    Dear Elk Valley School Families,

    On 1/14/2021, we were notified that a teacher at Elk Valley Middle/High School has tested positive for COVID-19. Per our established protocol, we have temporarily closed-off areas of the building the individual used in the past several days so that we can thoroughly clean and disinfect the spaces.

    Currently, the Middle School Lady Lions Basketball Game against West Elk tonight has been CANCELLED. We will be attempting to rescheduled as possible.

  • COVID-19 Disinfecting Spray Protocol


    Parents, Students, and Community Members,


    Some concerns have been brought to our attention about the spraying protocols and the solution used to sanitize our student and staff areas. The product is used according to the manufacturer’s guidelines and sprayed in the evenings and after the areas have been occupied to help with sanitizing to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 


    This product is used in public buildings across the country and is a very safe solution to help with our prevention strategies. We are attaching the guidance below for your information and encourage you to contact the district office at 620-642-2811 or via email if you have further questions.

    Good Evening Elk Valley Family,


    Due to quarantine orders impacting several essential district functions in the areas of food service, transportation, maintenance, and administration the hard decision to move to remote learning was made.


    All students should make contact with their teachers tomorrow and do their best to remote in on devices they have available to them now at home. We anticipate remote learning continuing next week but a final decision will be shared tomorrow. In an additional announcement, we will provide details for wifi hotspots, Chromebook equipment pickup for the student’s on Monday, December 14th at 3 PM at 701 Delaware, Longton, KS 67352.


    Meals for Friday, December 11th will be available for pickup to all students from 11 AM to 12 PM at 701 Delaware, Longton, KS outside the bell tower door. Details for meals next week on Tuesday and Thursday will be provided at a later time tomorrow. Since the remote was triggered by staffing we are planning on having our next home game on Monday as scheduled. Further information on this will be released as well.


    We sincerely apologize for the late notice and know this presents a tremendous burden on our parent's students, staff, and families. Thank you for your understanding and support during this time as we do our best to keep our community safe. Remember LIONS R.O.A.R. with P.R.I.D.E.

  • AMENDED: Winter Sports Update

    Good Evening Parents and Students,

    Out of an abundance of caution and to help better address our remote learning challenges, we will be shifting to remote learning starting next Tuesday. The Elk County Health Department will be reaching out to any student or staff member that may have had direct contact with the parties as per public health guidelines. As of right now, the district is unaware of any possible close exposure that would have occurred last week or today during normal school activities. The events in question occurred over the weekend.

    School for the remainder of this week Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be canceled for all students. All staff will report for teacher in service.

    We will be using this time to prepare and finish the installation of our remote learning hardware that has been back-ordered due to supply issues.

    Further information regarding device check out and remote instructions will be forthcoming. If you have any questions please contact Megan Gaston, 620-642-7023, or Jason Crawford, 785-231-8983.

  • Important Covid Update

    Dear Elk Valley Family,


    Earlier this evening administration was made aware that a family member of a USD 283 employee tested positive for COVID-19. We are closely working with the Elk County Health Department and want to remind parents of the safety protocol. At this time the employee has not shown any symptoms and currently does not have a positive test. As always, we want parents to make their own decisions about their child’s health. 


    We want to ensure parents know we will take the steps necessary to protect the health of our students and staff. The family is now in quarantine. 


    The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to the regular seasonal influenza and include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Some have reported additional symptoms, such as a runny nose, sore throat, nausea, lethargy, lack of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. Individuals who need medical care should call their medical provider to report their illness prior to seeking care at a clinic, physician’s office, or hospital. Parents of students exhibiting flu-like symptoms or staff exhibiting flu-like symptoms are asked to contact a school official, local health authorities, or the Elk County Department of Health.


    We are closely monitoring this situation and will provide you with updates as we know more and at this time we will have school tomorrow, Tuesday, September 15th. Please continue to check our website, Facebook, and have your contact information updated in PowerSchool. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the district office at (620) 642-2215.
