Winter Safety Tips

Greetings, Students, Parents, and Centre Staff:


Thank you for your continued support of our students, our staff, and our school community during this fall semester. We hope this message finds you doing well, and we wanted to take a moment to reiterate our collective “Thank You!” for everything you have done, are doing, and will continue to do to help our students and our school.


Before we begin the upcoming Holiday Break, we wanted to take a moment to share the following information and reminders:


●      Colder weather, more time inside, and the onset of cold and flu season are upon us. The CDC has provided this guidance for winter holidays, which include continuing to practice social distancing (at least 6 feet), frequent handwashing, avoiding large gatherings, and wearing a mask.

●      If you or your family members do not feel well at any time over the break, we have included this graphic that shares which symptoms are most commonly associated with the cold, the flu, and COVID-19.

●      If anyone you know is interested in serving as a substitute teacher in our school during the spring semester, please review and/or share the information provided in this link to review the qualifying criteria provided by the Kansas State Department of Education. If you have any questions, please let me know.


We will miss seeing and working with our students during this upcoming break. Stay warm, stay safe, and please know how much we appreciate everything that you are doing to focus on the health and success of our students, staff members, and community!
