Dear USD 429 Parents and Guardians:
As we approach the end of the first quarter, I again want to tell you thank you for your patience and flexibility as we continue to strive to have in person learning for your children. As we continue to update our website and keep you posted on Covid related incidents and situations, it is important to remind you we do not have the authority to tell you about all situations. However I wanted to give you an update on the number of students and staff we have had quarantined and the number of positive Covid cases in our district.
We have had twelve positive Covid cases. This includes students and staff, or staff that are assigned to our district from another organization. We have had 73 students or adults quarantined due to close contact with positive cases. We still believe these are outside cases coming into our district. These numbers change daily.
It is becoming so much common practice, we will not post every situation but will communicate when and if needed. As I have mentioned many times, we are working hard to maintain an in person learning environment for our staff and students. We will continue to offer as much “normal” as we can for your children.
We will be having online parent teacher conferences and hope you take time to visit with your children’s teachers. These conferences are still very important to us. We definitely appreciate your willingness to be flexible and adjust to our new format. These can still be very productive conferences.
We will plan for four more great weeks to get us to Thanksgiving break. It is our hope you are all safe and doing well in your own households. We will continue to face the challenges that come forth and will always work with you to help your children.

THS Football @ Uniontown will be 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30th!
MASKS ARE REQUIRED TO BE WORN AT ALL KSHSAA POST SEASON EVENTS INCLUDING FOOTBALL!
With 105 county health departments setting guidelines based on KDHE and CDC, there tends to be a lot of inconsistencies from location to location. Therefore, The KSHSAA remains very firm on requiring masks for all who attend a post-season football game. This includes tournament workers and host management. Even if you are in a no mask county, masks will be worn. You need to remember that people will be traveling from other counties. We all need to be mindful and respect the safety of those around us.

Sweets for Soldiers
The Troy Grade School Student Council will be sponsoring Sweets for Soldiers again this year. Bring in your extra candy collected when trick-or-treating to help your class be the winning class that collects the most candy (in weight) and win a sweet treat! Candy drop off in classrooms will be from October 28- November 4. The sweets will be shipped to local troops who are deployed in honor of Veterans Day.
The Troy Grade School Student Council, sponsored by Rebekah Hall, will be hosting a honorary ceremony for Veterans Day, on November 11, 2020. The celebration for the Veterans and their guest(s) will take place at 10:00 am on the Troy Grade School Playground. Guests are welcome to join us at the flag pole on the playground, or line up in their cars on West Poplar along the playground fence. If a veteran is unable to attend please email Ms. Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and address so that we may mail them a special letter written by our first grade class and a dvd of our tribute to veterans.
