May 3, 2019 Parent(s)/Guardian(s): Thank you for your attendance this past Wednesday for the 4th – 6th Grade Spring Concert. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the 5th Grade Band was not able to perform as previously scheduled. I know our students, as well as Mr. Rogers, have worked very hard throughout the year and we want to make sure they have an opportunity to perform their portion of the concert. After meeting with the students on Thursday and talking with Mr. Rogers, we have worked together to find a solution so our students can still have their performance. On Wednesday, May 8th, our 5th Grade Band will perform a small concert at 3:00 in the main gym. | know that some may wish to attend, but due to work or prior commitments you might not be able to. With that said, I would still like to extend this invitation to anyone that may be able to come and watch our students perform. I look forward to seeing them perform next Wednesday, and thank you again for all your support throughout the year and through this change. Sincerely, Brett Fenton

Please read this wonderful letter from a mom of a child with Autism. Attached is an order form if you would like an Autism Awareness Shirt. "Hey Mission Valley Vikings! Many of you know my son Carter. He is usually bouncing off the walls or observing the way things fall. His latest thing is using a chain or a string of beads and swirling it like a lasso. We have a real cowboy in our family! And how can you forget that smile?! Carter was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2. He wasn't interested in playing. His favorite past time was poking shoe laces down into a heat vent. Anyone who knows me knows I could go on and on so I will try my best here. I have been so amazed and proud of Carter's classmates and this school as a whole. I believe understanding is the key to acceptance. It's understanding why Carter gets upset when there's too much noise. That it may not be a tantrum but Carter just having a hard time. Also, just because Carter is non-verbal doesn't mean that he doesn't have anything to say. Carter uses an IPad to communicate. Many times, I have heard about a friend taking Carter's hand or asking him if he needs his talk Ipad. My wish is that every child understands just because Autism may make you think and play differently doesn't mean that you can't be friends. So, with that being said, April is Autism Acceptance Month. We will be selling shirts to help raise awareness and acceptance. All proceeds will be staying within the Mission Valley School. With Mrs. Meek's help, I would like to purchase a few framed Autism Acceptance posters to place around our halls in hopes to help educate parents, students, and visitors. This is one step of spreading awareness and acceptance. "Look beyond Autism and see someone special" Thank you for your support! Ronie Willard

Viking Family: With the recent tragic events across the country involving students being struck by vehicles while loading onto a bus it is important for us to remember safety rules regarding school buses. More school aged pedestrians have died during the hour before and after school than any other time of day, according to NHTSA. And, although drivers are required by law to stop for a school bus when it's loading or unloading passengers, they often don't. Kansas Law KSA 8-1556 requires all motorists to stop when approaching or overtaking a stopped school bus displaying its flashing red lights and stop arm. Motorists are to remain stopped until the bus is no longer displaying is flashing red lights and stop arm. Violation of this law not only endangers children but is punishable by a fine and court costs in excess of $420. Tips for a Safe Ride for Students School buses are the safest way for students to travel, but children also need to do their part to stay alert and aware of their surroundings to prevent injury. NSC urges parents to teach their children the following safety rules for getting on and off the bus, and for exercising good behavior while riding. Getting on the Bus: ● When waiting for the bus, stay away from traffic and avoid roughhousing or other behavior that can lead to carelessness ● Do not stray onto the street, alleys or private property ● Line up away from the street or road as the bus approaches ● Wait until the bus has stopped and the door opens before approaching the bus ● Use the handrail when boarding Behavior on the Bus: ● Don't speak loudly or make loud noises that could distract the driver ● Stay in your seat ● Don't put your head, arms or hands out the window ● Keep aisles clear of books and bags ● Get your belongings together before reaching your stop ● Wait for the bus to stop completely before getting up from your seat Getting Off the Bus: ● Use the handrail when exiting ● If you have to cross in front of the bus, first walk at least 10 feet ahead until you can see the driver ● Make sure the driver can see you ● Wait for a signal from the driver before crossing ● When the driver signals, look left, right, then left again. Walk across the road and keep an eye out for sudden traffic changes ● If your vision is blocked, move to an area where you can see other drivers and they can see you ● Do not cross the center line of the road until the driver signals it is safe ● Stay away from the rear wheels of the bus at all times Thank you!

Governor Jeff Colyer has proclaimed Wednesday, October 24, 2018, as School Bus Drivers’ Appreciation Day. https://www.ksde.org/Portals/0/School%20Bus/KSPTA/Governor%20Proclamation%202018.pdf These men and women dedicate their time and talent to make sure our students are safely transported to and from school and activities. National School Bus Safety Week is October 22-26, 2018. This is the perfect time to contact local members of the media and encourage them to include a story on bus safety – including the importance of obeying the law regarding stopped school buses. With a nationwide shortage of bus drivers, you also may want to ask people to consider applying to become a school bus driver. Kansas bus drivers transport more than 225,000 children to and from schools across Kansas every school day. These drivers are extremely valuable assets and are unsung heroes in communities across the state.

At the June 11th Board of Education meeting the Board voted to move forward with implementing a Random Drug Testing Program at the 7th-12th grade levels. The Random Drug Testing program will not become official until the Board of Education takes final action to approve the proposed policy that is being created. The next regular scheduled board meeting is set for Monday, July 23, 2018 @ 7 p.m. The information that was received from the Random Drug Testing Survey this Spring, which was completed by 275 parent(s)/patron(s), identified that 75% of the respondents indicated some level of concern of drug use at Mission Valley with 35% of respondents reporting that they are extremely concerned. In addition, 60% of the respondents indicated that they believed a random drug testing program should be implemented at Mission Valley. The survey also indicated that over 50% felt that a public meeting should be held to discuss this information. On Thursday, July 12th @ 6:30 p.m. an informational meeting will be held at Mission Valley.

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!!!

Congratulations to our FFA Robotics Team for their 2nd place finish this past weekend in Kansas City at the BotsKC competition. Teams such as KSU, ISU, NDSU and Pitt State were involved. They will be heading to nationals in California, PA from May 16-19. Their robot, Black Widow, became a fan favorite and was originally underrated due to our small school and lack of resources. The robotics team members are: Mateo Lisk, Keith Jones, PJ Myers, Zach McCarley, Caleb Hinck, Brandon Hittle, Trevor Moore and Kyle Atwood. Congratulations!
