Ways to Protect Your Student

Technology is a great tool when it is used correctly. However, when it is not, we want to make sure your child is protected. At MBP, we have lessons that share the importance of digital safety. These ways include:

-Not accepting requests from people you do not know

-Keeping your Social Media profiles 'private'

-Having air drop on your iPhone to off

-Not putting images or information online that you wish to remain private


Student Calendar Survey

Chatham County Schools is looking for your feedback regarding the 23-24 and 24-25 school calendar. There is a calendar survey under News on the district website. The survey will be up from Jan. 13 until Jan. 27.


Access Testing

ACCESS testing will take place for ML (multi-lingual) students February 6th- 10th. ACCESS stands for "Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State for English Language Learners." This test is given to students from kindergarten to grade 12, to assess their progress in learning English. Teachers use this information to help make decisions about instruction for your child. Teachers also use these test scores to monitor the progress your child makes toward English proficiency.
