As every Haysville parent surely knows, tomorrow and Wednesday mark the beginning of a new school year – tomorrow for Kindergarten through 6th and for 9th grades, and Wednesday for 7th, 8th, and 10th through 12th grades.
To help you start the new year off right, the Haysville Community Library has a variety of useful guides and brochures available in the foyer – for free. Among them:
Fresh New School Year! is a back-to-school guide for the parents of preteens and teens from KidsHealth, consisting of useful advice and practical tips in a quick summary format.
Net Cetera: Chatting With Kids About Being Online is a fifty-five page brochure from the Federal Trade Commission with a host of valuable observations and resources to help parents talk with their kids in an informed and productive way about both the values and the dangers of the internet.
And for those who may have misplaced their copy of the Haysville USD 261 Back-To-School Issue, we still a have a number of copies for distribution.
