D91’s COVID-19 Response Plan germ

D91 has worked with Eastern Idaho Public Health to develop a response plan in the event a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19. If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, they will be advised to isolate for 10 days from symptom onset in accordance with EIPH’s guidance. D91 will notify parents when a student or staff member in their child’s class/grade level/school, bus or extracurricular activity tests positive for COVID-19. Learn more about the Plan.

D91 Unveils New Rules For Ravsten football

Idaho Falls School District 91 is excited to kick off the 2020-21 football season. As we work to mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19 in our schools and at district activities, D91 has new rules for Ravsten Stadium in accordance with guidance from local health officials. A limited number of tickets will be available for the football games. All parents and fans, including passholders, will need a voucher in order to purchase admission into the stadium. Vouchers will be distributed to players, students and then the general public. Fans who would like a voucher should call the IFHS or Skyline on game day and check availability.

Grades Appeal Process Now Open ABC

High school students can now appeal to have Pass/P grades for third trimester classes completed during the spring 2020 school closure changed to letter grades. Students who want to make an appeal must have successfully completed the end-of-course assessment for the class and earned a P. They must also complete the officials appeals form. Appeals can be submitted over the summer, but they won’t be reviewed until school staff return in the fall. The deadline to file an appeal is Jan. 8, 2021, but we recommend seniors file their requests by Oct. 1, 2020 so they can be processed in time for fall early decisions, etc. We encourage students to talk to their parents, teachers, counselors and college admissions offices to determine whether changing a P to a letter grade will benefit them. Learn more about the process.
