Teton County School Population Growing

school

Teachers have returned to their classrooms this week in Jackson Hole preparing for what promises to be another busy school year with more students than ever.  Teton County School District #1 Superintendent Pam Shea says while exactly how many students will be enrolled in this year’s classes is not yet known, the trend continues steadily upward.  Shea says the trend continues to focus in the early elementary age group rather than the secondary population; and with kindergarten enrollment from last spring, the district is planning to have classroom sections for a larger number of students. Shea says the district still strives for smaller class sizes, but that in turn puts more pressure on the buildings since that means more classrooms are needed.  To that end, she says the school facilities department is examining the potential of siting another school building for future enrollments.  In the meantime, Shea says the students will return to their schools one week from tomorrow at the same start times as last year for each school. Shea adds, “Every year, we do take a look at our bus routes, so those are continuously improved.” As a result, she says there may be some minor changes in some of the bus routes. Students preparing to come to school can check what school supplies are needed at the individual building sites on the school district website, while elementary students will learn what their individual teachers want them to have in their school supplies from lists posted on their school’s doors.

  • Towing with a half-ton - July 31, 2014
    I’ve been hauling horses with either a three-quarter-ton or a one-ton truck for about the past 10 years, and I’ve gotten kind of spoiled by the towing power of those old Ford diesels. Even with a heavy load cruising along behind me, I’d sometimes forget I was pulling a trailer. But when the F-350 started […]
