From the Principal's Desk

Warm Winter Greetings!

I hope you have been staying warm and that the winter break was enjoyable!

As you aware, BCPS is continuing to move forward after the ransomware attack this past November. Students with a windows-based device will need to have the device reimaged. As soon as a schedule for elementary students is offered, I will be sure to share this information with you. Students with Chromebooks do not need have their device reimaged.

Conference Day will be on January 13th. Teachers have shared this information with parents already. If you would like to schedule a conference, there is still time! Please send an email to the teacher and let them know that you are interested in meeting.

Stay well and take care!

Mrs. O’Neill, Principal

Blankets and Books

We had a fabulous time at our Blankets and Books night in December. So many families joined us to on December 8th to hear different teachers read a special book. Thank you for joining us on this special night! We are hoping to have another reading night soon.

Special Education Corner

At the current time, due to the recent ransomware attack, BCPS is unable to safely hold IEP meetings. As a result, IEP meetings will be on hold until a safe solution is developed. All teams that were previously scheduled and missed due to these extenuating circumstances will be rescheduled and prioritized accordingly. The county is working on a safe solution to this problem, and as soon as this is made available, Mr. Paradis will be in touch to reschedule. The IEP team at Wellwood thanks parents for their patience and understanding as this problem is resolved.
Big picture

BCPS Calendar

During a typical school year, BCPS distributes calendars to all families. Due to buildings being closed, BCPS is sharing a link. If you would like a copy of the calendar, please let me know. I will print the calendar and mail it to you. YOu can also access the BCPS calendar from the BCPS website.

BCPS Calming Rooms

During overwhelming times in our life, it's important to find ways to relax and cope. The BCPS virtual calming room is a space that has been designed for students, families, and staff to identify and implement tools and strategies for navigating emotions and feelings.

​​The BCPS virtual calming room is broken down into seven categories: Animals, Books and Games, Creative, Mindfulness and Movement, Resources, Sensory, and Virtual Tours.

The BCPS virtual calming room is a result of collaborative efforts by the Mind Over Matters Campaign workgroup, Mental Health Services, Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), and the Office of Psychological Services.
