Ensuring the health and safety of children at Heartland Early Education Programs is foremost. The building has enhanced measures including deep cleaning and disinfecting procedures. Masks and social distancing are a part of how the district staff operate. Employees and families are expected to self-screen before coming to work and school. It is critical that anyone who is not feeling well not come to school.
Salina USD 305 continues to communicate regularly with and follow the guidance of the Saline County Health Department. In addition, the Saline County Health Department is working with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment for additional guidance. Our goal is to provide safe learning environments for our students and ensure the well-being of both students and staff.
