Hutchinson Middle School athletes are back on the mats and court. The Hutchinson Public Schools Board of Education approved middle school activities even when the gating criteria is in the red zone. There will be no spectators, however, when the community is in the red zone. As a result, HMS girls’ basketball is at Maize South at 5 p.m. today while wrestling hosts Prairie Hills at 5 p.m. the Hutchinson High School North Gym On Monday, Nov. 16, HMS-7 and 8 host Salina South at 5 p.m. at their respective schools. Since the Wichita Suburban League, HMS’ new league, splits basketball season, girls play their games prior to Christmas while boys play theirs after the new year. If the change had not been made, girls may not have had a season in 2020-21. The change also will allow for the Hutchinson Middle School Scholars Bowl season that begins in January.
On this Veterans Day 2020, we want to express our deepest gratitude to the women and men who have served this country as soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen. Your service has kept us free. Thank you. #308pride

Remember we start our new modified hybrid learning schedule on Monday.
Dear Hutchinson Public School Staff and Families, Each Friday the Reno County Health Department releases the 14-day PTR (positive test rate) and the 14-day new case average. The data released dictates the gating criteria color we follow for the coming week. COVID-19 in Reno County continues to trend upward. Reno County is in the RED Zone for the week of Oct. 26, 2020. USD 308 schools will be in the remote learning mode all next week. Currently the numbers are: • 14-Day PTR, 10/23 – 21.9% • 14-day New Case Count, 10/23 – 356 cases The Medical Collaboration following the guidelines of the CDC, KDHE and KSDE do not recommend in-person school in the RED zone. We do have verbal approval from KSDE and direction from our Board of Education to work towards bringing small groups of students back. We have been working on a plan to present to our Board of Education on Oct. 26. We need to work together as a community taking measures to decrease our case counts in Reno County, so that we can move our gating metrics to Orange, Yellow or Green. We encourage our teachers, parents, students and their grandparents who live in Reno County to be tested at the Free Community Testing Events. We need our community to take personal responsibility to social distance, wear a mask, wash hands and stay home when they are ill. Reno County Health Order 20-03 has been put into place due to our extremely high case count, high PTR and HRMC Covid-19 positive cases are increasing. This limits mass gatherings to 100 people, this does not include public and private business/school functions. However, social distancing of more than 6 feet is highly recommended at work, and mandated at sporting events and social functions. Sincerely, Mike Folks, Hutchinson USD 308 Superintendent
