Breakfast is served at the Elementary School!! Parents encourage your students to enjoy Free meals for the remainder of this year!
USDA has announced the extension of the free meal program for all students until the end of the school year. The program was set to expire on December 31st. This program was made retroactive to the beginning of the school year. For those that paid for meals at the beginning of the school year, your lunch account has now been credited with the amount you have already paid. Any student with a negative balance has had the balance removed. The Woodson School District would like to encourage all students to eat breakfast and lunch, thus saving families money!
The YCHS Kays have honored the Woodson County Veterans for several years. As November 11 nears this Fall the celebration will continue but in a different way. We are unable to host events in the auditorium. This year the KAYS will be visiting each Veteran and honoring them individually on November 10 with a yard sign and special gifts delivered to their door. If you would like to be included on this special day contact the High School at 620~625~8820 or contact Tasha Steele.
