Happy Holidays from everyone at BG! It is hard to believe the holiday season is upon us. While this year, things might be a bit different than holidays of the past, please take some time to share the season safely with your loved ones.
After four years of hard work and construction, the BG Capital Improvement Project is complete! The final pieces to be completed were the front doors of the Jr-Sr HS and the side entrances to the business office and the district office. Once we have moved beyond the restrictions of the COVID pandemic, we look forward to showing off all the improvements.
I am pleased to announce we are in the second quarter of the school year. On Monday, November 9th, we had 51 students return to campus to participate in the “hybrid model.” These were students who had originally selected the fully virtual option in the beginning of the school year. We are excited to have them back on campus. Every 10 weeks during the school year, the district will assess if we are able to bring more students back to campus, and possibly bring students back more frequently. The biggest limiting factor in this is our limit on available space to make sure we are following the socially distancing guidelines. Our BG custodial staff is doing an outstanding job at keeping our buildings clean and safe for our students and staff. A huge thank you to all of them!
We are continuing to discuss our ability to deliver meals to students’ homes like we did up until November 4th. We will continue to see if we can return to meal delivery, but for the months of November and December curbside pick-up will continue.
Please remember that it is important to complete the student health screen every morning for each student. We are continuing to streamline this process to make it as easy and fast as possible for parents and students. Thank you to all our families for your flexibility during these difficult COVID times.
My virtual “coffees with the community” will continue throughout the year. I am pleased to have had 120 participants in my coffee in late September. I feel these are a great way to keep in communication with the BG community.
Please have a safe holiday season. As always, if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me at school at 967-6321, email me at [email protected]
