Friday Expectations

After being in Hybrid for a couple weeks now we have decided to solidify our Friday expectations across BHMS for students and class.

1. Teachers will be pulling small group and working with students who need more support. Teachers will notify students on Thursday if they are to zoom into class for Friday.

2. Asynchronous work will be provided for students who will not be checking in with teachers. on Fridays.

3. This is consider an attendance day. Presence on Zoom when requests or completion of asynchronous work is mandatory for Friday attendance
