In an effort to better plan and help staff prepare for your child, USD 444 has decided to have a 2 hour late start on Wednesdays during the month of December. It will be re-evaluated after the next 3 weeks. School will start at 10:10 a.m. with buses running two hours late on December 2nd, 9th, and 16th. The staff appreciates your understanding as we continue in our effort to have students in person and to better plan for remote learners. Breakfast will not be served on these days. A.M. Pre-K class will have the option of attending with the P.M. Pre-K class on these days from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
As most of you are aware the KSHSAA Board of Directors voted to NOT allow fans into the gym for winter competition. The district will continue its effort to advocate for our kids and families. All home games including Varsity, JV, and Jr. High will be live-streamed on the NFHS network. You can subscribe for a yearly fee or a monthly fee, but there is a cost.

1A SUB-STATE VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT, October 24, 2020 at Little River Little River High School is excited to host a Class 1A Sub-State 7-Team Volleyball Tournament on Saturday, October 24th starting at 1:00 p.m. Teams attending include: Canton-Galva, Goessel, Langdon-Fairfield, Little River, Norwich, Pratt-Skyline, Pretty Prairie. The 7 teams will compete for births in the State Quarterfinals at the Group #6 Site on Tuesday, October 27th. Sub-state drawings will take place on Wednesday, October 21st at 10 a.m., and the bracket will be available on the KSHSAA website. ❏ The main entrance and the pass gate entrance will be on the north side. ❏ Admission is $6 for adults and $5 for students K-12th grade and NO PASSES will be accepted per KSHSAA. � ❏ There will be a concession stand available, and a Chick-Fil-A sandwich meal deal will be available. � Sub-State KSHSAA Safety Guidelines Event Attendance ATTENDANCE AT POSTSEASON EVENTS: limited to no more than 50% of the arena/facility capacity. Little River Gymnasium capacity is 1,100. I believe we can stay within the 550 if only teams/fans of teams playing are in attendance. VERY IMPORTANT, fans should not arrive until immediately prior to their team’s scheduled match time. Matches will start no earlier than the scheduled time. Once spectators are done watching participant/team or when they are done competing or eliminated from the event, spectators should leave the facility in a timely manner. This will take great cooperation and communication of all administration and schools competing at the Little River Sub-State. All help is appreciated with following this guideline so that we do not have to limit spectators wanting to support their teams. A bracket with match times will be posted Wednesday, Oct. 21 at kshsaa.org. We will have personnel in place to adhere to the expected KSHSAA attendance guidelines, and this could involve holding spectators outside prior to the start of matches if needed. Masks/Social Distancing • All spectators will be required to wear a mask while in attendance at the event. • At least 6’ of social distancing is to be observed while in attendance. Family members may sit together in a pod but must wear a mask. • Participants may, but are not required to, wear a mask while competing or during warm-up. • When participants are done competing, they will wear a mask while seated on the bench and between matches. • It is the coach’s responsibility to enforce the wearing of masks by their players when not actively participating. • Tournament managers will monitor spectators. Spectators choosing not to wear a mask once admitted will be reminded to wear the mask. Those refusing will be asked to leave the event. • When eating or drinking, masks can be removed, however, masks cannot remain off until the entire beverage is consumed. It is to be worn when not drinking. • Please maintain 6’ social distancing at the concession stand area and when using the restrooms.

Most of the outdoor activities are a little more lenient, yet masking is required in the following areas: entrance, concession area, restrooms, and seating, if not 6' apart. It is quite a challenge for everyone, but we sure want to keep the activities going for our kids. Thanks for doing your part!

USD 444 Food Service Update USDA announced to extend free meals to students through December 31, 2020, or until federal money expires. What does this mean for USD 444 Little River? It means ALL students attending and enrolled in USD 444 Little River will begin to receive free meals, which includes breakfast and lunch, effective Tuesday, September 8, 2020. Additionally, students will have to pay for seconds at the jr./sr. high school. Any student meal account that has an outstanding balance prior to September 8, 2020, will still need to be paid accordingly. Any remote learning students will need to notify the school by 9:00 a.m. if they would like to receive the free meals and will be responsible for picking up the meals at the school that is closest to your residence between 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. District families still need to fill out the free/reduced application because meals after December 31, 2020, or when the program ends, will be charged according to their student meal status. The free/reduced application is also needed on file for families to possibly qualify for free textbook fees and school band instrument fees. This application helps our district receive additional state funding needed to provide resources for our students.
This year there are different guideline expectations when we travel for sporting events and activities. The guidelines will be posted on the Little River School website under NEWS, and the guidelines will also be posted on the Little River Facebook page. We will do our best to communicate these guidelines in a timely manner. Tonight for football at Peabody, there are not any attendance restrictions, but masks are required in certain areas (entrance, concession stand, restrooms) and social distancing is encouraged. Again, please see the website or Facebook for the specific details.

Important message to parents regarding School Closure and COVID-19. https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/623131/MESSAGE_TO_FAMILIES.pdf
With the COVID-19 precautions being taken in our state, there have been several questions about the cancellation of Little River High School Junior Senior Prom. At this time, we are exploring the matter on a day by day basis. Our intention is to allow prom to take place as scheduled, but the safety of our student body is our first concern. If the need arises to cancel or postpone prom due to COVID-19, we will take action as necessary. Parents who are questioning whether or not to order a tux will have to make that decision individually. In this unique circumstance, it has been decided to show some flexibility with the usual prom dress code. It would be acceptable for students to wear nice slacks, a button dress shirt, and tie in place of a tux. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
