Mr. Corso's Weekly Update

August 16, 2020

Positive Raiders: Responsible, Respectful, Hard Working and Kind

Mr. Corso’s Principal’s Message

2020-2021 BMMS Virtual Bell Schedule: Families, this week, BMMS finalized our virtual bell schedule. Our schedule link below will also be posted on our website soon. This virtual bell schedule will be used while all instruction is done virtually. When we are able to return to campus, these families returning will shift to a bell schedule that starts at 7:40am so we are able to provide PUSD transportation to BMMS.


Students will have approximately 20 minutes of Live Zoom with their teachers on Mondays (classes are significantly shorter), and approximately 30 minutes each class Tuesday - Friday. Homeroom and Office Hours will provide time for social-emotional and academic support. When looking at the schedule, please note that students either have 4th or 5th period. No student is assigned both. Any alternative schedule (for example: minimum day bell schedule) will be shared with all families.
