It’s beginning to look a lot like spring. Mud, grass, snow patches, worn out shoes and pants and a hint of warm weather are all starting to show up. It’s always good to start to put the cold and harshness of winter behind us. We can all start to see the end of the school year approaching and it generally causes a little bit of panic on my end in hoping that we have enough time to get everything done. I’ve realized over the years though, that learning is never done. It’s a lifelong adventure. I appreciate each of you and your students and the positive difference they make at school.
You have probably read the most recent health orders for Wyoming. They were updated on March 26. Most of the restrictions that were put in place on businesses a year ago have been lifted. However, the social distancing and mask requirements at school are still in place. I want to encourage everyone to continue to sanitize and wash hands regularly and to continue to send a mask with your students each day.
Attached to this newsletter is our Title I School-Parent Compact. We have recently applied to be a schoolwide Title I school and wanted to share this document with you. It covers a lot of what we hope to accomplish in our Title I program.
Next year will bring several staffing changes to CES. The district has made the decision to go back to one principal over both CHS and CES. The district has hired Mr. Kenneth Dietz from Worland to take over both schools. Mr. Warner and Mr. Teichert are both retiring. I will be teaching 6th grade. Mrs. Warner will move to 4th grade. Mrs. Stoor will be moving to 3rd grade, and we will be hiring a half-time kindergarten teacher. We will still have all day kindergarten, and I anticipate that all the core subjects in kindergarten will be taught by our new teacher.
Thank you for all you do. It’s always my hope that as a school we can be a partner with you in helping teach your children. Happy Easter!
U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is extending flexibilities to allow free meals to continue to be available to all children throughout the entire 2020-2021 school year. This unprecedented move is part of USDA’s unwavering commitment to ensuring all children across America have access to nutritious food as the nation recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. For students in Lincoln County School District #2 this means that breakfast and lunches will continue to be provided at no cost past the previous deadline of December 31, 2020.
Dear Parents and Students,
School is only a couple days away. I am so excited to begin a new year. I wanted to emphasize a few items before we open the doors:
We look forward to seeing you on Monday!
