Panthers, We have been informed that several law enforcement agencies and school districts across the state are dealing with false reports related to school violence. We have NOT received any such calls, nor have the local agencies that serve our respective areas (S. Hutch PD, Hutch PD, Reno County SO). The KBI and the FBI are actively working to identify and apprehend the caller(s). Dozens of similar calls were made in Colorado yesterday. That said, we wanted to make you aware that: 1) There have been no such calls regarding our schools; 2) Our Administrative team has met and gone over our response plan; 3) Chief Allen will be monitoring our schools from within; 4) We have been in communication with all law enforcement agencies to revisit our plans and to confirm our respective responses to such reports. Student and staff safety is our number one priority. We will work closely with our local authorities should such a report be made and we will communicate with our families as soon as possible should such a response be needed. Curtis Nightingale Superintendent

New Student Lunch Information for the 2022-2023 School Year: During the last two years, pandemic child nutrition waivers have been utilized to provide free meals to all students at school. On March 10, 2022, the U.S. Senate passed the Omnibus Appropriations bill, which did not extend these waivers that expired on June 30, 2022. Therefore, the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs will be reinstated for School Year 2022-2023, offering school meals at the paid, reduced, and free rates. Families who believe they may qualify for free or reduced-price meals may complete an Application for Free or Reduced- Price School Meals during the enrollment process for SY 2022-2023. Families who do not qualify for free meals will be responsible for paying for their child(ren's) meals at the reduced or paid rates. The District will continue to provide any added information regarding student meals as it becomes available. Please contact our Food Service Department at 620-663-7141 if you have any additional questions.
