Note from the Principal

Friday, September 18th

Dear Boones Ferry Families,

It looks like the much anticipated sky clearing will happen over the weekend. For this reason, we are ready to reschedule the Toolkit Pickup. The original date was scheduled during the "slow start" week. To ensure our teachers have time to get to Boones Ferry and participate in the event, synchronous learning for Cohort A may end at 11:00 on Monday, please follow the lead of your child's teacher. All students will have asynchronous activities for the remainder of the day. Thank you for understanding this.

Additionally, we have decided to move our Curriculum Night to October 1st. Curriculum Night is the opportunity for parents and caregivers to hear from teachers and myself regarding our goals, classroom processes and curriculum resources we will be using for this year. This will be pre-recorded and sent out to families to view as it fits your family's schedule. If you have any follow up Q & A, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher.

Our teachers are focusing heavily right now on navigating new strategies for teaching and learning on the Zoom platform for synchronous learning times. Near the bottom of this newsletter you will find some common norms that may help you frame this time on your end.

We hope to see all of you on Monday for the Distance Learning Toolkit Pick-Up from 1:30-3:00.

Take Care,

Dr. Jensen

Wave & Supply Pick-Up

It looks as though the weather and air quality is foretasted to be much improved over this weekend. We will be holding our Drive by Wave & Supply Pick Up THIS MONDAY from 1:30-3:00. Many staff members will be present to wave and see your families, however not all are able to adjust their own family support needs to make it at this late moment. There will be materials for ALL Boones Families. WLWV Online (Fuel Ed) students will have bags from PSS. Your supplies come straight from Fuel Ed and will be delivered soon. We would love to see as many of you as we can! If this time does not work for you, we will be holding onto your supplies for pick up at another time in the near future.

Library Check-Out

I bet you have been wondering about how our students can get our school library books. Well, this newsletter has your answer and more. When you have a moment, please give this a quick read. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to me.
