Students on the eastern end of Rio Blanco County will officially start school September 4, but students have already been learning in the classrooms at the recently repaired Meeker Elementary School. “We have a couple of weeks left to get ready but summer school started last week,” Meeker superintendent Susan Goettel said of the use at the new elementary school, which was closed all last year for repairs. Goettel said four new teachers have been hired and a new high school principal. More information on teachers Maureen Gantt, Danielle Feola, Nathan Dick, Bruce Crowhorst and the new high school principal will be published once they report to school Aug. 24.
Meeker Elementary School librarian Kay Bivens and MES Principal Jason Hightower overlook the books for sale at the school’s Buy One Get One Free Scholastic Book Fair on April 10-11.
MEEKER — Back in November, voters settled the issue of whether to pass a bond election to build a new elementary school. Now, the question is what to do with the old one.
