Good evening, Herington schools have established a COVID-19 team of individuals consisting of administrators, our school nurse, board of education members, parent representatives, and the Dickinson County Health officer. This team will meet every other week to review our County metrics related to COVID-19. They will make a determination about which learning format to make available to all students for the following 2 weeks. The first meeting took place last evening and it was determined that U S D 487 may continue to operate in the “green”. This means that preschool through 12th grade students will be able to attend in person for the next two weeks. Learning format information does not affect families that have chosen remote learning, they may continue to be remote learners. Specific information regarding changes in activities or other expectations related to learning formats can be found on the Kansas Schools Gating Criteria document that was shared with your family at our Stop, Drop, and Roll event. A digital copy can be located on our website under the documents tab of the menu. Learning format information will be shared using this automated calling system, the school web page, and the U S D 487 Facebook page each time the COVID-19 team meets. In the case of a learning format change from in-person to hybrid, or remote for all students, staff members will work to ensure students have the necessary materials to continue learning in the “new” format.

After a year of planning, HMS & HHS were able to implement their redesign prototype. Students have been attending Advisory/Homeroom daily since last week, but today they spent the afternoon learning about Project Based Learning and Flex time. PBL is a student-driven project that will require students to think about Real-World topics. They will plan, research, and implement these projects on a timeline they create. When they finish, part of this process is to make their project available for community viewing. The schools also have included what we call FLEX time -- this is a time for students to continue PBL, receive help from teachers, attend club meetings, or take part in presentations. We are excited to see what happens as the year progresses. It's a great day to be a Railer!

USD 487 coaching staff would like to give a shoutout to our athletes for adjusting to what we need to this summer to continue to train and prepare for what we hope is normal soon. All athletes are doing a great job of attending weights and practices during this time. This quote in the picture fits us well and we talked about it this morning. Our kids are doing a great job of training through the time of drought (hardship) to be ready for the harvest. What great life lessons being learned right now and adjusted to by our kids. #railerproud

NEWS ON SUMMER WORKOUTS! We apologize for late notice on that but if there has been anything we have learned the last couple months we have to be able to go with the flow. So we have word that we may begin Summer Workouts June 1. This is going to happen in Phases and information will be posted as we know it. What we need to know right now by 4:00 pm tomorrow is who is planning to attend summer workouts the next two weeks. Phase 1 is a time for us to spend with the athlete getting them acclimated to working out again before we get into the weight room. Therefore, June 1st - June 12th will be spent outside in groups of 9 doing workouts. High School Football 6:30-7:30 am, All High School Girls 7:45-8:45 am, and MS Girl/Boys and High School Boys not playing football will be from 9:00-10:00 am. The next two weeks we will be having the first two sessions Monday-Friday. Junior High will only be Monday-Thursday. What we need now is a list of who plans to start workouts on Monday. It is important to know that you need 10 days in before you can be in the weight room. Therefore, please plan to commit to the next 10 days of outside workouts. We will take the list and break it into groups this weekend. Please check back often to see the group, location and coach you are with. We will also post important guidelines on how we plan to social distance as we go. Please open the following link and sign up. More information to follow. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/196eGhXZ1KKtBc8Bh36X-KgXxthMq15ePuDsXPZ5p598/edit?usp=sharing

This week we start our Senior Spotlight with Kody White. Kody is the son of Tracy Thiel and Goerge Thiel. During high school he was involved in Drama Club and FFA. His future plans are currently undecided. His favorite high school memory was in October when he witnessed Mr. Hirsch drive a little train. “My favorite class to be in was probably my 5th hour since we all would go and help stock the concession stands. Another reason why I looked forward to my 5th hour was because Mrs. Beye would always try to help prepare us for the future. She would take the time out of her day to guide us and make sure that we are all not alone in this.” The hardest part of not completing his senior year at school is, “missing out on all the fun activities with the last couple months of school we had left. We will not have prom, after prom, senior prank, clubs, sports, ect. The one thing that hurts the worst of all would be walking across the stage, getting my diploma, and looking out at the crowd knowing I made it.” He would like underclassmen to know not to mess around on your last year. “You never know it might come back and bite you in the butt.” Congratulations Kody! #railerproud

