Good evening BHS Parents, Guardians and Students,
This message is to inform you of a new daily schedule at BHS due to pending legislation that will likely bring our students back to school 5-days per week. At this time, we are not sure when the 5-day per week legislation will take effect, nor are we aware of the date for a return to five days of instruction. However, we are committed to taking steps now that will make this transition, whenever it does take place, as smooth as possible for all of you.
Therefore, beginning on Monday, March 1st, BHS will transition to a model that involves 4 consecutive days of live instruction per week for all students. Here is how that will look on a weekly basis:
A track students will attend in-person on Mondays and Tuesdays as normal. However, A track students will continue to follow our bell schedule and attend each of their classes through Google Meet on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
B track students will attend in-person on Wednesdays and Thursdays as normal. However, B track students will continue to follow our bell schedule and attend each of their classes through Google Meet on Mondays and Tuesdays.
C and D track students will follow our bell schedule and attend each of their classes through Google Meet on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
E track (asynchronous students) will not change their schedules.
Fridays will continue to be an at-home learning day for all tracks until we transition to a five-day a week schedule.
Attendance on Mondays-Thursdays will be determined by whether or not a student attended through their assigned track (either in-person or via Google Meet).
Attendance on Fridays will be handled the same way we have previously for at-home learning days.
Please note that we will continue with this schedule in place until we begin 5-day per week classes. The date for this transition has not been determined at this time. However, we will communicate this date to everyone when we know it for sure! Please be aware that when we do return to 5-day per week instruction, A and B track students will attend all five days in-person while C and D track students will attend all 5-days virtually through Google Meet. There will be no change for E-track, or asynchronous, students.
We realize that these changes will require students that have chosen to work on their "at-home learning days" to make adjustments to their work schedules with their employers. Knowing this information now will allow for these necessary adjustments to be communicated in advance. This is one of the many reasons why we wanted to make everyone aware of this change at least two weeks in advance. Please contact Michael Belk, principal of BHS, if you have any questions. The easiest mode of contact is via email at: email@example.com.
