It’s a Great Day to be a Bulldog!
Students, Parents, and Friends, As we were suspecting the State Board of Education voted to approve the recommendation of State Supt. Joy Hofmeister to close the schools for the remainder of the year while providing "Distance Learning," beginning April 6. Further, all extracurricular activities and events were cancelled citing the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control Recommendations for group size. We knew on Monday that this would likely happen today. Now, we know for sure, and we ask you to help us make the best of the situation. We can do it. Firstly, we do not know all the answers. We are looking at a mix of methods to best be able to serve your educational needs whether it be handouts, or digital material. We are aware that there are limitations, and will make every effort to accommodate those limitations when we can. We don't know the answers yet. So, please give us an opportunity to take a look at the information the State Department provides this week. We have already started working on a plan, and will communicate it to you as soon as we can do so. We have discussed plans to postpone HS Graduation if necessary. Although it is impossible to predict the future, we will be open to moving to a date that is determined to be safe by the authorities. We want those Seniors to have their day. In the meantime, please be safe. The Covid-19 virus continues to spread in our state and others. You have take every precaution to keep yourself and your family healthy. It is important for us all.

Parents and Students, Today in a statewide teleconference, State Supt. Joy Hofmeister notified us that beginning April 6, all schools would be providing educational opportunities through “Distance Learning.” Students will not be returning to the school this year. At Valliant, we started discussing and making plans for what Distance Learning may look like for our students. Over the next two weeks, we will be working with your teachers to plan for delivery and support of student lessons. Furthermore Supt. Hofmeister noted that all extracurricular events and activities would be cancelled for the remainder of the school year. The State Board of Education will meet on Wednesday to vote on her recommendations. This is a challenging time for us all. Right now, we do not have the answers to the “what if’s,” and “what about’s,” but we will always provide you the information that we know in a timely and honest fashion. Covid-19 is not a joke. Please use every precaution to keep yourself and your family safe from infection. The reality of our current situation is saddening, and the announcement that we would not be together again this year is disappointing. But the health of our community and family is paramount. We are Bulldogs! It’s time for us to live up to that mascot and do our part. None of us have ever been through something like this, but we will come through it together. #weareValliant It’s a Great Day to be a Bulldog! Craig Wallview image
