The Boulder Valley School District is canceling classes on Friday due to staff shortages.
In a statement to families and staff, BVSD superintendent Rob Anderson said: “As we draw to a close next week, it became clear that we had enough options to cover the number of absentees expected next Friday and the Central Office.” There will be no employees.” “We have made the difficult decision to cancel classes on Friday, November 12. This will be used as a much-needed workday for BVSD staff who, again, this semester has been extended to breaking point.”
There will be no school in the district on Thursday on the occasion of Veterans Day. The statement said Friday was marked a “temporary day” on the BVSD academic calendar and that the decision, coupled with a continuing shortage of staff, forced the decision to be called off for the day.
BVSD’s child care team is working on November 12 to provide “free child care across 13 regional sites in hopes of meeting the needs of our working families,” the statement said. There is mandatory online enrollment with a deadline of 10 a.m. Tuesday, and priority will be given to children who regularly use the child care program.
Anderson told the BVSD community that Adams 12 Five Star Schools has also announced a district closure on Friday.
