Graduation Expected to Continue as Planned
As those of you who are following the weather for this weekend may be aware, severe storms are being forecast during our planned commencement exercises.
At present, we are not planning to alter our schedule in any way as the Kansas ExpoCentre is, in itself, a tornado shelter. If it becomes necessary to
delay the start of our program for any reason, or if other late changes are made, that information will be communicated to you via email and phone calls
through our electronic messaging system; our social media networks including
Facebook; the district website www.usd437.net, and; various
radio and TV media outlets.
Please remain alert to the weather conditions this weekend and the methods through which we will be communicating potential changes in our plans for
Graduation. Your safety is important to us!
