December 16, 2021 Dear Parents and Guardians, Earlier today all Kansas school districts were given notification from the Kansas State Department of Education about a vague threat to all schools in the U.S. from a new Tik Tok challenge that encourages violence in schools on Friday, December 17, 2021. This is a national trend, and we have not heard anything specific to North Lyon County Schools or Lyon County. USD 251 is closely monitoring this national social media threat and we have been in communication with the Lyon County Sheriff’s Department today. This situation serves as a good example of why it is important to avoid sharing posts online that refer to school safety threats. Even if they are not credible threats, they can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety for our students, families, and staff. I would encourage our families to monitor their children’s social media activity. It is always our intention to be transparent by sharing information with our school community. If you feel it is age-appropriate, please talk to your students about the pressures of social media and the potential consequences of engaging in this type of behavior. While we know these challenges are out there, we also know that the vast majority of our students do the right thing every day. Please tell your student not to repost any threatening posts or messages. If you or your child become aware of any potential threat posted on social media or anywhere else, please notify a school staff member or trusted adult right away. Our schools are incredibly safe, and with everyone’s help, we will keep them that way. We will treat all threats seriously, and we will follow district and student handbook policies, which could result in disciplinary action as well as the intervention of law enforcement. As always, thank you for your partnership as we work to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment for our students. Sincerely, Robert W. Blair, Superintendent USD 251 North Lyon County

NHHS Hallway and Lobby. The custodial crew had stripped was from the terrazzo floor in the west hall and lobby, and has the first coatings of wax in the hallway. The carpeting has been removed from the lobby and office walls, and new drywall installed.

Wondering what is happening at NLC at the start of the summer? A new look is coming our way... but first some deconstruction. Here are a few pictures of the removal of the carpet from the floors and walls in late May and early June.
