BEST IN THE NEST SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Best in the Nest is a long standing tradition that was revived last year. It is an awards ceremony that primarily celebrates academic excellence. The event focuses on our senior class and awards students nominated by each department, our top ten scholars, National Merit honorees, and several other awards. We also celebrate new inductees into the Capital High School Hall of Fame. We are seeking corporate sponsors to help us fund the venue (Stueckle Sky Center), programs, awards and refreshments. We want this to be a special event that will be memorable for our students and families. Please distribute this information to any potential partners, or consider partnering with us if you have a business that would like to be a sponsor. Because this is an event honoring academic achievement we are providing exceptional benefits to our sponsors that cannot be gained by sponsoring an athletic or performing arts entity alone. You can contact us by emailing our principal Derek Gardner at derek.gardner@boiseschools.org or calling our main office 208-854-4490. We would like to thank our Capital Family for your support.

CAPITAL SPIRIT GEAR CAN BE PURCHASED AT THE BUSINESS OFFICE

Parents and Students will no longer be able to drop off/pickup students at the front of the School, due to continued issues with buses not being able to gain access to the bus pickup/drop off zone. Please help keep the drop off area running smoothly by pulling all the way up to the student entrance double doors near the south end of the east student parking lot.

Thank you for all your help with this matter.

WINTER WEATHER PROCEDURES - KEEPING STUDENTS & STAFF SAFE

Education is important and every missed day of school represents lost learning opportunities. However, the Boise School District's primary concern is for the safety of all students, including students riding busses and walking or biking to school. If students cannot safely travel to school or if schools are not able to operate safely because of citywide dangerous weather conditions, school may be cancelled.

We will not cancel school on days with normal wintery conditions. Light snowfall, cold mornings or areas of ice are not sufficiently dangerous to force the closure of schools. With proper precautions including appropriate clothing, road deicing, and careful driving, students can travel to and from school safely.

The Boise School District covers over 450 square miles of Ada County. We recognize that conditions vary throughout the District, even from street to street, in some cases. Conditions may be extremely dangerous in one area, while perfectly safe everywhere else. If parents believe it is too dangerous for their children to travel to school they have the option to keep their children home. If school is cancelled, it will be cancelled for the entire District, including Boise Online School.

The most frequent dangerous weather conditions facing Boise schools are:

SNOW: Snow levels within the City of Boise are typically light or moderate. However, there is always the potential for a heavy snowfall to make traveling by vehicle or on foot dangerous. Historically, most snowfall only results in slow traffic and minor accidents throughout the City. Normal snowfalls would not result in school closures.

COLD: Frigid temperatures are more serious than snow when making school closure decisions. On bitterly cold days our concern is for students walking to school. Extremely cold weather also impairs our ability to get busses running, which causes delays in pickup routes, delays which are much more dangerous to riders because of the low temperatures.

ICE: Ice is our most dangerous winter weather condition. Freezing rain and/or refreezing of melted snow make our roads, streets and sidewalks extremely treacherous for pedestrians, and vehicles. Icy conditions may force us to close, even if it appears that no other dangerous conditions exist.

How is the decision made to close or not to close school? Representatives from transportation agencies, the weather bureau, the highway district, city and county law enforcement agencies, and school administrators, including the Superintendent, check the roads and monitor information throughout the night and early morning hours. We confer by telephone early in the morning to reach a decision.

If school will be closed, we will communicate in a number of ways to spread the word. In addition to notifying local radio and television news stations, we will send text & email messages to parents/guardians, send an emergency alert via the District's mobile app, post closure information at www.boiseschools.org, on each school's website, and on our Twitter, Facebook, Instagram accounts. Parents/guardians can sign-up to receive emergency text messages by texting "Y" or "YES" to the number 67587. Non-parents (e.g., other family members, staff, news media, etc.) can also receive emergency text alerts via the Boise School District's mobile app (available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store). For more information, please visit our Inclement Weather Procedures on our Emergency webpage.
