Whitney Wolverines Community News

Week of October 12th

Dear Whitney Families,

We have had a fantastic week seeing all our students! They have been doing a great job with following our safety protocols, being respectful and showing the Whitney Way. We are SO proud of our Wolverines! This is a very difficult time and it is so encouraging to see our youth show resilience and strength during this time. You play a HUGE role in what we are seeing here at school, we can't thank you enough!! Please enjoy this short video of what we've seen this week!

What happens when CDH announces that Ada County is in Category 3 (Red)?

Our District Office has sent out very detailed information to families regarding the response to the guidance from CDH when we enter Category 3 (Red). Please read this information for a thorough explanation.

School will continue with the current schedule for the entire 1st semester. We will NOT return to 5- day- a- week- in- person learning during 1st semester.

We understand that the situation may change rapidly and we will continue to consult with CDH and medical professionals to determine if all students need to return to virtual learning only or if other measures may be necessary to continue in-person learning. In addition, some classes, grade levels and/or schools may have to move to virtual learning depending on positive cases and exposures. Following our safety protocols will be paramount to keeping incidents of exposure to a minimum (i.e., wearing face coverings, frequent hand washing, disinfecting/sanitizing and physical distancing).

Thank you for helping us with dismissal! We realize it requires more patience. Please watch this video if you aren't sure what to do.

It is extremely important you let your child's teacher know if your afterschool plans change.
