Due to the increased amount of potentially dangerous inclement winter weather days this year, JCHS seniors will be short on school time, a requirement of the State of Kansas. In order to meet this requirement, JCHS has approved and will implement the following plan.
Junction City High School will host Parent Teacher Conferences for all grade levels from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Friday, March 8, 2019. JCHS will also hold mandatory graduation practice for JCHS seniors only on Friday, May 17, 2019. By following this plan, JCHS seniors will not need to extend their school day or make up additional days of school at the end of the year.
If additional inclement winter weather days are taken this school year, the aforementioned plan may be modified.
Elementary School students are also impacted by the increased amount of inclement winter weather days and will be short on required school time. USD 475 is currently in the process of developing a plan to make up this time in a way that is least impactful to the school year, parents and families, and staff. A finalized plan is anticipated to be announced during the first week of March.
