CROSS COUNTRY SUMMER CONDITIONING will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays this summer, one session at 6:00 am and a second session at 6:30 am. Pick which works best for you! Student athletes need to meet at the HS track. Required materials include running clothes, a decent pair of shoes to run in and a water bottle. If the weather is bad we will run the halls in the HS. The reason for two sessions is there is a weight training session starting at 6:30 am, so the 6:00 am run time may work better for you if you want to lift weights at 6:30 am. Coming to summer cross country workouts does not mean you are obligated to join the team. Come out and try it and see if you like it

Due to the impending weather overnight and tomorrow morning, it has been decided that Play Day will be at each respective building and not at the high school. Waterville will still be in the morning hours and Blue Rapids in the afternoon. While we are not able to have play day as normal we will be having fun activities for the kids. With this in mind we will not be able to invite spectators in the Waterville building due to limited space however if you would like to spectate at the Blue Rapids Gym for those activities you may do so. Activities at the Blue Rapids building will start at 12:30! A sack lunch will still be provided.

Valley Heights USD 498 is currently accepting applications for an elementary teacher at Blue Rapids Grade School. Valley Heights has a tradition of success in all areas of academics and activities. Through fidelity and rigor, our elementary was named a 2017 Blue Ribbon School for their transformation within the MTSS framework which ensures each individual student's social/emotional and academic needs are met. In 2018 they were named a National Title I Distinguished School for closing the achievement gap for all student groups, one of only two schools in the state of Kansas to be recognized. Most recently, the foundational work to become a Trauma Informed district has been initiated to address the mental health and Social Emotional Learning of our diverse student population. Another goal we are striving to achieve is in creating collaborative teams of community and school representatives to establish relationships and build connectivity between our district, parents and patrons. Valley Heights has an experienced and dedicated staff that is continually looking toward ways to improve and increase student achievement. We are proud of the rich, rural traditions that have created the family environment that ties our two small, but progressive, cities into one district. We are #MustangProud and invite you to visit our website and see all the exciting things happening at Valley Heights! To apply, please follow the following link: https://www.applitrack.com/valleyheights/onlineapp/

It's much more than just Teacher Appreciation Week to me. I have something very important to say about the amazing humans in this picture. In the past nine months I've gotten to know and build a relationship with each and every one of them, and I have the privilege of seeing what those outside of our walls rarely have the opportunity to. The past year has presented challenges that no amount of professional development or college courses could have prepared them for. Yet from day one they have rolled through the changes, embraced the challenges and put our students and their needs before anything else. I've seen them laugh, cry, celebrate and mourn for the students in their care. When confronted with adversity and obstacles they could easily have chosen to grow complacent and bitter, but instead they utilized the opportunity to grow, to learn and to do better. That is exactly what I've witnessed in my short time in USD 498, and I am so proud of these amazing humans. Each of them have a significant role in the success of our students, and each of them deserve much more than a paragraph or two once a year. I'm humbled and blessed by their presence, and I firmly believe that our district is one to be envied because of the individuals within it. The future of Valley Heights is bright folks, and you have every reason to be #MustangProud! Melissa Kennedy Superintendent

Gregory Mather, VHHS class of 1972, volunteered to create a stained glass replica of our logo. He enlisted his friend, Dave DeCamp, to make the lighted display box. The result is a beautiful piece of art. Today it was hung in the VHHS Commons at the high school to be enjoyed by students, staff, alumni, and visitors. A piece of very important information that you may not know is that Greg was the fifth-grader who won the contest to name the new school district we know as Valley Heights! Greg shared a few interesting facts about his time as a Valley Heights student. For the older BRHS grads and the early VHHS grads, Greg still uses the skills and the mechanical drawing set he used in Mr Brychta's mechanical drawing class. Pretty impressive, and surely Mr. Brychta would be pleased! Other interesting facts..... His class was the last class to use the old BRGS before it was razed. The class of VHHS 1972 was the last class to use the old Waterville High School as a junior high. In addition, that class was the last class to use the old Blue Rapids High School buildings. We are so grateful to Mr. Mather for this amazing addition to our high school, and invite you to stop by and take a look at his amazing craftsmanship!

