Visit Billings, in partnership with the Education Foundation for Billings Public Schools, Billings School District #2, Billings Catholic Schools, Montana State University Billings, Rocky Mountain College as well as Billings Clinic, St. Vincent Healthcare, OrthoMontana, and several other businesses and organizations like Jana Graham Photography, have helped organize and support a grassroots marketing and informational campaign. The campaign effort is focused on encouraging residents of Billings and visitors to Billings to do their part to keep our school doors open and area students in classrooms.
The goal is simple with this campaign, “Do Your Part - Keep Our School Doors Open.” We know the importance of having our school doors physically open. There is a direct impact on our economy and the workforce, community stability regarding crime, alcohol/drug abuse, and partner family assault, as well as the social, emotional, and physical well-being of our youth are impacted by having schools open to students.
Visit Billings is proud to be part of this united effort to communicate to our community and visitors the value and importance of doing our part to keep our school doors open. It affects all of us. Each of us has a stake in doing our part to keep school doors open, businesses operating, and our medical facilities operating at a level that is sustainable and safe with the needed equipment and supplies due to the pandemic.
This Do Your Part campaign aims to get people thinking about how critical it is to take safety precautions seriously during this time.
So please watch your distance, wear a mask, and wash your hands. The full COVID-19 directives from Montana’s Governor as well as more on the Montana Aware efforts can be found here: www.VisitBillings.com/COVID-19
Many may be experiencing fatigue with COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, but we must remain vigilant in doing the simple things we can do to mitigate the risk, so students and educators remain healthy and safe in the city’s classrooms.
So please, “Do Your Part - Keep Our School Doors Open.”
