Meade School Patrons: The district was notified today that another high school student had tested positive for COVID-19. The Meade County Health Department will contact students and other individuals who may be required to quarantine. As always, if a student shows symptoms of COVID-19, please seek medical attention immediately.
Parents are asked to call the Meade High School (873-2981) by 11:00 AM this morning if they have no home internet access. Hopefully the district can get routers in place by Monday as we move to Remote Learning.
Meade Community: Due to the high rate of positive COVID-19 cases in Meade, additional staff members who have tested positive or are in quarantine, students in quarantine, and now a positive student from each building, Meade Schools are forced to make a difficult decision. On Friday, September 18th there will be NO SCHOOL for ALL students. On Monday, September 21st remote instruction with teachers will begin for PS-12th grade. Teachers will connect with students through Zoom, Google Classroom, Seesaw, or some other means. Be on the lookout for further announcements. Remote instruction will continue at least through next week and possibly longer based on the number of positive cases and quarantines that continue to impact students, staff, and the community. Students are being asked to take home necessary materials, books, and Chromebooks today to prepare for Monday. If a parent does not have internet access, they are asked to contact the school. All activities and practices have been canceled until at least through next week and possibly longer. Individuals who need to be quarantined will be contacted by the Meade County Health Department. It is recommended that other students stay at home as much as possible and not congregate to help reduce the chances of further transmissions. We understand this will be difficult for many, but based on state and local health officials’ guidance, this is in the best interest of our students, staff, and community to help mitigate the rapid rise of COVID-19 cases in Meade. Kenneth Harshberger, Superintendent
Meade School District Patrons: We all know that with the spike in cases in Meade our school district has been impacted. As always, when a positive case is reported, the Meade County Health Department works with guidance from the state epidemiologists to make recommendations about any quarantine. The school district then follows that guidance. Every situation is different, so state recommendations may very as well. The district is working to communicate these recommendations when appropriate, all while trying to protect student and staff privacy as much as possible. Unfortunately there has still been some misinformation about cases. As of this morning (9-16-20) there has been NO report of any Meade student testing positive for COVID-19 according to the Meade County Health Department. This can change at any time, so we all need to be vigilante in taking necessary precautions. There are several staff members who have tested positive and have been quarantined. On a regular basis the state and county health officials have recommended that a number of students and some staff members be in quarantine who have NOT tested positive. As a result, some students are taking classes remotely and some teachers are teaching from home. The district will continue to follow recommendations from health professionals during this difficult time. While we hope that COVID-19 case numbers subside, it is likely new cases will surface off and on during the school year. Thank you for your help and understanding during these unusual times. Kenneth Harshberger, Superintendent
Our Lady Buffs win against Kiowa County was Coach Krier's 100th win as the MHS volleyball coach. The 2nd win of the season at Bucklin moved her into second place on the Meade all-time list. Way to work, Coach Krier! We are proud of you. #WeR226 #MeadeBuffaloes #MHSVolleyball
On Sept. 15, 2020 the Meade School District was notified that another staff member had tested positive for COVID-19 at the grade school. Staff and students that need to be quarantined have been contacted after following guidance from the state and the Meade County Health Department. Additional sanitation has already been completed. As always individuals who are showing symptoms of COVID-19 should not come to school. Meade County currently has a large spike in cases and as a result the Meade County Commission issued a mask order for the county to help protect against further spread. As a result students, staff, and visitors should put on masks well before entering the building. We appreciate all your help in protecting our students and staff. Kenneth Harshberger, Superintendent
Announcement: MHS C team VB scheduled for tomorrow @ Meade vs Ingalls has been cancelled.
Announcement: Meade High JV FB for Monday, 9.14.20 has been cancelled.
USD 226 Patrons: After school on September 11 and on September 12, 2020 the district received notification from the Meade County Health Department that two staff members from the grade school had tested positive for COVID-19. Because one individual was in quarantine for nearly a week, no students or other staff members were impacted. The other individual has been quarantined along with close contacts since testing positive. The state and Meade County Health Department has not recommended quarantine for other students or staff at this time because they are not considered close contacts. Symptoms of COVID-19 should continue to be monitored by everyone and individuals should not come to the school if symptoms are present. As always the district will continue to take measures to maintain a safe learning environment for everyone. Already additional sanitation has been completed in the buildings. Kenneth Harshberger, Superintendent

