In Memoriam - Senior JT Hallford

We are so saddened by the loss of Senior Joshua (JT) Hallford during Spring Break. JT always had a laugh or a smile for someone who needed it. JT was loved by students and staff alike. Our thoughts are with JT's family during this time.


We can expect for our students to continue to process this news and we will be doing everything we can to support them through this difficult time.


As our students work through their own shock and grief, the lack of available information about what happened can put them at an increased risk for harm. Grief and loss can also worsen mental health symptoms that are already present for people. Please be vigilant in knowing the warning signs for suicide and other harmful behaviors, including substance abuse.

MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL TODD CORSETTI

The start of Hybrid learning is right around the corner. We know there are many questions arising regarding our impending start to Hybrid on Thursday, April 22nd. Here is a list of FAQs:


1) In-Person Hybrid

This model will provide onsite instruction for all students, rotating on an every other day schedule. Students will be assigned to either Group 1 and attend in-person classes on Mondays and Thursdays or Group 2 and attend in-person classes on Tuesdays and Fridays. For example, a Day 1 cohort student will attend four classes in person on Monday and Thursday and be at home, on Zoom, Tuesday and Friday. This means that when students are not in-person, they will be accessing their classes from home via synchronous instruction which is similar to students’ experience now.


On Wednesdays, all students will engage in asynchronous, online instruction per our normal Wednesday schedule thus far.

(Please see the chart below for a visual of the weekly and daily schedule).


2) Staying in Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL):

This model is essentially a replica of what all students have been participating in so far this year. Students in CDL will be on Zoom everyday for each class. Families who choose the CDL option will follow the same schedule as those who are in-person and will access classes via Zoom each day.


On what date will the In-Person Hybrid start?

Mon., 4/19, 4/20, & 4/21 are Staff Development days for teachers to prepare for in-person students to return.

All students start Quarter 4 classes on Thursday, 4/22.

For those who chose Hybrid:

Group 1 will start in-person on 4/22

Group 2 will start in-person on 4/23

For those who chose only CDL, your classes also start on 4/22


I heard that school will not look like “school” if my student is returning to In-Person Hybrid. Can you explain what that means?

If you elected for your student to return to in-person school, it is important to know that it will look and feel different from what we remember about school pre-COVID. Here are the main features of this option that will be different than what we’ve come to expect:

  • All persons will be required to wear masks – students, staff, and guests – for the entire time that a person is on district property. Per the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance, “students who abstain from wearing a face covering, or students whose families determine the student will not wear a face covering during On-Site instruction must be provided access to instruction. Comprehensive Distance Learning can and should be provided when this decision is values-based. However, additional provisions do apply to students protected under ADA and IDEA.” In these cases, the District will consult with the student’s physician and will develop appropriate accommodations in conjunction with the family and school team.
  • Students will have an assigned seat that is approximately six feet (to the maximum extent possible) from their neighbor as per the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance.
  • Families will be required not to send students to school if there are any signs of illness.
  • Students will spend the majority of their time in classrooms to minimize time standing in lines and minimize traffic in common spaces.
  • Students will be guided to walk on the right side of the hallway as directed by signage.
  • Students will be assigned a specific bathroom for their use for each class and bathrooms will be limited to a particular number of users at any given time.
  • Students will eat lunch on marked spaces in the Commons and outside in order to maintain six feet of distance.


What is the daily schedule for the In-Person Hybrid model for a typical 5 day week?


Monday/Thursday: Group 1

Tuesday/Friday: Group 2

Wednesday: All students are asynchronous on-line. No in-person instruction.


Will my student be able to receive a school lunch and/or breakfast?

Students will have a lunch break each day they are on campus. Each lunch space is large enough to allow 35 sq. ft. of space between students and can be disinfected properly between lunches. We will continue to provide a free lunch and/or breakfast for those who choose to take advantage of this opportunity. Nutrition Services will post a limited menu closer to the start date of In-Person Hybrid school. Students will have the opportunity to take a free breakfast home each day for the following morning as well as a free lunch for the days they will not be on campus.


Will I be allowed into the building?

Only “essential” personnel are allowed inside the building. This means that parents/guardians and volunteers will not be allowed into the building unless there is a need to pick up a student for illness, emergency, or another pre-arranged event.


How will the students coming onsite each day be determined?

The District has a complex algorithm that includes households. However, there are also other factors that determine the cohorts.


What will arrival look like?

Students will enter the school through the main entrance, per usual. However, we will have all entrance doors open to create three lines of students. Upon entry, a staff member will visually screen each student, direct them to either wash their hands or use hand sanitizer, and then have the student go to their assigned class. Only students and staff will be allowed into the building, and masks will be required.


