Unfortunately my phone call this evening cut off to some of you at a bad time. I was in the middle of stating we have an employee that was tested for COVID-19 but the results are not back yet. The employee has been away from work beyond the 14 day quarantine period and none of the coworkers have any symptoms. Even if the test comes back positive it is highly unlikely it spread to others associated with the school. We will share more information when it is available.

Be wary of people soliciting you saying they are from, or working with, the school. I understand telemarketing calls showing Central Heights as the caller are being received in the district. As I stated in the call last evening, if the school is involved my name or one the principals’ name will be directly attached. We are not selling bracelets over the phone to raise money for the school. If it isn’t me, one of the principals, or a staff member you know the call is a scam no matter what caller ID says.

Update on COVIN-19 We are receiving further guidelines concerning the pandemic. These guidelines will be updated daily, and since we are on Spring Break I will not post specific information right now, but I will share the link to the KDHE K-12 School guidance website. You can access this and see the latest guidance as it is posted. http://www.kdheks.gov/coronavirus/toolkit/Interim_Guidance_for_Schools.pdf Look for updates from me near the end of the week as we prepare to return to school. The principals have issued some information to specific groups that will likely be affected after the break. (The Juniors and Seniors concerning prom for example.) We will do our best to keep the updates and postings small and manageable. Have an enjoyable break and try to enjoy time away from the public with your family.

The COVIN-19 outbreak is creating significant confusion and concern. After watching webinars with state officials this afternoon, I feel the need to share what I know. As of Noon today, Thursday, March 12, there have been three confirmed cases of COVIN-19 in Kansas, and they were all contracted in other places. There has not been a case of the communal spread of the virus in Kansas at this time. (Those that have it, contracted it somewhere else and then came to Kansas.) The likelihood of Central Heights needing to close is very small. Only the local health department http://www.franklincoks.org/index.aspx?NID=933 or the State of Kansas Department of Health and Environment can order a school closing due to a situation of this nature. There is now guidance stating that individuals that leave the country should check in with their local health department upon their return. The health department will then advise individuals whether or nor they should subject themselves to a self-imposed 14 day quarantine. Central Heights basically begins Spring Break at the end of school today. Students do not return until Monday, March 23. Hopefully by that time things will have settled down and we will have a great run to the end of the year. The best place to stay current is the the Franklin County Health Department website that I linked above. We will not be attempting to stay current while the students are off on Spring Break.

Our 8th grade students took a trip to visit the clients at COF (with the help of Craig Evans) after researching and reading about an adult with an intellectual disability in the short story “Flowers for Algernon”. I (Mrs. Smith) brought out my “good camera” to try to capture the beautiful moments of our students interacting, volunteering, and working alongside these adults while they were performing their job of assembling boxes for CenturyLink. I didn’t realize that one of my settings on my camera was off until I sat down to edit these pictures and saw all of the “noise”/graininess in each and every picture. I was heartbroken at thinking that the pictures wouldn’t ever be able to display the beauty of the day. But then I got to thinking….these pictures are the perfect metaphor for this experience. The students were nervous and a bit apprehensive going into it. Most had never had any interaction with an adult with an intellectual disability. At the end of the experience, when all of the students were told that we needed to head back to the school, the adults were met with the students asking to stay longer and inquiring about when we could go back. What seemed to be something a little uncomfortable and unfamiliar, turned into something full of immense joy, laughter, and friendship. We may have helped them build boxes, but we were the ones who received the most from this experience. My heart will never forget it, and I hope their hearts won’t, either. Enjoy these grainy pictures, and I pray that you can look past the surface-level noise and see the absolute beauty underneath. We have some seriously amazing students at Central Heights.
