Dear Ennis Mustang Families and Community, We want to keep you informed on our plans for reopening school to in person instruction on August 26th. The details of how that will exactly look are adamantly being discussed and worked on. Please know that the decision to reopen schools is a local decision that will be approved by the school board. Currently, we are in Phase II of the Governor's Reopening of the Big Sky Plan and we are following guidance to open up our school in Phase II. Our committee will have a DRAFT plan for the trustees to consider next week. Tentatively, there is a special meeting on Tuesday, July 28th at 5pm to consider a plan for reopening. Please be checking the school website or call for meeting details. We are using guidance from the Governor's Office, The Montana Office of Public Instruction, the CDC, as well as working with local health officials for reopening. We understand the importance of opening our school up to students and doing our part to keep our students, staff, and community safe. We encourage you to get the Ennis Mustangs mobile APP on your devices to keep up with the happenings at the school. The APP is in your Google Play or Apple store. I cannot stress enough how thankful we are for the great community we live in. We are hoping to have a plan approved next week so families can start planning. Your patience and understanding does not go unnoticed.
