Welcome Back Students
I would personally like to welcome all of the students in Garfield County School District to a new school year. I know the teachers are ready to welcome students into their new classrooms. I have confidence in the teachers in our District to provide a caring environment where students feel safe, valued and receive a high level of academic instruction. The District has hired nine highly qualified new teachers for the 2015-2016 school year. The teachers have participated in GCSD Core Academy where they have developed scope and sequence in the new Reading Wonders program. I appreciate the time and effort the teachers have dedicated to understanding the new reading curriculum. Parents of elementary students will see the new Reading Wonders program coming home with students this year.
Many employees have spent numerous hours during the summer to prepare for the first day of school. I appreciate the custodians and classified personnel in the District who work during summer to assure the facilities, school lunch, and transportation are ready to begin the year. For elementary students, please write your students names on backpack, lunchboxes, or items your students may leave behind. Please review the materials sent home by the schools and your child’s teacher at the beginning of the year to help them understand the procedures and expectations in the classroom. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher for additional clarifications or the building administrator. Students, welcome to the beginning of another successful year!

Reducing Student Fees
On August 20th, the Garfield County School Board will be considering changes to the student registration fee schedule for the 2015-2016 school year. If the new fee schedule receives approval by the School Board, parents who have students in 7th – 12th grades will see a substantial savings. The 2015-2016 fee schedule removes the following items:
PE locker $1.50
Shop Class $10.00
Foods Class $10.00
Cheerleading Participation $25.00
AP Testing Fee $40.00
Total savings to the parents and students is $112.50. The Garfield County School District is financially stable with no need to collect these additional fees at the high school level. The School Board will be considering the following fee schedule for the 2015-2016 school year. Elementary schools do not collect any student fees in the District. If you have questions or comments, please contact me in the District office at 435-676-8821.
