Hello FUTURE DINO and parent/guardian , Carbon High School is excited to invite 8th grade students to a CTE and Transition Day on Wednesday, March 4th, 2020. 8th grade students from Helper Middle School and Mont Harmon Middle School will be traveling to Carbon High to experience ‘life as a Freshman’. Busses will pick up students from their schools at the time of the school’s first lunch. The students will meet first in the auditorium at Carbon High for general information and introductions. At approximately 12:15 pm, students will go to the CHS Cafeteria to enjoy their lunch. (Cafeteria workers will provide a typical high school lunch. Students who generally pack a lunch are invited to bring it with them). During this time there will be some activities in the Cafeteria as well. At 1:00 pm students will begin their ‘rotations’. They will be guided through the halls of Carbon in 6 (six) different groups. The purpose is to facilitate a smooth transition for future Freshmen while highlighting several of our outstanding CTE programs, our faculty and the school. Students will be able to see the specific programs and CTE Pathways available at Carbon and mingle with faculty, staff and administration. Students will then catch their bus to return home from Carbon High School at 3:15. For walkers and students that are generally picked up, please make prior arrangements to be picked up at Carbon on Wednesday. We are looking forward to meeting all 8th grade students and providing them with information and the tools they will need to be comfortable and successful as they move to high school. Go (FUTURE) Dinos!!!

Message from Sheriff Wood- I want to personally wish everyone a happy Halloween! With that said I want to remind everybody that we want you to have fun but don’t let Halloween mischief turn criminal. Be respectful of people’s personal property and keep an eye out for the trick or treaters tonight in our travels. We will have extra patrols in the areas we believe will be most impacted by this event. Extra patrols will be conducted with two person teams riding UTV’s in order to assist with traffic/pedestrian control. We feel this is a great opportunity for our Deputies to interact with the public in a fun and positive way. They will have candy to give out to the kids, but would ask that the public only approach our UTV’s when they are safely parked on the curb. We want everyone to have fun, but want to remind everybody to be careful while driving through these busy neighborhoods tonight. I wanted to bring up a topic that has been on my mind a lot recently. The use of social media at times is a blessing and a curse. I would ask that before you make a post, to think about the outcomes of the post and the purpose of your message. All too often I see social media posts that are posted with good intentions, but become a negative message in the community. From a law enforcement standpoint it needs to be known that we cannot always post details of an investigation but will always make public safety a top priority. We will never take unnecessary risks with public safety and will assure you the public will be notified immediately upon a serious and substantiated threat to our community. This notification would come through all media outlets, social media and the phone systems in the event of an actual substantiated issue. The fact that a single unsubstantiated post on social media can spread through the community and cause panic is frustrating. All too often the facts get skewed in the rumor mill, but may be portrayed as actual and factual information which can causes panic in the community. Please be careful of what you post, contact your local law enforcement upon any suspicious activity, questions, or concerns. Trust that your local law enforcement agency is taking your concerns seriously and appropriate measures are in place. You are always welcome to contact me with any questions or concerns that may be related to an event or incident that has occurred in our community. I would like to remind you “if you see something say something”. Again, I would like to wish everyone a happy Halloween, have fun but be careful out there. I am proud to be part of this community and honored to be in the position of Sheriff. We truly live in a great place. Thanks Jeff Wood
