Calendar Revisions

Due to the all of the unknowns and potential for an influx of folks into our area for the solar eclipse, at their July meeting, the board voted to change the start day for students to Wednesday, August 23. This, of course, has implications on the calendar. We will need to make up that day. The last day of school for students will be on Friday, May 25, 2018.

Additionally, we will push the beginning of staff development days one day forward. Existing staff will report on Wednesday, August 16 and new staff on Tuesday, August 15. We still must maintain 10 days of PD per the funding model, so the last PD of the year, May 25, will move to October 27 (this was going to be a vacation day, students will still have it off and can still attend regional events if they want). 

The final change made was to the date of our open house. The open house will now be on Tuesday, September 7, 2017. We invite you to visit our Calendar page to download the revised calendar.

Shoshoni Schools Receives Donation From Rocky Mountain Power Foundation

Thanks to a $2,000 grant from the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation, the Shoshoni School Wrangler Pack Program will be able to continue sending home food to families of students in our community.

“We greatly appreciate the grant award, which will help us continue to feed the district’s students,” said a representative of the district.

“We are pleased to support the district’s Wrangler Pack Program with this donation from our Foundation,” said Mike Morrissey, Rocky Mountain Power regional business manager. “As part of this community, Rocky Mountain Power is grateful for all the work Shoshoni Schools do in our community.” 

About the Wrangler Pack Program: October 2016 marked the end of the first year of the Wrangler Pack Program. At that time, Shoshoni Recreation District (SRD) began helping by storing the food and packing the weekly bags. At Christmas, 14 families received boxes with food for Christmas and the entire holiday break. The boxes were packed at SRD by staff and extra volunteers. In the past school year, a family received one or two bags full of food per week depending on how many children are in the family. A box of non-perishable food was also provided for each family at the end of the school year for the summer.

About the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation: The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation is part of the PacifiCorp Foundation, one of the largest utility-endowed foundations in the United States. The foundation was created in 1988 by PacifiCorp, an electric utility serving 1.8 million customers in six Western states as Rocky Mountain Power (Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho) and Pacific Power (Oregon, Washington, and California). The foundation’s mission, through charitable investments, is to support the growth and vitality of the communities served by Pacific Power and Rocky Mountain Power.
