Hello - I haven't sent out an update in a while, so today sounded like a good day to do that. Below are updates from the school:
February 12, 2021
Hello everyone - This is just a quick update regarding the number of COVID cases in Wallowa County. As a county we have broken our 30 case barrier in two weeks. For our school this does not mean anything at this point. We will continue to move forward with in-person instruction. You may see some sort of shift with businesses in the community. We will continue to update everyone as we know more. At this point we do not have a case in our school. If we do, we will complete the proper communication.
Have a good snowy weeknd!

Hello Everyone - It has been quite some time since my last update. Below are all the things going on in the Joseph School District:
COVID cases are on the rise in Wallowa County. Hopefully they are on the decline now. I believe we had 12 cases last week in our county! This is a one week high for our county and really put us all on watch. There are a lot of rumors out in the county regarding case, but please know that we will be in immediate contact with everyone if we get a case in our school.
We continue to clean high traffic areas regularly. Bathrooms are disinfected several times a day as well. All staff are pitching in to make sure we are as safe as possible.
7th-12th grade parents/guardians - grades should be updated last week so please check your students progress in Parent Vue. Let us know if there are any issues.
Athletics are still up in the air on which sports, what they look like, and when they will be played. If you have any questions or concerns our Athletic Director has been doing a lot of work to try to make things happen and he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spring Break is just around the corner March 22nd - 25th.
The gym area is very close to being all the way done. The crew is just finishing up little odds and ins and we should be fully back soon. We are brainstorming ways that the general public can view the finished product. If you have ideas that follow COVID protocols please let me know.
FFA competed this past weekend and our students did very well. We had kids complete in public speaking, FFA Creed speaking, job interviews, and the parliamentary procedures. We had kids placed overall very, very well. Congrats to Chelcee Mansfield and our FFA kids. Great Job!!
We recently had several students show their artwork at the Josephy Center. Students had to submit their art and if they were chosen their piece would be part of the art show. Several of our students work were chosen. Congrats to Jennifer Hawkins-Connolly and her students!!
We feel very fortunate to be in school and we will continue to do our best to keep it that way. I know there are kids that may be in a slump as things are as good as they can be, but it is definitely not normal. If your child needs more support at school we have a counselor available. Center for Wellness also has resources available as well. Let us know how we can help.
In closing, thank you for your continued support of our students, staff, and community. We are all dealing with this pandemic in one way or another and know we are thinking about you all and we are here to support in any way we can.
