Parents please be aware


I wanted to let you know that there has been some talk among students regarding the "Momo Challenge" that is out on the internet. I felt I needed to address a few classes that I had heard were talking about this terrible and very scary suicide challenge targeted at children. I’m asking you to take precaution, monitor and talk with your children about this challenge if you feel this could be something they could be exploring.

Thank you,
Luke Shelton -Superintendent / Principal

Attention Federal Employees & Other Families of Elysian Community

The Montana Office of Public Instruction’s school nutrition division has asked public schools in Billings to inform the families of furloughed federal employees that they likely meet the monthly eligibility requirements for free and reduced cost lunches.

OPI is looking to encourage families enrolled in the district to complete an application on the district website & attached to this post. The application states that children in households receiving benefits from SNAP, Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families are eligible for free meals.

Other students eligible for free meals include:

  • Foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court.
  • Children who meet the definition of homeless, runaway or migrant.
  • Children in a household with an income within the monthly limits of the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines.

Elysian school currently charges $1.25 for breakfast and $2.50 for lunch.

For more information, you can contact Laurie Hickethier at 656-4101 ext. 3.
