Let your little eagles fly!

Families--we are looking forward to watching your little eagles fly! Please encourage your child to walk to class on his/her own. We are working to build their independent skills of organizing their belongings and also building relationships with their teachers. We will all take them under our wing and take good care of them. This is why our eagle mascots both reference a heart. We are SOARING with PRIDE and HEART!

BOND for new safety entrance at Paonia K-8 and other schools.

The School Board is considering a no-tax increase bond proposal for the upcoming November 2022 ballot

The current School bond was passed by voters in 2002 and will be paid off in 2023. We are looking for community input as the district considers a NO-TAX INCREASE bond proposal for the upcoming November 2022 ballot. The proposed extension will result in a ZERO DOLLAR increase to be used exclusively on capital projects and will be paid off over a 25-year period. The School Board feels strongly about prioritizing safety-building improvements throughout our district. The funds generated upon approval of this no-increase bond renewal will continue to provide safe and secure facilities for many years.

Every day of school attendance is important to a child's learning and school success. We know you want the very best education for your child. That education can only be achieved if your child is in school each day!

Please help your child get to school each day by:

  • Planning your family vacations during summer or the designated school breaks
  • Teaching your child to be on time for school each day
  • Making sure your child stays home only when he or she is sick
  • Asking your child's doctors to schedule appointments before or after school hours or on school breaks
  • Bringing your child to school before and after his/her daytime doctor appointment
  • Planning family outings such as trips to Disneyland on non-school days

We recognize that illnesses may arise as well as unusual circumstances. When these occur, we urge you to keep an open line of communication with your school staff and teacher(s) to ensure that your student remains engaged in the learning process.

If your child will be absent from school, please let your teacher and the office know ahead of time. If you are able to do so, please call the morning of your child's absence.
