SCSD 1 to expand Free Meals Program to all students (posted 4/1/2020)
Jay Harnack, Superintendent, Sublette County School District #1
Due to the sudden impact of the COVID -19 virus, SCSD 1 has received a waiver to expand our current meal offerings of breakfast and lunch to all students of our school district.

This service will be available beginning April 8th. It is our hope to help minimize the impact on the families in our school district and ensure that all of our students continue to have meals each day.

Meals will be available for pick up from the Pinedale Elementary School and from Pinedale Middle School. We will be making our best effort to prepare the appropriate amount of meals so the district is asking families to complete an application online. The application has been sent directly to families and is posted on the district’s website and Facebook page.

Families may also fill out a paper application at Pinedale Middle School during our current meal distribution times of 7:45 am – 9:00 am and 5:15 pm – 6:15 pm.

All applications are confidential and will be protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Please be aware that the SCSD 1 foodservice program is experiencing some difficulty in obtaining all food items that we have ordered during any given week, so we ask for patience and understanding as we work to provide this service.

The meal pickup schedule allows for meals to be picked up the evening before or on the morning of each day of the week. Mondays will be a little different in that Monday meals will need to be picked up on Monday morning. All meals will need to be picked up at the designated school at the times specified. Breakfast and lunch meals will be picked up at the same time.

The schedule is below:
Monday Meals:
7:45 am – 9:00 am

Tuesday - Thursday Meals:
7:45 am – 9:00 am
5:15 pm – 6:15 pm

Friday Meals:
7:45 am – 9:00 am

This whole time during COVID-19 we have encouraged the public to stay home if they are feeling ill....

However, if you are sick and having medical concerns and really not feeling very well, please still call the clinics. Providers are still available at both clinics and can even see patients via telehealth. We don't want people staying home getting sicker and not seeking out medical treatments.

SCUF responds to local emergencies (posted 3/30/2020)
Sublette County Unified Fire
Thursday, March 26, 2020
Camper Trailer Fire:
Sublette County Unified Fire (SCUF) Battalions 1 and 4 responded to a camper trailer on fire at a residence on Highway 191 south of Pinedale. The batteries of the trailer were being charged by a solar panel and had caught on fire. There were two 5lb. propane bottles next to the batteries that had reached a temperature of 300 degrees as measured with a thermal imager by the time the first engine was on scene. Firefighters were able to pull hose and apply water within 45 seconds of arrival, extinguishing the fire and cooling the tanks before they had a chance to explode. The solar panel was disconnected and placed out of the sun so that it would stop producing electricity. It is important to remember that solar panels will continue to produce electricity any time they are receiving light. Due to the quick response, no fire made it into the inside of the camper.

On the same day, SCUF also responded to a single vehicle rollover near Bondurant, on highway 191. The vehicle was southbound on dry roads when it departed the right side of the road, struck a snowbank and rolled. SCUF units from Battalions 3 and 5 responded in addition to Sublette County EMS and Wyoming Highway Patrol. The only occupant, the driver, remained in the vehicle during the rollover by wearing their seatbelt and didn’t appear to have any injuries at the time of the incident. The driver also signed a patient refusal for additional medical service.

Self-Isolating Wyoming, in pictures (posted 3/30/2020)
The coronavirus pandemic has caused many towns, counties and states to issue "Shelter-in-Place" orders to try to minimize social interaction that can spread the virus. Wyoming is very rural, and our connection to others is by our roads. We thought it would be interesting to use all the many webcams around the state as a visual representation of how well people are obeying the shelter-in-place and self-isolating requests and orders. These photos were gathered from WYDOT road webcams between around 7PM to 7:30ish on Saturday evening, March 28th. Click on this link to see more pictures: Self-Isolating Wyoming, in pictures

Sublette COVID Response Group holds Special Video Update March 27 (posted 3/26/2020)
No cases of COVID-19 to date in Sublette County
Pinedale Online!
The Sublette County COVID-19 Response Group gave an update on the situation in Sublette County on Friday, March 27th. Attending were Shad Cooper and Dave Doorn as Sublette County Unified Command, Dr. Fitzsimmons-Sublette County Health Officer, Janna Lee-Sublette County Public Health Nurse Manager, Emily Ray-Sublette County Rural Health Care District PIO, and Travis Bingham-Sublette County Sheriff’s Office PIO. The meeting was broadcast on Facebook Live.

The recording of the update meeting can be found on the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page

Highlights:
- Shad Cooper said they have created a unified Incident Command Group to coordinate efforts to work together as a team on the COVID-19 pandemic in Sublette County. They have formed to guide the objectives of the Incident Management Team, with their highest priority being the safety and support of the community.
- Dave Doorn thanked everyone who has been involved. Their efforts have helped the Clinics get needed supplies, couriers, equipment and more so they aren’t duplicating efforts.
- Janna Lee said they still had no positive cases of corona virus in Sublette County. As of today, the Wyoming State Health Officer extended all three of the special health orders until April 17th, which continues the closures and social distancing requirements. They have tested 17 people so far, with no positives. They are following CDC guidelines for who gets tested.
- Emily Ray reminded people they have new flow of traffic at the two clinics. No one with symptoms of corona virus will be allowed into the clinics. Also, the hours of the clinics have changed slightly, opening at 8:30AM instead of 8AM. She stressed that anyone who wants to come to the clinics please call first.
- Dr, Fitzsimmons restressed the importance of social isolation and minimizing social interactions, restricting indoor gatherings, and hygiene and hand washing as important strategies to flatten the curve of COVID-19 cases in Sublette County. We have another two weeks to go through these restrictions.
- Sgt. Travis Bingham gave a school update. All schools are closed through April 17th per order of the Governor as of yesterday (March 26th). Both school districts have been working on plans for remote learning. These will be effective April 6th. Parents should receive notifications and instructions from their child’s school.
- Mindi Crabb is the new volunteer coordinator during this COVID-19 health emergency in Sublette County. Anyone who wants to help, or needs help, can call 307-209-4037 or email sublettecovidvolunteers@gmail.com.


