Bruneau-Grand View School District News
In a small community like ours, area schools are often the center of the neighborhood. It’s where children and families alike gather for the betterment of the community. To that end, we have many family-friendly events and programs planned throughout the year. We also like to publicize the accomplishments of our students and staff. Stop by often to find out all the latest!

As you may be aware, there has been a recent outbreak of measles in neighboring states. Measles is a serious respiratory disease that causes a rash and fever. The best way to protect against measles is to administer the measles-mumps-rubella shot (MMR vaccine). Please view our letter to parents and guardians and go over this informational flyer (Spanish) for more prevention education.
The supplemental levy election is coming March 12, 2019.

Children should dress appropriately for the weather each day. Children are expected to go outside except during extremely cold days (10 degrees or colder). Children need to have fresh air and exercise as a part of their school day. Please ensure that your child is appropriately dressed. All children will go outside for fresh air and a classroom break. If they are well enough to attend school, they will join all other classmates outside.
If we cancel school due to inclement weather, we will notify families via all-call and the school's closure will be posted on this website.
As part of our comprehensive crisis response plan, BGV staff received training in the A.L.I.C.E. system this past fall. A.L.I.C.E. training provides preparation and planning for individuals and organizations on how to proactively respond to the threat of an aggressive intruder or active shooter. We invite you to read more about the A.L.I.C.E. process and training in this letter to all BGV parents.
