The Missoula County Youth Crisis Diversion Project recently launched a website to guide parents and other professionals through crisis situations and community services. It gives adults ideas for interventions to try with youth in a variety of crises, and then breaks down who they should call if they need outside help. It also gives overviews of systems the youth may be involved in such as mental health, school, Youth Court, Child and Family Services, etc. and provides contact information for a wide range of agencies and providers. The website is www.missoulayouthcrisis.org and was generously funded by Missoula County Public Schools Department of Education Counseling Grant  and Youth Homes.

Congratulations to our very own Colleen Windell!  She has been selected as a Montana state-level finalist for this year's Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) Program.  Colleen is one of seven math and science teachers who were selected statewide for this prestigious award.  Congratulations Colleen!

Halloween is right around the corner, and students will be in various neighborhoods around Missoula.  There are a lot of bears around the Missoula area; parents can expect bear activity within and along the urban wild land interface---areas such as Grant Creek, Clinton, Bonner, South Hills, and elsewhere.  It is important that we make students aware that areas with a lot of fruit trees and native berries may have bear activity. 

The school nurse tracks illness trends by keeping track of the number of students out with fever.  If your child is home and has a fever, please mention that in your message.  Your child should remain home for a full 24 hours, fever free, before returning to school.  Thank you.
