The Crime Stoppers in Schools program in Sedgwick County has created the Speak Up! program, which allows students, staff, and parents the ability to send anonymous tips through a secure website, smartphone app, or by phone to keep their schools safe. All messages are encrypted and routed through secure servers to protect the sender. The user is given an alias and a unique ID before the message is sent to the Speak Up Coordinator for USD 261. This allows the user and the coordinator to have a two-way dialog without revealing the sender’s identity. The funding for the service is provided by Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County.
Students are required to have their ID cards for lunch and Media Center purposes. There is a $5 fee to replace an ID card during the school year.
Replacement ID's are available on the Marketplace in the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

Haysville West Middle School has once again been recognized by the Flippen Group to receive a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase SchoolsTM award for the 2021-2022 school year.
Through the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards, the Flippen Group recognizes and celebrates campuses that go the extra mile each day, building an environment where students and staff feel safe and connected. Capturing Kids’ Hearts campuses across the country were considered for these awards based on the following criteria: 1) nomination based on observation by Flippen Group personnel, 2) level of implementation of Capturing Kids’ Hearts processes by all staff as measured by online surveys, and 3) data demonstrating that Capturing Kids’ Hearts has made a significant improvement in attendance, discipline, climate/culture, or academics.
A Flippen Group team visited each nominated campus to gather additional quantitative and qualitative data, and to interview students, teachers, administrators, and parents. They used a matrix of key measurements to gather information during the campus walk-through. Finally, an additional survey was conducted to collect feedback regarding the perceived climate and culture of the campus and its conduciveness to learning. Following this visit, the selection team reviewed all accumulated data and selected the campuses to receive the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards.
We are asking for your help. There have been several close calls in the parking lot where students/staff and patrons have almost been hit by cars. Please DO NOT park in the driving lanes before or after school, even if you are sitting in your car. The driving lanes have been totally blocked due to drivers parked three cars wide and parking the wrong direction on both sides of the driving lane. The only time you should be in our driving lanes is if you are entering or leaving the HWMS premises. When you are waiting for your child please park in a marked parking stall in the lot. If we ALL follow these procedures, traffic will flow in an orderly fashion and more importantly we will keep our kids safe in the parking lot.
