Virtual Learning Day - November 2, 2021

Tuesday, November 2, Election Day, Will Be A Virtual Learning Day

Many of our Boise School District schools will be used as polling locations on Election Day, November 2. Since there will be thousands of visitors in our school buildings on Tuesday, November 2, students will learn virtually from home to keep everyone safe during the ongoing pandemic. On Tuesday, November 2, teachers will be teaching through their Google Classrooms via Google Meets. Students will follow their daily schedule next Tuesday from home virtually since every teacher will be holding a Google Meet each period.

COVID-19 Updates

Reminder - Expectations If Your Student is Quarantining at Home

The Boise School District follows CDC school protocols when a student is exposed, tests positive, or has symptoms of COVID-19. The Exposure and Illness Decision Trees along with more COVID-19 information is available on our Boise School District Website.

If your student is quarantining at home, they are marked as “virtual learning”. Virtual learning means that students will be accessing each teacher’s Google Classroom to see what assignments they need to work on while at home if they are feeling well enough. Teachers will not be teaching via a Google Meet online while we are full-time in-person. If there is an assignment the student does not understand, they are encouraged to email their teacher for clarification. If the teacher can not explain things via email, they may set up a Google Meet to help the student with the assignment. If at any time you or your student is not understanding something, please reach out to their teacher.

Congratulations to the October Students of the Month
