Just a reminder there is school this week for Henry's Fork Elementary. Potato Harvest will begin next week on September 26.
The 4th Grade has been learning about rocks and fossils in Science. They ended the unit by carefully breaking apart rocks and looking for their very own fossils. They found some pretty cool ones including a lot of fish!
IDAHO'S EMPOWERING PARENTS GRANTS. We are excited to pass along a great opportunity for families with school-aged children. Idaho's Empowering Parents grant application is now open! This program provides eligible families with grant funds to use towards education services and devices for their K-12 children in an effort to recover learning loss as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Click on the link below for more information. https://empoweringparents.idaho.gov/
SCHOOL MENUS. We have received a lot of requests to add the monthly lunch menus to the website. These have now been added to the top of the Child Nutrition page. From the District homepage (or from any school homepage), click on the "Child Nutrition" button below the photo gallery. The different menu options will be listed near the top of the page (see highlighted area on the image). The daily menus (and even the monthly menus) can also be accessed using the Fremont County Schools 215 app.
The Idaho Association for the Education of Young Children has learning kits available for any 4 year old child living within the boundaries of Fremont County Joint School District #215. If you have not yet received one for your child, you can come and pick one up at the front office at Henry's Fork Elementary.
NEW WEBSITE! The new website for Fremont County Joint School District #215 is live! Although the site is not completely finished and will be a work in progress for the next few months, we wanted to get it out as quickly as possible. The address is still www.sd215.net. Each of the schools can be accessed through the "Schools" menu in the upper right corner of the district home page. At the current time, the Board of Trustees and Child Nutrition links are also ready to go, and the Live Feed, News, and Events are all functional. Many of the others tabs are still under construction. You may also access information for your preferred schools and district through a new app available in the Apple and Google Play stores (search for Fremont County Schools 215). More information on the app and the new features will be coming in the next week or so. Thank you for your patience and your suggestions for improving communication. We will continue to work to make this better.
HARVEST BREAK CHANGES. In a special meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Board voted to make changes to the harvest break schedule to better accommodate the needs of local farmers on both ends of the county.
