It is hard to believe that we are in the last month of school. We have overcome many obstacles this year. I am proud of our staff and students for remaining strong and overcoming the adversity that was faced. While we did have quarantines with various groups throughout the year, we only were out for four days as a whole. An accomplishment to be commended and I am so appreciative of everyone’s efforts to make this a reality for our students.

Looking back on the school year, we have many things to celebrate. We achieved Level 1 Certification for our elementary school in our Highly Reliable Schools ~ Safe, Supportive, and Collaborative Culture and our secondary received a provisional certification which will be revisited in September. All certified staff participated in vocabulary and assessment training to increase rigor in the classroom as well as a full day training on The New Art and Science of Teaching with a focus on engagement. We added classes based on student feedback and interest which included Ag at both the high and middle school levels, Outdoor Education, and psychology. Flexibility in scheduling at the secondary level was also incorporated which allows students the ability to take classes required throughout their high school years as opposed to required ones each year. We re-established the Tiger Wall of Fame with this years inductee being Scott Rienks. We received the RISE (Response, Intervention, and Student Equity) grant in collaboration with South Routt School District for over $1 million. The students and staff re-established themselves into our new facility through the BEST grant and bond allowance. All staff participated in the Standard Response Protocol safety training. We held homecoming events, prom, and have a scheduled graduation ceremony outside. Our students were able to participate in their respective sports even though they were somewhat shortened seasons. BoardDocs was implement for all Board of Education meetings and documents so everyone had access to the documents being reviewed. And, we are utilizing Frontline as part of our hiring for excellence. While we still have many things to work on and improve upon, we are striving for excellence in all areas.

The last Parent/Community Townhall for the year will be held on May 4th starting at 6:00. My hope is to continue these next year and be able to be in person. But, until then, here is the login information:

As of now, our current free and reduced lunch numbers are 19% for the district. This is a drastic decrease from the past when we averaged around 35%. These low number affect our ability to get several grants and reduce our state funding per student. Applications are available on the website or by contacting the school. Application forms will be part of next years back to school packet so we can assure everyone completes them even if meals continue to be free for all students.

At the Board meeting in April, staff recognition went to Karissa Humenik, Jeff Schlim, and Kalee Voegtle Thank you for all you do for our students on a daily basis! You are appreciated. Our amazing students honored this month were Chase Howard, Brenna DaSilva, and Leah Carrouth. It is an honor for us to serve you in your educational journey.

Respectfully,

Christy L. Sinner, Ph.D., Superintendent

In like a lion and out like a lamb as the saying goes. Hopefully this will mean some snow for us. While some don’t like the snow, it is so needed. With March, the end of the third quarter comes as does parent teacher conferences and spring break. The quarter ends on March 25th with parent teacher conferences being on March 24th and 25th. Look for information to be coming soon. Spring break is March 29th – April 1st with students returning on April 5th.

Our next virtual Parent/Community Townhall meeting is scheduled for March 3rd. The zoom information is:

Budget season is also upon us. We are starting to look at needs and wants for the upcoming school year. Individual meetings with department leads will start the process next week. Each lead will then work with their staff to determine what they need to continue to move forward to pursue our district goals. Funding allocations are still not fully known at this time but all indications are that they will stay flat or possibly be lower than they have been in the previous years. We will continue to work through the process to align our budget to assure fiscal responsibility. The final budget will not be finalized by the Board of Education until June.

We are continuing to experience some quarantines. While our numbers have stayed low, it has impacted our students and staff in numerous ways. The social/emotional toll it plays on missing school, being away from peers, and not being able to participate in school activities has impacted all. Continuing to stay with in-person learning is our priority as we know this is what is best for our students and community. Please help us by honoring guidelines put into place.

In February, we had staff training on academic vocabulary as part of our Highly Reliable Schools (HRS) work with the Marzano Institute. The vocabulary work will become part of our curriculum dashboard and aligns key vocabulary per grade level/content to eliminate gaps that may exist. Our March training with Marzano is focusing on assessments within the classroom. Both these training align with our HRS certification. On February 19th, our elementary received full Level 1 certification for Safe, Supportive, and Collaborative Culture and our secondary received a provisional certification. The secondary will revisit the certification process in September to confirm that what they have worked on this school year is fully in place. Congratulations to both schools on the work, accomplishment, and focus that has gone into making this a reality. We will continue to move forward and work on achieving Level 2 certification for Effective Teaching in Every Classroom.

February staff that was recognized for their dedication and hard work that was above and beyond were Mariah Woodley at the elementary level, Lexi Cyphers at the secondary level, and Danielle Campbell at the district level. Thank you for all you do for our students, district, and community! Students honored include Jayden Stone, Kasey Singer, and Michael Pitney. Thank you for your dedication and continued hard work. Congratulations to all!