Our final senior spotlight this week is on Senior Adrina Volkman. Adrina is the granddaughter of Russel and Linay Jones. While in high school she was involved in Volleyball, Track, Softball, FCCLA, HOSA, Yearbook, Student Council, Prom Committee, and Senior Class President. Her future plans are to attend Emporia State University and her major is undecided. When asked her favorite high school memory she stated, “definitely anytime during volleyball season playing with my teammates and then taking our WSL medals home for 1st.” Her favorite classes are Mrs. Mein’s cooking class. “Yes for the food but she is very much like our mom. If she saw we were having a bad day she would talk to you and see what was wrong or if you’re me and you get food on your shirt she would always have a couple extra shirts in her closet that she would let you have.” The hardest part of not being together in school right now is not being able to walk with her class and being around all of them for their lasts and not being able to make more memories. Adrina would like to share with the underclassmen, “enjoy your days being in High School because it really does go fast, go out and spend the time with your friends, be involved, and make all the high school memories that you can before it's over.” Congratulations Adrina! #railerproud

Our Senior Spotlight is on Dakota Swader. Dakota is the daughter of Stacey and Mike Swader. During high school she has been involved in Volleyball, Basketball, Softball, Track, HOSA and FFA. Her future plans are to take a semester off and continue to work to be independent. “I want to be able to support myself before I head off to college.” Her favorite high school memory “ is probably basketball season. Coach T and Coach K made my transition to herington easier because I had a practice that I knew would challenge me but would be able to have fun at the same time. Learning lessons about life and basketball. Family is important and very needed in life.” Her favorite core class was history because there was always a fun and eventful time. Mr. Hirsch knew when someone needed some cheering up. When asked what she missed most about not physically being in school she said, “not being able to walk the stage, go to any track meets, go to my senior prom, or create any more memories with friends during school.” Her message to underclassmen is “live your high school years to the fullest because you never know if or when you will miss an activity that you wish you could go and do. Don’t try to grow up too quickly!” Her message to her teachers is “I want to thank the teachers that have been there for me throughout the years. I appreciate all you have done for me. Thankful for all the memories I have been able to make, good and bad, they have made me a better person. I would also like to thank my family for helping and supporting me through the years. I love you!” Best of Luck Dakota! #railerproud

Senior Spotlight features Makayla Stiles. Makayla is the daughter of Dustin and VerNonda Stiles. While in high school she has been involved in Volleyball, Basketball,Track, Softball, Tree Huggers, Salina Area Tech, Gaming Club, Drama, FFA, HOSA, blood drives, vocal, homecoming queen candidate, and a Beta Organization volunteer. After high school she said, “I plan on continuing my education on schooling at Salina Area Technical college through the welding program, currently with me already have going I will have my certificate in welding at the end of this year but I am planning on going back to college to take the half of a semester that is needed to get my associates degree in welding.” Her favorite high school memory was decorating floats at homecoming. “Showing our school pride to the rest of the town and as well to give the younger generations something to look forward to doing that is fun when they get into high school.” Her favorite classes in school were culinary arts because she loves to cook, and history. “When Mr. Hirsch came to this school and started teaching it. I loved it because he was able to make me interested in something I used to never like.” The final classes she liked were her shop classes with all of the ag teachers that she has had throughout her time at Herington High School. The hardest part of not physically being in school is, “not being able to complete my senior year would have to be not being able to do my last year of track as well as not being able to make lasting memories with the rest of my class and the underclassmen.” Her advice to underclassmen is, “make memories while you can have fun with everyone in your class and do things you want to. High school year goes by fast, don't be afraid to try something new because who knows you may really enjoy it. Make the memories of your high/middle school years fun and don't take time for granted because at some point later on you're going to wish that you would have worked harder in the things that you didn't but overall make your high/middle school years fun and memorable.” In a final note, “I would like to thank all of the teachers that have helped me through the years from elementary to high school. You have all made an impact on my life and I will never be able to forget it. I'd like to thank my coaches that I have had.You have all made me love sports but have also taught me a lot about teamwork and being able to work well and efficiently with others even if everyone doesn't see eye to eye all the time. Finally I would like to thank the school board for allowing me the chance to go to Salina Area Technical College. It has been an amazing experience and has shown me a lot from my junior year till now you have allowed me to further my education even farther while being in high school. To everyone thinking about going to college while you are in school it is difficult but it is so worth it in the end between the memories made at college and the ones made at high school as well as being taught more about the things that you enjoy doing it is truly and honestly an eye opening experience and I honestly believe that even though I was the one that started going there that I hope many more go. It really is an amazing experience. I was able to go through two years of college and high school as well as doing sports year round while it is difficult it is so worth it it gets a little hectic at times but oh well the memories as well as things that i have been taught at Salina Area Tech has made me an even better person and it will make you as well don't be afraid to take the chance of going.” Congratulations Makayla. #railerproud

