September is National Preparedness Month. It is a perfect time, as we settle into the new school year, to remind everyone of our plan for emergencies in the Boulder Valley School District, as well as providing some resources to ensure our families are ready if a disaster strikes at their home or in our community
As we start out the new school year, learn more about how our team has continued its work on our All Together for All Students strategic plan to ensure all students succeed.
We are honored that six of our family partnerships programs have been featured as exemplars in the 2021 CDE Promising Partnerships Practices book.
“Time is our most valuable commodity,” shares Monarch High Principal Neil Anderson. “And without time we can’t do the work we want to do to improve student outcomes, growth and success.”
We look forward to welcoming our students back to school starting tomorrow. Prior to students arriving in the morning, we wanted to provide one last reminder about the health precautions and COVID-19 protocols everyone can expect when they visit our schools.
Knowing the importance of in-person learning and the daily social interactions for our students – our focus in BVSD is on doing everything possible to keep kids in in-person learning five days a week.

We will continue to use the 5-phase Back Together BVSD Reintroduction plan to quickly and flexibly respond to any public health concerns. Look out for another emailed update, following the update from our public health partners on August 10.
It is very important to complete an Application for Free & Reduced Meals for this upcoming school year. BVSD is proud to be able to continue offering free meals to all students, thanks to a waiver granted by the USDA. We also want to let families know that school meal applications are good for more than just free meals.
