Threat Assessments

Due to a recent article in the Lander Journal alleging past threats of violence against the school not being addressed, I want to remind our parents, students, staff, and community that the district does indeed take all threats seriously. Administrators and other staff members have been trained in threat assessment protocols and spend considerable time investigating any and all threats, including the incident mentioned in the newspaper article. There are times when evidence is non-existent, contradictory, or limited regarding a threat. At all times, administrators must rely on facts and evidence when investigating these matters and not rumors and/or assumptions. There are times when information may be shared and others where privacy laws do not enable the sharing of information that may identify a student or students. FCSD#1 takes the safety and security of our students and staff seriously and will continue to do so.


Board Meeting Schedule: The FCSD#1 Board of Trustees will have two meetings in May (the 2 and 16), both will take place at 6:00 p.m. The May 2 meeting will focus on the preliminary budget and discussion of a drug-testing policy for activity participants.

Snow day makeup: The makeup day for our most recent snow day will be Tuesday, May 30 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The district will be running buses and serving breakfast and lunch. Additionally, we will continue to keep the Friday, May 26 schedule as originally planned. Students will be in school from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and staff will have the remainder of the day for grading, etc. If you have any questions regarding these days, please check with your school administrator or your supervisor.

Math and Science Standards Public Input

Public comment on the Proposed 2023 Wyoming Math and Science Performance Standards is being collected until May 11, 2023, at 11:59 p.m.

The Wyoming State Board of Education (SBE) resolved to reduce the standards load and enact an audit of the Math and Science Standards first. Input was also collected from school districts, and a Curriculum Directors’ Advisory Committee reviewed the work of the audit committee and the input from districts to make a final recommendation to the SBE. The SBE passed a motion to collect public and educator input on the proposed 2023 Wyoming Math and Science Standards at its February 24, 2023, meeting.
