    Good Afternoon Wolfpack Families:

    Thank you to our families for another great week at Chief Charlo. Below are several important items relevant to the next few weeks of school. 

    The District communicated an update from our special school board meeting last week. As you may know, the district approved continuing our Phased 1 schedule until at least November 6th. I have also added the approved schedule through November 6th below. Of note, please familiarize yourself with our schedule for next week. For the week of October 12th, students have school Monday-Wednesday, with no school on Thursday the 15th and Friday the 16th. Here is the schedule.


    • Monday, October 12th-Remote Learning for ALL students
    • Tuesday, October 13th-Group "A" in person instruction (Remote learning at home for Group "B")
    • Wednesday-Group "B" in person instruction (Remote Learning at home for Group "A")
    • No school or remote learning Thursday October 15th and Friday October 16th
    • ALL students have remote learning on Monday October 19th
    I recognize this is a unique schedule and we will also text message our families every day next week with reminders.


    Remote Learning Next Week:

    All students have remote learning on Monday, October 12th. Group "B" students have remote learning on Tuesday, and Group "A" students have remote learning on Wednesday. Students are not receiving in person instruction or remote learning on Thursday the 15th or Friday the 16th.

    Week 7 STEAM challenge and "Specialists" Activities:

    For our week 7 "STEAM challenge" we wanted to include a school wide Original Works activity for all students, regardless if a family decides to purchase the artwork. 

    Families can also continue to access additional "specialist" activities in the link below. Our music, HPE, counselor and art teachers will share an activity a week. Again, these are additional and optional activities families can utilize if they want more.

    • Families can view this link and choose which activity they want to explore for a specific week
    • Specialist Activities Here.
    Halloween Update:
    We will have Halloween celebrations for "A" and "B" groups this year. "A" students will have a classroom celebration on Oct 28th, and "B" group students will have a Halloween celebration on Oct 30th. Students can wear a costume to school for the day. We will have classroom specific activities and classroom treats from the school/PTO. We will have much more information on Halloween in the coming weeks but we wanted to make sure you had the dates down early.
    Parent Teacher Conference Update:
    The District has moved back fall parent-teacher conferences this year. Conferences will be held the week of November 16th. Teachers will be sending out additional information around conferences later this month. The week of November 9th will be a regular school week. 
    We appreciate all the support and flexibility from our families to start the year. Please reach out to your teacher or me directly with any questions or concerns.
