Superintendent's Message

I am so proud of our students and staff during this unprecedented time. Everyone has stepped up and transitioned to home-based learning. Great job Mustangs!

The COVID-19 Virus is a major concern for the district and community. 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. I have been sharing the guidance with the Kim Post Office and the Kim Outpost as well as posting it here and on the school FaceBook page.The Governor, by executive order and amendment to the order, will not allow face-to-face instruction until after April 30th, 2020.   I will keep updating information as it becomes available. On Saturday, April 11, 2020 CDE accepted our waiver for instructional hours. This means that we will not need to add hours to the next school year as long as we continue with our home-based education plan.

At this point CHSAA has canceled all of the Spring sports practices and events until April 30th. 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!
