School Lets Out Early in Liberal for State Tournament

KSCB News - March 8, 2016 6:00 am

The USD 480 school board approved a request to cancel school Thursday and go a half day Wednesday. The reason? Liberal’s basketball team is in the state tournament and as crowds have swelled in the Big House, there is interest in making the Topeka Expocentre the Big House East. Schools will dismiss after lunch Wednesday and no school Thursday and Friday.

The board also approved the request to rehire the district’s principals and central office administration for next school year. There aren’t expected to be any changes next school year.

The board voted to purchase new football uniforms. A new set of red jersies, white jersies, and black pants were purchased for 22,473 dollars.

The board approved a new handbook for the district’s substitute teachers. The handbook gives more plain guidelines of their responsibilities. The approval is pending legal counsel.

The board renewed the subscription to Scholastic Magazine for all K-5 students for 13,146 dollars.
