Ms. Bitting’s 3rd grade students were surprised today to find a new incubator and quail eggs in their classroom when they arrived at school today! They will care for them as they learn all about the Bobwhite Quail embryo development stages for the next 3 weeks and hopefully hatch their chicks in May!

9/9/20 Dear Bureau Valley Junior High Parents and Students, In March 2020 the Bureau Valley School Board approved the addition of a BVJH JFL Program for the 2020/21 school year. We have been looking forward to a successful 2020 first season and a lot of hard work went into planning and preparing for our first year. However, according to the IDPH Sports Safety Guidance, football is placed into the highest risk category and teams are not allowed to participate in any contact practices, scrimmages or competitive play at this time. For the safety of our students, and in alignment with IESA, IHSA and the IDPH guidance, we regret to inform you that we are cancelling the BVJH JFL 2020 season. We will now turn our vision and attention to our 2021/22 season and look forward to building a successful program that will grow each year and enhance the high school football program for years to come.

PreK-5 Parent Information 8/18/20 Dear Bureau Valley PreK-5th grade parents, Last night the Bureau Valley School Board decided that the district will begin the school year with full remote learning for all students starting on Thursday, August 20th. We currently plan to return to in person learning on Wednesday, September 2nd, for those families who chose in person learning for the first quarter. We want to assure you that we understand and appreciate the excitement our students have on that first day of school when they get to go to school and meet their teachers for the first time. Our teachers feel this way too! With this in mind, we are planning a Material Pick Up Day on Wednesday, August 19th, from 8:00am until 6:00pm. Parents can bring their students to their school buildings, pull up to designated areas and their teachers will be there if possible to greet them and give them their materials. Students are not obligated to come, but we feel this opportunity is important for all involved. For this period of remote learning your students’ learning materials may include workbooks, technology directions and support documents, and a chromebook for 3rd-5th graders. If you have your own device at home for your students and prefer to use that please let us know when picking up your materials. All school devices are monitored by the district firewall and GoGuardian at all times and students must follow the chromebook usage guidelines included in the annual district registration forms. If you have already brought your child(rens) school supplies to school and need them back for remote learning please call the building secretary at least 1 hour prior to picking up your remote learning materials. Designated Areas for pick up: Manlius: Please enter the Junior High/Elementary entrance and circle around to line up in the bus lane in front of the main entrance. When you arrive someone will radio your child’s name inside so their teachers can come out with material. Walnut: Please enter the parking lot and drive east down the fire lane between the school and playground. Stop at the gym door and someone will radio your child’s name inside so their teachers can come out with material. Wyanet: Please enter the parking lot and pull up to the gym door. Someone will radio your child’s name inside so their teachers can come out with material. Elementary Remote Learning Expectations Log into Teacherease daily by 10 a.m. for attendance. Attendance means your child is well and plans on learning sometime during the day when it is convenient for your family. Instructions on completing attendance here. If your child is ill please call the office and let them know just like if there were in person. Log into Seesaw Pre K -2 or Google Classroom 3-5 daily starting Thursday, August 20th and complete the task assigned. If you are unable or need assistance, message your teacher so they can assist you. Here are the instructions for 3rd - 5th grade students on how to access google classroom which is where their learning will be digitally delivered. Emails and passwords will be emailed to parents from the teacher. Here are the instructions for Pre K - 2nd grade students on how to access seesaw class app which is where their learning will be digitally delivered. Access codes will be emailed to parents from the teacher. If you have a PreK-2 student who needs a device or a PreK - 5 family without internet or smart phone please call your building to make them aware and we will communicate a plan for your child to complete remote learning. As always we appreciate your continued flexibility and understanding. We look forward to learning together this year. Mrs. Cady & Mrs. Platz
