Updated Resources and Information
Lunch OptionsSack lunches for all students are available for pick-up at the Eagle Valley High School and Battle Mountain High School bus loops starting Monday, March 16 from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM .Lunches will be available Monday through Friday. In order to reduce public circulation, please send just one person per vehicle. The driver should remain in their car, and staff will ask how many lunches are needed. Please do not send someone who is sick to pick up lunches. If you have a neighbor who can't drive or make the time, offer to pick up for them, too. You can safely leave lunches on their doorstep when someone is home.
HERE is the form for self-reporting suspected cases of COVID-19, since the current limited testing has been reserved for those with symptoms in high risk (over the age of 60, underlying conditions) groups and our healthcare providers and first responders.

Will the school year be extended?
We have no plans to extend the school year at this time but, again, we are continually assessing and adapting to this rapidly evolving situation.
