Kansas Governor Laura Kelly has announced the closing of all Kansas school buildings through the remainder of the school year.
Below is the announcement from Pittsburg Community Schools, as posted on usd250.org
At 4:00 today, Governor Laura Kelly announced the closing of all Kansas schools through the remainder of the school year. School districts, however, have been tasked with designing educational plans to meet student needs for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. With this recommendation, as well as our own concern for the safety and well-being of our students and families, USD 250 Pittsburg Community Schools will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The district will be working over the next few weeks to design various types of learning opportunities for our students with the guidance provided by KDHE.
We understand this brings many questions and concerns from our community. District Leadership in partnership with the Board of Education has started working through our next steps as a district.
Here is what we know now:
- Spring Break, March 23-27, will remain student and staff time off as scheduled.
- USD 250 will continue to provide meals until March 20 and begin again following Spring Break on March 30.
- The following week, March 30- April 3, will be a planning week for our staff to implement the plan provided by the Kansas Extended Learning Task Force.
- USD 250 will make every effort to provide opportunities to our Dragons for continual learning with the guidelines provided by KDHE. We will take every Dragon into consideration moving forward.
We ask for your patience as we navigate this unprecedented situation and work through additional details. As we have more specifics about what services we will be able to provide for families in need during this closure, we will communicate through our regular means.
