Message From Our Principal

Snowy Range Academy Community,

Our 2019-20 school year has come to an end. While it was not the end we had all hoped to experience, I believe our community responded admirably to this unique challenge. We recognize the situation was not ideal and every family had a different experience through our fourth quarter of the year. However, I am very proud of how our school community came together to find the best solution for our students. Thank you all for your efforts.

As we move toward August and the beginning of the 2020-21 school year, it is our hope to have children back in school. Throughout the summer, we will be working on the development of our re-opening plan and sharing the plan with our community. As we work to develop our plan, we may need to seek information from community members through surveys or other avenues of input. Please watch for email communications from SRA.

As the situation with the COVID-19 crisis changes rapidly, we do not have certainty as to how our reopening in the fall will look at this time. As we plan, we will prepare for multiple contingencies to ensure we have the best possible plan in place to promote student learning, however that may look. SRA staff will work with the board and ACSD 1 to ensure we can re-open schools in a safe manner for all.

Thank you,

John R. Cowper

A Message from Our Principal

Snowy Range Academy Community,

I would like to begin by expressing how thankful I am for the genuine expressions of support, care, and cooperation I have witnessed throughout our school and local community. I am so very proud of where I live and work. This is an unprecedented event in our lives, and I am very pleased with what we have accomplished as a school in such a short time. This would not be possible without SRA’s outstanding students, talented professional staff, and our incredibly supportive parents. Thank you, all!  

As directed by the Wyoming Department of Education, SRA submitted an adaptive learning plan which allowed us to continue to officially deliver instruction to students through a virtual platform or other methods as needed. SRA’s adaptive learning plan is available for review on our website. On April 6, SRA began implementing our adaptive learning plan for all grade levels. Although adjustments may be made to the plan as we proceed, this plan will be in effect throughout the school closure.

We understand the impact of this world-wide event is not evenly distributed. Some of us are impacted more than others. Because of this, I ask that we all continue to be patient, supportive, and flexible as we progress through this situation together. If you have a need, please let us know. We are still Snowy Range Academy, and we are here to support our community.

Thank you,

John R. Cowper
