Serving on our School Community Council is a wonderful way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school. The school receives an annual dividend from the school trust lands. Our council decides how these funds will be used. Last year our school received $70,245.00 from the School LAND Trust Program. The council reviews and prepares other academic plans for our students each year. All plans are reviewed for final approval by our school board. Councils also act in an advisory capacity to school and school district administrations.
If you are interested in being part of the School Community Council for this year, please email the School at email@example.com or stop by the office.
More information regarding the work of the Council and the current plan can be found by visiting the School LAND Trust Website: http://www.schoollandtrust.org/
Elections for the Community Council take place each year in September. This is one of the many ways that we encourage our school community to become involved in the education process.

1 – Covid concerns and protocols
School is continuing to work on social distancing.
Health Department is helping with contact tracing for Covid exposures which helps the district and schools.
2- Virtual Learning in the District
If there is a need of a shutdown (the District has no current plans of a shutdown):
Horizon is preparing and working on Schoology with students, so they will be confident in accessing their assignments..
1 -Is there actual learning that is going to happen and not just assignments?
Last spring, some teachers did Google Meets with kids for 30 minutes and then had assignments for them. Horizon wants to have students learning virtually with teacher Google Meets and videos and not just students doing computer assignments.
There has been more interactions with students with the current virtual learning program that is in place. If a shutdown does happen, our teachers would get training from the current virtual learning teachers.
Currently district wide, there are about 500 students participating in the virtual learning program. Horizon has 17 students.
2- How do we hold students accountable to log onto Google Meets?
We will be getting ideas from the virtual learning teachers. If you have any ideas, please share, so we can have a plan.
3- Dual immersion is challenging, because we do not have current dual immersion teachers for virtual learning.
It was asked “What about Dual-Lingo? Is it a good way to teach or useful?”
The 4th grade dual immersion teacher responded, “Seems be an overall good program, but not sure if it is as useful as others.” She also responded that Mandarin Matrix is a better option. Teachers would need to assign students books and assignments, but they would continue to have access to it. It is available through the summer– teachers just need to make assignments.
2 – Safe Technology and Digital Citizenship
The question was asked if parents could have more information on what students are able to access per grade? Principal Haslem said she would get that information for us.
