CORRECTION: Due to a miscommunication, we incorrectly reported that WRESTLING in Boulder was canceled. It appears that the roads that direction are better than we thought. For now, the team is still planning to travel to Boulder. We will reassess the situation in the morning and coaches will contact wrestlers if there is a change. Our apologies for the misinformation and any confusion we may have created.

HOME EVENT PARKING & GAME ADMISSION Parking behind the school facility is for school personnel, coaches and officials only. Please, DO NOT park inside the gate if you are not school personnel. All spectator admission to the gym should be through the front entrances. The back entrance will be locked and should be accessed by players, coaches, officials and school personnel only. We understand it is less convenient to utilize the front entrance, but we cannot have 28 vehicles parked behind the school for emergency access reasons like the last home event. We also need spectators to enter through the front for compliance with district safety and admission responsibilities, even if you have a pass. Please do not use the back entrance. Thank you for your cooperation,

As we head into the 2nd half of the school year, there are a few informational items to share. First, in order to do a better job teaching digital citizenship and appropriate cell phone usage, we are tightening up enforcement of School Board Policy 3630.0 regarding student cell phone usage. It is available on the school website under "District Information," and "Board of Education." If you send a text to your student, don't be alarmed if they don't respond immediately. They can still do so between classes, or you can call the office to relay a message. Our goal is to allow the students some freedom from their devices so they can focus better on their academics while they are in school. If they violate this policy, their phones will be confiscated and kept in the office until the end of the day. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Wilson. On a brighter note, there will be no school on February 3 or March 10. Mr. Gordon was able to manipulate the schedule to add some time to each day to allow for some additional 3-day weekends. The school board approved these changes at the January meeting, so enjoy some extra time off with your children or get some extra work out of them!

Due to road conditions, we had to make changes to tonight's schedule. The C squad boys' game is cancelled. The JV boys, varsity boys, and varsity girls will be leaving the school on the same bus at 12:00 and taking an alternate route through Shelby and Havre to avoid snow and ice conditions. Coaches should be in contact with parents and/or players about who is going. The JV boys' game will still start at 4:30, and varsity schedules remain the same. Depending on road conditions, they may take the same route home or may come through Great Falls if it improves. We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused and appreciate everyone's understanding in keeping our student-athletes safe.

After checking some of the roads early this morning, I have decided that we will continue to run the bus routes this morning. There is a fair amount of drifting snow, especially on the north edges of the east/west roads. I have instructed the drivers to take it as slow as necessary to be safe and to use alternate routes if necessary. Parents should get a message if their child(ren) cannot be picked up. If you know the bus will not be able to get to your house, please contact your driver. Bus routes will likely be a little behind their regular schedules today. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding.
