March 16, 2020 Extended School Closure Update

The District Leadership Team along with a board member met this morning and into the afternoon. The focus was on our top three priorities: Food service, childcare for medical professionals and first responders, and extended learning opportunities for our students. Here are a few updates:

  • Food service option of a sack breakfast/lunch and pick-up in the Valley School bus loop. Targeted start date for food pick-up is Thursday, March 19 from 9:00-11:00 a.m. Stay tuned for further updates.
  •  Childcare for medical professionals and first responders for students currently enrolled in the Valley Early Learning Center started today. We are exploring childcare options for medical professionals and first responders that have children enrolled in Valley School (K-8).
  • Staff will come to campus and their respective schools/departments tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17. Please follow the guidelines of 10 or less people and practice social distancing.

I am so proud to be part of the Valley School District Team! The District Leadership Team is working to answer some very challenging questions and we did work through some solutions today. Please know and prepare for change as this is rapidly evolving situation.


Ben Ferney, Superintendent
