New School Year - New Website
Message from Mr. Blackman
Superintendent of Chaffee R-2 School District:

As we begin this New Year and semester, we are pleased to announce that we have launched our newly redesigned Chaffee R-2 School District with our new website provider, SchoolMessenger. Our goal with this new website design is to provide families with an easier way to learn about our school and district events as well as keep up-to-date with classroom details and campus changes.
The new website has 3 separate, but integrated sites for our District, Elementary School, and Jr/Sr High School. It is interactive and gives better access to calendar events, school forms, and is mobile friendly. We will be constantly updating our content with helpful information, school announcements, and calendar events. We hope that our parents, students, and community find the new website design modern, easy to use, and that it will become a valuable source of information regarding school news, updates, events, policies, and procedures.
As with any new type of technology update, there could be a few glitches during the first few weeks, so please be patient.  We will also be launching a new Custom Mobile App in the near future, so please stay tuned for more information.
As stated above, the new Chaffee Schools website has 3 separate but integrated sites for our District, Elementary School, and Jr/Sr High School. You can visit our District site at and then get to the Elementary or the Jr/Sr High School site by using the “Select a School” dropdown menu at the top left of the website screen or by clicking on the “Our Schools” dropdown menu on the top menu bar. In addition, you can just visit any of the sites directly by using the following web addresses:
District website address:
Elementary website address:
Jr./Sr. High School website address:
