A Message from Our Superintendent

January 5, 2023

Superintendent Deb Smith

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Happy New Year! The district is offering to provide each student that shows proof of COVID-19 vaccination a brand new iPad. This is a token of appreciation for students who have received the COVID-19 vaccination as a measure to protect themselves, their families, and our school community. Please provide a copy of your students’ vaccination record card to the school nurse. Students will have until the end of May to receive the vaccination incentive.


The winter season has finally arrived. The snow brings colder temperatures, so please remind your student to wear a coat and dress appropriately for the weather. Indian Health Services has generously donated several coats to the district gathered from a recent coat drive. If your student is in need of a gently worn coat, please contact the school office for more information.

The Wind River InterTribal Council met in early November to discuss COVID-19 updates. As of November 14, 2022, WRITC Resolution No. 2022-111662 amends the reservation mask requirements. The FCSD #21 Board of Trustees met and approved to adhere to the amended health order. The wearing of masks is now optional within the school buildings. The district will continue to follow the COVID-19 health and safety protocols regarding social distancing, daily symptom monitor (including temperature checks), frequent handwashing, and optional mask if an individual chooses to wear it. The district will continue to require masks be worn on buses due to the limited space available. The school nurses will continue to track district COVID cases and contact tracing. All staff and student-athletes will test weekly. The CDC guidelines for quarantine and isolation will be implemented. For more information, please contact our school nurse.
