Paw Print Press 2.0

September 15, 2022

Hello Wolf Pack Families,

September is in its full golden glory, and the mountains have been graced with the first termination dust. The temps are getting cooler, and as we progress into fall, please send students with warmer gear for outdoor recess.

It was wonderful seeing many of our families at our Open House and HG Math Night. It was a great feeling to see everyone in person, and see the pride in our students' faces to show their families around their classroom and school.

This edition of Paw Print Press 2.0 has a few updates, resources, and information about school pictures. If you have any questions please let us know. Looking forward to a great Fall!

Safety Requirements for Drop-off & Pick-up - Please Follow for the Safety of Our Students

Bus Updates & Safety Reminders

Please continue to look for updates from Superintendent Bryantt for overarching updates to our transportation system. Our second busing cohort started up last week. If you are affected in this cohort, we do have the gas gift cards, one per family, available for parent pick-up in the main office. Please note that they are $50.00.

Our traffic patterns are working well and we sincerely appreciate your efforts to have students in school on time. We also appreciate your patience at pick-up. Student safety is our top priority so please be mindful of the 5 mph speed limit on campus and look-out for our walkers/bikers. As it gets dark, extra caution is needed.
