The Principal's Corner
I hope you found teacher conferences beneficial. Besides seeing the progress of your child it is a time to come together as a team to support your child. If you were not able to attend conferences please contact your student's teacher to set up a time to meet.
On Oct. 31 we will have a school wide costume parade. Look for an email with the details and how you can participate.
Our pre-school started last week. What a wonderful addition to our Pierce Park family.
I am Miss Ekins, and I am the school counselor. As the school counselor, I help support all students' learning. Last week, I started lessons in the K through 2nd grade classrooms. This week, I am teaching in the 3rd grade through 6th grade classrooms. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or concerns or if your family needs assistance. I am at Pierce Park on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I am excited to be here at Pierce Park! I look forward to a great year!
October 31st - Halloween!

Not Feeling Well?
Follow Illness Procedure
Staying home when a person has symptoms of illness protects the school community by preventing the spread of illness and allows the person experiencing symptoms of illness the opportunity to rest and recover. If you're not feeling well, please follow the Boise School District Illness Procedure before entering any school or workplace.

SCHOOL BREAKFAST AND LUNCH FEES FOR 2023 2024
School meals were free for all students during the 2021 2022 school year. Congress has not extended these waivers for the 2023 2024 school year. Beginning in August, students will be charged for meals based upon their household benefit status.
If you think your household would qualify (eligibility guidelines) for free or reduced priced meals, you are encouraged to complete an online meal application. Applications will be available in early July 2023. Once determined, meal prices for 2023 2024 school year will be available on the District Food & Nutrition Services website.
