Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members:

This correspondence is difficult to write and quite frankly very disappointing to send.  Last Thursday, Governor Little introduced his “Idaho Rebounds” plan for reopening our state.   As we explained in our last update, the State Board of Education directed all school districts and charter schools to extend their soft closure for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year or until the local Board receives guidance from the State Board of Education for re-opening protocols. This motion was approved at the April 13 Troy School Board meeting. 

In reviewing Governor Little’s plan for reopening, Stage 2 – May 16-29: “Gatherings, both public and private, of less than 10 people, where appropriate physical distancing and precautionary measures are observed can occur”.  Whether we can meet the State Boards reopening protocols or not, given the Governor’s requirement and in consultation with our board, having the students return to their respective buildings this year is not in the best interest of the health of our students, staff, and the Troy community.

I am particularly disappointed for our seniors, as they were not able to share these last couple of months with staff, friends, and classmates.  We are however, committed to honoring our seniors with a graduation ceremony.  We are currently in the planning stages, and will make sure to communicate as plans are solidified.

We will continue to deliver instruction remotely until May 20, and want to remind you that we are here to help, and want to hear how we can support our students and families.

Personally, I want to thank our teachers, paraprofessionals, transportation, food service, administrative assistants, custodians and maintenance for their tireless dedication to our students and residents of the Troy community during this crisis.

Traditionally at this time of year, most all are anxious for the summer break, but I find myself eager for the calendar to turn to August 26. I am confident that when we all meet again, we will move forward in a safe, healthy and happy environment.

I hope all of you have a peaceful summer!

Sincerely, 
Brad Malm
