Good Morning TFES parents and students! Good news! Three Forks Elementary School will be back to in person instruction tomorrow (5/4). We will continue to follow safety guidelines such as masks, social distancing and hand washing through the end of the school year. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. We are excited to have our kids back!
Good afternoon TFES parents. Our staff and administration wanted to update you of the current COVID situation within Three Forks Elementary School. Currently we have 4 elementary classes that are under quarantine based on exposures to positive cases. Out of the safety of staff, students, and community members we do want to take precautionary measures to avoid further exposures and quarantines. Moving forward this is the educational plan for TFES: -Thursday, April 29 If you are able to keep your child home we are encouraging it. Any child that is kept home on Thursday will be excused. If due to the short notice this is not possible, we will hold class for non-quarantined K-5 students on Thursday. -Friday, April 30 and Monday, May 3 School will NOT be in session on Friday, April 30 and Monday, May 3. This will allow time for a thorough deep clean and to see if further cases do arise. If an extended closure is warranted parents will be notified. Thank you for your flexibility and for understanding. It is the goal of the TFES teaching team to have a great finish to the school year. We hope that this little break will allow for just that! Steve Fanning
We just got the awards from the Montana Science Fair!!! Rhett Violett received a silver ribbon for his project on testing the effects of temperature on strength of electromagnetic force. (I didn't get a picture of Rhett's project) Eleanor Dennin and Dawson Petersen received a silver ribbon for their project which tested whether masks prevented the spread of bacteria out of a person's mouth when they spoke. Great Job to them!

Dear Parents of Three Forks High School Students: We would like to invite you to attend an informational evening about our Advanced Placement and Dual Credit Programs tonight at 5:30 PM in the High School Library. As students receive their registration materials in April, they will need to make some important decisions about the classes they will take next year. Most of the Advanced Placement classes have prerequisites that require even freshmen and sophomore students to be careful with their course selection. We have found that parents appreciate the opportunity to hear about the benefits of Advanced Placement and Dual Credit programs as well as to ask any questions they might have about long-range planning for their student’s success. Currently, Three Forks High School offers AP Literature, AP Calculus, AP Environmental Science, and AP Spanish. AP Literature and Spanish III and IV also can be taken as Dual Credit classes through Gallatin College. In addition, we have dual credit classes which include Professional Communication and College Algebra; some of these classes are particularly suited for students seeking a two-year degree at a community or technical college. While the exact classes we will offer next year may change due to demand and staffing, these classes, both Dual Credit and Advanced Placement, offer substantial savings to families in tuition costs. We would love to see you there! Mr. Heys and the AP and Dual Credit Teachers
Did you know that Montana Drive offers teens and young adults Advanced Driver Training? The one-day workshop includes two hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind-the-wheel maneuvers on a closed raceway track near the Lewistown Airport. Each workshop is limited to 12 drivers with 4 instructors, so every driver benefits from individual attention and has hours of hands-on practice behind the wheel of the skid car, school bus, pickup truck, or ambulance. Drivers learn to respond safely to typical driving risks, gaining confidence and skill.

Attention TFS Families: It was discussed and determined at last night's school board meeting that school will not be held next Monday and Tuesday. The reason for the cancellation is out of the safety of staff, students, and community members due to the rise and impact of COVID cases in our community. This long break will also allow for a deep clean of our building. So to clarify, there will be no school next week, November 23-27. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Good morning Three Forks Family! As we have said since the onset of COVID, things are changing rapidly, impacting decisions, plans, and practices. Evidence of this occurred yesterday as Governor Bullock made an announcement extending his statewide mandate to now include face coverings required for all K-12 students, with the exception of those who have health conditions. With this being said, Three Forks Schools will follow this mandate and require all students K-12 to wear masks in school. Please read the article below for more details. If you do have questions about this update please contact the school at 285-6830. https://helenair.com/news/state-and-regional/govt-and-politics/bullock-masks-to-be-mandatory-in-k-12-schools/article_677fce7f-121f-5a01-96bf-4792a1411c8f.html
Good morning Three Forks Schools family! To begin, thank you for the patience as we roll out our plan to start 2020-2021. The District appreciates your flexibility and understanding.

