    example of cutouts
    South Haven Senior Class of 2021 Fundraiser
    In an effort to compensate for the loss of concession stand profits, the seniors are selling cardboard cutouts of faces so our athletes will have more fans in the stands. It will be a 24 inch cutout of your face. It’s $30 for one or $50 for two. Please have your picture and money submitted to by December 4th. You can send or bring the money to the school. The pictures will be up for the Junior High and High School home basketball games. Please support our seniors and athletes!! ** Above is an example but ours will only be faces** 

    Parents, please sign Assurance letter

    As part of the Kansas State Department of Education requirements for schools offering remote or remote/hybrid learning, we are required to have on file, for each student, a parent signed form called “District Remote Learning Assurance Letter.” This letter is required from every parent in case the school must go to remote learning.

    Please click on the link below to complete the form. There is room for multiple students from a family on each form.

    Thank you for your assistance with this matter.
