Congratulations to Jacob McCurdy for placing 2nd at State Wrestling!
Sub-state begins tonight
The girls basketball team will be hosting the first round of sub-state on Monday against Marion. The game will begin at 7:00. The girls are the 2 seed. I am currently looking for a group or organization that would be willing to work the concession stand for this one game.
Because the game on Monday is a KSHSAA sponsored event, league and local passes do not work. Tickets prices are set by KSHSAA and are $6 for adults and $5 for students
The boys will be playing at SE of Saline on Tuesday. This game will also be playing at 7:00. They are the 6 seed.
The Junior ROTC is hosting a blood drive on Friday, March 6th. If you would like to sign up to donate blood you can make an appointment in the high school office or call them at 620-257-5114 or you may call 1-800-RED-CROSS

A Reminder For Guests:
As an added safety feature, access control doors have been added to our schools. All doors will be locked during school hours and visitors are asked to enter the building through the front doors. After pushing the entrance button, located by the south front door, visitors will be asked to identify themselves and reason for the visit. All guests must register in the office and wear a visitors badge for the duration of their stay.
