This takes the place of Morning Walk, when your child arrives after 8:05 they are welcome to come into their classrooms for an activity of their "choice". Students may still arrive after the earlier time of 7:45 to eat breakfast and then go to Morning Choice. If a student arrives before 8:05 but is not eating breakfast, they will report to the playground to walk until Morning Choice. Please keep in mind this is an unsupervised time.

If your student is absent 3 or more days consecutively, a doctor's note is required. If your student is absent frequently due to illness documentation will be requested.
Did you know that the number of children entering foster care in Montana has skyrocketed in recent years? In 2018 alone, 510 children were removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect in the Billings area, resulting in more than 900 children currently in local foster care. You could be the voice for one of these children by becoming a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate. The next round of CASA training begins in July. Please give CASA of Yellowstone County a call at (406) 259-1233 or visit yellowstonecasa.org to learn more about upcoming information sessions and how you can make a difference in the life of a child.
