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.

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.

The PK8 Title 1 funds pay for homework club, childcare for PPO meetings, academic support staff, and much more!
This year, we do not have the Title 1 funds to support these activities due to families not applying for free/reduced lunches.
We appreciate the accurate information so that we can appropriately fund the support programs that help make our school incredible!
