Welcome to Mountain Valley School District RE-1

Mountain Valley School will continue to support our commuity 2

As you may have already heard, Governor Polis has extended his Executive Order suspending in-person instruction for all Colorado schools until April 30, 2020. During his press conference today, the governor reiterated that in-person instruction is unlikely to resume this school year. Mountain Valley School will continue to provide remote learning opportunities as well as meal distribution for our students throughout the remainder of the school year unless otherwise directed by the Governor’s Office or the Saguache County Public Health Department. 

Mountain Valley School District is dedicated to serving our students, families, and community. If you need anything during this difficult time, please give us a call at 719-655-2578. We will help out in any way possible.

Take care of each other, stay safe, and healthy.

After spring break, Mountain Valley School students will continue to have access to free breakfast and lunch services with drive-thru pick-up meals available at MVS and the KV Clubhouse.

Beginning Tuesday, March 24th through at least Thursday, April 16th, Mountain Valley School Nutrition Services will be distributing meals to all children ages 0-18 at two drive-thru locations:

Mountain Valley School District, 403 Pitkin Avenue, Saguache, Colorado

KV Clubhouse, 26415 Woodard Avenue, Moffat, Colorado.

Meals will be distributed Monday through Thursday from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. Each meal will contain one breakfast and one lunch.

To pick up a meal, parents are asked to drive through the parking area at their chosen location. This will allow for efficient and safe distribution of meals. Mountain Valley School staff will be on hand to distribute the meals.

In the event of an extended closure beyond April 16th, plans for additional breakfast and lunch services will be communicated to parents.

The operation of this emergency feeding program is made possible through the Summer Food Service Program of the USDA.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact superintendent Travis Garoutte at or (719) 655-0267.


March 18, 2020 - The Governor signed an executive order suspending in-person learning in public and private schools across the state from March 23 to April 17.

Mountain Valley School Educator of the Year


Congratulations to Mrs.  Yvonne Morfitt for being selected by the staff at MVS as the 2019-2020 Educator of the Year. Yvonne brings energy, enthusiasm, and professionalism to our school community. Mrs. Morfitt works with students, staff, and families to build supportive relationships that encompass the whole child.  Yvonne wears many hats within the district and with each new assignment she puts forth her best efforts to improve and guide students to become successful. She strives to meet the needs of all members of our school community, and she puts in many extra hours of time outside of the normal school day to enhance her skills and support our school.  Mrs. Morfitt serves as the grant writer at MVS and has garnered over a million dollars in funds to support our full-time nurse, the Americorps volunteers, social and emotional learning programs, bullying prevention efforts, health and wellness, and community outreach! She is truly deserving of this honor, and we appreciate all the great things Yvonne does for MVS every day!  She will be honored at the 2020 BOCES Educator of the Year banquet at the end of April.