GREAT NEWS FOR FAMILIES! Because of a new federal program just released, starting today ALL children ages 1-18 can receive free breakfast and lunch at school through December 2020. The district will serve these free meals to ALL students currently eating at school and will consider plans to provide these free meals to children not in school. Payment for meals already received will roll over to the next semester.
USD 226 Students, Staff, and Parents: On Monday, August 31, 2020 the district received notification that two students at the high school and one staff member at the grade school tested positive for COVID-19. None have been in school since last Friday. Rest assured the district takes this matter seriously. The Meade County Health Department reached out to the school and to close contacts of those testing positive. Proper quarantine protocol has been instituted as necessary. Although this is new for everyone, the district will continue to take measures to maintain a safe learning environment for our staff and students. Extra sanitation has been performed in both buildings this evening. Out of an abundance of caution, staff and students are requested to contact their physician if COVID-19 symptoms appear and also continue to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines. Meade USD 226 apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the building principals, superintendent, or the Meade County Health Department. Sincerely, Kenneth Harshberger, Superintendent.
School Communication About COVID-19 to the Public Because of federal guidelines the school district is restricted in communication about staff or students effected by COVID-19. After considering input from both legal and health organizations, the district will be cautious about releasing information regarding those impacted by COVID-19. Based on the best guidance, the district will only release information directly to the public when an individual who has been in the school facility tests positive for COVID-19. No individual will be identified and the notice will be general in nature to protect all those involved. Going forward, if a student or staff member is quarantined because of being just a close contact of someone who tests positive, no information will be released unless the person later tests positive for COVID-19.
Reminder: XC practice starts at 6am on Monday. Athletes should bring their own water bottle and mask (to be worn inside only).

Meade High School Graduation will be live streamed via the USD 226 Facebook page. It will begin 5 minutes prior to the ceremony which kicks off at 3pm this Sunday, July 26th.
Yesterday the State Board of Education did not approve delaying the start of school. As a result, last night the Meade Board of Education approved starting school with students on August 20th. This is two days later than the original start date which allows staff more time to prepare. PS-K will not begin until August 24th. Enrollment information will be out next week. The district is committed to providing three learning models for students: 1) Face to face learning; 2) Remote learning if a student has to remain at home for a short time; and 3) An online program for those who choose to be solely at home.
Senior Graduation (July 26th - 3:00 pm) and 8th Grade Promotion (July 27th - 7:00 pm) are still planned at the MHS Gym. However, due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases, local health officials recommended additional precautions be considered. As a result the Meade Board has added the following guidelines: 1) All participants will be required to wear masks or a face covering; 2) Those attending are limited to immediate families; 3) Individuals who have been in a hot spot or state that KDHE says requires a 14 day quarantine are requested to not attend. Thank you for helping to make this a successful and safe time for our graduates!
This is just a friendly reminder to our parents and community. The school gyms and the weight rooms are not open to the public at this time. They are only open to student groups that have planned activities organized by coaches. These scheduled events help the district maintain sanitary precautions to keep everyone as safe as possible. Thank you for your help.

YIKES! My apologies to you regarding my Dr. Seuss Day reminder. Dr. Seuss Day has been canceled. I thought I was going to get ahead of the game, so prior to leaving for Spring Break I scheduled a Dr. Seuss Day reminder to appear at 2:00am today. Unfortunately, due to current events, our Dr. Seuss Day has been cancelled. Equally unfortunate, I forgot to remove the scheduled post. I know many people saw the post. Some sent DMs about it (THANK YOU!). I immediately deleted the post from our Live Feed, Facebook, and Twitter. Again, I apologize for the confusion. Have a great day and stay safe, Stacy Cordes *This post is WAY to long to be a tweet, so hopefully our Twitter followers are FB and LF followers as well.
Even though school buildings have closed in Kansas, education will not end. A KSDE Task Force will release ideas today to help schools provide continuous learning. In turn it will take Meade USD 226 some time to put local plans in place for meals as well as learning. Expect more announcements in the next several day. Kenneth Harshberger, Superintendent
This afternoon, Gov. Kelly announced schools would be closed until the end of the school year due to COVID-19. KSDE will give guidance soon on how schools provide "continuous learning" for students during this time. Offering take home meals is also something which may be allowed.
The Commissioner of Education, Randy Watson, along with the Kansas BOE, KSDE, KSHE and the Speaker of the House is strongly recommending all schools in Kansas close March 16th through the 20th. While Meade USD 226 is on Spring Break, the school will be closed for all activities.
Yesterday KSHSAA canceled Regional Music and today they announced - "Effective Monday, March 16, all spring sports and activities are suspended through Sunday, March 22. This includes cancellation of all practices and competitions." Please monitor our social media for updates.
