USD 331 will run a regular school schedule today (Thursday, Feb 13, 2020). It is very cold with windchills that you should limit being outside and certainly bundle up. Driving your kids to school instead of walking would be a good idea. As always parents- If you are uncomfortable sending your child to school due to the temperatures, you should use your best judgment & keep them home. We will be open today. **remember- we do not have school Tomorrow- Feb 14 due to parent/teacher conferences and no school Monday, due to Teacher Inservice. Bundle Up!!
This is a repeat but- Both Kingman High & Norwich High graduation ceremonies are on SATURDAY, May 9, 2020 (not on a Sunday like we’ve done for many years).
