Happy New Year!

Today was the first day of our second semester. It is hard to believe that the school year is half way over. Reports cards will be mailed out early next week.

Signatures Needed

When report cards are mailed out next week, there are two forms that we need signed and returned in addition to report cards. Several changes and addendums were made to the handbook during the fall so we are asking families to resign the handbook verification form. You can find the changes and additions on the district website. The second form is a new Montana law with the Office of Public Instruction requesting permission to include child photos for the missing child photo repository. There is more information on the form, and you can always call the school if you have additional questions. Please sign and return the form stating whether you grant permission or not for your child(ren)'s photo to be included.

Technology Survey

We are asking families to please complete this short survey regarding your technology capabilities at home if you haven't already done so. The link is below. This will help us as we continue to improve the technology across our district as well as prepare in the event of a school closure. We have NO plans at this time to close school, but we are thinking about all possibilities.

Adult Lunch Accounts

We know that some of our parents love to come and eat breakfast and/or lunch with their child. With the recent system updates to Infinite Campus, there are no longer adult lunch accounts for our parents. If you would like to come and have breakfast or lunch with your child, please bring cash with you. Exact change is helpful. The cost of an adult breakfast is $2.25 and an adult lunch is $3.25.

Missoula Children's Theater

Missoula Children's Theater for students in grades K - 8 will be here the week of January 25. The performance will be on Saturday, January 30. Practices will occur every day of that week including Friday. More information will be coming home soon with students.

Morning Arrival Procedures

As the weather gets colder we just want to remind parents that the doors of Bo Peep and Redwater remain locked until 7:45. There are no teachers on duty until after this time. Students should not be pulling or banging on the doors trying to get in. Students are welcome to go to the cafeteria to enjoy a free breakfast every morning.

Winter is Here!

The cold weather and snow are here whether we are ready for it or not. Please make sure your children are properly dressed for the weather. Students will be going outside for recess as often as possible. Hats, boots, gloves, coat, and maybe snow pants too would be great to keep our students warm.

Sports Schedules

We are doing our best to keep everyone updated on sports schedules for both junior high and high school. They are constantly changing due to COVID, so please be patient with us. You can check the Weekly Wildcat Events update on Facebook when it is posted on Mondays as they will be the most accurate at that time.

Food Service - Free Breakfast and Lunch

Beginning October 1, all students in the district will receive free breakfast and lunch through December 31. The Summer Food Program through the USDA has expanded their program and Circle students are eligible during this time.

** This program has been extended through June 30, 2021!! All students currently enrolled in Circle Public Schools will receive free breakfast and lunch through the remainder of the school year.
