Words from our Principal

BVM Families,

Our semester is off to a great start! Students are meeting new friends, settling into their routines, and finding their place at BVM.

COVID-19 cases are our new reality this year. You have received some letters from me informing you of cases on campus, but our students continue to remain safe, wear masks, and wash and sanitize their hands, which is helping us prevent the spread of COVID-19 at BVM.

THANK YOU to all of the parents who keep your students home when they are sick and notify us. This helps us quickly assess the situation and communicate with everyone impacted. If your student has any COVID-like symptoms, please keep them home and call our nurse. Doing this is for the protection of our entire BVM community and it is everyone's responsibility.

Progress reports will be issued on Friday September 3rd. This is the first opportunity for you to see how your students are doing in their classes. If you want current information, please log in to Jupiter grades to check grades and then take advantage of our tutoring programs and Saturday Scholars invitations if it is necessary. Please note, all athletes must meet athletic eligibility requirements in order to continue to play sports. A minimum 2.0 GPA is required for BVM Athletics.

Thank you all for your continued support!

BVM Families,

Please follow all traffic and safety rules as you drop off and pick up your children from school.

1.Students should only cross the street at crosswalks

2. Do not stop in the bus loading zone

3. Do not use the parking lots of our neighboring businesses for drop off and pick up

4. PLEASE do not run any red lights.

Your time is important, but not as important as a child's life. BVM administration is out in the parking lots and streets every day to ensure the safety of our students. Please do your part to make sure our kids are safe.

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.
