Good Morning, This morning, a student discovered a toy gun in a toilet at Nickerson High School. The student reported it to the office and it was retrieved by Police Chief Paul Allen. An investigation is currently underway in an attempt to determine who might have brought this to school. Again, this was a child's toy and presented no threat to students or staff. We just wanted to make you aware of the facts of the situation so you are not alarmed should you hear about this through different channels. Curtis Nightingale Superintendent

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Warning for our area through noon tomorrow. They are forecasting negative lows with wind chills reaching anywhere from -25 to -30 below. While temperatures may reach into the teens by the afternoon, this will not help our parents, students, or staff as they try to make it to school in the morning and the risks involved with that travel. So, unfortunately, school will once again be canceled for tomorrow, Tuesday, January 16th, 2024. With the temperatures getting back to normal in the afternoon, Activities scheduled for tomorrow are tentatively unaffected. As a side note, tomorrow will exhaust the number of snow days we have built into this year's school calendar. This is not an issue currently, but should we need to cancel school beyond tomorrow, we will be forced to schedule make-up days to satisfy the state requirement for attendance. Stay warm.

While the condition of many of the main roads has improved, side and county roads remain problematic. The U.S.D. 309 Nickerson-South Hutchinson Schools will have a 2-hour Late Start for Thursday, January 11, 2024, to allow for safer commuting in the daylight. Go slow and be careful out there.

While our Maintenance Staff has put in many hours today trying to get our campuses ready for school, and the city and county road crews have worked hard on the roads and overpasses, many rural roads and bus routes remain unsafe with drifting snow and underlying ice. With temperatures tonight in the teens, it is out of an abundance of caution that U.S.D. 309 schools will be canceled again tomorrow. With highs projected to be in the 40s by afternoon, we will determine afternoon activities by noon tomorrow. Stay safe.

The City of Nickerson is experiencing a water main break. It is anticipated both NHS and NES will be without water by noon. Buildings will be dismissed at 12:30. Buses are being mobilized to take bus riders home at that time. We plan to have school tomorrow but should the water issue not be rectified by then, we will notify you as soon as we know. NHS practices will proceed as scheduled.
