Week 6

Dear BVL Parents,

October is not only the time of year for sweaters, cider mills, pumpkins and beautiful foliage, but it is also the month that the State of Michigan closely monitors our student attendance. Currently 85% of our students are meeting the weekly 2-way contact criteria, but obviously our goal is to get to 100%. Below is a simple reminder what constitutes as a 2-way contact.

Each student is counted as present by participating in two-way contacts with their homeroom teacher each week. BVL weeks begin on a Wednesday and end the following Tuesday .

This can be accomplished by:

  • Responding to teacher-initiated emails

  • A phone conversation

  • A virtual meeting

  • An in-person meeting
