Spring Break

Spring Break will be Monday, March 11th thru Friday, March 15rd.  School will resume on Monday, March 18th.


This year, Ellsworth Elementary will not host a Kindergarten Roundup as we have in past years.  We are trying a new idea this year to decrease the number of events and tasks that Kindergarten parents have to complete.  We will continue the Pre-Kindergarten Screen that we have been using in the past.  The PKS is a pre-screener we use to help determine school readiness and our class sections.  The screen takes 15 minutes and then the teacher administering the screen meets with parents for about 15 minutes to go over the results.  The dates for the PKS are on April 23, 24, and 26.  You may sign up for a day and time to do the PKS during Spring Parent/Teacher conferences between 4-8pm on March 4 and 5.  Parents may also call the school at 785-472-5554 and sign up for a day/time with Mrs. Klug, EES Secretary. 


A huge THANK YOU goes out to our local dentists, Dr. Mark Herzog for the presentation to the 3rd graders and toothbrushes and to Dr. Kurt Williams for the donation of the toothbrushes.  With the donations from many local businesses and organizations, I had enough toothbrushes to distribute to the entire Elementary School for Dental Health Month!!  The school district appreciates community!                                              

Drop Off & Pick Up ReminderS

When driving your students to school, please observe the following rules:
If you pull up on the school side of the street, students need to exit the vehicle on the curb side, not the street side.  If you pull up across the street from the school, the students need to exit the vehicle on the curb side, then go to the crosswalk corner where they can cross the street safely with the help of the crossing guard.  Students may NOT cross in the middle of the street. Also, the cut out, (painted green) by the main office
door, is a loading and unloading zone only.  If you need to come into the building for a minute, please park in the yellow.


The EES/KMS BOGO (buy one get one) Book Fair is coming... Save the Date: April 11th-18th @ the EES Library... more details to come AFTER Spring Break! This is a great opportunity to stock up for Easter baskets and summer reading!

We just collected Box Tops the last week in February. The next BOX Tops collection will be in MAY… check expiration dates for the box tops and turn them into your child’s homeroom teacher.          

All doors are locked during school hours                                                                 If you plan to visit our building at any time, you must enter and exit through the North door by the office. You need to push the button on the door entry system. An office person will respond and unlock the door for you.  We also ask that you stop in the office to sign in and out. You will be given a visitors badge when you sign in. If you are without a badge, you may be stopped in the hall by a staff member and asked to return to the office.

Please notify the office if:

Your child’s after school plans get changed. (please notify us by 2:00 PM)

If you are going to be out of town for an extended period of time, please remember to let us know who will be responsible for your children. We’ll need contact names and numbers.

Emergency contacts ~ Please verify who you have listed as emergency contacts. In a real life emergency, we will need to verify who is able to pick up your child/children.
