Students of Seeley Swan High School students will temporarily relocate to The Resort at Paws Up starting Tuesday, Sept. 5. 

The following information was distributed to parents directly and can be found on the school’s website:

Seeley Swan High School – Temporary School Space Fact Sheet

Due to the Rice Ridge Fire evacuations, the Seeley Swan High school site is closed. Given our priority for student and staff safety, classes will be held in a temporary location until further notice.

We are grateful for the generosity of The Resort at Paws Up for offering temporary school space for the length of our displacement. In order to respect their business and operations please do not contact Paws Up staff with school questions.

Direct all questions to this temporary school phone number: 406-274-0596

Please contact this temporary phone number for all questions related to the alternate site.

If you need to arrange for busing from your temporary housing location, please call Owen Conley directly at: (406) 253-1951

Parents should also call this temporary number to report any adjusted attendance information pertaining to their students.


8:15 a.m. classes start
3:15 p.m. students dismissed
Week of 9/4/17: Classes will be held on Tuesday 9/5/17 – Thursday 9/7/17


Lunch for students and staff will be served daily by the kitchen staff from The Resort at Paws Up.


ALL STUDENTS MUST RIDE THE BUS TO SCHOOL. Only seniors who must leave early to get to work will be granted permission to drive to school.

Students who are displaced and living in temporary locations or who need to leave school to drive directly to work, please contact Dr. Pecora for permission to drive to school.

She can be reached at the temporary school phone number.

Students will not be permitted to transport themselves to practice. We will notify parents by 2:30 p.m. each day if practice will occur.
