LOB Mail-Ballot Election

Moundridge residents have received a ballot with a single, school-related item on it.  Below is some simple information about this required mail-ballot election and more information will be in the mail later this week.

  • - The LOB election in June 2014 allowed the BOE to increase the budget authority to 33% with NO TAX INCREASE.
  • - The current LOB mail-ballot election will allow the BOE to maintain the 33% budget authority with NO TAX INCREASE.
  • - Failure to pass this election will reduce the budget authority by 2% and create a loss of state aid and approximately $60,000 from the budget.
  • - A YES VOTE minimizes budget cuts that affect the quality of education at USD 423.
  • - A YES vote will be voting to maintain the current level of funding for USD 423 students with NO TAX INCREASE

Please contact Superintendent Chad Higgins for more information.   Phone: 345-5500     Email: higginsc@usd423.org

McPherson County Health Department Nurses will be giving FREE Tdap Vaccinations to USD # 423 students (6th, 7th, and 8th graders) who bring Completed/Signed Consent Forms on or before Wednesday, December 17, 2014, to Moundridge Middle School.

Tdap (vaccine for Pertussis/Whooping Cough) information and required forms are being mailed home to all USD 423 6th, 7th and 8th graders.  They will also be available in the School Office or can be downloaded from the links below or at www.mcphersoncountyks.us under the Health Department link.

Children between the ages of 10 and 14 are vulnerable to the disease if they have not received a Tdap booster shot since getting their DTaP shot before starting Kindergarten.  Please check your child’s immunization record to determine if they have had a Tdap Booster since starting Kindergarten.

This FREE in-school clinic is in response to the recent cases of Pertussis/Whooping Cough in adolescents in McPherson County. Getting more adolescents immunized with Tdap will help prevent future cases of Pertussis in our community.

The FREE Tdap Vaccine will only be available for a limited time and there is a limited supply of FREE Tdap Vaccine.  We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity.

Moundridge fans, please save the date!  Author Steven Michael Farney will be joined by members of the 1991, 1992 and 1993 Hall of Fame Moundridge Boys Basketball teams at a special signing of the new book "Streakin."  In a game by game summary, the book chronicles the longest consecutive game winning streaks in the history of both boys and girls high school basketball.  These Wildcat teams won 59 straight during their run towards four consecutive state titles.  That winning streak is currently the second longest in the state's history for the boys.

Coaches and team members will join the author on December 20th from 2-4 PM at Modd's Sweets and Eats.  The hard cover book (216 pages) sells for $30 and for each book sold, $2 comes back to Moundridge High.  "Streakin" makes an excellent last-minute Christmas gift and will be a treasured keepsake of these special, Hall of Fame teams.  Hope to see you the 20th.
