—2— Greetings, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you on behalf of the Anaconda Public School District. Here in Anaconda, we pride ourselves in our community and the students we are preparing to become the leaders of tomorrow. The Anaconda School District has an enrollment of approximately 1100 students from PreK through twelfth grade with an average class size of twenty five students. Our students participate in MHSA sanctioned athletic events as well as a variety of clubs such as ACI and HOSA. Our focus in this district is about building relationships that will prepare our students for life beyond high school in hope that they will become productive members of both our community and this great state. With the onset of COVID19 last spring, we have been diligently working the entire summer on how we can best serve the students and families of our community. We have formed several committees comprised of school board members, administration, staff, and community members to take a deep look at how a “Normal” school year will look for 2020-21. Please if you have not already done so check out our school website for the latest on our school plans for wellness, social-emotional-behavioral, and academic planning. As are families all across our state, many parents and students want the option to learn in a remote setting as they either have extenuating circumstances or simply worry about the safety of others when we return to school. This is an issue the district has not taken lightly. If you or your child wishes to attend school virtually we simply ask that you fill out the Anaconda Remote Learning Waiver located under the News Announcements on the district website. We are going to continue working together for the betterment of all students. Although we may be experiencing a “New Normal,” our team of educators is dedicated to ensuring the success of every child. Copperheads are a team and it is as a team we will persevere and have an amazing school year. Yours in Education, Justin Barnes Anaconda Superintendent

—5— Fall Re-Opening Plan The district is working extensively to create a set of plans that meet the needs of their staff and students as best is possible. No plan will be without risk or flaw. It is important that parents and students understand this as they make the decision for what is best for them. Below is an outline of our preliminary plan for district re-opening. This plan is fluid and subject to change at any moment based upon the recommendations of our local health department, the CDC, and/or state mandates. To make each of these scenarios easy to remember the district has aligned with our state agency Montana Office of Public Instruction (OPI): Scenario 4 as per OPI Scenario 2 as per OPI accommodations for the days when their Minimal or moderate community Moderate community transmission (as students are not in school. This scenario transmission (as defined by the Montana defined by the Montana Department of was developed to avoid a complete school Department of Health & Welfare) and no Health & Welfare) and positive case(s) with closure in order to maintain regular positive cases within the district some risk of exposure in an individual contact between teachers and students to school and/or within the District the highest extent possible.

—7— When to Keep Your Kids Home Ever wonder when you should keep your student home? See the visual chart. Per district policy, students must stay home until they have been symptom-free of certain illnesses for a minimum of 24-hours (or COVID illness for at least 48-hours). That means, without treatment on board (such as Tylenol for a fever), your student has been without symptoms for at least 24-hours. The 24-hour symptom-free policy pertains to the following illnesses: Fever of 100.0oF or higher Diarrhea (not caused by antibiotics or diet), and Vomiting (not related to textures or a hyper- sensitive gag reflex). For communicable diseases such as Strep Throat, Impetigo, and Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis), your student must be taking a prescribed antibiotic for at least 24-hours (beginning from the time the first dose was swallowed or applied). Some diseases, such as COVID-19 (2019-nCoV), Chickenpox (Varicella) and Whooping Cough (Pertussis), require a longer duration of absence from school or antibiotic treatment before your student can return to school. Carefully follow the doctor’s directions for treatment and keep in touch with the school nurse as needed. Parents/Guardians still need to notify the school that a student is being kept home and why. Absences are not excused unless there is close communication between the parent/guardian, the school nurse or school secretary, and/or the physician providing care. If your student is absent for more than three (3) consecutive school days due to illness, a physician’s note releasing your student to return to school is advised. For further questions, contact the school nurse at 563-5269 Ext. 1509.
Working Through a Pandemic Adversity builds character, but it can also be very challenging; especially when considering a worldwide pandemic. Below are some helpful ways to minimize the stresses of social distancing, and the tension of developing a new normal. • Be sure to build a routine. Remember to stay consistent with your eating and sleeping patterns. Also stay active, and make time to exercise daily. • Be sure to not to overload yourself with information. It is OK to step away from your phone, live updates, and the media. • Practice social media self discipline. • Understand your fears and rationalize/ Prepare and plan reasonably. • Think outside of yourself/Look at the big picture. One can alleviate stress in their life if you have the ability to help others and volunteer service. • Never feel guilty for your thoughts and fears. Stay open minded and optimistic • Seek support wisely. Too often we get caught in an echo chamber. Build perspective through multiple outlets of information. • Together we can all make a difference by social distancing. HIGH-SPEED INTERNET Jordan Contracting COPPER VILLAGE MUSEUM & ART CENTER

—12— Immunizations There are five vaccines or types of immunizations required for school attendance in the State of Montana. Each vaccine has its own series of booster shots to acquire adequate immune protection. The below picture shows the immunizations required for school attendance and when they should be given to your student. The immunization status of all students are evaluated upon school registration and then annually during the fall of every school year. (This follows State law.) For children who are in elementary school, the due dates for DTaP #5, MMR #2, Varicella #2, and Polio #4 are immediately following the student’s 4th birthday. For entry into 7th grade, students must have received their first dose of Tdap (which can be given any time between age 7 years and entrance into 7th grade). For students who are allergic to vaccines, the Medical Exemption Form HES101A must be completed by the student’s healthcare provider and submitted to the school nurse upon school entry. For students whose guardians do not want them to have vaccinations, the Religious Exemption Form HES113 must be completed, notarized, and submitted to the school nurse annually for school entry.

COPPER ACADEMY The Copper Academy is an entity of the Anaconda High School in which students are allowed the opportunity to work at their own pace. Here at Anaconda Public Schools, we believe that not every student fits the prototypical school mold. Each student learns at their own pace and should not be compared to any other student. At the Copper Academy, our students are individuals who have applied and chosen to take ownership of their education. Some are working on recovering credits, some choose this route because they enjoy more academic freedom, and yet others have become part of the academy because they wish to graduate on an accelerated path. Whatever the reasons, these students are learning the skills necessary to make conscious decisions that will enable them to head into a career path of their choosing at a time when they are ready. The primary learning platform at the Copper Academy is the Edmentum online curriculum. Students work with teaching advisors to map out what they are doing on a daily and weekly basis and build a curriculum plan which will allow the students ownership over their graduation. The Copper Academy is built around the premise of Respect & Honesty. If you have a child you feel would benefit from a smaller more personalized environment please feel free to stop in and visit about the Copper Academy any time for more information. Space is limited and there is an application process followed up with an interview to ensure this learning environment is right for your child.
