Words from our Principal

BVM Families,

We made it to Spring Break!

Students and teachers will have a well-deserved two week break. Classes resume virtually on April 5th and some students will return in person on April 12th. You will be contacted directly if you responded YES to the in-person survey sent to by the district.

Please take a moment to read the BVM Reopening Letter I sent to all families this afternoon and contact me if you have any questions.

Yesterday we celebrated our Straight A and Perfect Attendance Students from first semester and our Rising Stars. Congratulations to all the students who received recognition and we hope your treat brightened your day! It was great to see you all. We are proud of your accomplishments!

Wishing you and your families a safe and happy spring break!
