  • E-Day, Wednesday April 25, 2018 - All Afternoon and Evening Activities Will Continue as Planned

    • Today at approximately 7:00 we had a report of a strong smell on the north side of the academic wing. Students and staff were moved to the Commons and the Gym as a precaution, while Fire and district personnel were called.
    • Firefighters confirmed an odor this morning in the academic wing at FHS, which had been isolated to exhaust being pulled into the building from the ongoing construction on the new academic wing. There is a still a lingering odor from heaters used in the new construction areas. We are meeting with construction personnel to determine why our mitigation plans from last week were not continued as planned. Air handlers are on and the academic wing is being purged to remove any lingering odors so that we will be ready to resume classes tomorrow.
    • Falcon High School has called an E-Day for April 25, 2018. Please have your student log onto Schoology to check for their E-Day assignment. Assignments will be up by 10am.
    • All after school and evening activities WILL continue as planned. We WILL have school on Thursday, April 26,2018. Thank you all for patience as we work through these issues.

  • Gazette: A bird, a plane? No, a rocket: Eastern Colorado school kids learn STEM from JROTC cadets

    Thick autumn clouds spitting rain were of no interest to 145 elementary students in Miami-Yoder School District JT-60 Wednesday. Their attention was riveted on tiny specks that hovered 200 feet above before cascading to the ground. "It's a good white background to see the rockets - we won't lose them in the glare of the sun," said Principal Sheila Hartley, eyes cast upward. With the help of 13 students from the Aero Club of the Air Force Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps at Falcon High School, 32 youngsters in Miami-Yoder's Rocket Club each pushed a button and launched the Estes model rockets they had built over the past month.

  • FHS Wellness Success Story

    Sometimes it's the little things that count. We are showing students how to choose the healthier choice when it comes to snack bars. No need for chocolate covered bars to fuel your body, pick a nut or fruit based bar instead. We are also watching students gain strength in their core with new balance chairs. Keep an eye out for pictures coming soon of new learning tools that encourage movement in the classroom and the roll out of the test kit of heart monitors for our PE classes. FHS Wellness Team

  • Updated Schedule for April 27th

    We thank our colleagues and stakeholders who have continued to engage about the teacher action day planned for this Friday at the state capitol in Denver. The number of planned absences has grown past the point where District 49 can ensure safe operations and a high-quality learning experience at all schools and sites. Accordingly, District 49 is converting Friday, April 27 from a student contact day to a professional work day. That means students will not attend school this Friday, April 27.
