We hope everyone's summers are going well! Fowler School District R4J is targeting an on-time reopening in August 2020. Our goal is to return to in-person instruction with a school experience that is as close to 'normal' as possible while considering the safety and security of students and staff and adhering to current Health Department guidelines and rules. We will continue to work with the Otero County Health Department to ensure we are meeting current protocols and precautions. We will continue to emphasize personal health & hygiene, handwashing, and cleaning/disinfecting protocols. We are adding hand sanitizer stations and additional thermometers. We will implement other OCHD regulations regarding social distancing, group sizes, etc. as appropriate. We will provide a more detailed plan for our August return in late July.

In an effort to support Colorado’s families during the COVID-19 epidemic, the Colorado Department of Human Services and Department of Education have teamed up to secure USDA approval to issue Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) benefits to school-age children who would have received free or reduced-price meals during the time that schools have been closed for the 2019-2020 school year. It is also for children who would have been eligible for free or reduced-price meals in schools for March, April, or May due to loss of income in those months. Each eligible household with an eligible child will receive a card with approximately $279 per eligible child that you can use to purchase food at stores that accept EBT. For families that currently receive SNAP benefits, no action will be needed and benefits will be automatically issued in approximately mid-July. Families that currently do not participate in the SNAP program should visit https://www.colorado.gov/cdhs/p-ebt for application information. You will need your child's SASID number which can be obtained from Kelly Wager at 719-263-4364 or Kelly.wager@fowler.k12.co.us.

Please keep in mind these guidelines for deciding when to keep your children home from school: *Temperature above 100.0 – please keep them home until they have been without a fever for more than 24 hours without the use of medications. *Vomiting or Diarrhea – please keep them home until no vomit or diarrhea for 24 hours without the use of medications. *Antibiotics prescribed by a physician – please keep them home until they have received the medication for at least 24 hours *Cold, cough, sore throat, etc. – please use your best judgement and keep them home if they are frequently coughing, complain of difficulty swallowing, or have increased nasal discharge. Our goal is to reduce the spread of illness – please be considerate of this when making these decisions! School work that is missed can be completed upon return to school - our main concern is getting & keeping all of our students in good health!

At approx 4:15 today, Bus 16 was involved in an accident. A large wooden spool of fiber optic cable came off of a truck westbound immediately in front of our eastbound bus. The spool impacted the front of the bus, embedded in the engine block and front of the bus. The bus ended up against the guardrail. We had the driver and 1 student on board, both were treated on scene and released by emergency medical personnel. We would like to thank the Colorado Department of Transportation, Colorado State Patrol, Pueblo Sheriff Department, and the Fowler Volunteer Fire Department & EMT's for their help today.

From the Colorado Dept of Education: Free and Reduced Price School Meal Applications – Eligibility during government shutdown "During a temporary lay-off or federal furlough without pay, families can apply for free or reduced price school meal benefits using current income information. The shutdown represents a temporary reduction in income and families experiencing these reductions must have the opportunity to apply for benefits, if needed. Applications must include all other household income and be completed according to requirements. Once the shutdown ceases, families can request their meal benefits be terminated. For questions, contact free&reducedpriceschoolmeals@cde.state.co.us." Remember - you are welcome to submit an application at ANY time during the school year when your family and/or income situations change!
