It has been a busy first month of school for our young Huskies! It has been full of developing routines within the school day and interacting with students, staff, and parents. Thank you all for your support as we continue to Learn Under Construction.
Over the past month we have been completing NWEA baseline testing with all students in both math and ELA. We are wrapping that process up with students this week.
As with the start of any school year, there are many different kinds of sicknesses that are floating around out there. Obviously, we want every student to remain in school; however, if your student has a fever, is vomiting, has diarrhea, has bad pain, or coughing that will not stop, then they will not benefit from being in school. Please keep students with these symptoms home until they are symptom free for 24 hours without medicine.

Mrs. Chovanec's Puppy Parade
Mrs. Chovanec’s first grade class read a story about a dog who learned to read. They made puppy floats at home to celebrate reading, and then shared their floats with their friends by having a parade! Enjoy the photos below!

Breckenridge Elementary Celebrates Dot Day!
September 15th is International Dot Day. I always read The Dot by Ken Reynolds to my new kindergarteners at the start of the school year.
The story is about a child who "just can't do it" but throughout the pages realizes that they simply need to "make a mark and see where it takes them".
Photos are below of their art work that accompanies this story!

Summer bond work is starting to wind down. It was a bit more difficult to get some of our projects completed as quickly as we'd hoped due to limited resources. Our HS HVAC project is awaiting several finishing touches, but the HS gym will be able to be used very soon. The MS bleachers and lockers throughout the HS/MS have been installed and both look great!
Work on the Elementary addition is ramping up. All PK-5th grades are fit snugly and making things work this year. Our electives like art are taking place in the cafeteria and band is on a cart and visiting each classroom. Title pull outs are taking place where we can find a quiet spot like the hallway or the library. The new addition will be taking shape with exterior walls. The intention is to have the building enclosed before the winter months, and interior work will take place this winter. Our staff in both buildings should be commended for their ability to be flexible and adjust to the changes that construction has caused for them in their work.
Plans for next summer's bond work are wrapping up and those projects will begin next spring. We're looking forward to the completed projects and making our school a safe, clean, and inviting environment for learning and our community. Thank you for your continued support of Breckenridge Community Schools as we continue to "Learn Under Construction".

Keep the Huskies Healthy!
If your student is a close contact of someone who has tested positive for Covid, we recommend that the student stays home for 10 days. Students may return after the 10 days or with a negative Covid test result and no symptoms.
If your student is a close contact and has no symptoms, they may remain in school as long as they remain symptom free.
If your student is named as a contact and verbalizes or demonstrates any symptoms at school, they will be sent home for 10 days or until a negative COVID test result has been received.
