​Bus Emergency Evacuation Drills
As per KAR 91-38-9 all school districts must conduct at least one emergency evacuation drill per semester for all students riding a route bus.
Beginning September 22 thru October 10 all bus routes will be completing their drills for the first semester requirement.
Bus drivers will take into consideration weather, number of students riding, and of course safety of the students when determining when their drill will be held.  In order to consider all these factors, any advance notification is difficult.
These drills should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.  If you child’s bus is running late, feel free to contact the district office at 913-416-1400 or the attendance center your child attends to determine if this is the reason for the delay.

Schoolmessenger Texting

A One-Minute Contact Preferences Video for Parents
A powerful new way to stay connected to your student's school or district
If you are the parent or guardian of a student, you can receive SchoolMessenger texts on your cell phone if you don't already. To enroll in the SchoolMessenger texting system:
  • Make sure your cell is listed as the primary phone number in your student's Skyward account. Most non-emergency SchoolMessenger announcements are sent to the primary phone only. (If that is a land line, it will obviously not receive any texts). SchoolMessenger draws its contact information from Skyward, so accurate numbers are critical. For emergencies and school cancelations, all phone numbers are contacted, including the home, cell, primary, and work numbers. That's why sometimes you receive a text and sometimes you don't.
  • Use that cell phone to text Y or Yes to 68453. You should receive a confirmation text within a few minutes.
