Camp Heart Songs

Join us for a free, day-long, in-person camp experience as we explore grief through rock wall climbing, art, music,

nature exploration, a giant rope swing, and so much more.

This year camp will be divided into two separate days

for different age groups. For both days all supplies, lunch, snacks, and dinner will be provided.

Time to schedule your child's vaccinations!

Students entering the 7th grade must have 1 dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) and 1 dose of MCV (meningococcal vaccine) prior to the start of the 2021/22 school year. Contact the school nurse if you have questions, 488-3480 x 5333 Thank you!

Project Discovery-Talent Search is currently looking for high achieving students to join our program!

Project Discovery is a Talent Search Project funded by the U.S. Department of Education and hosted by Western Carolina University. We primarily serve low-income, potential first-generation college students in grades 6-12. Our participant services are FREE and include connection to high-quality tutoring, financial literacy services, summer programs, college visits, career exploration, STEM programs, Adventure based learning, and more!


Swain County Schools partners with a federal program called Gear Up and we're excited that Gear Up is about to start serving middle school students! The program is designed to enhance and supplement educational opportunities available to students and support them in career exploration and/or college preparation. Gear Up is an awesome resource, but in order to be effective, our Coordinator needs your help! She is conducting a survey to learn how best to serve our students so please check out the video to learn more about the program and then complete the survey at this link. If you complete the survey you'll be entered into a drawing to receive a $25 Amazon gift card! Feel free to reach out to Gear Up Coordinator Taylor with any questions!

Indian Education Meeting

Siyo Parents,

Our regularly scheduled Parent Meeting has been rescheduled a couple of times now, so due to the heavy load of responsibility of many parents and school personnel with their students involved in sports (which are all occurring now instead of being spread out over the Fall months as normal), we have decided to cancel this meeting and resume our regular scheduled meeting on April 21, 2021.  We will notify everyone of whether we may be able to hold an in-person meeting or a virtual meeting as we get closer to this date.  Our final meeting of the year to review next year’s grant, will be an in-person meeting, probably close to the end of the school year, more details to come about this.

Plan B Students return to In Person Instruction 4 days/week on Feb 22

The new schedule will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for in person instruction in the classroom. Wednesday will continue to be a remote learning day. This change will not affect Elementary Plan C students (Virtual Learning Students) or High School, Middle School or Bright Adventures students.
