The USD 480 board approved scheduling changes for LHS and Meadowlark at Monday night’s meeting. This is due to those two schools being a part of the Kansas State Department of Education’s redesign. Meadowlark will be dismissed at 1 on November 10, Nov. 17, Dec. 1, and Dec.8. The high school’s finals will be moved to December 18 and 19. This time will allow for school redesign planning and research.
