WABAUNSEE COUNTY EVACUATION ADVISORY DOWNGRADED TO HIGH WATER ADIVSORY The evacuation advisory for Wabaunsee County residents in and around the Kansas River flood plain has been lifted. As waters continue to recede, the potential for flooding has lowered. Residents who evacuated their homes due to the flood risk may return. Wabaunsee County officials will continue to monitor Tuttle Creek Lake and Kansas River levels, and weather forecasts. Although there are no present flooding concerns, river water levels are high, swiftly moving, and full of debris. Officials recommend people remain out of the Kansas River. Residents living in the area previously under the advisory should continue monitoring weather forecasts and water levels as weather changes may impact water levels. Up-to-date flood information may be found by visiting the Wabaunsee County Facebook pages: (Emergency Management; Sheriff, @wabaunseesheriff; Health Department, @WabaunseeCoHD; Economic Development, @wabaunsee.economicdevelopment).
Starting the week of June 3rd, the district office will begin its summer hours schedule. Open Monday-Thursdays 8-4 and closed Fridays.
An evacuation advisory is in effect for northern portions of Wabaunsee County in the Kansas River flood plain, including locations near Wabaunsee Townsite, Antelope Creek Road, Wells Creek Road, and Turkey Creek Road. At this time, we are encouraging people to take notice and consider evacuating. Within the next 24-78 hours, residents may need to evacuate due to high water impacts from the Kansas River. Water may impact homes, businesses, and nearby roads. Residents should continue to monitor news sources and feeds for updates concerning high water levels in Wabaunsee County. Be prepared to leave immediately once an evacuation order is given. AS A REMINDER, AT THIS TIME THIS IS AN EVACUATION ADVISORY ONLY. A temporary evacuation shelter will be open at noon on Thursday, May 30th, at the Alma Community Center basement, 1050 Ohio Street, Alma (west of the WHS football field). ATTENTION: Wabaunsee County residents in the Kansas River flood plain! Report your evacuation plans to Wabaunsee County officials at https://forms.gle/Cw8fMggo9hZdrVwm8 or 785-765-3821, Ext 2.

No Calendar Change-After talking with staff, we are able to absorb the 10 additional needed minutes in house at Wabaunsee Jr. High and Paxico Middle School. Our state mandated hours are based upon the school that goes the least total hours-WJH/PMS. The students are already at the schools and the staff will then begin class 10 minutes earlier at WJH and 5 minutes at PMS. Consequently, we'll reserve the right to add 10 minutes to each of the schools days in case it's needed. So, we will NOT be adding 10 minutes to the end of the school day, but will continue to not have Collaborative Starts. I apologize for the inconvenience and hopefully we'll not have to add the 10 minutes to the end of the school day

To clear up some questions about collaborative starts: Purpose-to be used for Collaborative time between teachers, staff & administration. Much of which will be used for curriculum/professional development- horizontally (IE-both 3rd grade teachers meet) & vertically (IE-WJH teachers meet with high school teachers to share what needs to be taught to prepare them for high school and PMS teachers meet with WJH teachers to share what needs to be taught to prepare them for WJH). State standards and The Leader in Me are to be matched to teaching lessons for appropriate grade and subject areas. Goals, timelines, lesson plans are to be matched to these standards. Administration is present to ensure accountability, provide guidance and resources based upon these goals. Not to be used for IEP, SIT meetings, etc. Why not "early releases" in the afternoons? Students released 45 minutes earlier than normal and then asking them to come back for practices, activities. Staff leaving early to "prepare" for or being involved in practices and activities. Students leaving campus or on campus without supervision has the potential of creating major issues. Accountability-students are to build their student leadership notebooks from these goals & timelines. Through intentional teaching of TLIM model they are responsible for their own destinies. Setting and tracking goals is paramount to student success. Teachers are there to facilitate, provide guidance and direction; giving students the information and model to be successful & effective citizens. Teachers are responsible to intentionally teach what they'll be testing-IE standards to be tested on local, state and national tests. By mastering these respective standards we should ensure our students have the background and ability to be successful & effective citizens. This will be measured by the KSDE report card and percentage of students who are successful & effective students. The goal is for 75% of our students to be successful & effective (per KSDE guidelines) as evidenced by them having any one or combination of: Associates Degree, Bachelors Degree, Industry Certification-IE CNA, Welder; enlisted in the Military or having a post secondary job. Times-Buses will pick up and run 25 minutes later than normal times. All district classes will start at 8:35 AM Breakfast-Those asking for breakfast will be receiving it either when they arrive at school or at the "second chance" breakfast times per respective buildings. I am empathetic to this being an inconvenience and some adjustments may need to be made during the process, but the expectation is that we will have Collaborative Starts beginning Wednesday, Sept 5th as outlined above.