Thank you to those that have taken the time to submit this form. We understand that families are confronted with a difficult decision and sometimes difficult decisions do take time. If you have not completed the form, please do as soon as your family is able to make an educated decision. The sooner the information rolls in, the sooner the District can start building rosters and notifying parents of class placements, etc. The link to the form can be found below. If you need more information or have any questions please call the office @ 285-6830. Thank you again for your cooperation as we start the 2020-2021 school year. #WeAreWolves! https://forms.gle/h36fdWEpqA74ZCxf6

Congratulations to the following MS/HS students who were nominated for the 3rd Quarter's Student of the Quarter! HS: Anthony Deriana, Tayla Moeykens, Jayden Woodland, Macey Combs, Katie Kotter, Chris Fullerton, Sam Schade, Hannah Delaittre, Bailey Partain, Kalli Miller MS: Jace Wiseman, Sawyer Marx, Cherish Allen, Abbey Tallman, Trevor Davis, Claire Cutler, Alyssa Golding, Sarah Raffety, Lee Anna Gonsalves Winners: Macey Combs and Trevor Davis Teachers had this to say about Macey: Macey has been an unbelievable part of our school for many years, but I think she often gets overlooked for the things she routinely does. Whether it be the morning announcements everyday, her role as student body president, announcing at the assemblies or even helping with the instagram scavenger hunts for the “coin”, Macey plays a large role in the day to day activities at Three Forks. Through all of this, she does get some recognition, but often I hear students just whine and complain about student council not doing this or student council not doing that, well Macey, I say Thank You for all you do! You stepped up and took on this role and I think you do a fantastic job. Teachers had this to say about Trevor: Trevor is a very diligent and hardworking student who really strives to do well. I appreciate his positive attitude, coming into class every day ready to go and working steadily until the bell rings. Thank you, Trevor! *Student's who were nominated are welcome to come get there certificate from the main office and learn what nice things teachers are saying about you!

Gov. Steve Bullock orders two week closure of public K-12 schools
Three Forks Schools will be closed for two weeks as declared by the governor.
As of Monday, March 16, Three Forks School District will continue to operate on the regular school schedule. All school extracurricular activities (school-based activities that take place before or after school hours) will continue until advised otherwise. The District understands the concerns of the COVID-19 virus and the cases that are being confirmed in Montana. With this in mind the TF Board of Trustees will be meeting Monday morning at 7:30 a.m. to discuss the possibility of school closures and educational planning if in fact schools are closed. The District may also get notification from the Gallatin County Health Department or the Governor of forced closures. If and when this does occur, parents and staff will be notified. With school continuing tomorrow, Monday, March 16th, the District does want to take preventative precautions. We are urging families to make proactive decisions on sending students to school. If your child or a family member is sick, please keep your child at home and notify the office of your intentions. If your child has a complicated illness or immune deficiency that puts them at risk, we encourage you to keep them at home. We know that this situation is very fluid, with updates hourly. As the District gains any information that may impact staff or students of TFS, this will be shared with all stakeholders. Thank you

We were greeted this morning with a ceiling tile destroyed and another leak from the aging heating system in the elementary school. The piping from the boiler system is the original piping (1974), which is showing its age, causing leaks in each of the last 3 years. Did you know that approximately $16 million dollars from the upcoming bond will go towards fixing this issue?

