Joni needs to go. She has been a thorn in so many people's side and a horrible Principal. Don't stop here call the news while your out it and contact everyone you can before this happens again.

It is a real shame as this school use to have a great reputation until Joni got there. People use to move to go to Deerfield now they move to get out of the school.

Why did this article avoid naming the person who has the power to correct this situation?
Joni Appleman has been the principal at Deerfield since 2006. The people that fund her job (tax payers) should know that they can contact her at (785) 832-5660 and express their concerns.

Thank You for this Post. Ever since the old teacher left this school has gone to Hell in a hand basket. I might also add in all the years she has been there I have yet to hear one good thing about her.
KG is not required by law... Kids are not going to remember being "late" at 5 years of age nor begin to start building work ethics. For those of you that think Migraines are "treatable" you must have never had one!!! Not only can they make your vision distorted which makes it impossible to drive but the meds. for these can make you have a number of side effects.
When my kids were in school I had no option other than myself to get my kids to school.
It isn't as cut and dry as you all seem to think.
The problem begins and hopefully will end with finding a new Principal and getting rid of Joni Appleman once and for all.
Did she ever warn the parent of calling SRS? This is something that will follow this women for a good long time. Joni is on a power trip and it is time the school district wakes up to the damage this Principal has caused.
Wake up USD497 and fire this Principal one and for all!

This is one of the reason I moved my kids to Sunset Hill. I have heard this story of her calling SRS. before. When Boardwalk apartments burned to the ground years back a family had to temporally move due to fire and she refused to let the child get back into Deerfield. My advise run don't walk and get into another school. Something like this does not warrant SRS being called to the home. Frankly I find it hard to believe this Principal is still working period.
