Message From the Principal
Hello BW Families,
Change is definitely our constant as we start our journey into the second half of our school year. We continue to navigate an ever-changing pandemic and learn and grow how to serve the varying needs of kids. This week, we will gather as a community to talk about the next layer of change for our school. On February 16th, we will welcome all of our in person learners back to school for 4 days of in person. Please join us for our family meeting on February 3rd at 9am or 5pm (zoom links below) to talk about these changes and what it means for your child whether they are in person or virtual. We look forward to connecting with you soon!
The pandemic has certainly created new pivots and challenged us to think creatively about how we do things in school. One of those pivots are school pictures. Starting the week of February 8th, we will take school pictures for students in person through their PE classes. Grade level principals will share when your child's PE class will take their pictures so kids can be picture ready.
Please be on the lookout for information soon from your grade level principals, Mr. Flinn, Dr. Rooks and Dr. Pautsch.
Black History Month
Return to School Handbook
The Return to School Handbook, will be able to share some of the changes to our typical school practices. Please read through with your child in order to prepare for some of the changes they will see at school.
A Note from the Nurse
If your student will require daily medication or treatments (inhaler, diabetes care, etc) while back at school, please contact me as soon as possible to arrange medication drop-off. Your student's pediatrician office can fax the following important plans to me if applicable: asthma action plan, diabetes action plan, or seizure action plan. Also, please feel free to call me if you have any questions or updates regarding your student's current health.
Looking forward to keeping your students healthy and safe!
