WDE NAMES JOHN CORBIN 2024 WYOMING TEACHER OF THE YEAR CHEYENNE John Corbin, a high school social studies teacher at Cody High School, has been named the 2024 Wyoming Teacher of the Year in a surprise assembly. Corbin, a Wyoming educator for 15 years, is a strong advocate for civics education. He believes that all students should have the opportunity to learn about the history and government of their country. “John Corbin is an outstanding educator who truly prioritizes civic engagement and preparing students to be good future American citizens,” said Megan Degenfelder, State Superintendent of Public Instruction. “John's work instills in students a patriotic appreciation for our system of government and a sense of obligation to participate, to sacrifice for the future of their community and democracy, something we need now more than ever.” As Wyoming Teacher of the Year, Corbin will represent the teaching profession in Wyoming and be a spokesperson for education. He will also attend state and national education events and conferences. In addition, he will be a liaison between the teaching community, the Wyoming Legislature, the Wyoming Department of Education, districts, and communities.
Park 6 Families, Please take a moment to watch this update from Superintendent Orndorff regarding events that occurred within the district this week. https://youtu.be/VpDUfRmmqVM
Park 6 Families, This morning at approximately 7:30 a.m. Cody High School administration received a message from the school resource officer indicating that there was a social media post circulating that could be directed at Cody High School, the author of the post mentioned CHS. This information prompted the district’s crisis management team to put Cody High School into a shelter-in-place and the district notified families of the situation. Cody PD responded to CHS and swept the building, following this sweep they verified there was no threat to students. Additional Park County law enforcement officers began investigating the origins of the social media post. They determined the post originated in Clovis, New Mexico several years ago. The post mentions a threat to CHS. A student from a neighboring school district saw this post and thought it was targeted at Cody High School and sent it to a CHS student who then reported it to law enforcement. At approximately 8:10 Cody PD informed the District’s crisis team that this was not a credible threat and that the normal operation of Cody High School could resume. We thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as the district and Cody PD worked together to resolve this situation. We are extremely proud of how our scholars responded to this situation.
Good Morning Park 6 Families, This morning a false report of a school shooting at Cody High School was called into the Park County Law Enforcement Center. Cody PD responded quickly and verified that there was no threat and that the students were safe. This unfortunate event seems part of a nationwide trend called "swatting". We are thankful for our local law enforcement acting quickly to verify the situation. Once again, no threat was found, and the students are safe.
