It is our pleasure to welcome you to Dixon Elementary School ~ home of the Bison! Our entire staff is committed to academic excellence, as well as the social enrichment and emotional support of our students. Our daily goal is to establish a strong personal and academic foundation rooted in the Bison Be's –




and Be SAFE

Our Vision is to provide a quality education for all students. Our goal is to provide the necessary academic, behavioral, and creative thinking skills that will allow all students to be successful through their school career and life.

We promote teaching that challenges students to reach beyond merely knowing the course material. We believe students must be able to think critically, analyze information, respond effectively, apply their learning in real life situations, view the world as global citizens and use varied technologies to create, communicate and collaborate.

As a true community school, we take pride in the many opportunities we offer our students. Please visit our website often to stay abreast of all that goes on at Dixon Elementary.

Thanks for visiting, and I look forward to seeing you at Dixon!

Go Bison!

Coronavirus Update

August 16, 2021
Dixon School will be hosting the Tribal Health Department Vaccination Van for a series of free clinics. Free COVID-19 vaccinations will be available for all community members who are 12 years and older (including students and district staff that come from out of area). They will be offering any CDC recommended and state required immunizations for Tribal Health beneficiaries. Minor children must have a parent or guardian in attendance to provide signed consent.The COVID-19 vaccination requires two shots, three weeks apart. We have scheduled two events to accommodate the process.The first event will be during our Back to School Open House on August 24th from 4:00 - 5:30 PM (Dinner limited to students, their families and district staff).The second event will be during a Dixon School Ice Cream Social on September 14th from 3:30 - 5:00 PM (Ice cream limited to students, their families, and community members requiring their second vaccination).More information regarding the COVID-19 vaccination:FDA COVID-19 Vaccine Information: https://bit.ly/2W0hSlhCDC COVID-19 Vaccine Information: https://bit.ly/3CUcyRiAmerican Academy of Pediatrics COVID-19 Recommendations for Children and Adolescents: https://bit.ly/3skSdQ9Clark Fork Valley Hospital COVID Situation Update: https://bit.ly/2Xnloqg Clark Fork Valley Hospital General Coronavirus Information: https://bit.ly/2VV9JOMDixon School's goal is to maintain the most open and unrestricted environment for all students as we protect the health and well-being of all members of the community.

Montana School District ARP ESSER PLAN
The US Department of Education required the Montana Office of Public Instruction to establish a process for district plans consistent with the ARP ESSER requirement for the use of ARP ESSER funds and to ensure plans are made available to the public prior to August 24, 2021.
The plan must include how districts will:
  1. Use funds to implement prevention and mitigation strategies;
  2. Use funds totaling not less than 20% to address lost instructional time;
  3. Spend its remaining 80% of ARP ESSER funds;
  4. Respond to needs of student populations disproportionally affected by the pandemic; and
  5. Meaningfully engage with and consult stakeholders in crafting their plans.

As with the Dixon School Safe Return to In-Person School and Continuity of Learning Plan, this plan provides another way for state and federal agencies to ensure responsible use of funding as we collaborate to meet district, goals of keeping student, staff, and community health and well-being a priority.
June 21, 2021
On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 was signed into Law. The ARP Act provides funding to allow state and local education agencies to take additional steps for continued safe in-person instruction and to address unfinished teaching and learning to mitigate challenge through and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
Section 2001(i)(1) of the ARP Act requires each district to develop and make publicly available on their website a plan for the Safe Return to School and Continuity of Services Plan. We are currently seeking public comment on the Dixon School Safe Return Plan as we continue to draft our next steps.
Please take some time to review our plan and provide feedback.
