Boulder Elementary School is committed to providing a healthy learning environment for all students and staff. With the current

state of health in the country and across the globe we would like to provide the following helpful links to information

concerning Covid-19 also known as Corona Virus. At this time there are ZERO confirmed cases in the state of Montana (per

any further questions please contact the Jefferson County Health Department at 406.225.4007

From Boulder Elementary Student Handbook: 

ILLNESS - Ill Students will be sent home. When in doubt, the school will call home and ask the parent/guardian to make a

decision as to whether a child should remain in school, go home, and/or receive medical attention.  If the child is ill with a

communicable disease, a report from a doctor or health department may be necessary before the child returns to school. 

Emergency protocols will be developed and on file in the office and the classroom for students with IDEA or Section 504

disabilities which may require extra medical precautions. A doctor's excuse is required if a student is to stay in during recesses

for more than one day.