The building will not open to students until 8am. Zero period classes or before-school practices must remain in their classes/gyms with their coach until 8am. Students can pick up a breakfast, but then must go directly to 1st period where they will be supervised by their 1st period teacher from 8-8:30.


What will dismissal look like?

Students will exit the school through the main entrance. We ask that parents not congregate on school grounds.


Can my student use their locker?

Lockers will not be available to students, as accessing them requires students to be in close proximity to one another. Instead, students may bring their backpacks with them to each of their classes.

Lockers ARE accessible for athletes after school.


What if my student becomes sick or is injured during school?

If your student is injured while at school, the normal procedures will be employed – first aid applied and parent or 911 called when warranted. As always, we will provide the best care for your student. If your child exhibits symptoms of illness, the office will be called and a specific staff member will follow the protocols outlined in the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance. One of the primary features of this protocol is that an isolation room has been established in our Commons area where any student who is displaying symptoms of COVID-19 will remain until a parent/guardian collects them.


How will I know if my child has been exposed to COVID-19?

The Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance has strict guidelines regarding maintaining contact tracing logs. The guidance requires that any time an individual spends more than 15 minutes with another person within 6 feet, they need to be recorded on the contact tracing log. The typical exposure for the vast majority of our students will be with the other students in their classes and the staff members assigned to that class. A major supplement to the Ready Schools, Safe Learners document is a protocol list for specific COVID-19 scenarios. This is the tool that the school will use to determine the appropriate response.


What happens if my child and/or their class has to quarantine?

All quarantines will be addressed on a case-by-case basis, relying on direction from the local public health authority and the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance. Students who are out on quarantine will be provided with comprehensive distance learning options per the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance, until they are able to return to school.


What items should my child bring to school?

Students may bring a coat, a backpack, a water bottle, lunch, and their school issued chromebook and charger. Students should also bring a mask and any other school supplies needed (binder, paper, pencils, etc.).


Will items be shared with other students?

Students will have their own supplies that will stay in their backpacks. If equipment is used for multiple groups of students, it will be sanitized between each group. As much as possible, we will designate separate equipment for each group of students.


What will the sanitation of classrooms, restrooms, lunch areas, and school look like, in general?

Throughout the day staff members will wipe down frequently used touch points in all areas of the school. Students will wipe their desks at the start of each period as well. At the end of each day, after students and staff have left, the building will be thoroughly sanitized as per Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidelines.


What will PE look like in a hybrid instructional model?

Locker rooms will not be available for student use during hybrid. Students participating in PE classes should plan to come to class wearing clothes appropriate for athletic activities, and expect to remain in those clothes for the rest of the day. Students are encouraged to bring a towel to wipe off with.


The next monthly virtual Zoom Principal's Coffee (bring your own coffee!) is on Friday, April 9th at 9:30am. This meeting will occur on the second Friday of each month through May. The Principal's Coffee is an informal opportunity to hear school updates and to ask general questions regarding MHS. These meetings will also be recorded and uploaded to Youtube for viewing after. Hope to see you there!

forecasting

The time has come to begin the forecasting process for current 9th through 11th graders!


Forecasting is when students decide which courses they will take next year. It is imperative that students give careful thought to course selections, as there will be very little chance to make changes once the process is finalized. Our staffing and course offerings for next year, including how many sections of each course will be offered and when, are determined by the courses for which students forecast.


Counselors will be available with drop-in Question and Answer sessions via Zoom beginning on April 1st and continuing through April 9th during lunch from 11:00 to 12:00, with the exception of Wednesday, April 7th. Here is the Zoom link: Lunch Q&A Sessions

Students can also contact their counselor via email.


Specific subject-area departments will also offer Question and Answer sessions via Zoom on Wednesday, April 7th. Here are the Zoom links:.


More information can be found in the 2021/22 Program Planning Guide: https://mountainside.beaverton.k12.or.us/academics/academic-program-guide

ib diploma programme

IBDP forecasting information for rising juniors & seniors

Forecasting is upon us and many MAV 10th graders are considering the IB Diploma and whether to take a few IB classes or to go for the full IB DIploma in their junior and seniors years.


Current 10th grade students can attend IBDP info sessions with IBDP Coordinator, Brooke Mayo, during Advisory periods in order to create a 2-year Diploma Plan if interested in the Full IB Diploma. Students should look at the MHS Class of 2023 Canvas Page for details.


Current 11th grade students are encouraged to forecast for the 2nd year of their current IBDP courses and/or a 1-year IBDP course (IB Design Tech, IB Economics, IB Environmental Systems and Societies, IB World Religions).


Why IB?

