Mask Optional Letter Home 3.16.21

Dear Joliet Parents and Guardians, On the evening of March 15th, Joliet Public School Board voted to make masks optional effective March 16th, 2021. The decision came after lengthy deliberations and a great deal of public comment. We understand that parents may have differing opinions about this decision, and we will do our best here at Joliet School to adhere to your personal wishes. If you want your child to continue masking, please call the school and let us know so we can encourage your child to continue wearing a face covering. The District will continue: increased cleaning protocols promotion of handwashing and proper hygiene social distancing when possible opening classroom/office windows for ventilation weather permitting students moving in cohort groups expectations for on-campus meetings, gatherings, events, and visitors to adhere to MHSA directives to offer work flexibility for students and staff student arrival and departure routines the same food preparation and meal service All other emergency policies are still effective. At this time, the only change in policies and protocols is optional face coverings. Respectfully, Allison B. Evertz Joliet Superintendent

Kindergarten Roundup

Kindergarten 1 is open to all in-district students who will be 4 years of age by September 10, 2021. Parents may elect to enroll their 5 year old in Kindergarten 1 if they feel their child would benefit from an additional year of development before Kindergarten. The schedule for Kindergarten 1 will be determined prior to the 2021-2022 school year depending on enrollment numbers. Kindergarten is open to students who will be 5 years of age by September 10, 2021. Kindergarten runs Monday through Friday 8am to 3:30pm.

Joliet Community Scholarship Drive

Joliet High School is beginning the annual Joliet Community Scholarship drive which solicits businesses and individuals who are interested in contributing to the scholarship fund. Each year donors have renewed their pledges to the fund that enables Joliet High School students to further their education. As college and vocational training becomes more and more expensive, fewer students are able to afford the total costs. Community members and community businesses have been committed to the students in developing their potential as productive and successful individuals, by helping with the financial burdens of higher education through donations to the scholarship fund. Last year the scholarship fund raised enough money to assist many students to further their education. The selection of the applicants is based on their academic commitment and success, leadership contributions, along with school and community involvement. The list of donors continues to grow as do the plaques placed in the Joliet High School gym in appreciation of the generous gifts. Any questions can be directed to Brice Turk at Joliet Schools, 962-3541. If you wish to contribute, donations may be mailed to: Joliet Community Scholarship Fund, Joliet High School, P.O. Box 590, Joliet, MT 59041
