IN THE NEWS
Thank you to parents at USD 509 and the congregation of Grandview Methodist Church in Winfield for the donations of clothing to our school nurse to be used for student emergencies at school.
The Nest Now Has a Take-Out Menu
Check out the new Nest take-out menu on their page under the Athletics/Activities tab on the USD 509 website. They have a great selection for when you don't feel like cooking!
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.
