Blackfoot School District #55

Blackfoot School District #55

Update – March 19, 2020

Parents & Patrons,

As we have made preparations for our response to the COVID-19 situation in our community and our state, I want to convey our priorities as we progress through this situation:

#1 – Ensure the students who need meals get them
#2 – Ensure our families have access to academic support materials
#3 – Ensure we are doing our part to improve, not worsen, the situation in our community

With these established priorities, we need to make some clarifying statements and give some updates.

Bronco Bus Bites

We will begin delivering meals this Monday, March 23rd. Sack lunches will be available via either bus routes or “grab n’ go” at most school sites. Which bus routes will be used? We will use afternoon elementary “take home” bus routes for our delivery. This was the easiest and most efficient method to use for this process. A complete list of stops can be found at:

https://www.bfsdtransportation.org/bus-stop-index

The following schools will serve as “Grab n’ Go” sites as well: Fort Hall Elementary, Donald D. Stalker Elementary, I.T. Stoddard Elementary, Ridge Crest Elementary, Groveland Elementary, Wapello Elementary, Blackfoot Heritage Sixth Grade, Mountain View Middle School, and Independence High School. The site of Blackfoot High School will be serviced using I.T. Stoddard. Once we do our first run of the meal routes, we will be better informed regarding potential stop times. Please be patient with us as we work through this. We are anticipating the need to work out some kinks the first day or two of this process.

Academic Support Materials

We originally planned on distributing academic support materials for K-6th students on Monday during the first Bronco Bus Bites run. After careful consideration, we think that might be too much for the first run. Therefore, we are preparing to distribute K-6th support material on Tuesday, March 24th. This will be done on the Bronco Bus Bites routes, as well as the school “Grab n’ Go” locations. Secondary students: we anticipate having material prepared by Monday, March 30th. We believe this will be a mixed approach with options for technological access and nontechnological access. Special Education students (including preschool students): will receive individualized support materials that will be created to address their needs. We will have these materials available at each school site during meal delivery times when the general education materials become available. If you are unable to retrieve the needed materials at this time, please contact our Student Support Services Center at 208-785-8835 to make arrangements.

Please understand we are doing our best to support our students and their families during this time. Starting Monday, March 30th all schools will have open office hours from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Please feel free to contact the schools for assistance. For the time being, feel free to contact our District Office at 208-785-8800 if you need any further clarification.

Sincerely,

Brian Kress

Okay folks.
We know things are a little intense right now. People are scared. We'd be lying if we told you we weren't a little nervous too. But we're here, and we will be here with all the other first responders.
We can all do this as a community.
Be patient with each other.
Wash your hands.
Check on your neighbors (maybe talk loudly from your side of the street), and help when you can.
Support your local businesses and schools. They are doing the best they can, just like you are.
Wash your hands.
We're going to get through this together.
We are stronger together.

Blackfoot School District #55

BLACKFOOT DISTRICT #55 SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED AS OF TUESDAY, MARCH 17 AND WILL REOPEN MONDAY, APRIL 6, 2020.*

*the date of reopening could change based on the School Board's decision to revisit the public health concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Update – March 16, 2020

Parents & Patrons,

I need to inform you that the Blackfoot School District Board of Trustees held an emergency meeting today at 4:00 pm. The first order of business was for the board to approve my recommendation to temporarily suspend student attendance requirements for our students. This was approved unanimously by the board. We then spent the next thirty minutes discussing the current COVID-19 situation in our country, our state, and our community. The discussion was wide ranging and dealt with concerns with closing schools for an extended period of time. The board also discussed the updated recommendations made by President Trump regarding the current national situation. Ultimately, the board decided to begin spring break immediately. We will hold our regularly scheduled spring break, March 23rd – 27th . The board also approved an extension for the week after, with the consideration of school reconvening on April 6th . The board has rescheduled its regular March board meeting for April 2, 2020. At that time, the school board will reassess the school closure situation and make a decision regarding the reconvening of school on April 6th. In summary, school has been cancelled March 17th – April 3rd.

