Students at Ruth Clark will have Monday folders in which they will bring home important papers and any paperwork that needs to be signed. Please be sure to check the student’s backpack each day, but especially on Monday and return the folder on Tuesday.
To ensure the safety of our school children, everyone must sign in at the office and get a visitor’s pass.
School hours are 8:20 a.m. – 3:45 p.m.
Because there is no supervision for students, unless your child is enrolled in latchkey, they are not to be in the building before 7:55 a.m.
If you bring your student to school, please park in the marked parking spaces. The circle drive is for buses only! If you are waiting for your child at the end of the school day, please wait at the front entrance for them.

We are currently searching for future KIndergarten students who will be 5 on or before August 31, 2014. We invite parents of those students to attend an informational meeting regarding All Day Kindergarten and pre-registration for the 2014-15 school year. The district-wide Kindergarten Round-Up is scheduled for April 29, 2014 at 6:30 PM at Prairie Elementary School, 7101 S. Meridian. To pre-register your student, please bring the following information: current immunization records, state certified birth certificate, and proof of residency which would include a current utility bill or a lease/purchase agreement with the parent/guardian's name, address and a current date. It is not necessary for the students to attend. USD 261 Pre-K students do not need to pre-register as they are already in our system. If you have further questions, call any of our Elementary Schools.
April No School Dates: April 18 & 21: No Contract Days
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 - April 16
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.
Accelerated Reader and Math
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
A reminder that school hours are from 8:20 AM - 3:45 PM. There is no adult supervision available for students until 8:05 AM unless you participate in Latchkey services. Thank you for your cooperation on these matters.
