Good Afternoon,
This is just a friendly reminder that Monday, January 17th, 2022 is Martin Luther King Jr Day and there is NO SCHOOL. Please take good care of yourselves and stay healthy!

Also, for your information, below are some resources that may be helpful:

Regardless of vaccination status, we will utilize the following protocols:

Isolation guidelines: Students and staff who have tested positive must isolate for five days and can return on day six after they have been symptom-free for 24 hours. They must continue to mask for the next five days.

Exposure & Symptomatic: If a student or staff member is exposed to COVID-19 and symptomatic, they need to isolate for 5 days. They can return to work or school and wear a mask for five days after they are symptom-free for 24 hours.

Quarantine guidelines: Students and staff who have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, regardless of where the person was exposed (for example home, school, work, etc) and regardless if they are able to isolate at home, can continue to report to work and school as long as they wear a mask for 10 days, and are asymptomatic. In summary, if there is exposure, if the person is asymptomatic, they can return to school and wear a mask for 10 days.

Contact tracing only needs to occur in situations where individuals were not wearing a mask (for example, lunch, athletic competition, etc.).

The illness Decision tree from CDH should be released this week. In the meantime, we have consulted with CDH and updated the Boise School District Illness procedure in hopes this will be a good resource for you.

The above guidance is based on the K-12 School Isolation & Quarantine Guidance from Central District Health. We hope that the above summary is helpful.

COVID-19 Information & Resources District Website
The 2021-2022 Boise School District COVID-19 Data Spreadsheet reflects the total number of students and staff in the District who have tested positive or presumed positive. The data does not reflect those individuals who are quarantining due to possible exposure or who voluntarily stay home due to self-monitoring. Students and staff members who have been identified as close contact of a positive COVID-19 case or presumed positive case will be specifically notified.

Learning Lab is back at Whittier this spring semester. Please see flyer in Swahili. Stay tuned for English/Spanish Flyer

What a FULL HOUSE tonight as we welcomed our future Lil Vikings at Kinder Orientation. Kinders and parents got to visit different classrooms and learned everything from kinder social readiness like, zippers and buttons, routines, to cutting, Zoophonics and 5 frames, to all the amazing resources our Community School offers. Each lil viking went home with a bag full of goodies to practice all summer long. We were honored to meet, and partner with our parents by setting the foundation to their child’s academic success. this is @ Boise School District Community Schools

Parents. This account has lots of valuable information especially when it pertains to our kids and the dangers of cell phones in their hands. If you’d like, please follow.

The secret Snapchat photo vault.

Snapchat has a secret picture vault in their application so that kids can hide pictures from their parents. Kids will often hide pictures and videos in the vault so that parents can not see them. Drug photos, n**e photos, party pictures, and much more can be hidden and locked away from parents.

As parents, it's a good idea to find out what your kids are keeping and hiding from you in their secret picture vault. You might be saving a life (your own child or someone else's child) by checking this vault. I have included some step-by-step instructions on how to get to the vault.

How to check your kid's Snapchat “secret” picture vault.

1) Open the Snapchat application on their phone (yellow icon with a white ghost). This will open up the main picture-taking page, you should see a live image ready to take a photo.

2) Below or beside the “take a picture button” (large circle at bottom of the screen) there is a small icon that looks like two playing cards. Press the two playing cards icon. You will be in their memories photos which are some of the photos they have taken with their Snapchat camera.

3) Along the top of the photos you should see some labels “SNAPS, CAMERA ROLL, MEMORIES, and MY EYES ONLY”. Press the MY EYES ONLY BUTTON.

4) If the phone pops up with a PIN entry keypad you will need the code from your kid. Standard answers when you ask your kid for their PIN is that they forgot or they never set it up. (see parental pin extraction techniques for further help if needed).

5) Once past the secret pin you will see the photos your kids usually don’t want you to see. Understand you are still not seeing the private disappearing snap chat messages they send back and forth to each other.

Happy parenting,

Deputy Gomez


Padres. Este pagina del señor Gómez tiene mucha información para familias. Especialmente sobre teléfonos celular y nuestros niños. Si gusta, siga su cuenta.

La bóveda secreta de fotos de Snapchat. (Spanish version - English version is below this article.)

Snapchat tiene una bóveda de imágenes secreta en su aplicación para que los niños puedan ocultarlas a sus padres. Los niños suelen ocultar imágenes y videos en la bóveda para que los padres no puedan verlos. Las fotos de dr**as, fotos de desnudos, fotos de fiestas y mucho más se pueden ocultar y guardar bajo llave para los padres.

Como padres, es una buena idea averiguar qué guardan y esconden sus hijos de ustedes en su bóveda secreta de imágenes. Es posible que esté salvando una vida (su propio hijo o el hijo de otra persona) al revisar esta bóveda.

He incluido algunas instrucciones paso a paso sobre cómo llegar a la bóveda. Cómo verificar la bóveda de imágenes "secretas" de Snapchat de su hijo.

1) Abra la aplicación Snapchat en su teléfono (icono amarillo con un fantasma blanco). Esto abrirá la página principal de toma de fotografías, deberías ver una imagen en vivo lista para tomar una foto.

2) Debajo o al lado del botón "tomar una foto" (círculo grande en la parte inferior de la pantalla) hay un pequeño icono que parece dos cartas de juego. Pulsa el icono de las dos cartas de juego. Estarás en sus fotos de recuerdos que son algunas de las fotos que han tomado con su cámara Snapchat.

3) A lo largo de la parte superior de las fotos, debería ver algunas etiquetas "SNAPS, CAMERA ROLL, MEMORIES y MY EYES ONLY". Presiona el BOTÓN SOLO PARA MIS OJOS.

4) Si el teléfono aparece con un teclado de ingreso de PIN, necesitará el código de su hijo. Las respuestas estándar cuando le pides a tu hijo su PIN es que lo olvidaron o que nunca lo configuraron. (Consulte las técnicas de extracción de pines parentales para obtener más ayuda si es necesario).

5) Una vez pasado el pin secreto, verás las fotos que tus hijos normalmente no quieren que veas.

Comprenda que todavía no está viendo los mensajes de chat instantáneos privados que desaparecen que se envían entre sí.

Paternidad feliz,
Diputado Gomez
