Words from our Principal

Crusader Families,

BVM is off to a great start to the 2020 school year! Admittedly, we experienced tech issues and challenges that are unique to distance learning, but I assure you that our teachers and staff are working hard to make sure everything goes well for our students.

The 2020 Back to School Night and Title I parent Meeting that was originally scheduled for Thursday, August 20th at 5pm, will be postponed. This event will be virtual and will be rescheduled to Wednesday, August 26th beginning at 5pm. We hope to "see" you there. We are going to ask you to use your students' devices and/or login information to login to their classes to meet with teachers. More details forthcoming.

Please remember to submit your residency documentation and immunization records to BVM. We were given an extension, but it is time for those documents to be on file. This is required in order for your child to continue attending school. We have a drop box outside every day for your documents or you can email digital copies to our nurse and registrar.

I would like to thank our BVM families for your patience and collaboration as we begin the new school year. Everything is new and nothing is easy. I hope your students are finding their way through the technology and are experiencing success in their classes. Please reach out to us if there is anything we can do to support your family.
