Board Adopts 15-16 Calendar
The Board of Trustees approved the 2015-2016 School Calendar at the December 10th, school board meeting. The calendar has a start date of Aug. 31, a week off at Thanksgiving and two weeks off at Christmas. It moves Spring Break to the week of March 21 so that it aligns with District 93's proposed Spring Break and gives students a week in class before state testing begins. Comments? Send them to us.
More Math Tools, Resources For Parents
As students work to gain a deeper, richer understanding of math with the new Math In Focus curriculum, we want to make sure parents have the resources they need to help their children at home. Learn More
Video tutorials have been added to the district website that include activities parents can do with their children. There are also information letters about different math concepts covered in grades K-6.
In addition, parents now have access to online Math In Focus resources, including assignments, tests, an online version of the textbook, virtual manipulatives and more. For 6th grade see My.HRW.com. Parents can ask their child or their child's teacher for a username & password.
Skyline Seeks Parent Input
Skyline High School's programs are being reviewed this year to make sure they meet the high standards you have come to expect from SHS. All Idaho high schools undergo this kind of rigorous, on-site external review every few years to ensure schools are providing students with opportunities that allow them to reach their full potential. An important part of this accreditation review is feedback from parents. If your child attends Skyline High School please take a few minutes to complete the following online survey about the school and its programs: http://www.advanc-ed.org/survey/public/0799166. All responses are anonymous. If you prefer, paper copies of the survey and Spanish surveys are available in the main office. Questions? Send them to us.
Guidelines For Cold Weather Closures
Eastern Idaho's cold temperatures and severe weather conditions sometimes make it necessary to close schools. In these situations, the Superintendent considers many factors including early morning temperatures, the day’s forecasted temperatures, wind chill and weather conditions. Parents can always decide to keep their children home if they think conditions are too severe for them to go to school. Learn more about winter closures.
