DCR1 TRANSITIONS TO THE ORANGE LEVEL-September 10, 2020
As we monitor the active COVID cases in our school district and county, we feel it is necessary to transition into the Orange phase of our Reopening Plan. School will continue to operate under the Yellow phase with students attending school Friday and Monday, September 11 and 14. School will be closed for seated and virtual learning Tuesday, September 15. Students will not physically attend school on Wednesday, September 16. It will be an Alternative Methods of Instruction Extended (AMI-X) day. Teachers will be available by email and phone. Each Wednesday, students will participate in AMI-X during the Orange phase. School will reopen in the Orange phase Thursday, September 17 as a B Day, with students attending Thursday and Friday, whose primary guardian’s last name begins with the letters L-Z. Monday and Tuesday, September 21-22 will be A Days with students attending whose primary guardian’s last name begins with letters A-K. Students at BHS and BPMS may still participate in activities with mask and social distancing guidelines. More information about the Reopening Plan is attached to the email sent along with this message.
Please complete a survey in the parent portal from a web browser as it will not work in the mobile app. The survey will allow parents to request meals be sent home with their students on Tuesdays and Fridays. Milk will not be sent home with students but parents may pick up milk at the BHS south cafeteria door on Fridays, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. beginning September 18. You will also review your child’s attendance days and method of instruction which was selected during the back to school registration process of virtual instruction or physical materials instruction. PARENT PORTAL
Finally, we ask parents to help reinforce to their students that wearing a mask is required on the school bus. Please be sure your child has their mask on when it’s time to board the bus and they must wear it at all times on the bus. This requirement is for student safety. If students are not wearing their masks, they may not be allowed to board the bus or be addressed as a discipline issue. Thank you in advance for helping the bus drivers enforce this requirement.