Last Friday, the Valley Heights Student Council provided pizza and pop to the high school staff. They also shared the following message, read to the staff by Catherine Toerber. Thank you Student Council for the kind gesture and heart felt words. “Where your talents and needs of the world cross; there lies your vocation.” -Aristotle. "As I read this quote, I realized it does not fail to represent each and every single teacher, coach, para, janitor, cafeteria worker, counselor, secretary, principal, or superintendent here at Valley Heights. The talent in this room alone, is beyond measure. It takes a special kind of person to be able to connect with the diverse and special personalities that you encounter every single day. It takes a special type of person to come to their job everyday and wear a bright smile everyday after getting a few hours of sleep, or having a rough morning, but you guys do it. It takes a special type of person to give young people a basic education before taking on the real world, but you guys do it. I don’t think that any of us students say thank you enough for that. The teachers and staff here at valley heights are really the best of the best. Every single student here is so lucky to have mentors like you all. If you haven’t heard it today, or any other day, I would just like to say, thank you. Thank you for being people that change lives. Thank you for being a solid rock for people that don’t have that type of foundation at home. Thank you for showing up everyday with a positive attitude even when the outside world may be trying to tear you down. Thank you for giving young people skills that are needed to survive in the real world. Thank you for using your talents to meet the needs of the world. Thank you for being teachers. This world needs more selfless, kindhearted people like you, but I am glad that Valley Heights was lucky enough to get all of you. So many lessons have been learned here at Valley Heights, and that goes beyond the lessons over WW2, or the lessons about the biology of a plant, or the lessons over the history of rock and roll, you guys teach life lessons. Your talent reaches beyond the needs of the world, your talent meets the needs of each and every individual student. You guys are crazy awesome and I cannot express how thankful Stuco and I feel to have such great staff here at Valley Heights. So thank you again for being so talented and amazing. There aren’t enough words to thank you all enough. You all have made a difference in many different lives, and we are beyond lucky to have you all."

USD 498 COVID-19 Update: We are very excited to have our Junior/Senior High School students back in the building today! In looking at our current COVID-19 data, it is easy to see that our numbers have dropped significantly and our percentage of quarantined students is back within a very manageable range. What we have learned throughout the course of this semester is that the spread is NOT happening in our schools. This is a testament to our teachers and staff and their diligence in following the recommended protocols, as well as keeping our facilities clean and sanitized. Thank you for doing your part by refraining from social gatherings, wearing masks and maintaining a safe social distance. After a much needed Thanksgiving break, we are glad to be back with our students and are hopeful for a successful conclusion to the first semester!

Good Morning Valley Heights! With the increase of positive COVID-19 cases we need to be more diligent with the the types of mask and proper mask wearing. The proper placement of a mask is to cover both the nose and mouth. We will no longer allow neck gaitors or bandanas to be worn, as for most of those are NOT 2ply. The approved mask are procedural mask, surgical mask, KN95, N95 or mask with 2 layers of washable, breathable fabric. If you do not have one of the approved masks or questions please feel free to email me at: jvathauer@valleyheights.org Thank you for your compliance!

USD 498 COVID-19 Update: Effective November 16, 2020, the Marshall County Health Department announced Updated Contact Tracing and Exclusion of Contacts in a low risk school setting. What this changes for our district quarantine protocols is summarized here: Wearing of Masks Exclusion Protocol Mask wearing has been shown to be an effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Individuals who are wearing masks and are in close contact (6 feet for 10 minutes or more) with an infectious individual wearing a mask are considered low risk for contracting COVID-19. Because schools have policies and monitoring capabilities for mask wearing, Marshall County Health Department does not recommend excluding students and staff who are close contacts of a COVID-19 positive individual, as long as masks were being worn correctly (covering nose and mouth) and in what is otherwise considered to be a low risk exposure. In those situations, quarantine of close contacts would not be required. Individuals who were unmasked within 6 feet for 10 consecutive minutes or more or participated in a high-risk activity with a COVID-19 positive individual during their infectious period, or who were directly exposed to respiratory droplets/excretions for any amount of time, will be excluded for 14 days from their last interaction with the individual. I have also attached the Health Department Risk Exposure definitions. This means that proper and consistent mask wearing DOES make a difference, and it will significantly reduce the number of students in our district placed in quarantine IF MASKS ARE WORN CORRECTLY AND WITH FIDELITY! If you have any questions about this information, or any other district matters, please feel free to contact me at the district office. Thank you! Melissa Kennedy Superintendent of Schools

