A Letter to Seniors from Mr. Ryan

May 12, 2020

To our BG Seniors and their families:

This has been a strange and difficult year for all of you. Certainly, this is not the ending to your senior year and high school career that anyone could have ever imagined or wanted.

I am writing to let all of you know that we will be celebrating each of you, and we will be having a graduation ceremony. While this may not be the traditional ceremony held on the front lawn of the Jr-Sr High School, we will not let you leave these halls without the pomp and circumstance each of you deserves.

Many of you have reached out to me with great ideas for graduation. The graduation committee has been hard at work to ensure we will be celebrating. Please know we have to take our guidance on graduation from our Governor, the Department of Health, and the school’s legal team.

As soon as we have a plan mapped out, you will all be the first to know! Stay safe and healthy.

Timothy R. Ryan

Superintendent of Schools

COVID 19 - Corona Virus Update

Dear Parent/Guardian

While the Bainbridge-Guilford CSD does not have a confirmed case of COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) in our schools, we are aware of concerns in the state about the spread of this relatively new virus. 

The district is closely monitoring this changing situation and following guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), the Chenango County Department of Health and the New York State Education Department.
 
Based on recent reports, COVID-19 is not actively circulating in New York State at this time. If the district becomes aware that a student or staff member is diagnosed with COVID-19, it will immediately notify staff and parents/guardians. If a student or staff member shows respiratory symptoms, we will follow our current practices for handling respiratory illnesses, subject to any additional guidance forthcoming. 
 
The district has infectious disease protocols in place and has been taking steps, such as cleaning and disinfecting throughout its schools, to minimize the spread of viruses and a variety of other illnesses. There are a number of steps that students, staff and community members can take to minimize the spread of all respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19, according to the state Department of Health:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer. Heavily soiled hands should be washed. 
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, than throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
 
If you or a family member begin showing symptoms of a respiratory disease and suspect it may be COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider. Before going to your healthcare provider’s office, inform them that a case of COVID-19 is suspected, and follow their advice. 
 
Local health departments will contact school if a suspected or known COVID-19 case emerges. The district is prepared to work with any affected families.
 
In addition, New York has established a Novel Coronavirus Hotline, which can provide additional information. Call 1-888-364-3065 with questions or concerns about travel and symptoms. The district will continue to share information as it becomes available. 
 
Please know that, as always, the health and safety of our students and staff is our highest priority, and we will remain vigilant in our efforts to help prevent the spread of this illness.
 
Sincerely,
Timothy R. Ryan
Superintendent of Schools

Next Generation Standards for Student ELA and Math Learning

Click HERE for more parent information! 

The Next Generation Learning Standards are the educational goals for all of New York State’s students from prekindergarten through grade 12 in English Language Arts and Mathematics. The standards were revised to ensure they are appropriate for students’ grade levels and reflect what students should know and be able to do in math and ELA. 

Full implementation of the NYS Next Generation Learning Standards begins during the 2020-2021 school year for prekindergarten through grade 8. The implementation timeline can be found at http://www.nysed.gov/curriculuminstruction/next-generation-learningstandards-and-assessment-implementationtimeline. You can learn more about the Next Generation ELA and Mathematics Learning Standards by talking to your child’s teacher or visiting www.nysed.gov/next-generationlearning-standards.

Congratulations to Hannah Sprow -- BG Akshar All-Star!

Senator Fred Akshar continues with his district-wide “Akshar's All-Stars” student recognition program on Thursday by recognizing B-G Senior Hannah Sprow. Each month, Senator Akshar recognizes local students selected by their school districts in the 52nd Senate District who have shown great leadership, compassion, school spirit or improvement amongst their peers.

Congratulations Hannah!

Change for Jr.-Sr. High School Pick-Up of Students at Dismissal

Due to severe traffic congestion and pedestrian safety, picking students up on Juliand Street will no longer be permitted. Students must be picked up at the Soccer Field Parking Lot behind the Jr-Sr High School. This parking lot can be accessed via Terrace Hill Road off of State Rt. 206 or Pearl Street to Tyler Street which becomes Prospect Street, then left on to Jericho Road and then a right turn into the parking lot. Your patience and understanding with this procedural change is greatly appreciated and we thank you in advance for your cooperation. Please call Kyle Fuller, Head Bus Driver, at 967-6324 with any questions you might have. 

SHOP AT THE BOBCAT BOUTIQUE!

The high school is excited and proud to announce that it now has our own clothing store for students! Put away those Kohl’s discount coupons, because everything in here is free! It is all gently used, and washed by volunteer staff and students. 

Here at BG we believe in recycling, and caring for each other, and giving back to the community! It’s the Bobcat Way, and The Bobcat Boutique Clothes Closet does all of that!! 

The Closet will be open every day during school hours. Students can visit it by asking for a pass during study hall, breakfast or lunch. It is located in the tech building, upstairs, next to the study hall classroom. There will be signs. 

Every student is welcome to shop!

Student Attendance Auto Call

In our continued effort to guarantee your child’s safety, the Bainbridge Guilford Central School District will continue the automated attendance calling system. This call will go out to all students that have been marked “unexcused” from when the morning attendance was taken. If you receive such a call, please call the school to notify us of your child’s whereabouts.

If you know in advance that your child will be out of school, please notify the approriate attendance office ahead of time and this will prevent the automated call. 
 
Attendance Offices: 
Jr-Sr High School - Cynthia Judd - 967-6368
Greenlawn Elementary - Kelly Cirigliano -  967-6330
