Important Letter from BMS Principal Mrs. Oliver

BMS families should be receiving this email from the principal on August 12, but it is replicated here for your convenience.  

Dear BMS Families,

As a follow up to our recent school committee meeting vote, I am reaching out with additional information and a request for your assistance. 

As we open in the fall of 2020, grades 5 and 6 will be in a hybrid model. This means that each grade will be divided into two cohorts. These cohorts will be face to face with teachers two times a week from 8:45 - 1:00.

Grades 7 and 8 are to begin the school year in a remote environment which may change based on data regarding Covid19.  All students are eligible for the Remote Learning Academy and can enroll for remote learning for the entire school year.

Attached you will find a survey outlining our need to receive a decision from you in terms of how your child will start the school year. This should be completed no later than Tuesday, August 18th

You will also find a flyer explaining the Remote Learning Academy coupled with a FAQ flyer to help answer your questions.

We know this is a challenging time for many. We encourage you to reach out with questions. A lack of information often causes additional and unnecessary stress and anxiety. We are striving to be clear, consistent and empathetic to individual needs with our communication.

I look forward to building strong relationships with families and look forward to working with you to provide the best possible learning environment for your child. Now more than ever we need to work together to problem solve and be positive role models for our community.

This information can also be found on Homeward Bound.
