    Sunflower Summer 2022

    The Kansas Department of Education is once again providing families with the opportunity to experience several Kansas attractions at no cost from late May through early August! Sunflower Summer is a collaborative effort among KSDE, KU's Center for Public Partnerships and Research (KU-CPPR), and Greenbush.

    Sunflower Summer 2022 will feature free access to 87 different venues, 15 FREE Greenbush Summer Camps, a FREE 3-Day Boy Scout Camp, and 5 Bonus Events across Kansas! 38 of the venues are "ticketed" meaning there is typically an admission fee, but that is covered for families through the Sunflower Summer program. Accessing these free events will be easy! There is an app for iPhone or Android that is nearly ready...when it is, just download the app, plan your day trips, and go!

    Letter to Parents about spending Covid funds

    Every school district in Kansas has received grant money from the federal government due to the pandemic and its effect on our students and the safety of our students. As a part of the grant, our district is required to contact several organizations along with district parents and students to explain how our district intends to spend the money on COVID related items and services, and how students will benefit from these expenditures. Read the complete letter and please submit any comments to Dorsey Burgess, Superintendent of USD 509.