Her future plans are to attend ESU to pursue a nursing degree. Lauren’s favorite high school memory is from senior fall homecoming, “building our senior float with all my closest friends, riding on the razors through the parade, giving the football boys speech downtown, and standing on the football field as a queen candidate.” Her favorite classes in school were anything with Ms. Clark. “She has had the biggest impact on me. I love you Ches! <3” What Lauren misses most about being physically in school is, “walking out the front doors not knowing it would be my last time as a student, and not being able to walk across the stage and receive my diploma as all my family watched and cheered for me.” Her message to underclassmen is, “be involved with as many activities as you can, step out of your comfort zone, because I regret not being more involved. Be yourself and don't be afraid to ask for help. Listen to your parents, when they say don't go to that party, DON'T GO TO THE PARTY! Have common sense. Make as many memories as you can with your classmates as you can, they are your family. Sit in the student section, be loud and be proud, go to prom, dress up for spirit week and experience high school, you wont regret it. All in all just have fun!” Best wishes Lauren! #railerproud

The hardest part of not being able to complete his senior year physically is not being able to see everyone, friends and teachers. Lawson’s message to underclassmen is, “don't take the time you have in high school for granted enjoy every moment with your friends because before you know it you will be graduating in the blink of an eye.” He would like to thank all the teachers who have supported him and got him through high school. “It has been a great honor to be around such a great group of people. I will never forget it.” Best of Luck Lawson! #railerproud

Senior Spotlight is on Jacob Howe. Jacob belongs to George and Tracy Thiel (grandparents) Jason Howe (Father) and Michelle Howe ( Step-mother). During high school he has been involved in FFA, Basketball, Football and Track. His future plan is to attend college and become a game warden. When asked his favorite school memory, Jacob said, “when Mr. Bogess's class made the whole school smell like a pine tree and also when Mrs. Vinduska took us to the psychology conference at McPherson College.” His favorite classes in school were weights, welding, creative writing, and psychology. “Getting all your work done and also making sure it’s turned in cause everyone knows how technology works,” has been the hardest part about not physically being in school during this time. Jacob’s message to underclassmen is, “please make your senior year last cause it goes by fast and treasure the memories that you have of high school so when you look back in your later years you can laugh about it to your kids.” Congratulations Jacob! #railerproud

Today’s spotlight is on Senior Kyla Haws. Kyla is the daughter of Stephanie Haws, Brett and Kylie Haws. During high school Kyla has been involved in Cross Country, Volleyball, Track, Cheerleading, Fall Homecoming Queen, FCCLA, HOSA, FFA, Tree Huggers and Student Council. After graduation she plans to attend Emporia State University to major in elementary education. Her favorite high school memories included anytime she was cheering on Friday nights for the football team. “I love getting a touchdown, doing Railer Dance as our wonderful band played and watching the crowd go wild.” Her favorite class was Forensics with Ms. Clark. “No matter what kind of day Ms. Clark was having, she was always someone happy and positive to be around.” The hardest part of not physically being in school is missing out on prom and looking forward to giving graduation invites to friends and goodbyes to teachers. Her advice to underclassmen: “know how important it is to not only finish strong, but start strong as well. Whether it be with grades, or attending events, involve yourself as much as possible to provide the best high school experience for yourself. Go sit in the student section at home games. Go to prom. Dress up for spirit week. Your classmates and friends work hard in these areas, and your support means more to them than you realize. Take the time to give back to others even if it’s in a small way. Make your time matter.” Best wishes Kyla! #railerproud

