Following is an update on the short term outlook for schools in Kansas: It is recommended that all Kansas schools close for this week through next Sunday the 22nd. Cheney is on Spring Break so we are not currently affected by the closure, but 42% of schools in the state are not on Spring Break. Our facilities will remain empty this week as our maintenance and custodial staff are doing a deep clean. We are to have a longer term outlook/plan presented on Thursday from KDHE and KSDE. As we learn more, we will provide updates. During our time away we ask that everyone do their part by practicing good hygiene and social distancing measures.
All school activities at Cheney USD 268 have been suspended until March 23. There will be no school organized activities and no activity at school facilities.
