The Jones Family As many are aware, tragedy struck our 309 family this week when the Joneses (Trey, Amy, Ava, and Creek) were involved in an accident in Louisville, KY. While we await confirmation of their health statuses, we have two opportunities to reach out: 1) Candlelit Vigil for the Joneses - Please join us this coming Sunday, July 10 to come together in unity to speak power and love over the Jones family. We will meet at the track at Nickerson High School at 8:45 to begin joining together at 9:00 to lift their family up to ask for full healing and hope for complete recovery. PLEASE bring your own candles, as we don’t have time to purchase enough before that time. We are asking for every lover of their family to join us, no matter your beliefs, to shine a light on this beloved family. Wear your Nickerson Gear--Together we shine brighter. Candlelit Vigil for the Jones’s When: Sunday, July 10th Time: 8:45 pm Where: Track at Nickerson High School. 2) A fund entitled "The Jones Family Fund" has been set up at the People's Bank in Hutchinson. Please consider a donation as your heart leads to help offset the mounting medical and living expenses being incurred by them so far from home.
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.

Panther Staff and Families, The safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority. The Nickerson/South Hutchinson District has become aware of a troubling social media trend that has been shared widely this week on the platform TikTok referring to a potential threat to school safety on Friday, December 17. While there have not been any credible reports within our district regarding this TikTok trend, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking it seriously. We have been in contact with the Reno County Sheriff’s Department and Cheif Allen has been alerted. Out of an abundance of caution, we may have an increased police presence in our buildings on December 17. We are proud of our outstanding students and staff, and take pride in the excellent environment USD 309 provides to learn and work. These harmful social media trends are a distraction from our learning environment, and are unacceptable. We ask our families to monitor their children’s social media activity and speak with them about proper behavior online. If you or your child become aware of any potential threat posted to social media or anywhere else, please notify a school staff member or trusted adult immediately. As always, thank you for your ongoing partnership as we serve our students in a safe, secure, and positive learning environment.

Reno County is in the Yellow Zone for the week of 5/3/21, this is the second week in a row in the Yellow Zone. Please note, the PTR and the cases have steadily increased, however, the testing rate is very low, so the New Case Count per 100,000 is what we are looking at for Gating Metrics. Recommendations from the RCHD and the Medical Collaborative regarding Covid-19 include the following mitigating measures, social distance by more than 6 ft., wash hands frequently, wear a mask, stay home when you are sick, and get vaccinated. If you are sick you may get tested through your provider or the Free Community Testing site. Log on to https://www.gogettested.com/ for more information and directions as to how to sign up. This Week’s Data: Prior Data: 14 Day PTR – 4/26– 11.7% 14 Day PTR - 4/19– 17.3% 14 Day New Case - 4/19– 62 14 Day New Case-4/19- 63 We are encouraging students over 16 to be vaccinated, they would not be excluded from end of year activities if they were exposed to Covid-19, as we would consider them immune for 6 months after they are 2 weeks post fully vaccinated. We encourage parents and students to consider this option. Kansas is now vaccinating individuals 16 – up, vaccines do need to be age appropriate for the individual (Pfizer 16 yrs. and up, Moderna is for 18 yrs. and up). You may go to https://vaccinefinder.org/ and find locations that have the brand you are looking for. Reno County Health Dept. is scheduling appointments and walk-ins or go online and visit the Hutchinson Clinic, Dillon’s pharmacies, Walmart or The Medicine Shoppe for availability.
