Schedule an appointment and results should be available in 24 hours. There is a form enabling you to release the results to the school nurse if that is your wish.
Governor Gordon has approved winter sports.
We will be temporarily limiting Open Gym participation to current students.
We will follow the direction of Sublette County Health Offices. Students who are ill need to be symptom free for a period of 72 hours before returning to school. We will waive the 3 day symptom free requirement upon receipt of a negative test from the Clinic. A negative test enables the student to return to school as soon as they feel well.
All staff members receive a weekly reminder encouraging them to stay home if they do not feel well.
The parent/guardian of any student who is waiting for the 72 hour clearance, or is placed in quarantine/isolation, should contact their principal to arrange for participation in a Classroom Based Virtual Education (CBVE) program while they are unable to attend. Stay current and keep learning.
Staff members may volunteer to be tested for COVID-19.
Want to help us keep school open for students? Wear a Face Covering!
Questions or concerns? Contact the Superintendent/Principal/School Nurse.

Students who had exhibited symptoms associated with COVID/Flu/Strep, especially fever, were required to stay home until they were non-medicated, symptom free for 24 hours. Sublette County Health Offices are now advising that the symptom free period move to 72 hours and we will be following that guidance. A parent may choose to take advantage of the FREE testing now available. We will waive the 3-day symptom free requirement upon receipt of a negative test. A negative test ensures the student can return to school as soon as they feel well.
When we receive notification that a staff member/student has tested positive for COVID-19 we will notify the families in that staff/student’s class or school without identifying the individual(s). Public Health officials will contact the staff/students who need to be placed in isolation/quarantine.
Any student who is waiting for the 72-hour clearance, or is placed in quarantine/isolation, should contact their principal to arrange to participate in a Classroom Based Virtual Education (CBVE) program. The CBVE program should enable them to watch classroom lectures/instruction and keep pace with their assignments and classmates.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the Superintendent’s office or your Principal’s office.
