9-10-2020 Parent Update
Dear Parent or Guardian,
The Mountain View School District was notified that an individual associated with the District had a confirmed, positive test for Covid-19. According to the North Central Public Health Department, the District’s staff and students may have been in contact with the individual during the period of possible exposure. The individual had contact with others in our school district at Grangeville High School, September 2nd – 4th, prior to the individual’s diagnosis. Since the morning of September 8th (and this individual will continue to self-quarantine until symptoms are gone), the individual has not been at the school. Our schools are looking to determine close contact situations of 6’ or less and for longer than 15 minutes with students and staff and ask that all continue with self mitigation and to follow Health Department guidelines.
At this time Grangeville High School is still operating and no additional restrictions are in place. We are open to all staff and children not under quarantine restrictions. You may be contacted by school personnel to notify you that close proximity could have existed. Please note that we will strictly adhere to privacy laws during a health pandemic outbreak and will not disclose identifiable information of those that have been affected. We recommend that any person who feels sick should seek out their medical provider for specific instructions.
Our schools continue to implement mitigation factors, recommending mask wearing, hand washing, social distancing, partitions, extra cleaning measures and various other measures. School officials will continue to monitor the situation and will provide further information if and
when it becomes available.

Dear Mountain View School District Community,
The Mountain View School District (MVSD) recognizes that this is a difficult time for parents, guardians, school staff, school administrators, Trustees, and most especially our children! MVSD further recognizes that families must make decisions that they feel are in the best interest of their children. MVSD recommends that all patrons approach school reopening with respect for the choices of others and an understanding that things are changing quickly and it may be a long time until things are “normal” again.
The MVSD Board of Trustees has approved the plan to begin school under “GREEN” conditions as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and modified to fit MVSD #244. MVSD board and administrators will continue to monitor and review this outline as necessary.
GREEN: New Normal Operations – Category 1 – No Community Transmission – MVSD schools will reopen with all students attending school full time (5 days/week normal schedule) implementing reasonable procedures in accordance with health guidance. One fully online option as well as a blended learning option will also be available. Staff will work regularly scheduled hours.