Wyoming School closure extended through at least April 17 (posted 3/26/2020)
Sublette County School District #1
Dear SCSD 1 Families and Staff:
Governor Gordon has extended the closure of all Wyoming schools through at least April 17, 2020.

In response to guidance from the Wyoming Department of Education (WDE), Sublette County School District 1 (SCSD1) has released an Adapted Learning Plan that addresses how the district will provide remote learning opportunities to students should the current closure extend beyond April 3rd. This plan has been sent directly to our families.

It is also available on the district website at www.sub1.org. The plan can be accessed on the front page of the website in a tile entitled "SCSD 1 Adapted Learning Plan"

The Adapted Learning plan is designed to provide students with meaningful instruction that aligns with the mission and vision of the Sublette County School District 1 while schools are closed to students in response to the pandemic.

While this format can never truly replace in-person interactions with a classroom teacher, it is our intent to maximize the multitude of resources within our learning community to maintain educational continuity and to meet state guidelines until schools return to in-person instruction.

The health and welfare of our students and staff continue to remain our top priority. Please know that this plan is likely to evolve over time as we work through the process of implementing the plan and get more guidance from the Wyoming Department of Education and health officials. It’s meant to be adaptable.

We are currently in the process of identifying families who wish to receive instructional materials in a hard copy format. Once we have collected this information, we will be releasing information regarding how those materials will be delivered to families, including distribution points and route times. We intend to release that information next week and will communicate it through multiple channels.

While we know it is impossible to answer every question you might have, we hope that this plan will give our families a good understanding of what the educational delivery system will look like should our schools remain closed to students for an extended period of time. As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Jay Harnack, Superintendent
Sublette County School District 1

Backpacks needed for Community Bak Pak Program (posted 3/26/2020)
Program provides food for kids who need food for weekends
Editor’s note: Julie "JJ" Huntley, representing the Community Bak Pak Program, is asking for help. Below is information from their request:

Lately, many of the backpacks used to provide food for kids on the weekends have not been returned to be re-filled. Hence, we have a shortage of backpacks, moving forward.

The Community Bak Pak Program is continuing on, during this school closure, to support the kids who need food for the weekends. This augments the meals (SCSD#1) currently provides for kids Mon.-Fri. In addition to daily meals, school personnel are distributing the weekend backpacks to the kids/families who have been identified by the school counselors. The point of pick-up is the Pinedale Middle School. (7:30-9:30am & 5:00-6:30pm Mon-Fri)

A clean (trash can) receptacle has been placed by the Pinedale Community United Church of Christ door (church adjacent to the skate park) to receive donations of new or "gently used" backpacks so we can continue providing weekend food to kids who need it. We will launder used packs.

For more information, call JJ at 307-231-9069.

Cowboy Country Distilling making hand sanitizer (posted 3/25/2020)
Pinedale Online!
Wyoming business, Cowboy County Distilling, has a surprising new product: hand sanitizer.

The distillery, located a few miles south of Pinedale in southwest Wyoming, is well known locally for being our new hometown maker of craft distilled spirits. Being entrepreneurial, they have turned some of their talents and efforts into making a new product and contributing something much needed in our community right now.

Hand sanitizer has become nearly impossible to find in local stores right now due to the corona virus pandemic. Local stores say there is no more to be had from their distributors. Alcohol to make your own sanitizer is also gone from local store shelves and unavailable from online sources. Cowboy County Distilling has come to the rescue. The company is offering 750ml bottles for $16.00. They have a limit of 2 per customer.

They are located at 1 Cobblestone Drive, across from the Pinedale airport, approximately six miles south of Pinedale on US 191. They have suspended all tastings and tours for the time being. The hand sanitizer can be purchased in their tasting room. Of course this product is for external use only. Their extended hours are Monday through Friday from 10AM to 2PM and on Saturdays from 10AM to 4PM.

They can be reached by phone at 307-367-2331

Town of Pinedale
Town of Pinedale waives late fees for water and sewer services (posted 3/24/2020)
Usage bills must still be paid
Town of Pinedale
March 24, 2020 - The Pinedale Town Council voted unanimously on Monday, March 23, 2020 to implement steps to assist its utility customers during these tough times. Because individuals and businesses are unable to realize their typical revenues, the Town will waive late fees for all water and sewer services billed by the Town of Pinedale. The usage bills must still be paid. Only the late fee is being waived. The waiver is in effect during the March 1 through July 1 billing cycles. The Town highly encourages customers to make small, regular payments, rather than allowing a large bill to amass that then becomes unmanageable. In furtherance of this recommendation, Town staff are available to help you set up a payment plan for the months of March through July.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to call the Town Hall at 307-367-4136. You may also email to info@townofpinedale.us. In either case, please be patient, we are working with a smaller staff and many people need assistance.
