Construction Effects for the Start of School:
Hello Everyone and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding with all the construction updates we have going on in USD 426. We are continuing to keep a close eye on progress and I am working closely with our custodial staff in determining how we need to proceed for the start of school.
With all this being said, we know that we are really having things tight for the start of the school year. We plan to continue to make adjustments as we go along this last month or so, but want everyone to know that we may have to push the start of school back a week or so. This will only be done if absolutely needed. We do want to start school on time.
We will make a final decision one week prior to the actual first scheduled day for this fall. In other words, we will have a notification go out on August 10th with the most updated information for the actual start of the school year.
If you have any questions, please give Mr. Joonas a call at 785-335-2206 for clarification, but again, be patient as we will send out a notification on August 10th. Thank you.
KSHSAA Summer moratorium is July 3rd-July 9th. This is a required break for all coaches and athletes. There will be no school related activities, including weights and sport specific activities, during this time. School facilities are not to be used for any school activities during this time. Enjoy the time off!
No board meeting for Pike Valley USD 426 tonight, June 12th, 2023, due to the lack of a quorum. It will be rescheduled at a later date. Thank you

David C. Toland, Secretary Laura Kelly, Governor
Faculty, Staff, Student and Parents:
Kansas is creating a plan to expand broadband to every Kansan and asking everyone to visit
to take a quick online speed test and survey. The test is simple and will only take a
couple of minutes to complete.
If you do not have internet service at your home or business, you can call or text 1 (913) 349-9555 and share your
address where there is no service.
To take the speed test, just make sure you are on Wi-Fi (not just on your cell phone network) from your home or
business. Look for this symbol this ( ) instead of this one ( ) to be sure you are not on your cell phone
• The speed test will capture your internet speed, general location, and IP address, but will not record any
other personal information.
• You will also see a SURVEY button. The survey is optional, but we encourage you to take it.
It will provide
us with important information about how you connect, what training might be helpful, and how
affordable your internet service is.
This may not be the first time you have been asked to do this, but it may well be the most important. It can help
us prioritize the historic federal funding coming to Kansas! If possible, best results are obtained if you take 5-7
tests at different times of day with focus in the late afternoon or early evening since this is when you may
experience the slowest service.
We know that this is a busy time of the year with school ending and summer beginning. We deeply appreciate
your help in getting these tests done to share where the opportunities are to better connect Kansas.
