The Groundhog Gazette

October 2020

From The Desk Of Mrs. Uhlorn

Welcome to October! We made it through Phase 1 and are hopeful we get to move forward with Phase 2 starting on October 5th. If you are unsure of your children's schedule for the staggered start, please reach out to their teachers.

I want to thank all of the parents who showed up wearing their masks and practiced social distancing when dropping their children off. Our goal is to keep school doors open and everyone safe and healthy. In order to do that we need to follow the CDH guidelines and the Boise School District Policy. If you are on BSD grounds, you are required to wear a face covering and practice social distancing. If you do not have one upon arrival to the building we will provide one to you.

As we gear up for the first quarter to conclude we will be scheduling virtual parent teacher conferences and sending information home the closer to the date. I know these times are strange and very different than what we are used to, however, I am continuously impressed by our students and the way they adapt to their surroundings. Know we are here to support them in all aspects, emotionally, educationally, and socially.

Lastly, a friendly reminder due to the pandemic we will not be having class parties, special snacks or the traditional Halloween parade this year. I know this is a long standing tradition and we may conjure something else up to keep the spirit alive.

If you have concerns, do not hesitate to reach out either via email or a phone call. Thank you again for all of your support and being amazing role models for our children so we can keep our doors open to you!
