A Civics Lesson for the First Day of School
For many students returning to school on Aug. 21, a civics lesson will be waiting for them. August 21 is also primary election day in Wyoming. Many Casper schools are used as polling places. This is a great opportunity to involve our youngest citizens in the voting process and expose them to the importance of exercising your rights as an American citizen.
Polls are open 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. We understand there will be extra traffic in and around schools due to election day and Back to School festivities. Please keep this in mind as you travel to your polling places or drop/pick-up your children from school. The safety of our children and families is our top priority. Slow down in the school zones, obey traffic signs, and yield to pedestrians.
The following schools are polling places in Natrona County:
Mountain View Elementary, Bar Nunn Elementary, Oregon Trail Elementary, Paradise Valley Elementary, Roosevelt High School, Evansville Elementary, Centennial Junior High, Verda James Elementary, Westwood Elementary, Cottonwood Elementary, Kelly Walsh High School, Sagewood Elementary, Crest Hill Elementary, Pineview Elementary, University Park Elementary, Willard Elementary, Grant Elementary, Dean Morgan Junior High, Special Education Services, Alcova Elementary, Poison Spider School, Willow Creek School, Red Creek School, and Powder River School.
