ONLY USD 365 STAFF WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE SCHOOL BUILDING. IF YOU COME TO THE SCHOOL YOU WILL ONLY BE ALLOWED TO SPEAK THROUGH THE SECURITY ENTRANCE SPEAKER. WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU PLEASE CALL OR E-MAIL WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE. 785-867-3460
Reminders for preschool parents/guardians:
Please send an appropriate and complete change of clothing in case there is a bathroom accident, illness or big spill.
You must call the school (785-867-3460) and the bus barn (785-448-5778) if your child will not be attending that day.
Please keep your child home if they have a fever of 99 degrees or higher, diarrhea, vomiting or unusual rash/infection.
Inclement Weather: In the event of bad weather, school cancellations and late starts will be announced on major t.v. and radio stations in Kansas City, Topeka and Ottawa. USD #365 School Reach also sends out automatic phone calls to families who have provided a working phone number. See USD #365 Inclement Weather (late start policy) under the Newsletters link at the top. Click on January 2020
Parent Portals: On-line enrollment this year required parents to set up their parent portal, however, the parent portal has actually been available for several years. It allows you, the Parent/Guardian to see your child’s grades, attendance, and meal account balance whenever it’s convenient for you! All families will need to have their portal set up because it will be the gateway to enrollment from now on for preschool through grade 12. Those who haven’t set it up will have opportunity later this year. It’s easy and it’s convenient; the key is remembering your password. Use the following link to get started: http://www.usd365.org/
Student Meal Accounts: Each student has a meal account for tracking breakfast and lunch activity. It’s very important that your child’s meal account balance does not fall into the negative. You can track the balance by logging into your parent portal and clicking on meal accounts. You can pay on-line using e-funds or by sending a check or cash to the school office. Automated phone calls begin once a negative balance is reached. It will notify you of the low balance. We cannot carry negative balances so it is important to keep your child’s account current. Please call the office if you have special circumstances.
Bus Students: (Preschool through 6th) If your child will be absent from school, please call the school office and then YOU MUST CONTACT THE BUS BARN SO THEY DO NOT COME TO YOUR HOUSE UNNECCESSARILY. The same applies at dismissal time. If your child will not be riding the bus home please call the SCHOOL and THE BUS BARN (785-448-5778).
Illness: If your child has a fever, has vomited, or has had diarrhea, he/she needs to stay home until they have been SYMPTOM FREE for 24 hours. This insures that the illness has actually cleared.
PTO/Site Council: Our PTO (Parent-Teacher-Organization) is an important part of Greeley Elementary and is made up of parents who help us bring extra activities to our school that we wouldn’t otherwise have funding for. Volunteers are always needed and you can do as much or as little as fits your schedule. We are very lucky to have the extra funding available for field trips, celebrations, Pumpkin Day, Christmas Store and LOTS more, but it takes volunteers to make it happen. Consider attending the next meeting and see what a difference our PTO makes. Covid-19 policies are in effect and may change plans regarding the PTO.
Need to Speak With Your Child’s Teacher? Preschool-6th grade: Our teachers are always willing to meet with you when you have concerns or questions. To speak with a teacher, please call the school office and leave a message. Teachers will return phone calls after school or before school starts the following day. If it is urgent, please let our office staff know.
