The class size is limited to 30 students. Priority will be based on age as well as those who attend Canton-Galva schools. Our instructor for the course will be Mr. Mark Rathbone, a former graduate of Canton-Galva. Mr. Rathbone is planning to have 10 class sessions that will begin on Monday, June 8th and conclude on Tuesday, June 23rd. The course will be conducted at The Yard, located at 108 W. 2nd Street in Galva from 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. It is important to note that during the classroom portion of the course the student must score a minimum of 80% on each test taken. Attendance for each class is required. Also, Mr. Rathbone will start with car instruction on Tuesday, June 9th right after class from 11:00 – 1:00 and 1:00 – 3:00 and continue this instruction until the end of classes on June 23rd.

No transportation will be provided from Canton to Galva due to COVID-19 and limited staff.

At the conclusion of the instructional portion of the course, Mr. Rathbone will drive with kids, two at a time from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. The driving portion will begin on June 29th.

Return the bottom portion and payment to the Canton-Galva Jr/Sr High School office or mail to PO Box 275, Canton, KS 67428 by Tuesday, May 26th.

Due to COVID-19 and the restrictions imposed by the State of Kansas, we have had to make a couple adjustments to our Driver's Education schedule.

1) Class will begin Monday, June 8th at the Yard located at 108 W. 2nd St. in Galva.

2) Driving with the instructor will begin Monday, June 29th through the month of July, as State guidelines permit.

We received the following Information from the McPherson County United Way:

We created a McPherson County Community Needs Survey to address the needs of community members and understand how to better serve them in this time of crisis. The link for this survey is: McPherson County United Way Survey

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Enrollment for this program is open to residents of McPherson County. Children will be able to receive free, monthly books mailed to their home. It can take up to three months for the first book to arrive. Then based on the child's birth date, age-appropriate books will begin arriving each month until the child turns 5.

We also encourage enrollment because it will give families greater opportunities to bond with their younger children and improve literacy during this time. Register your Child for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library

Keeping our schools safe and healthy is one of the main goals for USD 419. We are working closely with the McPherson County Health Department and KDHE to stay informed about the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • Stay home if you aren’t feeling well
  • Avoid those who are sick
  • Stay healthy-eat well, get plenty of sleep, & stay hydrated.