Why do we NEED this building bond? We have 3 schools within our campus that all have different needs. The focus of this project from the beginning has revolved around three components; safety, space, and infrastructure. Each of these components were taken into consideration for each individual school (elem., MS, and HS). This post will focus on space. -The current TF campus was not built to accommodate the increasing student population of approximately 740 students (avg. rate of 6% each year). This results in overcrowded classrooms throughout the K-12 District, negatively impacting the educational experience. -The existing blueprint for the HS is not designed for the current student population, resulting in overcrowded and unsafe hallways during peak traffic times. -The District campus contains three different schools (elem, MS, HS) that are forced to share spaces, resulting in course offerings being cut and less educational opportunities for K-12 students. -To temporarily address the lack of space, portable classrooms will be used. The result is an inadequate space/environment for teaching and learning. To learn more please check out the District website http://threeforksmt.apptegy.us/o/three-forks-schools. If you have questions you can contact the school office at 285-6830, or by emailing Superintendent Jeff Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org
Student of the quarter nominations: Hadley Fallang, Mikayla Lear, Zaida Bertrand, Cahal McDonald, Kate’s Flaglet, Katie Kotter, Peyton Page, Jayden Woodland Winners: Mikayla Lear & Katie Kotter Perfect Attendance: Dryden Frisinger, Cherish Allen, Tommi Kirwan, Lance Demaray, Ethan Eyman, Abbey Tallman, Cass Violett, Rhett Violett, Wyatt Bodenheimer, Kris Zeiger, Cassie Whitcome, Alexandria Pierce, Hannah Rumelhart
Just a reminder that there will be a Public Facilities Committee Meeting this afternoon on January 29th at 4:30 p.m. in the High School Library. All community members are welcome to attend.
The Speech & Drama team competed at the divisional tournament on Saturday, placing as champion in Speech with a score of 131-129, remaining undefeated in Class B Speech for the season going into the state tournament, by defeating the team who holds a 35 state championship streak. The team qualified 36 students for the state tournament, which is the most that Three Forks has qualified in the past 10 years. Kalli Miller & Ally Kamps won individual championships. Finn Hanson, Kevin Richards, Lexi Welch, and Hannah Rumelhart placed as runners-up. Also placing in the top four were Dean Buchholz, Aden Lehr, Hannah Wilson, Grace Donnelly, Bailey Partain, Dru Bolender, Lilly Lindquist, Michael Boyd, and Ethan Heagar.
You’re invited! If you’ve been wondering why we are looking to renovate and improve our schools, we invite you to come to the next Public Facilities Committee Meeting. This meeting will take place on January 29 at 4:30 p.m. in the High School Library. Call us at 285-6830 if you can’t attend and would like more information about the potential bond.
Three Forks School District has put together a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) directed towards the upcoming spring bond election. We will share the answers to these questions in the weeks leading up to the May 5th election date. If clarification is needed for any of these postings, please feel free to reach out to the District Office @ 285-6830. *Why does the Three Forks School District NEED this building bond? We have 3 schools within our campus that all have different needs. The focus of this project from the beginning has revolved around three components; safety, space, and infrastructure. Each of these components were taken into consideration for each individual school (elem., MS, and HS). Below is a listing of safety items that would be addressed through the passing of the spring bond. -The electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems are outdated and failing throughout many portions of the campus. -Fire suppression systems do NOT exist throughout the entire campus, thus creating a major safety concern that needs to be addressed. -Three Forks High School was built in 1952 and is currently obsolete, requiring desperate improvements. -To improve security and keep our students and staff safe, campus entrances would be reconfigured so that all traffic will funnel through the controlled offices during the school day. -The school bus loading/unloading zone will be relocated to a single (bus-only) lane to the north of campus. This will be a controlled, safe area for students to board/un-board buses. -The parent drop off area for elementary students will be relocated to the NE corner of campus, allowing for a more controlled area, while also reducing the congestion on East Neal. This would also allow for increased safety for students to walk to the playground or cafeteria prior to the start of school. -The School Board of Trustees has voted to purchase/lease portable classrooms that will be located outside of the main buildings. With these classrooms being outside of the main campus buildings, increased safety concerns do arise.
Amazing Community We just received an anonymous donation of $260 for our After School Program! We are so grateful for this!
