SUIMA Closed March 16th

As we all know Colorado has seen a recent uptick in confirmed COVID 19 cases, the projections are that there will be a sharp increase in newly confirmed cases in the weeks to come. SUIMA has taken certain measures and the tribe has made the decision to close school on Monday, March 16, 2020 so that teachers and staff can create an education platform for the continued learning of the students in the possibility of a lengthy school closure. Staff will report to work on Monday, March 16, 2020 so that they can develop homework packets and online resources that will be used in the event of such closure.
