    Dear Parents and Community,

    With the failure to reach a super-majority on Tuesday, the district will not have the bond funding to commence construction on the 4th elementary school. The bond project was put before voters because of the continued growth in the district, and the student population exceeding building capacity at two of the three elementary schools. The pupil population is projected to steadily increase so until a bond for construction is passed, we have to examine where we will be able to educate students at Middleton Heights Elementary and Mill Creek Elementary. It is too early to say exactly what the set up will be for 2018-19. We need to conduct kindergarten registration and process new students in 1st through 5th grades. That being said, options include: A) keeping things the way they are especially if enrollment is flat. Looking at the housing developments, that is doubtful. B) Price out portable classrooms and determine if that is in the best financial and educational interest for all stakeholders, C) Review the pros and cons of placing 5th graders at the Middle School in self-contained classrooms in a 5th grade only hallway with the usual supports, D) Determine how many students could be absorbed temporarily at Purple Sage and E) a combination of any of the above.

    As we work through the logistics of each option, we'll be sure to keep parents informed and solicit feedback.

    There will not be any decisions before Spring Break, so we can all take a collective deep breath and finish out next week and enjoy the upcoming break.

    All the best,

    Dr. M

  • From the Desk of Mr. Hopkins:

    Amazingly, Spring is almost upon us.  It has been a strange winter but I am glad that we did not see a repeat of last year’s snowpocalypse.  Our final trimester will fly right by so having your students here every day and on time is vital to their success, please let us know if there is anything that we can do to help out with this.

    I am pleased to see all of the academic progress that our students have made to date and I am very proud of everyone, staff and students, for putting in long hours and working so hard every day.  In addition to working hard academically, we have been working hard to maintain a positive and healthy environment.  Our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports) program has really taken off and everyone has invested in it.  Our focus has been on preventing behavioral issues and in recognizing positive choices by our students.  I am pleased to report that I am seeing a decrease in office referrals in several of the areas that we have focused on this year and I credit our PBIS efforts for this.

    Safety remains a high priority here at PSE and we are constantly reviewing and improving current procedures and looking to implement whatever is necessary to ensure we are as proactive as we can be.  I work very closely with district staff members and our resource officer from the Canyon County Sherriff’s Department whenever there is a security or safety concern.  Recently we have increased our recess duty coverage and have been revising recess procedures.  I have also asked that our staff be even more vigilant and to let me know of any concerns they have.  If there is an area of concern that you would like me to address, please contact me as soon as possible.  Additional safety precautions for the entire district can be found on our website. 

    I need to remind everyone that the only way to access our building is through the front door.  Once inside, please check in, sign in and receive a visitor’s badge or sticker.  When leaving the building, please check out at the office and exit through the front door.

    Lastly, a very generous parent has donated a large bear for our library to replace the bears that were stolen.  This is a real bright spot and it helps to remind me that our school can bring so much joy to so many.  I am very happy to be your principal and I hope that you are pleased with Purple Sage and your experience here.  Have a wonderful March!
