We are very excited to be starting a new school year and would like to welcome back all of our returning staff, students, and families. We would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining Haysville USD 261 this year.

Kansas regulations now require that we provide all parents with notice of policies regarding Emergency Safety Interventions ("ESI''). The State of Kansas policy is available on our website and in our student handbooks. In addition, we will provide a copy of the policy at any time upon request.
When visiting Tri-City Day School, please make sure that you take the entrance just west of the entrance to Haysville High School. Follow that curved road around and you will find guest parking near the front doors of Tri-City. We continue to be a secured facility (like all other USD 261 schools) so please press the buzzer you will find on the wall to the right of the double doors. When you come in, please enter the glass door on your right and sign in with Trisha in the office.
Thank you for entering our building on the Tri-City Day School side so that we are not creating more traffic for our friends at Haysville High School.
To ensure the safety of our students all parent volunteers must fill out a district volunteer application. All perspective volunteers will be subject to a background check and may be interviewed by the building principal.

About Our School
Tri-City Day School is attended by students from the Haysville, Derby, and Mulvane public school districts. This school was established to meet the diverse, unique emotional and mental health needs of their K-12 students.
Tri-City Day School offers four educational classrooms focusing on core and non-core courses through direct teacher instruction and the use of computerized curriculum. Most students also have physical education available one to two times a week at an off-site location. All classrooms are staffed with certified special education teachers and behavior technicians. A full time licensed practical nurse (LPN) is also available on site for students’ needs. Some students receive additional support during the school day through agencies such as the Mental Health Association (MHA), Behavioral Link, COMCARE, and other community based agencies that support students with disabilities.
In addition to traditional core curriculum, students receive group counseling under the supervision of a Licensed Masters Social Worker for 180 minutes per week. Also available to students is individual counseling which is provided on site by an LSCSW in private practice. Both Medicaid and some individual insurance are accepted by this provider. Other additional related services may be included in a student's school day as determined by the student's Individual Education Program (IEP) team. All students are enrolled into their home school district in Derby, Haysville, or Mulvane and then referred to Tri-City Day School through the sending local school district. All students have been evaluated and categorized for special education services and all lesser restrictive settings were not successful for the students as determined by the Individual Education Program (IEP) team before a placement is considered.
