USD 308 Parent Enrollment Survey This survey will gather pre-enrollment numbers for our new virtual school as well as traditional schools in USD 308. For the 2021-2022 school year, students have two options for learning: in person or through our new virtual school. See below for more information about the virtual school. Hutchinson Virtual School (HVS) is a part of USD 308. HVS is open to K-12 students who reside in the state of Kansas. Local USD 308 teachers will provide support and instruction through daily online contact with students. In-person instruction sessions can be scheduled as needed. Adults wishing to complete their diploma are also encouraged to enroll. HVS will be open for enrollment soon and will follow the USD 308 calendar. Click on the link below to take the survey. It will ask you a variety of questions for each of your children. We know there will be families who move between now and August. This is just a preliminary indication of numbers and not the actual enrollment process. Thank you in advance for providing this valuable feedback. Please complete the survey by Monday, March 12th. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CZN529P

While we are operating remotely today and Tuesday, we also know there is the chance our electrical providers may do rolling power outages to conserve energy. Evergy has announced it may cut electrical power for anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to bring electrical demand in the region in line with supply. This is what is known as a rolling blackout. If that happens, students and staff may not be able to access the internet for classes during the school day. Should that occur, students will not be counted tardy or absent during that period of time.
