Email Switch-Over!
Effective immediately, all Sedgwick Public Schools employees will be switching over to a new domain for email. Many staff had been using email addresses ending with @usd439.k12.ks.us. On March 13th, a server that controlled that email domain was shut down. Most employees have been switched over to the new domain which you will find email addresses ending now in @usd439.com. 

If you have sent email to anyone at @usd439.k12.ks.us, there is a good chance the email was never received or that you are getting bounce-back emails that it couldn't be delivered. Please update your contacts to show any USD 439 employee as @usd439.com!

We apologize for any troubles and are working to get through this conflict as quickly as possible!

Sedgwick High School Wins Yearbook Award!!

The Sedgwick High School Yearbook class has been recognized for the 2014 National Yearbook Program of Excellence Award. Jostens, the leading producer of yearbooks and student-created content, announced that Sedgwick High School’s yearbook program was named a 2014 Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence Award winner. The National Yearbook Program of Excellence recognizes engaging yearbooks that reflect a broad representation of the student body while helping students develop 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, and information and communication technologies (ICT) literacy. 


The Sedgwick High School award-winning yearbook program was led by Summer Hersh, Mackenzie Bollinger, Taylor Bollinger, Meghan Liby, and Bridgette Sperry under the direction of Jeff Koch, Sedgwick High School yearbook adviser. 


Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence Awards are presented twice a year, in spring and in fall for yearbooks delivered during the school year. The National Yearbook Program of Excellence Award was presented to the Sedgwick High School yearbook program for achieving the defined criteria in each of three following categories: creating an inclusive yearbook, generating school engagement, and successfully managing the yearbook creating process. 


“Yearbooks connect students’ hearts and minds to the school story, school year experiences, and the community to memorialize moments that matter. Jostens is proud to recognize yearbook staffs and advisers who create engaging yearbooks that tell the story of their school communities,” said Murad Velani, chief operating officer, Jostens. “We understand that a great yearbook program does not just happen, and we are dedicated to helping schools, yearbook advisers, and students to strengthen their programs by providing state of the art tools, resources and the best practices that support the development and creation of award-winning yearbooks.”


The Sedgwick High School yearbook program received a plaque to display in the yearbook area and a banner to display in the school so the entire school community will be aware of the outstanding achievement. 


Congratulations to the entire Sedgwick High School yearbook staff, as well as their adviser Jeff Koch on a job well done!
