After Prom Meeting will be held Tuesday, January 23, 2017 at the halftime of the girls game in the school cafeteria. If you are interested in helping with this event please plan to attend. Brainstorming for ideas for activities, prizes, and fundraising will all be discussed.
On February 1, school will begin one hour later than normal at 9 AM. Morning buses will run one hour later than normal. If a student needs to be at school at 8 AM due to parents' work schedules, that student will be supervised by school personnel until the time that classes begin. This late start has been added to the school schedule to give time for teachers to work on planning for student-led conferences.
If you are a college student and your parents have KanOkla telephone, you are eligible to apply for a KanOkla scholarship. Please send Mrs. Byers (firstname.lastname@example.org) your email , and she will respond with your application. They are due April 1, but if you want her to deliver it, she would like it before spring break (March 10). She will make sure it gets in the right hands. :)
If your student is absent from school for any reason, a phone call or note from a parent or guardian is required for the absence to be an excused absence. If your student needs to leave school early and will be driving themselves OR be picked up by someone other than a parent or guardian, you will need to call the school in advance for the student to leave early with that person.
If you have any questions, please call the high school office at 620-892-5215 X2.
School will begin at 8:00 a.m. and will dismiss at 3:40 p.m. each day. Parents...please DO NOT send your children to school before 7:45 a.m. Students will not be supervised except from 7:45 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. when teachers will be on duty.

Congratulations to Alaina, Liberty, and Carolyn on Earning Your CNA Certifications
Congratulations to Alaina Resendez, Liberty Palmer, and Carolyn Culp, who earned their CNA certifications as a result of taking classes toward CNA certification at Cowley College and passing a certification test. Why is CNA certification important? It signifies that these students have gained the right level of knowledge to care for patients. From taking vital signs to knowing what to do in an emergency, CNAs have a lot of responsibility on their shoulders. Certification ensures their knowledge has been tested and tells employers they carry the skills necessary to do their job well. South Haven BOE President Luke Theurer presented certificates of recognition to these students at the January regular board meeting.
L to R: Luke Theurer, BOE President; Liberty Palmer, Alaina Resendez. Not shown, Carolyn Culp.
