Errol Hassell Family News- September 18, 2020


EHSL Families,

I apologize for the disproportionate amount of wait time on Help Desk this week. Again, I appreciate your patience while we figured this out as a district.

Your child's academic schedule should begin to look consistent. At 8:00 a.m. each morning, every class gathers on Zoom for a 30 minute community building session. This is followed by a mix of live (synchronous) and pre-recorded (asynchronous) lessons, plus independent practice (applied learning). Lunch is 11:00a.m - noon. School resumes from noon-2:00 p.m.with the same mix of learning opportunities.

In BSD, we teach using the following curriculum:

Reading and Writing: Teachers' College Units of Study

Math: Math Workshop

Science: Twig (More info coming soon. This is a new adoption)


- SeeSaw Tutorial

- Family Toolkit

- SchoolMessenger settings

- Chromebook/ iPad: pay the fee, opt out if you qualify for free or reduced lunch, or not pay. The $20 insurance covers loss or damage.

EHSL Library

There are two ways to check out books at Errol Hassell.

1) Come by the school Tuesdays 10:30 a.m.- 12:30 p.m. to check out books at the main entrance. We will have a curbside library open.

2) Reserve a book online and we will have it ready for pick up in the office within 48 hours. If you do not see a notice in your child's EHSL library account within 48 hours, please email Mrs. Plew at

Each student’s Youth Access Card number is just BSD followed by their student ID number. The default PIN is just the last 4 digits of their student ID number.

For example: Library card number= BSD123456 PIN=3456


Errol Hassell has been approved as a food site beginning Sept. 22. We will offer food for pick up on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11-noon for all children 18 years old and younger. Drive or walk up to the cafeteria and we will give a bag of food to you.
