No School on Monday, Sept. 7

In observance of Labor Day, we will not have school.

Back-to-School Nights

Our teachers are working on formats for these important meetings. During this time, you will learn about what your child will learn this year, expectations, and how you can support. Your child's teacher will communicate additional details. Here is our schedule so far for these online sessions:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 8- 1st grade 5:30-6:30 pm; 5th grade 6:30-7:30 pm

Ongoing Materials Distribution and Library Checkout

Beginning next Friday, Sept. 11, our teachers will be able to distribute materials to families on an ongoing basis on Friday's between 9-3. Your child's teacher will communicate when they have materials for you to pickup and collect. This will be handled outside the building and in a safe manner.

Beginning Sept. 18, students will be able to checkout books from the library by reserving online. Mrs. Powers, our Media Specialist, will be working with students in the coming about how to do this. Library books will be available for pickup on Friday's with materials distribution.

More details will be shared through our classroom teachers.

Attendance Updates

This is a friendly reminder to call our attendance line at 970-488-5551 or use ParentVue to report any absences of your child. We want to remind you that we need to take attendance each day (M-F). Teachers will take attendance during morning meeting time and submit that to the office. We know that there will be times when students are not able to access online at the time of morning meetings, so please work with your teacher to let them know you were able to access online activities at some point during the day.

Special Note from Werner Library

Hey Werner Wildcats!

We are going to be collecting those books that you checked out in the spring!

There will be collection bins in the front of the school starting Tuesday September 8th-Friday September 11th. between 8am and 4 pm.

If you still have books, please make every effort to get those back this next week, so you can check out new books. I will be sending an email to those students if they have outstanding books, so make sure and check your email. IF you have any questions please email me at mseavey@psdschools.org

Mrs Powers will be sharing with you all how we will be doing library checkout next week in media specials!
