Words from our Principal

BVM Families,

It's time for our Back to School Night! You will be receiving information this week about how to log in to our back to School Night on August 12th via Zoom from the comfort of your homes. The meeting begins at 5:00pm and class visitations will finish by 7:45pm. Please join us for a chance to meet your students' teachers and receive information about their classes.

Our after school and lunch time tutoring begins this week. Please see the schedules below or visit our BVM website for details. This is the perfect opportunity for students to catch up and get help. We will also be offering our first Saturday Scholars on August 14th from 8:00am-12:00pm. Any student is welcome to attend to get support or have a quiet place to work.

We had over 90 parents join us for our first Coffee with the Principal! I hope the information you received was valuable. It was great to have a chance to chat with many of you. We will have our next meeting on August 26th from 10:00-11:00am and it will be virtual.

I hope your students are enjoying the return to school. We are making every effort to ensure their safety while on campus. COVID is out there in the world and if it creeps in to BVM, as long as we consistently follow our safety protocols, we can continue to offer in person instruction for our students while prioritizing their safety and the safety of our staff.

Thank you for your partnership and support.

It's good to be back

We are all so happy and excited to start the school year! It is awesome to be able to welcome our students back on campus and slowly return to a sense of normality. Wishing everyone a successful school year!

Off Campus Permits

If you are planning to take your student out of school for an appointment or personal reason,

please be aware that we do not give off campus permits during student lunches (12:06-1:16 on regular days and 11:40-12:10 on minimum days) or after 2:45 pm.

Our campus assistants are critical to the supervision and safety of this campus and they need to focus on student safety during those times.

Thank you for your understanding.

Face Covering and Social Distancing Protocols

While we are still requesting social distancing be respected whenever possible on campus, CDPH has removed minimum social distancing requirements generally and specifically in classrooms and buses.

As is required by OSHA and/or California Department of Public Health, the SUHSD will maintain the requirement for all students and employees to wear face coverings indoors on all school sites absent a medical exemption cleared through the District. Similarly, all visitors to District facilities will be required to wear masks absent exemptions.

When outdoors, staff, visitors and students may decide not to wear a mask, but are still asked to respect social distancing. In large gatherings outdoors, staff, students and volunteers will be encouraged to wear masks.
