Week of January 18-22, 2021
No School Jan. 18 in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Food Services Update
This week during the distribution, we will be piloting a Food Recovery Program, in partnership with Sustainable Connections. Bring any unwanted, shelf-stable items you are not using back to one of the 15 school locations. Your unwanted cans and food products will find a new home.
As we have in weeks past, we encourage all families to pick up a free box of 14 meals and support our Food Services Program and the Good Food Project. Boxes are distributed from 4 to 5:30 p.m. every Wednesday at 15 school locations and six community locations.
When you arrive in the meal box line, let the staff on hand know you have food for the Food Recovery Program. They will direct you to the drop-off box. School sites only.
Beyond the Birds and the Bees: information night on sexual health education will be offered at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18, 2021
Initiative 90 did not change anything about our curriculum in Bellingham Public Schools. In our schools, policy and procedure 2125 govern sexual health education. We offer parents and guardians an opportunity to review materials to be used in our classroom; after which they may choose to exclude their child from sexual health education instruction. Fifth grade curriculum can be reviewed here. For grades 6 to 8, we use the KNOW curriculum, available here. High school health classes use the FLASH curriculum, with information available here.
This school year, we will share some information in a virtual setting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 18. You may send questions in about this information after viewing the short presentation. Send questions to email@example.com.
