  • Machine Operator Apprenticeship Program Update

    On November 10, 2021, Manufacturing industry partners along with Cassia and Minidoka School districts agreed to a schedule change for the Machine Operator Apprenticeship program that has been held for the past four years at Mt Harrison High School. The decision was made to change the time of the class from weekday mornings at 6:30 am to Friday mornings. Classes will be held at High Desert Milk in Burley. Second year students will attend from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and first year students will attend from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. With the change in the schedule, we anticipate more participation from all the schools in the valley. With the change, we have extended the application deadline to November 30th. Any Junior or Senior interested in the program can complete the attached application and submit it to the Idaho Department of Labor in Burley. I am attaching copies of the application along with an information pamphlet for students interested in the program.

    The Machine Operator Apprenticeship program was designed to provide employment opportunities to students who may be interested in working in manufacturing and food processing. Juniors and Seniors are our target audience for the program. Students will be required to complete training courses on Fridays at High Desert Milk for two hours per week. Upon completion of the course, students will be interviewed by participating companies and offered work through the summer with wages ranging from $13.00 to $15.00 per hour. Upon completion of the full program, raises will be offered as well as advancement opportunities within the companies. For additional information, you can contact Chet Jeppesen directly at the Idaho Department of Labor at 208-678-5518 ext. 3109.

  • SchoolPulse Logo

     

    Cassia County School District is working to meet the needs of our children in a number of ways. These unprecedented times have caused us to look for additional tools that keep students connected to positive messages of hope and resilience. Strong emotional health helps all students reach their potential as caring, contributing and responsible friends, family members, coworkers and citizens. Our district seeks to support students and families in comprehensive ways.

    For students in grades 7-12, we have partnered with SchoolPulse to support encouragement through weekly inspirational messages that come to your child and you, if you opt in, through text messages. The messages provide skills for coping with daily challenges and promote productive skills for communication and relationships. This tool is intended to strengthen a student's built-in support system along with encouraging personal resilience.

    This program is optional and is only accessed if someone opts in. There are no passwords or logins and it is free. Phone numbers and responses are completely confidential and anonymous and will not be used or shared for any reason.

    Students, families, and teachers, are dealing with a broad range of personal difficulties that may be causing distress and some issues take more time and more specific help. The district continues to encourage students and families to reach out to our school counselors or utilize our Connect program (1-800-926-9619), when needed. SchoolPulse is a complement to other resources for students and families. The district encourages you to utilize your benefits through the district's EAP.

    If you have specific questions, please contact your school counselor.

    Students and parents can opt-in starting October 8. To subscribe, text DECLOHS to 78573 and your child (and you) will immediately gain access to positive content.
