The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt by the heart. -- Helen Keller

If you have questions or concerns, contact Gina Keirns by email at gkeirns@usd261.com.

Box Tops for Education

Please help us out! Just clip the box top and send it to school with your child. Tri-City earns approximately $100 a year that we use to help purchase education tools for our students and fund activities and field trips. Visit www.boxtops4education.com for a list on on-line shopping that earns box top points.

Coca-Cola Products

Tri-City is eligible for the point program through Coca-Cola. We will be able to enter the codes that are found on Coke products into an "online bank" and collect points to earn items for our school. The codes are found inside the lid of bottles or inside the boxes of cardboard containers. Please send these items to school with your child.

Upcoming Events

Tri-City Day School is attended by students from the Haysville, Derby, and Mulvane public school districts. This school was established to meet the diverse, unique emotional and mental health needs of their K-12 students.

Tri-City Day School offers four educational classrooms focusing on core and non-core courses through direct teacher instruction and the use of computerized curriculum. Most students also have physical education available one to two times a week at an off-site location. All classrooms are staffed with certified special education teachers and behavior technicians. A full time licensed practical nurse (LPN) is also available on site for students’ needs. Some students receive additional support during the school day through agencies such as the Mental Health Association (MHA), Behavioral Link, COMCARE, and other community based agencies that support students with disabilities.

In addition to traditional core curriculum, students receive group counseling under the supervision of a Licensed Masters Social Worker for 180 minutes per week. Also available to students is individual counseling which is provided on site by an LSCSW in private practice. Both Medicaid and some individual insurance are accepted by this provider. Other additional related services may be included in a student's school day as determined by the student's Individual Education Program (IEP) team. All students are enrolled into their home school district in Derby, Haysville, or Mulvane and then referred to Tri-City Day School through the sending local school district. All students have been evaluated and categorized for special education services and all lesser restrictive settings were not successful for the students as determined by the Individual Education Program (IEP) team before a placement is considered.

When the world says give up,
hope whispers, "try one more time."
