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.

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

In the meantime, please use this opportunity to discuss safety with your students and ensure they know to refuse such offers, and to run from the area if necessary.

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.
