As we prepare to head off for Winter Break, I want to provide you with information about what you can expect in January, as Boulder Valley School District students not only return to class on Tuesday, January 5*, but back to in-person learning.
As we close out 2020 I’m reminded how fortunate we are to be a part of a community, a neighborhood, a school that has essentially become like family. When travel plans have been cancelled, student’s return to home learning, and Holiday dinners are smaller, we've turned to our neighbors, our teachers and our staff at Meadowlark to help “staying at home” seem less daunting.
Throughout 2020, where seeing family has been few and far between I want to thank you, the Meadowlark Family for showing up in big ways from teaching your own children, providing Thanksgiving meals for families in need, to giving generously to the Gift of Giving this year.
I’m looking forward to a New Year, but I also hope the closeness of being part of this community will last for generations to come. May we look back at 2020 and realize that everything we learned was not lost, but just made us stronger, kinder and more compassionate.

This week we welcomed back the last wave of students for in-person learning. It has been great to see students back in our buildings, getting direct support from their teachers, interacting with their friends, and simply being kids again. We are, however, tracking some concerning data when it comes to COVID-19 cases in our community and state.

It is already time for Distro Day #2 that is set for Monday, August 31, 2020. All of the items will be organized outside around the Hug n’ Go lane for quick and safe pick-up. Also, a continued reminder, families are asked to return all Meadowlark books and materials that may still be at home with the exception of the electronic devices you may have checked out last spring. Pick up is done by vehicle only - no walk ups.

Fear can be a powerful force. BVSD school administrators say it has driven some to forget that we are all part of the same community, trying to get through this international pandemic together
During the pandemic, every BVSD school has had to offer online classes. However, Boulder Universal, BVSD’s online school, has been offering virtual classes for 10 years. But through COVID-19, BU Principal Eric Moroye discovered the need for another version of online schooling.
