Message from Our Principal

This message from BMS Principal Lisa Oliver went out on Friday. It is replicated here for your reference.

Dear BMS Families,

We have a few updates for you to be aware of this week.

First, I would like you to know that there will be some adjustments to the schedules in each grade level within the hybrid model. This is to expand the opportunity to participate in the connect-in times to live classes on remote days. This will also allow students to make more connections to both their teachers and peers while working remotely. Please watch for communication from your child's teacher and/or assistant principal to explain in more detail.

Also, please be aware that we are looking to address some traffic challenges we are experiencing during drop off. Safety is of the utmost importance for our students and we ask that everyone please adhere to the protocols we have in place. We again ask that you only drop your child off in the live drop off or the Cummings Center. This is to ensure the safety of all.

As always, if you have any questions please email me at
Have a wonderful weekend!

Lisa Oliver
BMS Principal