Our senior spotlight today recognizes Gene Hanson. Gene is the son of Sherrie Hanson and Jeff Casto and J.P. and Brandy Hanson. His plans after high school are to attend Fort Hays State University for Pre-Veterinarian. While in high school Gene has been involved in FFA, FBLA, HOSA, NHS, and Ag Ambassador for Kansas Farm Bureau. His best memory of high school was tailgating the night before the Herington Volleyball Tournament, and the tradition of cooking breakfast the morning of the tournament. His favorite class in high school was Homeroom/Seminar because he felt he became so close to the people in the class. When asked what he missed most about the fact of not physically being in school, his response was, “not getting to go to state competitions and talk to all the friends I have made through the years.” His advice to underclassmen is, “if there is an opportunity, take it, even if it takes work it can help you experience life in a new way and help you meet some life long friends.” Gene would like to thank all the teachers, all the way back to elementary, who helped him along the way. “I wouldn’t be where I am today without all of you!” Congrats Gene and best of luck. #railerproud

Our next senior spotlight would like to feature Hunter Demanett. He is the son of Tony and Chardy Magnett, and Jace and Kelsy Demanett. During high school he was involved in FFA, Cheerleading, Track, Vocal, T.N.T. Group, Lutheran Youth Group, Tri-County Chamber Fun Committee, Herington Hearts Core Community Volunteer, and Broadway Block Party Volunteer Committee. Hunter plans to attend Project Search in Salina after graduation. His favorite high school memory was “when I got to ask Madi Becker to Prom my Junior Year in front of the entire high school during a basketball game.” Mr. Hager’s Ag class was his favorite. “I sure do miss him!” Hunter said. The hardest part for Hunter to get used to not physically being at school he said was, “ I miss everything except the early mornings. I miss going to the pre-school to help the little kids, I miss going to Pizza-Hut in the afternoons and working, I miss seeing the office ladies and making them laugh. But most of all I miss my friend and teacher Mr. Harbaugh.” His message to underclassmen would be “Don’t worry so much about other people’s opinions of you, Be you and have fun doing it!” Hunter would like us to know “when I moved back to Herington my 8th grade year I was nervous because I didn't have a good time at my old school. But on my first day I met a new friend. His name was Brian and he was my bus driver. He recognized that I was different from the other kids and that I might need a bit more guidance. He gave me that and so much more. I will really miss not seeing his smiling face every day as I move on into adulthood. I will always have a high five ready for him when I see him out and about.” Best of Luck Hunter! #railerproud

Even though we can't get together to plant the community garden, there are several students who are doing awesome gardens of their own. Also, the FFA and Hope Agritrails went in together and bought enough sweet corn to totally fill half of the community garden. There will be plenty of sweet corn for all as the next school year gets started. Larry Mein and Tom Beihler have been hard at work getting it planted. Ms Burton and Ms Greenlee are thankful that there are so many hardworking and kind individuals in this wonderful community! The picture is of Tom Beihler planting corn in the garden.

In today’s Senior Spotlight we would like to feature Gabbriella Carnes. She is the daughter of Leah Carnes. While in high school she has been involved in Volleyball, Track, Softball, Homecoming Queen, Choir, Drama, Forensics, FCCLA Basketball Manager, Avid, and Yearbook. Her future plans are to attend Butler County Community College and major in something that will help people in situations like hers: Social Work. There were two favorite high school memories that she would like to share. “The first was when Coach Beye, Coach Parks and Coach Kickhaefer let me play volleyball on senior night. It made my mom so proud of me. The second was when everyone clapped for me when I was crowned homecoming queen.” When asked what her favorite class was she had several: Yearbook with Mrs. Beye and Ms. Levens; Math with Mrs. Vinduska and Government with Mr. Hirsh. When asked the hardest part of not getting to complete your senior year physically in school she replied, “The one on one communication or the understanding that there's other issues going on in people's lives that affect them from doing some work. I feel as if I'm not learning up to my potential.” Her message to underclassmen is “Time is precious. Things and people can vanish in a blink of an eye. Enjoy the little things. Stay persistent. Yes the future is important but there's no need to be a day ahead or stuck in the past. Go to a school function, join clubs, and just be a part of something. You never know when it could be your last moment together as a class. Last but not least be one with each other. There's no need to step on someone else when you could instead help them up and guide each other through their struggles. Your class will be as one so work together as a family. Your senior year is your last moments together before everyone finds their own paths. Just know that you're not alone and the teachers have your best interest. All you have to do is ask for help.” Best of Luck Gabby! #railerproud

