    We Miss You BFHS Students!

    News ReleaseThe State Board of Education implemented a soft closure for all schools across Idaho until April 20th. A soft closure means students will not be attending school physically, but will be participating in online and/or packet work based on our district plan. Below are a list of items decided at the meeting this afternoon that will impact students and/or staff in Boundary County School District #101:

    • Our district will continue to offer essential services to our local communities to the best of our ability. We will offer food, both breakfast and lunch, at 6 locations between 8:30 and 9:30: base of Camp Nine, Mount Hall Elementary, Moyie Springs (Hope House), 3-Mile (airport), Naples Elementary, and Boundary County Middle School. We will also offer child care at 4 locations through this week at Mount Hall Elementary, Naples Elementary, Valley View, and Boundary County Middle School. Please continue to check our website at www.bcsd101.com for any changes.
    • We will implement remote learning for our K-12 students. Beginning April 6th we will start our online learning plans and/or packet completion. Teachers will be communicating with parents/guardians. The plan is designed to sustain an extended school closure or for the remainder of the year, if necessary.
    • We are developing plans to deliver special education services based on guidance from the U.S. Department of Education.
    • Senior project and the college entrance exam requirements are waived for graduating seniors.
    • Statewide ISATs in ELA, Math, and Science and alternative assessments are all waived for this year.

    Based on the meeting this afternoon our district will submit a request for reduced instructional hours based on the current closure.

    The Idaho High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) will evaluate spring sports. Based on the soft closure discussed above, students cannot be on campus right now until April 20th. The IHSAA board will meet on March 31 to provide more information.

    A plan will be developed to decide when and if students return to school this academic year. Input and guidance from Panhandle Health, the State Department of Education, and the State Board of Education will be used to design the plan.

    Please continue to check our website for new and changing information at www.bcsd101.com . We continue to receive new information and guidance on a daily basis. Our plans may change based on this information.

    Dear Parent/Guardian:

    We understand that the Novel Coronavirus, now known as COVID-19, is causing anxiety in our community, country and the world. Panhandle Health District (PHD) in partnership with Boundary County School District is working to provide you with the most up to date information on this rapidly evolving situation. Following is a brief overview of the current situation. For more information and FAQ’s, we recommend you visit www.cdc.gov/.

    W HAT IS KNOWN

    • The virus causing COVID-19 is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified and causes a respiratory illness ranging from a mild cold-like illness to severe pneumonia.
    • Most (80%) of people diagnosed with COVID-19 in China had mild disease, including most children.
    • Similar to influenza, the people who are most likely to have severe disease and complications from COVID-19 are older individuals (>60 years old) and those with other medical conditions like heart and lung disease or diabetes.
    • There is no vaccine or treatment currently available for COVID-19 but the National Institutes of Health is evaluating treatments and developing a vaccine already.
    • Currently, there is NO confirmed community spread of COVID-19 in the Panhandle, meaning the virus is not being spread from person-to-person. However, experts predict there will eventually be community spread. PHD is preparing for when/if this happens.

    H OW THE VIRUS SPREADS

    • COVID-19 is believed to spread primarily the same way the common cold or flu spreads—through respiratory droplets that are produced when someone coughs or sneezes.
    • People who are most at risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 are those who have been in close contact (within about 6 feet) with someone who has the disease.
    • People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest).
    • Some spread of the virus might be possible before a person has symptoms; there have been reports of this with COVID-19, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

    W HAT YOU CAN DO NOW

    • Keep children home when they are sick.
      • Students (and parents/guardians) who are ill, especially with acute respiratory symptoms (not allergies or chronic conditions), should stay home.
    • Teach your children to always cover their cough and sneezes with a tissue or elbow.
    • Remind them to wash their hands with soap and water (or use hand sanitizer) after they touch their face, use the restroom and before they eat.
    • Tell children to avoid touching their mouth and nose since that is how germs get into the body.
    • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects (everyday household disinfectants are fine)
