The 2020 Valley Heights Graduation Ceremony has been rescheduled. Given the restrictions we are currently operating under, there is no possible way to hold graduation ceremonies in May unless it was done virtually. We are cautiously optimistic that by moving graduation for the class of 2020 to Saturday, July 25th, beginning at 11:00 a.m., it will increase the likelihood that some of the social gathering restrictions will be released and we will be able to hold graduation ceremonies. While we hope that those ceremonies are more traditional in nature, we must be prepared to adjust the ceremonies to meet any social distancing requirements and crowd size limitations that we are operating under at the time. Hopefully, with some flexibility, we are able to offer the Class of 2020 a traditional graduation ceremony!

Below is a resource shared by the Kansas Department of Education. Especially now with the transition to Distance Learning Plans, things are different. If you are struggling with social-emotional awareness, please reach out to this resource or the school for assistance. Since 1993, Kansas Children's Service League’s Parent Helpline (1-800-CHILDREN) has offered a voice who will listen and empathize with callers’ concerns and provide help with simple questions or complex situations. Information, referrals and support are provided statewide anonymously to parents, relatives, caregivers, youth and professionals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This line is designed to meet the needs of parents and caregivers who feel isolated and frustrated when trying to meet the challenges of raising children. In calendar year 2019 the Parent Helpline answered 1,648 calls. Inquiries can be made via email or text using 1800CHILDREN@kcsl.org. The Parent Helpline is also available as a mobile phone App. This is a free download that can be found by searching The Parent Helpline in either the Android or Apple stores. The App also contains links for Parent Tip Cards on the KCSL website or has simple one touch dialing if you decide you need additional information. Top reasons for calls to the Parent Helpline include basic parenting, child development, behavior management, questions about reporting child abuse and neglect, mental health, legal concerns and information about programs/services. Call the Parent Helpline at either 1-800-CHILDREN or 1-800-332-6378 for resources, referrals and other information.

Hello Valley Heights: Today the Governor suspended school as we currently know it until the end of May. We are receiving guidance from the Kansas Department of Education on how we are to proceed with delivering instruction to our students. The Legislature has also approved for districts to apply for waivers that will mandate two things. 1) Continuous Learning Plans are to be developed and delivered to students. 2) All hourly employees will be paid. The following schedule will apply to Valley Heights schools: March 23 - 27 - Staff will develop instructional delivery methods. NO instruction will be provided this week. March 30th. Instructional delivery methods will be implemented. Please stay tuned for more specific instructions on how we will deliver our Continuous Learning Plans.