The most important reason we offer the IB Program to students is that we believe the structure of the IB curriculum encourages deep thinking and strong academic skills that prepare them for lifelong learning. Additionally, juniors and seniors who sit for IBDP exams in May 2022 may earn college credits with the required exam score of 4+ for Oregon public Universities/Colleges. Students can take IBDP classes and not sit for the IB exam. Colleges/universities will look favorably at the presence of IBDP classes on the transcript, especially over the two years. Colleges/universities want to see students with a full and challenging course load during the senior year.


What about current 8th & 9th grade students who are curious about the IB DP program?

Here is the IB Diploma Program Screencast to explain and answer questions about the program. We look forward to conducting this presentation in person next year. If you have further questions about the IB Diploma Program, please email IB Coordinator Brooke Mayo at brooke_mayo@beaverton.k12.or.us

parking permits for the 21-22 school year

There will be no parking permits issued for the remainder of the 2021 school year. We should have plenty of parking during Hybrid.


Here is the current plan for the 21-22 school year:


The process for obtaining a parking permit for the 2021-2022 school year will be completed through a lottery system. The first lottery will be for the Senior Class of 2022 ONLY as there are limited spots available.


  • First round applications will open starting Monday, June 7th.
  • Applications close on Wednesday, June 16th at 3:00pm.
  • If we have under our number of student spaces, all valid applicants will have a spot. If we are over our allotment, a drawing will occur on Monday, June 21st.
  • Applicants selected will be notified by MHS over the summer.
  • All fines and fees must be cleared by August 13, 2021.
  • In the event an applicant has not met the requirements, the student's application will be removed and a new name will be selected from the applicant pool.


A completed application must contain the following:


  • All fines and fees cleared.
  • A valid driver's license



In the event there are permits still available after the June Senior Lottery, a second lottery will be held in the Fall. This lottery will be open to all Junior (Class of 2023) and Senior (Class of 2022) students. Applications for available permits will be available the first week of school in the main office.

graduation

The District will make a determination on May 21st as to what Graduation will look like at all of the BSD high schools. Plan A is Graduation in the stadium with limited attendance and streaming of ceremony. Plan B is a drive-thru Graduation similar to last year. Graduation will be on Sunday, June 13th at 1:00pm.


Attention Seniors, Jostens will be on site distributing cap and gowns, as well as other ordered regalia on Thursday, April 29th and Friday, April 30th during both lunches. Students who are at home doing Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL), can pick up their order on the same days in a drive-thru pick up in the student parking lot. Josten's staff will be set up at the end of the band hall ready to serve students in school and the drive-thru during the lunch periods. Please ensure all people in your car are wearing masks if you go through the drive-thru. Drive-thru pick up is only available between 10:30am and 1:00pm on both days.

bsd student surveys


Each year the District surveys students, staff, and parents to gather information for planning, program evaluation, and assessment of progress on the District's Strategic Plan.


The student survey takes about 20 minutes during the regular school day. The data gathered from the survey are anonymous; your child will not put his/her name or other identifying information on the survey. Like other surveys, results will be presented only about groups. No individual data will be reported.


Student surveys of middle and high schools include three optional questions for students to identify their gender, ethnicity / race, and sexual orientation. These questions allow for additional levels of analysis of questions on inclusion, safety and bullying.


Your child may skip questions or stop filling out the survey at any time. Refusing to participate or withdrawing from the survey does not affect your child's grades or class standing in any way.

Encuesta Anual de Estudiantes

Cada año, el distrito lleva a cabo encuestas para los estudiantes y el personal con el fin de obtener información para la planificación y la evaluación del programa así como del progreso del Plan Estratégico del Distrito.



La encuesta de estudiantes toma aproximadamente 20 minutos durante el día escolar. La información que obtengamos de la encuesta es anónima; su hijo no incluirá su nombre o cualquier información de identificación en la encuesta. Al igual que otras encuestas, los resultados que se presentan son sólo acerca de los grupos. No se proporcionará información de su estudiante.


Las encuestas del estudiante de las escuelas de secundaria y preparatoria incluyeron tres preguntas opcionales para los estudiantes identificar su género, grupo étnico/raza, e inclinación sexual. Estas preguntas permiten niveles de análisis adicionales en cuanto a la inclusión, la seguridad y la intimidación.


Su hijo puede no contestar las preguntas o dejar de contestar la encuesta en cualquier momento. El negarse a participar en la encuesta o no terminar de contestarla, no afecta las calificaciones o rango de su hijo. Si usted o su hijo no quieren participar, su hijo puede leer o hacer alguna otra actividad, mientras que sus compañeros de clase completan la encuesta.


Una copia en blanco de la encuesta, está disponible en la escuela de su hijo y se encuentra publicada en
