Parents and Students:

I want to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year at Sundance Elementary. We are excited for another school year with your children. We are growing fast and want to welcome the new families to our school community. I know that there are many concerns out there when it comes to school violence. Sundance Elementary staff will continue to make sure that we create the safest learning environment possible for your child. We will continue taking every precautionary measure working with local law enforcement to ensure your child’s safety. 

We welcome parents and community members into our school, but please remember that you must have successfully completed the volunteer packet through our school district office. Our school day starts at 8:10 AM each morning, with dismissal for all students at 3:45 PM. We ask that you please drop your child off at the playground entrance using the visitor parking lot. We have busses that need to utilize the staff parking lot throughout the morning and after school. We do offer breakfast each morning starting at 7:45 AM.

We strongly encourage student attendance, as it is a critical component to your child’s academic success. I encourage you to notify the office anytime your child is going to be absent. You can notify the office by either calling 307-283-1227, or by sending an email to the office staff. Please refer to our student handbook for the attendance policy for Crook County School District. 

The Sundance Elementary handbook is designed to help you become familiar with the policies and procedures of Crook County School District #1. Our goal at Sundance Elementary is to provide your child a productive and safe learning environment. I encourage you to have an open line of communication with your child’s teacher.

The staff at Sundance Elementary are dedicated individuals that enjoy having the opportunity to work with your child. We want to continue to make Sundance Elementary your school of choice. We appreciate your continued support and dedication to our school.
