District to Launch Three-Day BVSD Fire Assistance Center for Affected School Families and Staff

Assistance center to operate September 8-10 from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM in BVSD Education Center at 6500 E. Arapahoe Rd. in Boulder.

The Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) announced Tuesday afternoon that it would operate an assistance center for BVSD families and staff impacted by the Fourmile Canyon wildfire. The assistance center will be open from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM beginning Wednesday, September 8 through Friday, September 10. It will held in the Board Meeting Room of the BVSD Education Center located at 6500 E. Arapahoe Rd. in east Boulder. The center will be under the direction of BVSD Executive Director of Student Success Karen Daly.

“The purpose of this center is to provide resources and services to our BVSD students, families and employees in the aftermath of the Fourmile Canyon wildfire,” stated Ms. Daly.

Meant to serve as much as possible as a “one stop shop” for impacted BVSD community members, the assistance center will address:

  • BVSD Transportation Services
  • McKinney-Vento Act federal benefits for displaced students
  • BVSD Human Resources
  • Assistance Services for Coping with the Effects of Crisis
  • Local Red Cross Personnel
  • School Supplies Provided by Impact on Education through the “Crayons to Calculators” Program
  • School Representatives
  • BVSD Community Schools (Kindergarten Enrichment & After School Care)

Ms. Daly thanked both Impact on Education and the Red Cross for joining in this three-day effort to ease the burdens of those BVSD community members suffering from the effects of this terrible incident.