We apologize for the disruption this extended school closure is likely to cause in our community. It truly was a very difficult decision. Our teachers were prepared to send materials home today for our students; however, we were made aware of a legal requirement we had not fulfilled. Unfortunately, we will not be prepared to address this requirement until after our scheduled spring break. Beginning March 30th, I feel we will be ready to assist our families in the education of their children. We will work to provide both a technological solution for those who have that capability, as well as support for those who may not have that option. I will do my best to keep our community informed about our plans.

Regarding school meals during this extended closure, our child nutrition director, and I are both confident we will be able to run a program similar to our summer lunch program to provide lunches for our students. We anticipate utilizing a grab and go process to distribute those meals. It was suggested in our board meeting, that we could even use this process to distribute educational support materials for those families which might need hard copies of those materials.

Again, enough of the official business statements. I truly want to express my appreciation for the community support we have felt during this time. For the first time in my memory, all Bingham County school leaders, both traditional and charter, met together to discuss the needs of our children in this great community. I hope the bridges built by this situation last long after it passes. Our unity is one example of the incredible community in which we live. I urge you to find an opportunity to unite rather than divide. I firmly believe together there is nothing we cannot overcome. Please stay tuned. We will share more information as it becomes available.
God Bless!
Brian Kress

Some great advice that was shared:

📍1. Help keep older relatives and neighbors self-quarantined at home. Same goes for those of any age who are immune compromised (cancer-patients, on immune-suppressant meds for autoimmune diseases, etc.) Pick up and deliver their groceries and prescriptions to their front-door for them.

📍2. Healthcare workers (physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, pharmacists, environmental services, EMS, etc.), law enforcement and other public agency workers are ESSENTIAL personnel and need to go to work. College students home from school and older high school students can help by stepping up to provide childcare for these families. It is NOT a good idea to ask grandparents to provide childcare if at all possible. The young and healthy can do their part.

📍3. Postpone all non-essential doctor’s appointments (check-ups and annual physicals, routine follow-ups, elective procedures, etc.) This is to prevent you from being exposed to sick people as well as to free-up physicians’ time to care for the acutely ill.

📍4. Save the Emergency Room for true emergencies only. Call your primary care doctor’s office before you head to the ER (i.e, NOT just if you have flu-like illness). Many things like rashes, constipation and muscle sprains can wait to be seen in a few days in the office, or recommendations can be given over the phone. DO NOT “play up” symptoms order to be given authorization to go to the ER.

📍5. At this time, tests for COVID-19 ARE NOT readily available for people with mild illness. If you are not sick enough to be admitted to a hospital for respiratory distress and low oxygenation, you are unlikely to be tested. DO NOT go to the ER, urgent care or your doctor’s office for a test just so you can definitively know if you can go back to work. It's not going to happen at this time. This may change in upcoming days as tests and the regulations on their use change.

📍6. Many children from low-income homes receive 2 free meals a day at school, and school cancellation for weeks may be a heavy burden to these families. Donate or volunteer at community food banks.

📍7. Your kids are going to go stir-crazy in the next weeks. Vacation plans are being cancelled. However, this is NOT a good time to go to the Children’s Museum, movie theater, arcade or other indoor group activities. Playing outside is a good idea, with the exception of people who have a history of asthma or environmental allergies (which may get worse outside). Put them to work with projects around the house: spring cleaning, cleaning out your closets, cleaning out the garage, etc.

📍8. Social distancing does not mean we should not continue to patronize businesses, but we should do it in responsible ways. Order take out instead of eating out. Order groceries online and pickup. Go to the grocery store at low-volume times (early morning).

📍9. Business owners, PLEASE send home employees with any sign of illness, and please be understanding of your employees struggles with lost income and finding alternative childcare. PLEASE DO NOT REQUIRE A DOCTOR’S STATEMENT from your employees.

📍10. Get your information from responsible sources. Do not stir panic. Do not hoard supplies or food. Do not take advantage of others’ misfortune or ill-planning. Be extra patient and kind with everyone and in all venues.

This is a great time to teach our children the value of community-mindedness, not wasting food or other goods, prudent use of resources, healthy habits like hand-washing and avoiding public outings if you are ill, planning not panicking, etc. Our children are watching and learning from us. "
