other event.

January 15, 2018 Parent(s) & Patron(s): As you know we are in that time of the year when the possibility of school cancellations, early dismissals, or have a late start increase due to adverse winter conditions. The decision to modify the school day due to weather is always carefully examined before the final decision is made. School district officials directly check and monitor roadway conditions, they contact local agencies {KDOT, Wabaunsee County Transportation Department, local law enforcement agencies, etc...} for road condition reports. Information is also considered from local weather reports and communication with other local districts. USD 330 Mission Valley is approximately 375 square miles with land and roads in four counties. Due to the large area that the district covers the road and weather conditions can vary across the district at any one time. 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. USD 330 recognizes the fact that cancelling/delaying the start/dismissing early can create challenges for parents who need to find care for their child(ren), however, the safety of students will come first. If a final decision cannot be made the night before then it is our goal to have a decision made in the mornings between 5:30 a.m. and 6:00 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. Information will also be sent to local television and radio stations, as well as, USD 330 district website and social media. Information will be sent to be broadcasted on the following: {TV Stations---Channels 13, 27 & 49} {Radio Stations: 580 WIBW-AM, 104.9 FM, 94.5 Country, and 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 through the district office. Have a great day and stay warm!!!!
