The recent face maks donation was random and Kathryn says she received a call about masks to see if they needed any from Anthony at Lowe's in Grand Junction, which they did. School District 51 wants to be as prepared as possible for the school year for staff and students and the face maks that were donated will be distributed as needed among students and staff.

Kathryn told us that face masks and school supplies are among the donations that they've received. We're helping District 51 collect school supplies for Stuff the Bus, and you can find out more information about Stuff the Bus here.

Kathryn says that School District 51 wants to do what they can to keep students and staff safe. District 51 is announcing the plan for the school year on July 21, 2020. D51 will be answering questions about classroom, recess, lunchtime and school bus protocol, and more.
