Ms. Woznick is finalizing the summer reading list! Students are invited to get a peek at some books that are under consideration. She'd like to get some feedback on students to help her make some final selections.
Students are invited to complete this survey to see book covers and short descriptions and so you can tell her more about what you like!

Beginning Monday, April 12, all BMS students who attend in-person will be at school 5 days a week until 3, except on Wednesdays when they will be dismissed at 1pm.
Lunches will be very different than in the past. On any given day, about half of students will be eating outside and they will rotate on a regular basis between indoor and outdoor locations. Outdoor areas are partially tented and will provide some protection from rain and sun.
This week will be cool and overcast with some possible showers on some days. Dress accordingly for both outdoor dining and scheduled outdoor snack/mask breaks during the school day.
There are also changes to the dropoff and pickup routine. The front entrance is ONLY for students arriving in certain buses and vans or those who are tardy, arriving after 8:45. All other students must enter through their own neighborhood doors between 8:30-8:45. Those eating breakfast may enter through the cafeteria doors at 8:15.
Please review this letter that went out Thursday to families with lots of details about changes that begin on Monday, April 12. Highlights are below, but please read the memo closely for details!
This information was contained in an email from Superintendent Sue Charochak that you may have received last week. The items that pertain to BMS students are replicated here for your convenience:Beverly Middle School and Elementary students and staff may participate in Covid-19 testing on Thursdays from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm at the Beverly High School cafeteria. The testing will be administered by Cataldo Ambulance and is voluntary. All BMS and elementary students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
All people (staff and students) interested in being tested need to sign up for an appointment by using this link. https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=21373514&calendarID=5156171
In the coming weeks, the district plans to expand the pooled testing opportunity to the Middle School. More information on that will be forwarded to you when it is finalized. In the meantime, we will continue to offer our PCR surveillance testing as a mitigation strategy for all students.
All testing information is confidential under HIPAA compliance laws. Positive cases are reported to the Beverly Board of Health.
