WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – One school district in Kansas is making the switch to a four-day school week.

Argonia USD 359 announced on Facebook Wednesday that they are going to a four-day school week for the 2023-2024 school year.

Students will no longer have to attend class on Mondays, making the school week Tuesday through Friday.

School days will be from 7:50 a.m. through 3:45 p.m.

The Argonia school district shared the benefits of choosing USD 359:

  • Small class sizes
    • Your child will have the unique opportunity to be a part of small class sizes. Our students get constant one-on-one attention to ensure their needs are met. Small class sizes create a safe atmosphere in which students feel confident to share, collaborate, and grow as learners.
  • Staff
    • We focus on building relationships with our students. It is important to our staff to know each and every one of our students in order to connect and make positive impacts. Our staff truly cares about the success of each and every student and will work side-by-side with the student to ensure they succeed.
  • Sports
    • We offer a variety of sports, including football, volleyball, basketball, track, baseball, softball, and cheerleading. Our students have the opportunity to not only join these teams but see playing time as well. No tryouts or cuts, with the exception of cheerleading.
  • Extracurriculars
