Thank you Ron, Chuck, Scott, and the KVOE family for supporting our students and communities in Southern Lyon County!

Since it's inception in 2016 Bryce and Juli Heitman have been instrumental in the coordination and success of our Honor Flight Program. Serving as our trip doctor and lead nurse, the Heitman's always go above and beyond to ensure all of the Veteran's medical needs are met. They are willing to make accommodations for many medical necessities that could precent some Veterans from wanting to attend an Honor Flight. The Heitman's sacrifice their time, resources, and finances to create a safe and reassuring medical environment for our Veterans while also providing their families peace of mind back home. Bryce and Juli set an incredible example of public service to our communities. We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to Bryce and Juli for their support and service of our nation's Veterans and to the USD 252 Honor Flight Program.

Faculty, Staff, Parents, and Community Members, Construction is moving along and changing daily. At Olpe, only a few areas were not touched by construction/upgrades this summer. Our custodial staff will not have complete access to all areas until August 12. It requires approximately 1 week to clean, prep, wax, and finish tile flooring. We have several areas that are dusty and require extra work before occupancy. Therefore, we will start school Monday, August 26 in all USD 252 attendance centers.
