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! Sincerely, Susan Beeson Superintendent/PreK- Principal Centre USD 397

Agenda for special board meeting
Centre's Junior High and High School students orr parents who are not currently in quarantine, can come up to the school at any time today to pick up supplies, homework, books, and instruments for the next couple weeks. Teachers and staff have worked hard this morning to gather up everything that we think that your student will need in the next couple weeks of remote learning. Please either call when you drive up to the school or ring the doorbell, and we will be glad to bring the supplies to you. Students who are not currently in quarantine will be allowed to come into the building and clean out their gym lockers if they have one.

If your student at Centre is learning remotely, they are still eligible for free breakfast and lunch. They will sign up remotely with their first hour class as they remote in for the day. We are unable to deliver meals at this time, as our school waiver does not provide for that service. Meals can be picked up curbside at 11:45 each morning. We ask that if you do sign up, please make sure to pick up the meals so that food does not go to waste.
