Dear Boulder High School Community,
I want to take this opportunity to share my deep appreciation for everything our community is doing as we respond to the current challenges. Given the unprecedented times we are living in as a result of COVID-19, many in our community are likely experiencing moments of anxiety and concern. Please know that the Boulder High School staff is committed to supporting our students during this difficult time, and we will remain flexible when working with students around attendance and assignments. I also encourage those students who are in need of additional support to reach out to their teachers, counselors, or administrators. Our goal is to provide unique and creative home-learning opportunities that will continue to educate our students while schools are closed. Above all, please practice self-care for yourselves, our community, and each other.
As Dr. Anderson has mentioned in his communications, we understand the need for flexibility during this time. I know some of our students have experienced tech issues and problems with internet access, Schoology, and other digital platforms that are being used. In these situations, please reach out to your teachers and they will work with you. We understand that problems will arise during this transition. Fortunately, we have been able to find solutions once we are made aware of these problems.
Also, it is important that you check your email daily for updates. Be sure to read through all communication that is sent out from the school district and Boulder High. These updates are designed to keep you informed on the latest information. Being informed is also a great way to decrease your stress level. Remember, we are all in this together.
Finally, I want to thank the entire BHS staff for their flexibility, resourcefulness, and professionalism during this time. They have spent countless hours setting up their platforms in order to continue to educate our students. I also want to thank our student body, especially our senior class of 2020. Your resiliency is inspiring, and I look forward to the day when we can celebrate you. Like always, please contact me, or any administrator, with questions or concerns. Be safe.
James A. Hill, Ed.D.
