Students head back to school


By Travis Mounts, TSnews

Even though temperatures in the 90s and 100s tell us we’re still in the throes of summer, school calendars are telling us it is time for students to return to class.
Goddard is the first district in the TSnews coverage area to send students back to school. Most students in Goddard Public Schools are going back to school this Thursday. There are some staggered starts in younger grades, with students with last names starting with the letters A-L going back Thursday, and those with M-Z having their first days on Friday.
Other students will return to class next week. Cheney students will begin school on Tuesday, except for the kindergarten students who will return next Thursday. The district will hold kindergarten screenings Aug. 16-17.
Haysville Public Schools will see most students return next Wednesday. That group includes students from pre-kindergarten through sixth grade, and high school freshmen. All other middle school and high school students will return next Thursday.
Students in Argonia, Clearwater, Conway Springs and Garden Plain go back to school next week on Thursday.
