TIPS FOR PARENTS IN A SCHOOL EMERGENCY

Review these important safety tips in case of an emergency. 

TIPS FOR PARENTS IN A SCHOOL EMERGENCY

❖Everyone’s child is our priority. Adherence to these tips will
help us ensure the safety of all.

❖Because it takes time to gather and disseminate accurate
information, it is likely you will receive social media
information before you receive official communication from
the District. Please don’t overreact, even if that information
comes from your child.

❖Do not call or go to your child’s school.

❖Remain calm and patient. Official communication from our
Superintendent will come via one or more of the following:

● Robo Call
● Email/Text Notification
● District Website
● Television/Radio Alerts

❖If you do hear from your child, please encourage them to
listen to their teachers. Reassure them of their safety.

Cold Weather Reminders

Happy Fall to Everyone!

Just wanted to remind all of you of our cold weather procedures. Please do not leave students at bus stops and make sure students are dressed appropriately. We are entering the cold weather season and it's time for cold weather protocols. Please be safe as we enter this winter season.

From our local weather service, please see the following forecast:

We wanted to give a heads up that there will be a shift to colder weather and a good chance of some lower elevation snow from Monday night to Thursday. Here are the main points:

- Lower elevation snow is not expected to be heavy, but impacts to travel are possible due to slick/icy roads.

- Periods of lower elevation snow are likely along and west of a Roundup to Billings to Sheridan line beginning Monday night. Eastern areas will be mostly dry and cold, with gusty NW winds.

-This will be the coldest air yet of the season. High temperatures will be in the 20s to mid 30s Tuesday through Thursday. Nighttime lows will range from the single digits to lower 20s.
