April 7, 2020 Parent Update During School Closure
Dear Mountain View School District Community,
Yesterday, April 6th, the Idaho Board of Public Education voted to extend their recommendation for “soft closure” of schools until the end of each district’s school year. The Mountain View School District Board of Trustees will be deciding whether or not to approve a soft closure of ALL schools in the district at their regular monthly meeting on April 20th. If the Board makes this decision it would mean ALL schools in the Mountain View School District would be closed to students through May 22, 2020. The exception to this closure is if local health officials determine it is safe for students to return to school.
Public education in the State of Idaho remains an essential service and will continue by means of distance education in a variety of forms during the soft closure. Educators and support staff in the District will continue to provide education for students grades K-12 during this period. All staff are checking in daily with their building principals and supervisors. Staff are working from home and from school to provide ongoing instruction to our students. Our teachers and support staff are continuing to work with parents and students to provide the best possible education for our students.
We will continue distributing meals (breakfast and lunch) to any child ages 1 through 18. The meals are being distributed at bus stops beginning at 10:00 each day, Monday through Friday. We may need to adjust times in the future and any adjustments to bus stop times will be posted on school websites. Meals are also being distributed Monday through Friday at: Clearwater Valley Elementary, Grangeville Elementary Middle School, and the Family Dollar parking lot in Grangeville from 11:00 AM until 12:00 P.M. Meals are also being provided in Elk City from 12:30-1:00 P.M.
We again thank you for your patience and understanding. As a community working together for our children, we will persevere through this challenge. Please continue to monitor your school’s website and Facebook pages for additional information and updates. If you have questions, please email your school’s principal.
Please welcome Todd Fiske to the Mountain View School District.
