Kansas school district to give overwhelmed staff 2 days off


November 15, 2021

LANSING, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas school district is giving overwhelmed staff some extra time off heading into Thanksgiving break by using two of the extra days it had built into its schedule in case it had to close because of snow.

WDAF reports that the Lansing board of education’s decision to give staff Nov. 22 and 23 off as wellness days was based on the recommendation of Superintendent Dan Wessel.

“We realize our staff has been presented with an overwhelming amount of responsibility this school year amid the ongoing pandemic,” Wessel said this week. “We feel it is important to recognize the stress they have been put under and feel the time off will allow them time to rest, recharge, and come back ready to tackle the weeks leading up to winter break.”