For the next several weeks we will be taking time to recognize the seniors in a senior spotlight. We will be presenting seniors in alphabetical order. Today we would like to recognize Kayland Alexander. Kayland is the son of Pamala and Bryan Alexander. He has been involved in Basketball, Football, Student Council and FFA during his high school career. Kayland plans to attend college and obtain a degree in Elementary Education. His best memory of high school was the homecoming football game his sophomore year. Kayland picked off the ball on the last play of the game and ran it back for six points against Onaga High School to seal the win! His favorite classes are culinary and art because he loves to eat and has a passion for art. The hardest part of missing out on school this final month is the fact that “we all knew we would miss this place and all the memories we made at Herington High School but we didn’t know it would be this soon.” There were still many more memories to be made. His advice to underclassmen is to cherish every moment you have. Every practice that you might think is miserable at the time, every game day, every club meeting, every pep assembly, this list can go on and on. Either way, those moments will come and go fast whether you enjoy them or not, so don’t wait around until tomorrow to give it your all, because tomorrow might not come. Best of luck Kayland! #railerproud

The purpose of these casual conversations is to allow our Senior Leaders to share their unique stories with KSDE staff and their fellow seniors. He will be discussing guiding questions to get students thinking, but mostly for seniors to share what they found important in their journey to graduation and postsecondary life. In addition to KSDE staff, who will be facilitating the small breakout Zoom groups, staff from the Kansas Board of Regents will be in attendance as a resource for any postsecondary education questions.

They put their labeling skills to use helping identify what is in each jar. After that, the students measured out 8 oz of a specific liquid and put an egg inside. The egg will be observed over the next 5 days to see what happens as a result of leaving a liquid on your “teeth”! Students each write down a hypothesis of which liquid they think will have the most damaging effects. Liquid A- gatorade Liquid B- lemonade Liquid C- orange juice Liquid D- milk Liquid E- water Liquid F- coke Liquid G- sweet tea Liquid H- bang energy drink Fun was had by all and we would love for our community to play along with us! Which liquid do you think will cause the most damage?! We will post the findings of the students' observations in a few days! #beingallwecanbe

Herington Schools would like to thank all Veterans for their service to this great country today for Veterans Day. The High School Student Council created a unique opportunity for the high school students this morning. Instead of having a normal assembly where students get talked at, students were able to be talked with by Veterans. There were 11 veterans who were set up at tables. Students were free to move around the gym to learn about our community veterans and their lives. Students gave very high compliments on the event being very personal and most wished there was more time. The veterans were pleased with how respectful the students were when listening. This was a great opportunity for students to connect with community members and to learn communication skills. STUCO would like to thank all Veterans who came out today. They will be doing something like this again next year because of the success of this year!

Herington High School August Student of the Month Brody Brown, son of Diedra and James Bruce, has been awarded Student of the Month for August. Brody thinks that he was chosen because he feels that he is a good role model to younger kids at the school, and also a leader out on the football field. He also feels that the teachers have recognized that he has changed himself for the better after learning from his mistakes throughout high school. Throughout his high school years, Brody has been apart of the football and basketball teams. When asked, Mrs. Beye said, “Brody does what he can to help others out. He is always willing to be a positive part of the classroom and works hard to please others.” Congratulations, Brody!

Mrs. Gutsch's third grade class enjoyed several beginning of the year activities. One meaningful experience was reading "Pete the Cat, I Love My White Shoes" and discussing how Pete does not let little things get him down. We brainstormed issues that get in our way sometimes, one of which is other people's words. Students then squirted out an entire mini tube of toothpaste (representing others' words) and were asked to put the toothpaste back into the tube. This proved almost impossible! The takeaway: choose your words wisely, because once they come out of your mouth, you can't put them back in! We can clean up the mess, but we cannot fully put the toothpaste back into the tube! Our focus is using meaningful and kind words and having a positive attitude. #beingallwecanbe
