Hopefully you've had a chance to check out our new website and app. As we continue to tweak things I wanted to share with you where you can find some of the resources from the old site. If you select Menu from the top right of the screen, it will pop up with various pages. Underneath each of these pages is a drop down menu. If you are looking for PowerSchool, you will find it under Parent/Student Resources for either JH/HS or the elementary. Our plan is to have a quick link at the bottom of the front page to make that easier to find. Please be patient with us as we make these changes.

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.

Due to the extreme wind chill prediction, school for January 16, will have a 2 hour delay. 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!!!!
