4:30 PM Update - If you’ve not heard, Governor Laura Kelly, under the direction of KDHE, has closed all school buildings in the state of Kansas until the end of the school year.While school buildings are closed, learning will continue for students in the state of Kansas. At Smoky Valley, we are committed to the health and safety of our students and staff and our efforts in the coming weeks will be reflective of this.
A task force created by KSDE is currently working on guidelines to help school districts customize solutions for their local communities and needs. The guidelines will be released to administrators on Wednesday night and will offer multiple options to fit our local needs.
USD 400 school administrators have already started working to address the issues under this new normal for our staff, students, and parents. We are developing a plan to provide breakfast and lunch meal services. Classroom and academic programming is also being developed to meet the needs of our students.
We’re blessed to work in an awesome district with amazing people. Working together, we will meet this current challenge.We appreciate your support in this effort. Please monitor this website and our USD 400 Smoky Valley social media accounts to stay updated on plans for the future.
Superintendent Glen Suppes will provide a video update later this evening on this web page.
