Dear Parents or Guardians,
Let me begin by saying, “Thank you” for taking the initial step in helping your child to increase his or her academic abilities! I am pleased to announce that West Yellowstone School is starting summer math tutoring on weekdays (Monday through Thursday) beginning Monday, June 19th from 9am to 12pm.
We are trying to support students in knowing the basics of mathematics and enhancing math skills for solving real-world problems.
We have created different time slots for student participation:
9:00am-10:00am–Basics of mathematics and number systems

I would like to inform you that we can utilize a math-tutoring program to encourage students to think logically and be confident in their problem-solving skills.

Do you or someone you know have a student entering kindergarten this coming fall? If so, please call the school and register your student for kindergarten by this coming Friday. Please spread the word! This is important for planning our staffing for the upcoming year.
The lockdown is over. This was not a drill. At approximately 2:25 p.m. today, we received a call that there was a 13 year old with a shotgun at the school. We immediately locked the school down and called law enforcement. Law enforcement arrived in under two minutes. There were agents from all agencies. Law enforcement proceeded to clear the building. After clearing the building, we transitioned to a shelter-in-place in the classrooms until dismissal. All students were dismissed at the normal time without incident. It appears as though this was a "swatting" incident. We have no further information to share at this time. All activities, athletics, and after-school programing today are canceled. Monday is a PIR day, and there will be no school. School will resume as normal on Tuesday.
