We’re excited to welcome you back for the 2021-22 school year!

For years we have told students: 

               Life can sometimes be hard, but we can do hard things! 

Last year we all proved that true! Facing the unknown fears and challenges of the pandemic was definitely hard, but working together we had a successful school year that we are very proud of! But with that said ....I am hoping for a more ‘normal’ school year!  :

We welcome our new staff members: Mrs. Nicky Banzhaf (English), Mr. Weston Burch (Paraprofessional), Mr. Michael Gieseler (Custodian), Mr. Caleb Haskell (Math), Mrs. Jeri Lyons (Science) and Mr. Andrew Smith (Social Studies).

Student Schedules:  The late addition of a half-time teacher created a ripple effect in schedule changes. Included in this letter is the official student schedule. Mrs. Watson will be available August 5-6 and 9-11 for any requested schedule changes. Schedules can not be changed after the start of school except for special circumstances with teacher and administrative approvals.

*Required Chromebook Orientation Programs:   August 9, 11 and 13th at 5:00p and 6:15p. Join any one of these six offered sessions to be assigned a 1:1 chromebook from the school. Chromebooks will be handed out after each session. A parent/guardian as well as the student must attend. Those not able to make an above listed date will need to schedule an appointment with the District Technology Office by calling 432-0718.

*If you plan to use your own chromebook/laptop/iPad, you will still need to attend one of the sessions for important information about digital citizenship and acceptable use. Otherwise, personal devices will not have access to the school wifi without attending an Orientation Program.

Fall Sports Meeting:  This meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 10th at 6:00p. The current plan is to meet in the Auditorium before the break out sessions with individual fall sport coaches.  This is an informational evening for high school student-athletes and parents.

Open House:  We’ll host a short open house opportunity on Monday, August 23rd from 6:00-7:00 for families that would like to walk through the school or meet the high school staff.

Our first day of school for students is Tuesday, August 17th. We’ll run 1:30 schedules all week to make time for other necessary student and staff needs.  View our district and school websites at www.chadronschools.org for additional information or give our office a call if you have questions at 432-0707.    

Enjoy your remaining summer break!
