Special Education Parent Survey:
Recently, 1,800 Kansas parents of students with disabilities were randomly selected by the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) to complete an online survey. The survey is 10 questions and the responses are used to help guide efforts to improve services and results for children and families receiving special education services in Kansas.
If you are a parent who received one of the 1,800 orange postcards, and haven’t gone online to complete the survey, please do so prior to June 1st. If you have questions, please contact KSDE at 785-296-7454. Thank you for your sharing in this important process.

Spring is here so just a reminder of the KH Dress Code:  All shorts, dresses & skirts must be longer than tip of fingers when arms are held down at the side.  No bike shorts unless covered by proper clothing. No see-through clothing. No tank tops or halter tops.  Sleeveless shirts must cover to the edge of the shoulder AND armholes must fit tightly around the arms.  Necklines must not reveal cleavage.  All shirts must be long enough to tuck in or if worn out – cover waistband of pants.  Shirts will be considered too short if they expose flesh while the student is sitting or walking.  Shirts must have complete backs-no holes, cutouts, or strings.  Overall straps must be fastened correctly over the shoulder.
