When determining whether or not a student should be sent home due to covid-similar symptoms, this chart will be utilized as guidance by the Wamego Schools.
MASK MANDATES IN USD 320
At the special Board Meeting held on Thursday, August 5 the USD 320 Board of Education took the following action that consisted of three parts:
It is important to understand that making masks optional does not change our adherence to the required quarantine or isolation guidelines, nor does it affect the mitigation procedures such as the clear barriers that are in place. Wearing masks on school transportation is still a requirement, as is wearing a mask if a student or staff member is “Testing to Stay.“ All of these measures will continue for the foreseeable future.
Also, it needs to be pointed out that we started the school year with masks when many districts started with masks optional. We are now making masks optional because of our low covid numbers when many districts have recently mandated or are considering mandating masks due to large numbers of positive cases and/or quarantines of their students and staff.
The USD 320 Covid Test Center will be open on Monday and Tuesday, November 22 & 23 from 9 a.m. until noon for staff/students in the district.
This is an issue that will need our constant and ongoing attention.

Results from the National FFA Livestock Contest are in! These four students have put in a great deal of work since they were little kids to now for this event. Unfortunately, FFA has a rule that once you compete in a National Contest you cannot compete at State or Nationals again in the event.
The team placed 11th in the Nation which put them in the Gold Division.
James DeRouchey placed 17th - Gold Division
Jordan Sylvester placed 30th - Gold Division
Jenna DeRouchey placed 72nd - Silver Division
Avery Eckhoff placed 75th - Silver Division
We are very proud and honored to have them represent the Wamego FFA, Wamego High School, and the community.
USD 320 Board of Education has begun the process of hiring a Superintendent of Schools.
To help guide their search they are wanting broad input from staff and patrons as to the desired characteristics of the next Superintendent.
The link below is to an online survey that will help define and rank the desired characteristics. Responses will be accepted through November 23.