USD 498 COVID-19 Update: I have included below an open letter from the Kansas COVID Workgroup for Kids. I can assure you that I agree with the message it shares. In analyzing the positive cases in our district, the heart of the outbreak within our school is from positive direct contacts outside of our buildings. Our teachers and staff have done an outstanding job of keeping students safe in our buildings ~ mandatory masks, frequent hand washing, exceptional sanitation and social distancing. We are following the protocols necessary to prevent the spread of this virus from within! We want nothing more than for our students to be with us in our buildings each and every day. We know remote learning is not best for kids, and that segregation from teachers and peers is hard on their social emotional well-being. Quarantines, contact tracing, serving and delivering lunches, staff shortages, remote learning , etc. Our system is being taxed in ways that are unprecedented, and the toll on both our physical and human resources is unparalleled. We need your help. We want our students back on November 30! They need us, and we miss them! Our behaviors over the next two weeks will determine how successfully we can make it through the remainder of the semester. Please take extra precautions for you and your family's health. Stay healthy, stay safe and stay home! Melissa Kennedy Superintendent of Schools

USD 498 COVID-19 Update: This morning, Thursday, November 12, we received word that two Waterville Elementary students have tested positive for COVID-19. Our district health nurse, with assistance from the Marshall County Health Department, did the appropriate contact tracing. All families have been notified and those with direct contact have been placed in quarantine. At this time our district has now had 27 positive cases. We ask that you continue to practice health department protocols of mask wearing, social distancing and frequent hand washing. Our goals remain the same, to keep our elementary schools open and return our middle school and high school students back to on-site learning. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the district office. Melissa Kennedy Superintendent of Schools

USD 498 COVID19 Update: As of this morning, Wednesday, November 4 at 9:00 a.m., our district has a total of 20 positive COVID cases. Currently all of these are among the students and staff of the VHHS building. Our elementary buildings, although affected by quarantine due to positive contacts, remain COVID free. Our primary goal at this time is to continue on-site learning for our elementary buildings, as we know remote learning is even more challenging for elementary students and their families. Please help us! We ask that you diligently wear your masks and practice social distancing. If you or a household member exhibits symptoms of COVID19, please contact the Marshall County Health Department and communicate transparently with our school health nurse. Contact tracing is essential at this time in containing the spread in our district and community, and we want to extend a huge thank you to those that are abiding by the isolation and quarantine guidelines. Let's continue to do our part in keeping our students and staff safe! I will continue to update bi-weekly to ensure transparency and that our parents and patrons stay informed.

There has been a significant rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in our junior and senior high school over the course of the past few days, which results in even more students being placed in quarantine. The district administration, along with the Marshall County Health Department, has made the difficult decision to enter into a remote learning environment for our middle school and high school students effective immediately. These students will return to school on-site on Monday, November 30th. It is important to note that this is strictly the VHHS building, and DOES NOT affect the elementary schools, as both the Waterville and Blue Rapids grade schools will continue to operate as usual. Lunches/breakfasts will be available for pick-up between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. at the Blue Rapids gym or the south door of the Waterville Grade School. Please go to the location in the town in which you reside. Delivery is possible if you are quarantined or lack the means for in-person pick-up by calling the high school or district office. All extra curricular activities, including athletics are postponed until further notice. We will continue to keep you informed and appreciate your understanding as we navigate through these challenging decisions.

There will be no transportation at 5:30 when CRU dismisses. Please fill out a form for each student who will be attending.