[02/10/21]   High School Closure 2/10/21 PLEASE READ IMMEDIATELY

Dear Parents of Hayden Valley High School,

As we move into February, I hope this finds you enjoying the outdoors and spending quality time with those you value. We have had some exciting news with being awarded the RISE (Response, Intervention, and Student Equity) grant from Governor Polis’ Emergency Education Relief Fund in the amount of $1,050,500. Yes! Over a million in the collaboration grant with South Routt School District. The press release is attached in case you missed it. Exciting opportunity for our students and communities. More pathways to come for our students!

As a reminder, students continue to eat free throughout this school year. However, we still need everyone to complete their Free and Reduced Lunch forms. These are available on our website under Departments then Food Service. The reason this is so important to us, even with food being free to all, is that numerous grants use this data as a qualification point. Our current numbers disqualify us from numerous grants that we would like to continue receiving and some we are wanting to apply for. If you have any questions, please contact Susan Hart at [email protected]

We continue to hold virtual Parent/Community Meetings. While I would prefer to be in person, as I know several of you would also, we will continue utilizing this way to connect until restrictions are lifted. Our next meeting is on Wednesday, February 3rd.

We are pleased to be moving into the start of wrestling and basketball. The season will look different as we are limited on the number of spectators allowed in the gym at one time. The limit is 50 so each player will get two wristbands to give to their family. This will allow those with bands to pay to get into the game. After each game (ie. JV girls), we are required to empty and clean the gym before the next group of spectators can come in. This means that we will clear the gym 3 times and clean 3 times before the end
of the night when all teams are playing and then the gym will be cleaned by our custodial staff before anyone else uses it. Yes, we are taking this seriously and following all guidelines in order to keep our students and families healthy. We want to make sure we do everything we can to keep our sports season going. We plan to stream the home events so be on the lookout for that information. A huge thank you to Danielle Campbell for all the work she has put in to make this work.

We are pleased to announce that we are re-establishing the efforts of honoring graduates from Hayden High through the Tiger Wall of Fame. While we hope to make some changes to the process in the near future, we want to move forward with what is in place and start honoring one graduate each year. On our district website under District Information then Information, you will find an Alumni link. On that page, it describes what is currently in place and has access to the brochure that outlines the process and an information form to complete. We will be accepting submissions until noon on Friday, February 19, 2021 for the 2020-21 school
year. The committee put in place will review all submissions and make the final recommendation prior to the end of March. The desire is to honor the selected candidate at the awards ceremony held prior to the end of school. The ceremony will be in person if allowable. Please submit all nominations to both Judy and Christy.

YAMPA VALLEY SCHOOL DISTRICTS AWARDED $1M RISE GRANT
Hayden and South Routt Awarded Funds to Revitalize Roots and Build Pathways of the Future

DENVER – The school districts of Hayden and South Routt have been awarded a $1,050,500 Response, Innovation, and Student Equity (RISE) grant from Governor Polis’ Emergency Education Relief Fund. These Northwest Colorado districts are addressing their economic and educational equity gaps through an
innovative regional approach.

The regional collaboration will share existing strong programs, staffing, and resources as they co-create and implement an aligned PK-12 curriculum and pathways model for all students. Diverse and relevant pathways will include those to honor the historical vitality of the Yampa Valley (agriculture, tourism), leverage present
in-demand jobs (skilled trades), and build sustainable pathways of the future (energy, technology, entrepreneurship) – all linked to student and economic need. Real-world hands-on experiences for students such as a food production and processing kitchen, greenhouses for sustainable practices, shops for auto mechanics, welding, and construction; and mobile labs with storefronts designed and constructed by students crosscutting all pathways will be implemented. Hayden and South Routt will also increase parent and community engagement as well as their capacity for innovation and change through ongoing training and technical assistance.

Small rural school districts across Colorado face well-known challenges providing and sustaining access to high-quality innovative learning experiences as well as diverse economic opportunities. The impact of the COVID-19 crisis has only further compounded the existing, ever-present barriers rural communities like those in Routt County face daily, such as transportation and travel times, economic opportunity, housing and cost of living, broadband access, declining enrollment, and teacher shortages. Further, the pandemic revealed a harsh reality that the food system is broken – a new realization for many in Routt County accustomed to its local ranching roots. This, coupled with the imminent closures of local coal mines, presents an opportunity and urgency to revitalize their schools and economy.

“Support from the RISE Education Fund allows us to revitalize the region’s agricultural roots and build sustainable pathways of the future through regional collaboration and an investment in the next generation of students who will take the Yampa Valley to and through the unknown future that lies ahead,” said Hayden
School District Superintendent Dr. Christy Sinner. “Hayden and South Routt School Districts, its students, families, and local partners deeply appreciate this support through which we can realize our shared vision for the future of the Yampa Valley.”

Colorado Succeeds, who supported the districts as a Planning and Design Support Partner, will continue to work closely with Hayden and South Routt as a design and implementation partner, supporting overall project management as well as bringing in strategic training, technical assistance, and evaluation supports in
collaboration with Homegrown Talent Initiative partner Colorado Education Initiative. Colorado State University and its Routt County Extension Office will also support the program development.
