​We have applied with the Bates County Commission for American Rescue Plan Funds to help the district start a daycare program. There are several teachers with little ones or expecting that can no longer find childcare in Rich Hill since all providers have closed since the COVID shutdown. We know there will be a few teachers who will have to resign if there is no childcare available. Since this is a COVID caused issue, we have applied for $287,408 to provide a facility, equipment, and first year staffing expenses to help us get up and running at a reasonable daily rate for staff. Open spots after staff would be available to working community members at a reasonable cost. The district would expand its daycare and preschool program according to demand from the community to provide working parents seamless care from birth to 5 years old. We thank the Commission for their work in distributing available funds. We think this would be a huge benefit to many families in the Rich Hill community and would benefit all of the students in the district as we would be able to keep our quality teachers by providing childcare to them.

What a fantastic way to end our week! We had a very brave kindergartener help save the day on Tuesday. Alecsus Entrikin's grandma picked her up after school. On the way home, Alecsus noticed an elderly woman that had fallen in front of her home and was trying to flag down some help. Alecsus told her grandma they needed to turn around and go help. Needless to say, she saved the day! Alecsus was recognized today by the city and our local policemen! She received a certificate of appreciation from the city of Rich Hill for honorable achievement! Congratulations to Alecsus for being so brave!
