BIS, BMS closed for summer
Construction began as scheduled at BIS and BMS on May 26. The picture above shows the new space for the NEW BIS Library and was taken Monday, June 1. BIS and BMS administrators have moved to their temporary locations at BPS and BHS, respectively.
The Bolivar R-1 School District thanks our staff for their flexibility and patience as we improve our facilities this summer. For more information on summer construction projects as well as regular updates, visit http://bolivarschoolsconstructionprojects.blogspot.com/
Email, website to change July 1
As we look forward to next school year, we will be transitioning to the Google email platform Gmail. Your email address will remain the same, the only difference will be the icon you use to login to email. What this means for you is that on June 29th, the Outlook 365 email will be turned off and Gmail will be turned on. ALL EMAILS IN OUTLOOK 365 WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AFTER JUNE 29TH. If you have emails in Outlook 365 you want to keep, you will need to send them to a personal email address. After June 29th, you may then send from the personal email address to your bolivarschools.org account.
The District’s website will also change on July 1. The School Fusion pages will no longer exist after July 1. We will not have access to those pages or anything on them. If you have something on your School Fusion page that you wish to keep, please save it or transfer it to another website BEFORE JULY 1.
Google sites or Google Classroom will be the best platforms to use to develop your new page. As we move to Gmail, you will be able to use your bolivarschools.org address to login and create those sites. Your District Google accounts are already established. If you are not currently using your District Google account, you may login using your bolivarschoools.org email address as your login and teacher1 as the temporary password. If "teacher1" does not work for you, please contact Lori Henderson at email@example.com. PLEASE NOTE: The MAIL portion of your Google Account will not be live until after June 29.
