Things to Remember
  • Breakfast is served to students at 8:30-8:50 AM.
  • Students not eating breakfast may enter the building through Door 15 by the library) after 8:45 AM and head straight to the gym.
  • Our morning assembly will start at 8:50 AM. 
  • Students arriving after 9:00 AM will need to enter the school through Door 1. They will need a late slip from the office before joining their classes after the assembly. 
  • Parents coming to school after 9:15 will need to use the security entrance by using the buzzer. 
  • Parents may drop students off in front of the school by going northbound on Bluff. 
  • There is no parking in this Drop-off Zone area. Please AVOID Skinner and Funston both before and after school. 
  • Buses will be traveling southbound in the back of the school building. We have heard many positive comments so far about how this change has helped the flow of traffic and want to thank you for your efforts.  

 

School Finder

School Finder helps parents
locate the right school

 














A new program on the district’s Web site can assist parents and school staff to find the correct neighborhood school. School Finder,
www.schoolfinder.usd259.org, can look up any address within the district boundaries and find the school assignment by grade level. Parents can also find the distance between the residence and the school and if the student qualifies for bus transportation. The site shows a map to help parents develop a safe walking route if the student does not qualify for a bus.  

Schools can also use the program to answer parents’ questions about which school their child should attend and if they qualify for a bus. The data is pulled from the district’s scheduling program that develops bus routes. 

“It’s an easy to use tool to help our families and our schools,” said Fabian Armendariz, Transportation Director.  

A link to School Finder is under the “Parents” section of the Wichita Public Schools’ Web site.  

Pure magnet schools are not listed in School Finder because they do not have a neighborhood address. For additional questions, contact Student Records and Enrollment Services at 973-4498.
