Snow day closure information

The Bear Valley Unified School District transports approximately 2,500 children to and from school each day.
In making decisions about the closure of schools, safety is the primary concern. The School District works with
the Highway Patrol and weather forecasting sites in attempting to make proper decisions regarding school
closure. Decisions must be made by 5:00 a.m. if buses are to be stopped and parents notified.

Please see the attached flyer about snow day closures and information.

ESSER III - Additional Funding for Schools

We have received additional funding from the State to be used to address students' academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs as well as any opportunity gaps that may have existed before and were worsened by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please take a few minutes to click the link above to take the survey. Your input is always valued and appreciated.
