Baby and Senior Pictures for Yearbook
The 2014-15 Yearbook staff would like parents of seniors to know about the opportunity to submit a baby picture (taken when they were younger than 2 years old) as well as a senior portrait of their choosing, to be published in this year's yearbook. Parents can also add a congratulatory message or words of wisdom if they choose.
To take advantage of this opportunity, fill out the linked form and return it to the high school with the $35 fee by April 10. Due to the publication deadline, no pictures can be accepted after April 10, but if you're an early bird, you can get a $5 discount and pay only $30 if your form and payment get to the High School by March 13!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact yearbook sponsor David Walker at email@example.com.
Information for Student Athletes
There are a variety of forms and information sheets available to students in grades 7-12 who will be participating in school sports.
- Student Athlete Packet - 2014-15 academic year. For 7-12 grade students who will be participating in inter-scholastic athletics. Contains the Pre-Participation Physical (PPE), Eligibility Checklist, District Substance Abuse Policy, and KSHSAA Concussion and Head Injury Sign-Off Sheet. The packet must be filled out completely and turned in before the student can attend practice.
- Student Accident Insurance Q & A
- Student Accident Insurance Standard Group Plan - this document will help parents understand coverage offered by the insurance policy that covers students during any school-related activity. This is a secondary policy and goes into effect after the family's regular insurance has provided coverage. This policy does not cover KSHSAA activities.
- KSHSAA Activities Plan - this describes the district's athletic policy policy which covers students injured during practice, travel, and competitions of KSHSAA activities. This plan is a secondary insurance policy and goes into effect after the family's regular insurance has provided coverage. It has a $5,000 deductible.
- KSHSAA Accident Insurance - an optional plan to be purchased by families of students involved in KSHSAA activities, covers the $5,000 deductible for the KSHSAA Activities Plan. This plan must be purchased and paid for prior to the first day of practice for the sport in which the student is participating. If parents choose not to purchase this additional insurance, any medical bills as a result of a sports-related injury will be subject to a $5,000 deductible and will not be paid by the district's insurance.
The district offers a variety of calendar options for our patrons.

At their September '12 meeting, the Board of Education approved new policies and procedures for requesting district facilities.
A Facility Use Packet has been developed to help patrons with the proper forms, contact information, and billing procedures.
If you currently use, or plan to use, district facilities, please take a look at the packet to help insure that the proper procedures are being followed. Feel free to print the packet so all the information is readily available.
To reserve a district facility:
- Call or visit the scheduling coordinator of the facility you wish to request. For TES, call Carlie Puhr at 913-845-2290. For TMS, call Mark Altman at 845-2627. For THS, (except the Chieftain Room) call Brent Smith at 845-3042. For the Chieftain Room, call Mary Welsh at 845-2654. They will be able to tell you if the facility is available when you need it.
- Once you have determined that the facility is available, fill out the Facility Request form and get a signature from the scheduling coordinator or administrator at the appropriate building.
- Send the completed and signed form, and insurance waiver if required, to Bill Seymour at the District Administrative Center. Fees will be assessed and you will be contacted about payment to secure the facility.
