COVID-19 BSSD April Update

May 1, 2020

Dear BSSD Families,

District staff continues to prepare for the summer to the best of our ability. Virtual summer school will be offered from June 8-July 31 for students in grades 6-12. Course guides and registration information was sent via email Thursday evening. In-person summer school enrichment programming will be provided for students K-12 from July 20-31. Please check your email in the coming days for more information on summer school.

It is our goal to open Prime Time Summer Journey as soon as possible, but realistically operation may not begin until sometime in July. We know that families count on us for this critical service, and we will continue to update you as information becomes available.

Starting next week, the meal service pick up and drop off will not operate on Fridays, beginning May 8. Extra food will be distributed every Thursday to include lunch for Friday and breakfast for Saturday. Meal pick up and drop off locations will continue through Thursday, May 21. The district still plans to operate the summer food program beginning in June. More information will follow.

Don’t forget to visit our website to find weekly lunch pick up and drop off locations, along with tech tips. Check out this page for more information on community resources available during the pandemic. And, don’t forget to follow @BSSDNews on Facebook and Twitter.

Stay well,

Dear BSSD Families,

The only thing certain right now is change, but despite that, we continue to develop plans for the summer. We know that many students and families count on us for childcare and education during the summer break. You can expect more information regarding summer school and Prime Time next Friday.

The Class of 2020 has been asked to save the weekends of July 18-19 and July 25-26 for a rescheduled graduation ceremony. We hope that by the middle of July, we will be able to gather in large groups, and depending on the directives from our state and local government agencies, we will host graduation ceremonies. Additionally, the district’s Public Relations team is collecting senior photos to be used for publication in the summer BluePrint magazine. Please help us celebrate the Class of 2020 by emailing JPEG files to info@bssd.net.

We cannot thank you enough for your commitment and patience as we all do our best to educate our students from home. Don’t forget to visit our website for more information on weekly lunch pick up and drop off, along with tech tips.
