PUBLIC NOTICE: Area around Rossiter School affected by Flood Mitigation Project

In an ongoing effort to improve the safety and stability of our schools,  the Helena Public Schools announce the following projects  at Rossiter Elementary School.

  1. Construction for the Lewis & Clark County’s Trap Club Flood Mitigation Project has officially begun.  Both parking lots—the main lot and the faculty lot—are currently closed.  These lots will be open the first day of school and buses will run as usual.  Any faculty and visitors visiting the school before the first day are encouraged to park in the Sierra Park parking lot and walk to the school.*
  2. The roofing project continues on the gym. Please continue to use extra caution when around the area.
  3. The east end of Sierra Road (by the school) is currently closed.  Traffic is recommended to find alternative routes.

We apologize for any convenience these projects cause, but all involved parties are dedicated to completing them prior to the first day of school and appreciate your patience.

Questions?  Please contact Kalli Kind at (406) 324-1720 or kkind@helenaschools.org.

New Library at Central School to be named after past Superintendent, Jack Copps

It took over a year in the making, a brand new school, and an official change in district policy, but the Central School library officially will be named the Jack Copps Library.

According to current Superintendent, Tyler Ream, “While it is impossible to fully acknowledge and represent the impact that Jack Copps has made on the Helena Public Schools and our Helena community, employee, community members and Trustees have expressed a desire to honor the service of Mr. Copps through the naming of a district facility.  After much consideration, the library at the new Central Elementary School became the facility of choice due to its symbolic nature. First, the library serves as the hub of learning within the school and represents the vital element of childhood literacy. Second, the views from the windows of the Central Library expand across Helena from the downtown, to Mount Helena and across the Helena Valley. From a symbolic sense, this view represents the breadth and impact of Jack Copps’s dedication, service and leadership.”

An official dedication ceremony will be held at Central School at 5:00pm on August 23, immediately following a ribbon cutting ceremony of the new school.
