In response to questions on the Covid health and safety protocols I am providing the following information on masks in school. There are not any official mandates from the State or Local Government as of today, only recommendations. Currently, we as a district, are able to determine the health protocols for our school district independent of any state or county mandate. In order to provide the least restrictive educational environment for our students, Wiley School District will not require masks to be worn at our school, during practices or on educational trips. However, any student or staff member that wishes to wear a mask will be welcome to do so without incident, and will be protected with their choice. We will also not be collecting data on Covid vaccines for students or staff, unless mandated by law. As of now, we are able to make this determination as a district, although this could change very soon. The State Government has issued guidance that they are recommending that all children and educators be required to wear a mask during school. This is a recommendation from the State and is not currently a mandate as of now. The State has sent guidance to the County Health Department to make rules and mandates to require masking. The County HealthDepartment has been given the authority, by law, to initiate and enforce whatever health protocols they deem to be necessary in the name of public safety. The Prowers County Department of Public Health and Environment has not issued any such mandates as of the writing of this letter. As the Superintendent of Wiley School District it is my duty to help provide the best educational environment possible for all of our students and staff. I am trying to protect the social emotional health and academic growth for everyone in our district. I will continue to keep the public informed should any mandate be initiated. You can find further details of our Reopening Plan on our website wileyschool.org. Thank you. Jeff Bollinger

For those athletes who are planning to play either volleyball or softball or both here is some important information. We encourage all athletes wishing to play both sports to do so. Both coaches will work together and with the athlete to come up with a plan to support both program and athlete needs. We have created schedules to avoid game conflicts but if one should arise, the athlete will go to the sport that they have designated as their primary sport. Softball will have non mandatory open field practices beginning August 2-5 from 8:00-10:00 AM. Official mandatory practices will begin on August 9, at 3:15 PM. Volleyball will have non mandatory open gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00-8:00 PM beginning on July 13. Official mandatory practices will begin on August 9, at 3:15. Dual sport athletes will meet with both coaches to discuss practice on August 9 at 2:45 in the commons. Remember no athlete will be allowed to practice on August 9th that does not have a current physical on file. Please submit a copy of your physical to the front office. Any out of district softball players planning to come play at Wiley should contact coach Bollinger by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you wish to play.
- FOR SALE - Large lunch tables similar to these. $300 each. Contact Bart or Mr. Bollinger at the school to arrange for view or pickup.
Hello Wiley School Community, I wanted to give you some updates on some things around our district. Some of you may have seen several postings for positions this spring and summer, and we are excited about the new staff we have brought on board. We have hired several secondary staff to help build our athletic and performance programs, as well as providing new academic course offerings. This staff has already been working with many students this summer to help build their skills, speed and strength. We have also been working on creating smaller class sizes in the early elementary. This upcoming year we will support Kindergarten with a teacher and a teacher assistant, while first and second grades will both have two teachers per grade level. This reduces our class sizes to less than 15 per class in those critical years. We have also had an enormous amount of interest in our Teacher In Training Program. This program will allow us to “grow our own” teachers for the future. These “Teachers in Training” will be working as paraprofessionals and classroom assistants while they complete their teaching degrees. A part of the program is a commitment from the trainee to teach in Wiley after they complete their degree programs. The gym project is underway. We had some delays in getting started but the foundation walls and slab are expected to be completed next week, and you should start to see the building going up a short time after that. Our hope is still that it is ready for use by the winter sports season. We will be getting some information out about our new staff members soon, but also look out for information about our back to school barbeque that will happen in August. We will be inviting the community to meet the new staff, have a great meal and tour the school. Remember, you can always contact me for any comments, questions or concerns by phone 829-4806 or by email email@example.com Jeff Bollinger Superintendent
