When Should I Stay Home?
The district leadership has created a graphic to help parents determine when they should consider keeping their children home and when they should consider having them return to school. Both English and Spanish versions of the charts are available for downloading below.
Statement from Dr. Shank
There are many questions regarding the start of school. Dr. Shank recently stated that "the priority is to get students back to school". A district reopening committee is meeting July 14 to discuss specifics regarding school operations. Once decisions are made, we will communicate with students and families should there be special considerations or accommodations for returning.
School priorities are consistent from year to year; support high levels of learning and protect students and staff.

Free Online Reading Materials
The closure of our school libraries has made it difficult for students to access enough books, specifically fiction. The District Librarian has created a blog to provide information on free online reading materials.

One of the pieces of the new Idaho school accountability system is a parent survey. This survey asks for your opinion on various topics to help measure how our schools are doing to meet their needs.
Access the survey HERE. Then, choose your child's school from the drop-down menu.
The survey should take between five and ten minutes to complete and your answers are anonymous. You can submit your survey until March 31, 2020.
