Please review information in the picture packets sent home for more information!
 
Attendance Update!
 Your child’s education along with the habits and attitudes they form around arriving on time and ready to work are of great importance to USD 259 and employers in our community.
In elementary schools, academic instruction begins promptly at 9:00 a.m. in the Wichita Public Schools. Effective March 2, 2015, students that are not in school from 9:00 a.m. to 4:10 p.m. will have their attendance record marked as follows:
 
Students arriving after 9:00 a.m. and before 10:30 will be marked TARDY.
Students arriving to school between 10:30 a.m. and the start of the school’s lunch period or leaving at the start of the school’s lunch period to 2:30 p.m. will be marked as a ½ day absence for the morning or afternoon.
Students leaving school after 2:30 p.m. will be marked as EARLY OUT.
 
Spring Weather Reminders!
As most of you know, our gym is also designed as a safe room during inclement weather. The walls are designed to withstand 250 mph winds!!! There are several important items that you need to be aware of when we are in the shelter during a Tornado/Severe Weather Warning.
 
  • We cannot open the doors once we have everyone in and secured! The structure only works when the doors are shut. All students, staff and parents that are in the shelter must remain there until we are given an all clear. If we open the doors, we compromise the safety of everyone in the shelter. 
 
  • If you are in the building after we have moved all students into the closed shelter, we will have signs on the doors indicating that you can proceed to our secondary shelter in the restrooms down the hall. 
Proud Moment
This is a wonderful video that was made by the third grade children during the 2012-2013 school year. The song was written and performed by Jenny Detra with our kiddos singing backup. It truly reflects the caring attitude of our children and staff at Earhart.
