ECKAN Head Start provides FREE early childhood development services to families who qualify. Services vary in each county and community, based upon the needs identified through a community assessment process. Families can sign up for the following service options: Home-Based 90-minute, weekly home visits for families with children ages prenatal to 5 years. Head Start focuses on the development of the “whole” child and family. This means, we help families explore children’s overall health, mental health, social-emotional, and physical well-being as well as focusing on the typical intellectual development of children, including children with disabilities. Head Start believes parents are their child’s first and most important teacher. Therefore, we support parents to better understand early childhood development as well as support them to assess and set goals to reach their dreams for life-long outcomes and success. Research has proven children and families who attended Head Start were much more likely to become highly engaged and productive citizens as adults. ECKAN believes most people are doing the very best they know how to do. The question is, how do we begin to know those things unknown to us? Head Start offers intentional support to those who open their minds to ask, wonder, and learn. Go to http://www.eckan.org/headstart/ to learn what services are provided in each area. There is contact information available on the site as well as an opportunity to enter information for someone to contact them. Anyone can call 785-242-7450 to talk to an ECKAN employee. For information regarding Head Start in Coffey County, contact Kathy Sage at 620-203-0778.

Good Afternoon, The USD 243 Lebo-Waverly administration and staff are working hard on our continuing learning plan. I would like to thank all of you that responded to our internet question the last couple of days. We are working on a solution for those that don’t have reliable internet access and should have a plan in the next few days. What I need from you now, is how many of you would need a device to connect to the internet. We are looking at checking out district devices for those that don’t have any type of device (computer, tablet). Please contact me at 785-229-5732 via text or phone message if you would need a device for your child to receive continuing learning. We will continue to plan and keep you informed as we move forward in these uncharted times!
Lebo-Waverly schools are in the process of putting together our continuous learning plan. Please call or text 785-229-5732 if you DO NOT have reliable internet access at home! f you text this information, please let us know who the text is from.
Thursday the continuity commission will release guidance to schools regarding continuing to educate and how to work with our families. Our administrators will meet online Friday to continue hatching a plan. Keep in mind...Safety first! Do not put yourself in proximity of other people. No face to face. No personal contact. Stay away from other people. This is for your safety, as well as, their safety. Learning to read and write is secondary, at this time, to your health and the health and safety of others. Our #1 charge is to provide a safe environment for students and staff. Right now that means stay away from other people as much as possible. Please do not do anything to cause people to come near you or come near each other. We will, in time, get processes in place for education and meals. For now, be patient! Sincerely, Corey Reese, Superintendent Lebo Waverly USD 243

Everyone, Randy Watson, Commissioner of Education, has recommended closure of schools that are coming off spring break this week. The Governor supports this recommendation. I have meetings tomorrow with County Emergency, Health, and School Leaders. I will let you know what comes from this meeting. Moving forward all district activities are cancelled including sports practice. There will be no sports or activity practice this week. There is a phrase called "Flattening the Curve". I will send you a video that explains the concept. We need everyone to self isolate as much as you can. We need to take universal precautions such as hygiene and hand washing. Encourage everyone to keep their kids as isolated as possible. Stay away from places people gather. This is kind of like a full court press, everybody has to be committed to slowing this disease down. If 4 out 5 people cooperate, It will be layups for this virus. We need everybody to self social isolate in order to slow this thing down. We are on spring break but need to have the mindset that we are closed due to a very fast moving and infectious illness. Sincerely, -- Corey Reese, Superintendent Lebo Waverly USD 243

This includes cancellation of all practices and competitions for this week. This prohibition is consistent with KSDE and governmental guidance and may be extended, should conditions warrant.
