The school year is about to start Wednesday, Aug 25, 2021. It is estimated that 2,064 enrolled students will be attending the Park County School District No 6 this year, which is down from previous past year enrollments, largely due to the uptick in Home Schooling due to the COVID-19 issues.
The new interim superintendent, Tim Foley who is no stranger to being in the school system seems to have a direct handle on things as he has had many years preparing for this new interim role he has assumed.
School Year Begins August 25th, In Cody WYoming
Foley stated during a school board meeting that the pre enrollment numbers are increase ever so slightly
Foley has stressed to the public to use extreme caution when driving as kids will be crossing the street on their way to school. Sam Hummel, the transportation director, indicated that the buses have cameras on them so that they will be able to better protect the valued human cargo being transported from homes to school and then from school back to the homes of the kids.
A major change which was the only common sense choice to make, is that no mask will be required to ride the school bus this year regardless of the liberal mask mandate spin some would like to promote. Masks are just unhealthy for young kids to wear 5 hours a day.
