Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community,

It has been an incredibly long month with continually changing information and decision-making regarding the Coronavirus. Thank you to all the parents, staff, and community members that have been understanding and patient as we try and create a viable way to educate our students. Starting April 6, 2020, Popplewell Elementary School will be passing out packets for each student according to their needs, and their grade level expectations. Teachers are also brainstorming on how to get in touch with parents and students if they have questions. Please watch for emails, private Facebook, Instagram, Google classroom, Hangout Meets, and other Applications from your child’s teacher. If your phone, address, or email has changed, please contact your child’s teacher through their email listed on

As a follow up to the governor’s expectations, all Idaho is under a stay at home order, unless identified in the category of essential workers. “The stay-home order requires citizens to self-isolate at home even when not visibly sick. This excludes essential workers as defined in the full-text order, which will be posted on People can leave home to obtain or provide essential services, which are defined in the order.” Please go to the following link for the entire mandate. 

I want to reassure you that there have been no cases reported at Popplewell Elementary School. The safety of the students and faculty is our utmost priority.

Thank you to the Buhl Community for all of the support that is given. Thanks also for passing the levy! The Buhl School District Staff, Students, and Administration are very grateful!

Cynthia Cooper,

Principal Popplewell Elementary