Good morning Valley Heights Junior/Senior High School students and parents. As we begin the 2020 school year, we are in unprecedented times with the COVID virus. These times are requiring safety measures that no student, parent, teacher, or administrator have wished for. With these safety measures, all changes will continue to be re-evaluated and modified to maximize the safety of our students while ensuring students continue to receive the best educational opportunities available. Please review a few of the procedural changes with your child prior to school beginning. Teachers will give more details to the students during the first day of school. Masks will be required at all times when social distancing can not happen. Students are encouraged to enter the building after 7:45 a.m. and must report to their first period classroom. If gym bags or musical instruments are needing to be dropped off in their respective areas, students should drop them off and immediately report to their 1st period class. Breakfast will be available during the 1st period class. Students in grades 7, 8, & 9 should enter through the front main door. Students in grades 10, 11, & 12 should enter through the back door by Mrs. Coon's room. If you are riding with siblings, students should enter the door with the oldest sibling. Temperature checks and hand sanitizer will be required upon entry into the school. Between each class, students need to report directly to their next class period. For a full look at the VH Reopening Plan, please visit the school's website. Finally, the first day of school will be a 'Purple' day. So please report to your P1 class. Friday will be a grey day.

Clarification on face mask... If your child chooses to wear their own they have be double layered. If they want to wear a gaiter, like the one pictured in earlier post, it has to be doubled layered as well. So basically any mask that they want to wear it has to have 2 layers. Sorry for the confusion. If any further questions feel free to contact to me at jvathauer@valleyheights.org

Greetings Valley Heights Families! As many of you may have heard, Laura Kelly, the Governor of Kansas announced yesterday an executive decision to postpone the first day of school until after the Labor Day holiday. Although this does delay our actual return date, we are still planning on getting our enrollment and preparatory work started. Under the current conditions, this planning and preparation for back-to-school looks very different than it has in years past. As our country, state, county and communities continue to navigate the complexities of the COVID19 pandemic, USD 498 is in the process of developing an educational plan that addresses the health and safety of our students, staff and families. Although reopening our schools this fall is not without risk, we also know that prolonged school closure, the loss of access to social/emotional support and connection, and inconsistency of supportive services are significant losses for our students. Therefore, we are excited to share that we will allow options for student learning as the school year begins. The Fall 2020 Learning Options are as follows: Option One: On-Site Learning Safety guidelines that address the health and well being of our students, staff and families will be strictly adhered to and protocols will be in place for day-to-day operations including: Transportation Medical/Health Classrooms Common Spaces Transitions Extra and Co-Curricular Activities Facilities Food Service All district leadership, certified and non-certified staff are working diligently to craft a plan that addresses each of the above components. Included in this planning conversation are the Marshall County Health Department and Marshall County Emergency Management, with adherence to the recommendations put forth by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, as well as the Kansas State Department of Education. This comprehensive plan, once completed and reviewed, will be shared with all parents, students and stakeholders. Option Two: Remote Learning Virtual learning that will be structured under the following mandates: Students and parents will complete a daily log of engagement and activities completed that must be submitted to the school district. Students will be assessed on the same standards and competencies as onsite students. Students must have a daily and/or per class period connection with teachers. Each day/class period that a student does not participate online, they will be marked absent. State and local truancy guidelines will be adhered to. A Remote Learning commitment is a minimum of one academic quarter. Options for remote learning will be reevaluated each quarter. We ask that you consider your options carefully as you make the best decision for the educational and social emotional needs of your child(ren) and family. The deadline for the Fall 2020 Learning Option decision is Monday, August 3rd. Please submit one response per family. You may utilize any of the following options for submission: An embedded link in the email you receive. Fall 2020 Learning Option Form (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfV3ZggGkH8yiwQWSmzRD6jHQu55cmVqtTRCdMoSp2lnrjw7w/viewform?usp=sf_link) Valley Heights USD #498 website Valley Heights Facebook page Enrollment For the safety and convenience of our parent community, we are offering an online enrollment process this year. Enrollment will officially open on Monday, August 3rd and close on Friday, August 14th. A link will be sent via email and shared on our district website the morning of August 3rd. Should you prefer to enroll in person, our building secretaries will be available in their respective offices on those days to accommodate you. Should you choose online enrollment, invoices for fee payment will be sent out by your building secretary or you can pay online. Students new to the district will need to enroll in person at the appropriate attendance center, or at the District Office at 121 E. Commercial in Waterville. As always, we are here to answer your questions and hear your concerns. Sincerely, Melissa Kennedy Superintendent
