Paul Pugh, a Junior at Burley High School, has been selected for the 2021 All Northwest Honor Orchestra.

Paul began practicing in June 2020, submitted his recording in November, and was notified of his selection to the orchedstra in January.
All Northwest was scheduled for February 2021 in Spokane, Washington. Due to Covid, the students will not get to perform as an orchestra. The students selected from Idaho, Washington, Wyoming, Montana, and Alaska will receive a plaque and a certificate.
Being one of 40 cello players selected across five states is a great honor for Paul, who wishes to thank his private teachers Mrs. Deana Christiansen Of Burley Junior High and Dr. Eleanor Cox of Idaho State University, Pocatello.

Suicide Prevention Resources
Call 911 for an immediate emergency
Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline
Contact the Hotline if you or someone you know is in crisis or emotional distress. The Hotline is available 24/7, TEXT support is available Monday through Friday from 3:00 PM to Midnight, but CHAT support is currently unavailable due to COVID-19.
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline

Student CONNECT Program
Connect is a resource to help address a broad range of personal difficulties that may be causing distress. This benefit is free to any Cassia student grades K-12.
Free Online Reading Materials
The closure of our school libraries has made it difficult for students to access enough books, specifically fiction. The District Librarian has created a blog to provide information on free online reading materials.

Changes to District Breakfast Program
Cassia School District will continue to provide breakfast and lunch for any and all students HOWEVER, FREE breakfast will NO LONGER BE OFFERED to ALL students (K-12) at Cassia Schools. The breakfast and lunch programs are provided through federal programs and the ability to offer free meals is based on socioeconomic factors of the community. Improved economic conditions have changed our calculation in the federal programs and eliminated our eligibility.
The district will continue to offer healthy meals to any and all students during the day, but will return to the former system of collecting applications for free and reduced meals and only provide free or reduced meals to those students who qualify as determined by the application process.
All families, regardless of economic status, are encouraged to complete the application.
Changes impact all free breakfasts and lunches at Cassia High School.
Please see the documents below or contact your school for more information.
