I am proud to be a Meeker Cowboy!

For the past two years, Meeker Elementary School has engaged in learning opportunities through a partnership with Wisdom Ways Academy in Ghana, Africa. This partnership has been facilitated by OneSeed, which is a nonprofit organization run by a Meeker High School graduate. OneSeed has also offered curriculum materials for one of the elective courses at Barone Middle School during the 22-23 school year. Please click on the following link to see a copy of OneSeed's annual report that includes information about these outstanding learning opportunities for Meeker School District students:
Meeker Elementary School class lists have been removed from our Facebook page to ensure student confidentiality. Class lists will not change, but will be communicated individually with parents within the next few days. Thank you for your understanding!

- Fire Safety (Meeker Fire & Rescue)
- Bicycle Safety (Meeker PD)
- Electricity Safety (WREA)
- Outdoor Safety (Yampatika)

Meeker Elementary School Parents,
We will be holding our annual Safety Day for MES students on Tuesday, May 23. In order to conduct Safety Day, we need to utilize the upper parking lot and loop. The upper parking lot will be closed starting at 7:30 a.m. on May 23, and the upper loop will be closed once school has started except for preschool pick-up and drop-off which will operate as normal.
Please click on the attached image for a schematic of the stations we have planned as well as the safety topic and the organization who is presenting. We are grateful for our community partners who will be presenting safety topics to kindergarten through 5th grade students!
Meeker Elementary School Families, on Tuesday May 8 at 9:30 AM, we conducted a DRILL for the "Lockdown" directive outlined in our MSD Emergency Operations plan. In a "Lockdown" situation, there is a threat or hazard inside the school building. During a "Lockdown," classrooms are locked, lights are turned off, and staff/students get out of sight. Students and staff did a great job practicing a "Lockdown" in today's DRILL. While we sincerely hope we never have to utilize the "Lockdown" directive in the MSD Emergency Operations plan, we also know that it is essential for us to practice this drill to help ensure the safety of our students in an emergency situation. Please feel free to contact superintendent/interim elementary principal Chris Selle at email@example.com
or 970-878-9050 x102 if you have any questions or concerns.
