Word From The Woods
Bishop Woods School Newsletter - 2.14.21
Greetings Bishop Woods Families,
Happy Valentine's Day to all of you! Thank you for all of the love and support you have shown through these difficult times.
This week is February break! Please note that our break is shortened this year. There will be no classes on Monday, February 15th, in honor of President's Day and Susan B. Anthony Day, or on Tuesday, February 16th. We will resume our hybrid schedule on Wednesday, February 17th. (Remember that every Wednesday all students are full remote, and should log in to homeroom at 8:45am.)
If you have not done so already, please check out the district’s video that is part of the #NHPSWeConnect campaign! Our Bishop Woods students and staff are represented throughout this presentation!

Please note that if you travel outside of the country or if you visit any state other than New York, New Jersey, or Rhode Island, you must self-quarantine for 10 days upon return to CT, or select the Covid testing alternative.

Pie & Cookie Dough Fundraiser
To support Bishop Woods, we are selling Easter pies and goodies! This fundraiser runs from February 5th-February 19th. All items are $18. Order forms and payments must be submitted by February 19th. Frozen pies and cookie dough will be delivered on Wednesday, March 24th in the morning and early afternoon. Please mark this date on your calendar, as the order will need to be picked up at this time as we don't have freezer space to store them.
Below, you can find the order forms and fliers for any additional information! Please print a copy of the order form. Drop off the order form and payments to Mrs. Giammattei at school any day between now and February 19th (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday's between 8:30 and 3PM). Order forms are available at school as well if you would like to pick one up.
The student or staff member that brings in the most money will win a prize!

Community Learning Hubs
Community Learning Hubs are safe spaces for children to go during the school day for supervised distance learning with high-speed internet access, social support, and enrichment, in a small cohort of no more than ten children. Children eligible to attend a Hub must be New Haven residents in 1st through 9th grades, registered for the New Haven Public Schools, and demonstrate high need. Space is extremely limited and families with the greatest need will receive priority, so if you are interested, apply ASAP. There is no cost to families.
