Covid-19 Response - Updated 9/18/20, 10:00 AM

Stakeholders, Parents, and Community Members,

Our leadership team met yesterday afternoon (09/17/20) to discuss the next step as outlined in the plan adopted by our Board on August 11th. The leadership team examined the most recent COVID facts, analyzed the data provided through the district health websites, CDC, and consultation with Medical professionals, statewide, to come to our conclusion to proceed with the next step in the plan. We have agreed as a leadership team to proceed with the following schedule to open up the ISDB campus:

  • September 28th - D/HH preschool-elementary (up to 5th graders) will return to in person education.
  • October 5th - All BVI students will return to in person education. (Cottage Students will travel October 4th)
  • October 12th - The rest of our D/HH students will return (Middle School/High School)

All students and staff (those who can put on and take off masks unassisted) will be required to wear PPE within the CDC recommendations

Because we serve the entire state, we recognize the responsibility of transporting kids from areas that may have higher COVID rates than others. We take very seriously the recommendations outlined by the Governor, State Board of Education, State Board of Education, and the Department of Health and Welfare. As a result, we are proceeding cautiously through our reopening plan.

Lastly, we have many parents, students, staff, and teachers who have wanted us open and in person for a while. I, personally, really miss those little faces on campus, but I still feel that we have made the right decision in progressing the way that we are. I welcome any input or feedback you might have. Thank you again for all of your support.

Be Well, Be Safe, We got this!!!

Pin the nose on Voldemort game

We celebrated the 20th anniversary of the publication of J. K. Rowling's "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" by going to Hogwarts on Halloween!

ISDB students had a truly magical day playing Quiddich, drinking Butterbeer and eating Cauldron Cakes and Pumpkin Pasties. They stopped by Honeyduke's Candy Shop for a taste of Chocolate Frogs, Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, Sherbet Lemons, Scamander's Newts and Golden Snitches after being sorted into Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin Houses by the Sorting Hat. They played with potions, read Harry Potter books and cast a few good spells with their magical wands before playing Pin the Nose on Voldemort-protected by a stag Patronus, of course....

We loved learning about the universe that J.K. Rowling created when she wrote these books, and our students all looked forward to reading them if they hadn't before, or leaving the Muggle world behind for another tour of the magical world of Harry Potter.
