Charlo Book Fair: Book fair in the Library April 15-18 from 7:30-10:00; 12:00-1:00; and4:00-6:00 respectively. Buy one, get one free!

Front Doors Locked: Recently we have seen more foot traffic than we are used to around the school on our streets. We have had no issues but for safety reasons we will now have our front doors locked during the day. Visitors will have to buzz in and be allowed to enter the building. This is not uncommon for schools to do this and we feel it’s an appropriate measure to take. It might be inconvenient at first but over time it will become a good safety habit.

Vaccination Clinic: Due to lack of interest the Vaccination Clinic which was scheduled for Apr. 9, it has been cancelled.

Front Doors Locked: Recently we have seen more foot traffic than we are used to around the school on our streets. We have had no issues but for safety reasons in addition to other doors around campus we will now also have our front doors locked during the day. Visitors will have to buzz in and be allowed to enter the building. This is not uncommon for schools to do this and we feel it’s an appropriate measure to take. It might be inconvenient at first but over time it will become a good safety habit.

Parents, Students, and Community Members: I want to thank all of you for your concern, patience, and thoughtful questions about the recent threat situation the school experienced on Tuesday. All of us are keenly aware of the seriousness of such issues. It is scary. It is frustrating. It is stressful. One of the toughest things about it is communication. The school is stuck between a rock and hard place when it comes to disseminating information. There are all kinds of considerations: safety of students and staff, public’s right to know, individual’s right to privacy, and the list goes on. I have listed a few questions we received since the announcement on the threat. These are questions we can answer so I hope this helps with some of the apprehension all of us experience in these situations. Anytime you have questions please do not hesitate to call or set up an appointment.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! May the Luck of Irish Shine Down Upon You!

“May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.”

Rumor Mill: We really do appreciate calls and questions here at school especially when it involves rumors. Two weeks ago there was a rumor about several teachers resigning at a school board meeting. That rumor is not true. At this time, one teacher has announced her intention to retire. To date, there have been no other resignations. I was called today regarding several open hourly positions that were rumored to be available at the school. There are no openings for hourly positions at this time at the school. If there are job opportunities which become available they will be listed on the school facebook page, with OPI jobs for teachers, and/or Lake County Job Service.

Misconception on MTDA: This week it was brought to my attention by parents there is a misconception about our high school classes and the Montana Digital Academy Classes. It seems there are some who believe that MTDA classes are used as core classes rather than having face to face instruction with certified teachers. This perception is false! We use MTDA classes for foreign languages, credit recovery, and elective enhancement. Our required core classes are taught face to face by certified teachers. Please do not hesitate to call with any questions regarding instruction at any level at Charlo.

Question of the Week: None submitted.

Viking View Valentine's Day Edition

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Question of the Week: When will out of district applications be available for the 2024-2025 school year? Beginning on July 1, 2024 a new law takes effect concerning non resident students attending schools. This law changed some previous requirements for school districts so there is work being done on new school board policy by all Montana Schools. Charlo is currently working through the policy as discussion items at monthly board meetings. We hope to have an approve policy by April. After the policy has been adopted by the school board then applications will become available.

If you have a question of the week please email it to [email protected].

District Basketball Tournament: The Vikings head to Polson for the 14C Basketball Tournament Feb. 15-17.

School Counselor Week: This week is National School Counselor’s Week. Charlo is blessed to have Marie Michels as a school counselor. She does an outstanding job! Thank you Ms. Michels!

Parent/Guardian Contact Changes: If your phone number or email changes please notify the office. Additionally, please set up your voicemail and clean out your messages. When trying to contact parents it is important to be able to at least leave a message. About 1 in 3 times the mailbox has not been set up-the mailbox is full-the phone number has been disconnected. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Second Semester: We are two weeks into the second semester already. Mid-terms are on Feb. 22. One thing all us can work on is planning ahead so please stay in touch with your student’s progress in the classroom. Given our student information system, email, and a simple phone call; it’s easier than ever to keep up with how your student is doing in the classroom. Don’t wait until mid-terms or the last week of the quarter to check on grades. If you have questions about monitoring student progress please contact the office at 644-2206.

Attendance: Showing up is the number one reason for success in the classroom, on the team, or at your job. Conversely, poor attendance is the greatest challenge to accomplishing goals and being successful in academics, athletics, and at your place of work. Please stress the importance of good attendance. Stress the importance of being on time to class. They are important characteristics that can make or break achievement in all facets of life!
