Good morning, I will be doing the vision and hearing screenings on the 7th and 10th graders which is required by the state of Kansas in the next 2-3 weeks. I have completed the kindergarteners, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th graders in both schools so now will be focusing on the older kids. If your child has had a recent eye doctor appointment please let me know - if they wear glasses or contacts they will be checked with them in or on. I will be sending out emails to the parents as well. The screening takes about 7 minutes for both of the tests.

Susan "Sue" K. Hagedorn, 69, of Hanover, KS, passed away January 7, 2023 at Bryan West in Lincoln, NE. Sue began her career with USD 223 as a substitute teacher in 1984.  She then worked full time as a Teacher’s Aide from 1985 to 1987 and continued to substitute until 1993 when she became certified as a teacher.  Sue taught one year as a “Home School” teacher and then co-taught 5/6th grade for a year before becoming the Chapter 1 teacher for the 1994-95 school year. This was a position Sue held for 18 years until 2011-2012 school year when she took the position as school counselor. She remained school counselor for 12 years.  During her 37 years at Hanover School Sue had many other duties and responsibilities including: class sponsor, pep and cheer coach, assistant volleyball coach, summer school for 23 years, after school programs, leadership team committee, National Honor Society chairperson, curriculum duties, scorebook official and instructional coach. Sue was a lifelong learner and had a number of different degrees.  Over the years, faculty and staff within the district have developed close relationships with Sue. A funeral service will be held at 10:30 a.m., Friday, January 13, at the Immanuel Lutheran (Hermansberg) Church, north-east of Bremen.  USD 223 schools will not be in session on January 13th so students, faculty and staff may attend Sue's funeral.

Desafortunadamente, esta es la época del año en la que normalmente vemos un número creciente de resfriados y virus de la gripe. Estamos viendo más de esto probablemente debido a que no pudimos desarrollar nuestra inmunidad en los últimos años. Si su hijo tiene fiebre de 100.4 o más, si está tosiendo, si le falta el aire, tiene dolores de cabeza, dolores corporales, vómitos o diarrea, debe quedarse en casa hasta que no tenga síntomas sin ningún medicamento durante 24 horas. Si tiene alguna pregunta, envíeme un correo electrónico a

Unfortunately, this is the time of the year that we normally see increasing numbers of colds and flu bugs. We are seeing more of this probably due to not being able to build up our immunity the past several years. If your child is running a fever of 100.4 or higher, if they are coughing, if they are short of breath, having headaches, body aches, vomiting or diarrhea they need to stay home until they are symptom free without any medication for 24 hours. If you have any questions, please email me at
