Transportation requests for the 2015-16 school year
Students who reside more than 2.5 miles from the attendance center they attend may complete a transportation request any time after July 13, 2015 provided no information on the request will change before the new school year begins.
Transportation requests for students who live less than 2.5 miles from the attendance center they attend (Pay-to-Ride Program) may complete a transportation request at the district office beginning August 12.  Requests will be accepted on a first come, first serve, space available basis. Seat assignments for students living less than 2.5 miles from their attendance center will not be determined until August 17th.  Fees associated with the pay-to-ride program must be paid (a check is preferred, sorry no debit/credit cards are accepted) in order to reserve your space in line for any available seats. 
All persons completing a transportation request must provide proof of residency (driver’s license and a utility bill in their name) at the time the transportation request is submitted.


Studies have shown that children who do not read during the summer experience a loss of reading level. Unfortunately this loss is cumulative, so by the time kids get to middle school, students who do no summer reading could be as much as two years behind students who read over summer vacation!
That’s the bad news, here’s the great news! Children who read and have access to books do not have summer reading loss. In fact they can even grow over the summer, depending on how much they read.

 At their September '12 meeting, the Board of Education approved new policies and procedures for requesting district facilities.
A Facility Use Packet has been developed to help patrons with the proper forms, contact information, and billing procedures.
If you currently use, or plan to use, district facilities, please take a look at the packet to help insure that the proper procedures are being followed. Feel free to print the packet so all the information is readily available.
To reserve a district facility:
  1. Call or visit the scheduling coordinator of the facility you wish to request. For TES, call Carlie Puhr at 913-416-1480. For TMS, call Mark Altman at 913 416-1470. For THS, (except the Chieftain Room) call Brent Smith at 913-416-1460. For the Chieftain Room, call Mary Welsh at 913-416-1460. They will be able to tell you if the facility is available when you need it.
  2. Once you have determined that the facility is available, fill out the Facility Request form and get a signature from the scheduling coordinator or administrator at the appropriate building.
  3. Send the completed and signed form, and insurance waiver if required, to Bill Seymour at the District Administrative Center. Fees will be assessed and you will be contacted about payment to secure the facility.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the building administrator or the District Administrative Center.


If you are the parent or guardian of a student, you can receive SchoolMessenger texts on your cell phone if you don't already. To enroll in the SchoolMessenger texting system:
  • Make sure your cell is listed as the primary phone number in your student's Skyward account. Most non-emergency SchoolMessenger announcements are sent to the primary phone only. (If that is a land line, it will obviously not receive any texts). SchoolMessenger draws its contact information from Skyward, so accurate numbers are critical. For emergencies and school cancelations, all phone numbers are contacted, including the home, cell, primary, and work numbers. That's why sometimes you receive a text and sometimes you don't.
  • Use that cell phone to text Y or Yes to 68453. You should receive a confirmation text within a few minutes.
