To ensure the safety of our school children, everyone must sign in at the office and get a visitor’s pass.

BOE Approves All Day Kindergarten at Every Elementary School
Kindergarten students in Haysville Schools will attend class all day next school year. The Board of Education voted in February to extend the current half-day program to all day. Currently, we have two schools that offer a fee-supported All Day program, which has been a success. Beginning 2014-2015 school year, the district will fund the All Day program for all Kindergarten students.
Sonic Night - Watch for dates in the fall.
Have dinner out between 5 PM and 8 PM and support our school at the same time. Mention Ruth Clark when ordering and a percentage of the sales will be donated to the school.
Hearing and Vision Screenings
All students will have their vision and hearing screened during the school year. The screening will be provided at your child's school and will be at no charge. Should you have any questions or concerns about the screening or would prefer that your child not be screened, you can contact the school or school nurse at 554-2333. Results of the screening will be sent home by the end of the school year and should a concern be identified at the time of testing, the school nurse will contact the parents.
Emergency Safety Interventions Policy
Kansas regulations now require that we provide all parents with notice of policies regarding Emergency Safety Interventions ("ESI''). The State of Kansas policy is available on our website and in our student handbooks. In addition, we will provide a copy of the policy at any time upon request.

Now you can check your child's progress in Accelerated Reader and Accelerated Math from home. Renaissance Learning has released a Home Connect program. Follow this link and use the same log in information your child uses at school. Click Here for HOME CONNECT
