Dear Parents/Guardians of USD 243 students, We would like to welcome all families back for the second semester of the 2020-2021 school year. Classes will resume on January 4, 2021 as regularly scheduled. As with the first semester, it is our desire to be able to offer in-class instruction for the entire school year. This can be accomplished if everyone is actively participating in COVID-19 mitigation protocols (face masks, social distancing, washing hands, etc.). As a reminder: Keep your child home if he/she is sick (running a fever, cough, or other COVID related symptoms.). Please communicate with the school or your healthcare provider if you have questions about a sick child. If your child has recently (during the break) tested positive for COVID-19 or has been exposed to a positive case, please contact the school to determine a return to school date. All students are required to return to face-to-face instruction this semester unless they are medically compromised and USD 243 administration has approved your child for continued Remote Learning. We would like to thank everyone for your cooperation, flexibility, and understanding as we continue to navigate through this pandemic. Again, it is our goal to be in school and remain in school. With everyone’s help and support, we feel this goal can be accomplished. If you have additional questions, please contact your child's attendance center. Sincerely, USD 243 Administration Team
The Kansas State High School Activities Association Board of Directors voted Tuesday, December 8, to allow for up to two parents/guardians per participant families as allowed by local board of education or health department restrictions. USD 243 Lebo-Waverly will comply with this directive. No “substitutes” can be used for a parent/guardian if they are unable to attend a contest. All spectators must be masked and worn correctly the entire time in the facility, even if they are socially distanced. Please remember, the reason restricted attendance is necessary is to minimize exposure opportunities and support school and community health. Parents/guardians are there to support their child while in competition. We are asking all parents/guardians to arrive at the estimated time of your child’s game and leave shortly after the game is completed. There will be no tickets given to the athletes and instead a pass list will be provided. ID’s matt be required at away contests.
WINTER SPORTS TO PROCEED WITH GAMES IN DECEMBER; NO FANS ALLOWED UNTIL JAN. 28 The Kansas State High School Activities Association Board of Directors voted on Tuesday, November24, to start the winter sports season as scheduled! Competition can begin on December 1. No spectators will be permitted at competition from Dec. 1 to Jan. 28, 2021. Starting on Jan. 29 through the remainder of the winter regular season and postseason, attendance shall be limited to allow for appropriate distancing for the facility and in accordance with local admission and attendance policies. The Board of Directors also voted to require face covering for all participants at game sites. This includes athletes, coaches, officials, spectators, support staff and all others attending or participating in school activities. The face covering must be worn in the manner it is intended for the purpose of COVID-19 risk mitigation. The only exceptions are athletes during the time they are competing and for officials during active play. This ruling applies to all KSHSAA sponsored activities, including Junior High! USD 243 Lebo-Waverly will make every effort to make games available via live streaming. We are currently working on the NFHS system and hope to have it up as soon as possible. If this system isn’t online, some type of live streaming will be available.

Everyday, we see more and more COVID-19 cases being reported. Along with those growing numbers, more and more schools are required to go total Remote. Everyday we can have students attend school is a blessing, but we all know that In-Person attendance could be put on hold at any time! To better prepare students and staff for the possibility of Remote Learning, USD 243 will have planning and preparation days for students in grades 6-12 on Monday, November 30th and Tuesday, December 1st. Students will attend class from home, via their school issued device, for every class period. If your student doesn’t have internet access you should let your building principal or Doug Piper know as soon as possible. Daycare/PK through Grade 5 will attend their classes as normal. At this time, there are no plans to go online for grades 5 and below. In the future, if we go online for elementary student's instruction, we will set aside time to organize that process. More information will be provided if/when this time comes.
The Board of Education meeting scheduled for Monday, Nov. 9 has been postponed until Monday, Nov. 23 at 7:00pm at the BOE Office.
Correction, Friday October 16th.

Dear USD 243 Families, I would like to welcome everyone back for the 2020-21 school year. Our sincere hope is to provide an educational experience that is as close to normal as possible for you and your family. The best way I can think of to keep school close to normal is to make individual choices that help mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 virus. USD 243 and Coffey County have developed many plans, procedures, and policies to best protect ourselves and others around us. Most, if not all, of the planning documents can be found on the District and School Website. Our leaders have tried to anticipate as many scenarios as possible that might be cause for concern to our students, staff, and families. School will definitely look and feel different. In order to keep our schools open and to keep each other as safe as possible, we feel these procedures are extremely important. Some people may not agree with all of the requirements that have been developed. These procedures are necessary if schools are to open and to continue to operate as normally as possible. Please try to be flexible and understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters. Most people agree that children need to return to school. Our hope is that these special considerations are not long-term. Where things go from here is up to all of us. Please keep your child home if they are sick with a Fever, Cough, etc. Communicate with the School or your health care provider if you have questions about an ill child. We do have some essential guidance and protocols available on USD243KS.org The school district has adopted several safety measures that are recommended by the Coffey County Health Department, Kansas Health Department, as well as, the CDC. Safety Measures include but are not limited to: wearing face masks indoors while at school, social distancing greater than 6 feet, temperature screenings of students and staff, better air filtration and circulation, and many more measures that are too numerous to mention. Once again, it is our goal to be in school in person as normal as possible. We can do this together. We need everyone’s support. Cooperation is critical. If you have any questions please contact your child’s school attendance center. Sincerely, Corey Reese Corey Reese, Superintendent Lebo-Waverly USD 243
