We will not be able to make up the Jan 7 MS BB game vs Syracuse. Instead we will travel to Wiley, CO on Jan 18th. Since we do not have school that day and they only have one gym, the first game will be at 1:00 MTN. Their MS is not a part of the CSHAA so they will follow the same policies as KSHSAA. We will play a full A girls/boys, 2 quarters of B girls and a full B boys. Due to CSHAA requirements, the Feb 13 HS game vs Wiley, CO has been moved to Lakin so we will not have to wear masks during play. Games will start at 3:30 CT. We will have to wait until they start practice on Jan 18 to determine if they can play JV/C or not. Both updates have been made to the online calendar.

On Tuesday, October 20th the USD 215 Board of Education voted to suspend health and temperature checks at the start of the school day. After 40 days of school we have learned those checks are of little value in monitoring the health of our students for a variety of reasons. The temperature checks had not identified a single fever and with the onset of cold weather were consistently reading low. The Board concluded it will be more effective to rely on parents to monitor the health of their students and to instruct staff to observe students for signs of illness in the classroom. We urge parents to keep their students home if they are sick and to contact a health care provider if they are exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19. We take the health of our students and the community seriously and are balancing those needs with the needs for students to remain in school. If you have any question regarding this change please contact your building principal.
Due to COVID, KSHSAA has limited attendance for Saturday’s Regional CC here in Lakin. Each school is limited to 4 spectators per runner. With that said, we will not be sending tickets or checking people in. With only 10 schools attending we are confident that we will not exceed the limit and can accommodate a few extra if we do. Also, since it is a KSHSAA post season event, masks will be required even though it is outdoors.
Due to COVID, KSHSAA has limited attendance for Saturday’s Sub State VB in Scott City. Each school is limited to 85 spectators. If you’d like to attend, please contact the HS office to sign up. You have to be on the list to attend. You will be able to pay when you get there. They have also asked that you arrive right before game time and leave immediately after. They will be cleaning between each round of games. MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED!
