USD 249 closed for the remainder of year

At 4:00 today, Governor Laura Kelly announced the closing of all Kansas Schools through the remainder of the school year. With this recommendation as well as our own concern for the safety and well-being of our students and families,  USD 249 Frontenac Schools will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

We understand this brings many questions and concerns from our community.  District Leadership in partnership with the Board of Education have started working through our next steps as a district. 

Here is what we know now: 

  • Spring Break, March 23-27, will remain student and staff time off as scheduled. 
  • The following week, March 30 through April 3, will be a planning week for our staff to implement the plan provided by the Kansas Extended Learning Task Force. 
  • USD 249 will continue to provide meals until March 20 and re-evaluate this again following Spring Break on March 30.
  • USD 249 will make every effort to provide opportunities to our students for continual learning with the guidelines provided by KSDE and KDHE. We will take the needs of every student into consideration moving forward. 

We ask for your patience as we navigate this unprecedented situation and work through additional details. As we have more specifics about what services we will be able to provide for families we will communicate through email, website, and social media.
