Superintendent's Message

The COVID-19 Virus is a major concern for the district. I am in contact the Las Animas County Health Department via conference call every weekday at 10 a.m. and have been reading guidance from the CDC, CDE and CDHE. The Board of Education voted to extend Spring Break with home-based instruction (in some form) beginning on March 30th. The Governor, by executive order, will not allow face-to-face instruction until after April 17th, 2020.  If we are allowed to go back to school in a "normal" setting, it will be on April 20, 2020.  I will keep updating information as it becomes available.

At this point CHSAA has canceled all of the Spring sports practices and events until April 18th. They will then make a determination for the rest of the season.

The district received the Make It Happen Grant to help implement the Comprehensive Health and Wellness Plan for the District developed by the Task Force as part of the AIM-XL grant last year. We'll be convening a Wellness Group to help with implementation. I am so excited about this work. I am a member of the WISH Steering Committee for the MIH Grant and Resiliency project with DU.


I'm proud to be a Mustang!
