Montna Schools Closed

COVID-19 Montana Schools Closure

March 15, 2020

Dear Panther Families, 

As of 4:57 pm, Governor Bullock mandated a Montana schools closure for a period of two weeks. The closure is set to begin Monday March 16, 2020 and last until Friday, March 27, 2020 with the potential to last longer. 


Pioneer staff will be working vigorously over the next week to get materials prepared so that students might engage in learning from home. Our goal is to have materials and platforms ready to begin instruction as early as Monday, March 23rd. School devices will be available for checkout if needed. If you do not currently have access to a device or internet please text the office at (406) 373-5357 so that we can make arrangements for your student(s).
