Hard to believe the snow is already flying and we are on the brink of November and Daylight Savings. The first quarter of the school year has gone by so quickly. We are grateful to all the parents and guardians that attended conference on Wednesday and Thursday. It takes all of us working together with the same goal. If you were unable to attend, please reach out to the elementary or secondary offices to reschedule.
And . . . we are celebrating our one-year anniversary in our new building! On Monday, November 1st, it will be a year since we moved in. Please join us in the celebration. All students will check into their first hour class or classroom teacher and then all students and staff will be seated in the main gym by 8:07. We have some surprises to go along with our pep rally. The details are available here.
Please note several information items that have been going out on ClassTag. Booster Club is working hard with a variety of things happening. There is a form to purchase yard signs and Red Ribbon Week is coming to a close An elementary book swap and the annual Turkey Trot are being planned. Thank you, Booster Clubs, for all your support! The new sports calendars for the upcoming seasons are also posted.
We are pleased to announce that the Veterans Day celebration is back! A long-standing tradition will happen on Thursday, November 11th we will be honoring those who have served during this time. Final plans are in progress so please watch for details to be out soon. A huge thank you to Mr. Wellman and the FFA team for working on this.
We have seen an uptick in COVID cases. It is believed that many of these can be contributed to the homecoming celebrations. We are continuing to monitor our cases and will notify you if your child has been exposed so you can watch for symptoms. To date, we have not had to quarantine any groups of students due to an outbreak. To help reduce our numbers of positives, Routt County Public Health will be hosting a student vaccination clinic on Saturday, November 13th. The second vaccine will be available on December 5th. When all details have been finalized, it will be shared out on our website and through ClassTag.
We are continuing to implement items from the ‘old’ school into our new school. It does take some time and many of the companies we are working with are slow to respond and items are back ordered. The trophies are in the display cases in the athletic entrances. We have placed an order for new sports honor boards to replace wrestling and a new one for track. Once they are received, they will be hung. Academic honor boards will also be going up prior to the winter break. Currently, we are working on the Pride of the Tiger and Tiger Wall of Fame boards.
With Halloween around the corner, please be safe if participating in the activities.
