The Central Heights School District would like to wish Mr. Brian Spencer a happy retirement! Mr. Spencer has had a major impact on education in the State of Kansas in his 33 years of education. The five years leading the Vikings have been no different as he has helped us overcome many obstacles during his tenure. Mr. Spencer mentioned the most memorable moment at Central Heights was the water test over Christmas Break of 2017. Mr. Spencer will be forever remembered for his infectious laughter and “good mornin’” during any part of the day. Thank you, Mr. Spencer, for all that you do, for showing us how to enjoy each day and always pushing us to do what is best for kids! Enjoy your retirement!

Congratulations to Mrs. Jean Nilges on her retirement from Central Heights. Mrs. Nilges has worked with a vast number of children over many years and we extend a deep and gracious “Thank You” to her! Mrs. Nilges holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Education from Mid-America Nazarene. She has 42 additional credit hours, mostly in the field of reading. Mrs. Nilges taught at the Heidi and Peter Preschool for seven years, Head Start in Lawrence for one year, was the Director at the Daycare Center for two years, a paraprofessional in Ottawa for two years and a substitute teacher in Ottawa for 10 years. She has spent the last 15 years at Central Heights Elementary. At CHES she taught third graders for four years, prekindergarten children for two years, kindergarten students for 1 year, and then eight years as the Reading Recovery and Title I Reading teacher. Getting to know her students and their families, watching the students grow academically, and seeing them grow up is something she remembers fondly. She has stayed in contact with many of her students over the years. Mrs. Nilges remembers learning from and about her co-workers. She loves the family atmosphere. “It is great how we pull together for each other when we need to. I will never forget building a milk jug igloo in the library with Mrs. Smith.” She has been married to Lynn Nilges for eight years. Together they have 16 grandchildren. Their large family has had some great celebrations. They are looking forward to many more to come. Mrs. Nilges will be spending more time with her father who is in a nursing home facility. The Nilges’ hope to do some traveling and spend time on special projects around the house including planting lots of beautiful flowers. Mrs. Nilges states she will miss her very dear friends at CHES. If things ever get back to normal, she would like to do some substitute teaching. The CHES staff would like that too, Mrs. Nilges!

The Central Heights School District would like to wish Mr. Michael Carey a happy retirement! Mr. Carey has been wandering the hallways with his side secured belt and a pencil behind his ear for 26 years. But has served in education for a total of 42 years. Teaching business, theology and the best computer science teacher this side of the Mississippi, Mr. Carey has also had an impact by coaching football, women’s basketball, men’s and women’s track as well as many other duties such as CTE coordinator. Mr. Carey has thoroughly enjoyed his time at Central Heights as both a student and a teacher, but those of us within the district have some very distinct memories that stick out with his dry sarcastic humor. Most notably, during inservice confessing his long forgotten (high school) crush on another staff member. Mr. Carey has shown passion for education and the Viking Community and we will truly miss the laughter he provides each day. We wish him the best of luck as he has more time with family including his Wife Deb, Son Chris, Daughters, Ashley and Malissa as well as five grandchildren. Mr. Carey plans to stay active within the Central Heights School system and community.

Hello community partners, I'm writing to ask your help in spreading the word - Elizabeth Layton Center is open for business and here to help! We are able to offer safe options for behavioral health treatment during this time of COVID crisis. I think many people in our community are struggling right now with anxiety, depression, substance cravings and other behavioral health issues. Our world is filled with unprecedented stressors and losses. However, access to ELC services has never been lower than the past month. My concern is that people may be unaware that ELC is open for business, and that we are able to offer treatment options that are both safe and effective. ELC now offers behavioral health services through Telemedicine (e.g. telephone and televideo methods.) This is very convenient for families, and allows for safe and effective treatment of mental health and substance use needs. New patient admissions, Crisis services, Therapy, Medication management, Peer Support, Case Management and Psychosocial services can all be access via Telemedicine! We also continue to offer face-to-face services (using COVID precautions) for those who are unable to participate by telephone or televideo. For safety reasons, our doors are now locked, but the public can still access our services if needed. They can phone first, or if they arrive on site our compassionate staff will walk them through the process. As always, community residents without insurance are eligible for sliding scale fee based services. Crisis services remain available 24/7.

Class of 2020: Adriana Casida is the daughter of David and April Kobel. During her time at Central Heights High School, Adriana participated in Honor Flight, Drama Club, and Art Club. Adriana is planning to attend a College or University but is still deciding which one and what she would like to study. She is a motivated student who wants to make the best decision for her future. If Adriana could offer some advice to the underclassmen it would be not to fight for people who wouldn’t lift a finger for you. Be proud of yourself because the opinions of others don’t define your reality. Overthinking will only lead to sadness. You got this; it may seem stressful at times but it will all work out! Congratulations Adriana! We cannot wait to see what you will accomplish!

He will always cherish watching the scores come up at the finish line, singing “We Are The Champions”, and adding to the trophy case. The advice Alex would give to underclassmen is to be who you are! Don’t spend your time being someone you are not. Find your group of friends that have similar beliefs and goals so you can be your true self. Congratulations Alex! You are going to accomplish great things!

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.
