Message from the Principal

Hello BBE Family !! I hope this newsletter finds you safe and in good spirits. We, here at BBE, are anxiously and excitingly awaiting for the first day of school on Wednesday, August 12th. Our teachers have been preparing for the reopening of school for about two weeks. Below you will find helpful links, resources, schedules, and dates to better assist you during your child's remote learning options.


One big ticket item is Canvas. Canvas is where the teachers will upload assignments, activities, assessments, and videos. Check out this helpful video from a parent.


Proud to love, care, and serve you !!


Jim Gassaway

1st Week of School. What you need to Know !

The first day of school is August 12th. At 8:00 a.m., all teachers will begin with a ZOOM morning meeting. Then, each grade level will follow their schedule for the day that includes synchronous and asynchronous learning sessions. Each teacher will provide a zoom link in their canvas course. Be sure to have the latest version of zoom downloaded on your device. This typically occurs the first time you zoom, so you may need to log in a few minutes early on the first day.


Synchronous: live, real-time learning through zoom with the teacher.


Asynchronous: learning occurs independently through the canvas course.

Grade Levels Return to School

Starting Monday, August 17th and continuing through September 4th, the District is inviting grade levels to their campuses for face to face instruction. Parents choosing to keep their children at home can still continue with their asynchronous activities through Canvas. The start time for these days ( Elementary - Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday ) is 8:00 am and ending at 2:30 p.m.


The car rider line will start receiving students at 7:45 a.m. Transportation will run their AM and PM routes. Visit the transportation page, click here, for arrival and drop off times.


Students will participate in lunch, recess, PE, art, music, and library. Parents needing to deposit money on the child's lunch account, can click here for Myschoolbucks Account.
