RMS and BHS will be moving to the Hybrid Mode, an every other day learning mode. Dates for the switch from remote to hybrid for RMS and BHS students have been determined to allow for time to plan the details and to align with the beginning of a new grading period. Crimson and gold designations are still determined by last name: (A-L) labeled as crimson and (M-Z) labeled gold. You can see the Crimson/Gold designation for your student on the home page in PowerSchool.

  • BHS students will begin hybrid on Monday, October 19th which is a Gold day and the first day of the second term.
  • RMS students will begin hybrid on Monday, November 16th which is a Crimson day and the first day of the second trimester. 
  • In the weeks preceding the switch to hybrid, the buildings will determine a schedule to bring in all grade levels at RMS and freshmen at BHS to become acclimated with the building and experience in-person learning in this environment.

We have updated the Academic Calendar to reflect the decision to proceed with caution based on local health conditions. At this time, we believe elementary schools will continue with the hybrid Crimson/Gold schedule and RMS and BHS will add small groups of students to their in-person population. Elementary students are adjusting well to the hybrid schedule and safety measures in schools which have put us in a position to be confident that this is still a successful mode for those students.

Now that school has started, will there be any changes to the plan? The Leadership team continues to meet weekly to monitor guidance, assess local conditions, and make changes to the plan as needed. At this time there are no changes. 

What is the plan for allowing additional students at the secondary level to access in-person learning? Both RMS and BHS are working on plans to allow priority groups of students to return. Return to school plans will be communicated directly to the families. BHS and RMS item pickup will be communicated this week. September 3rd and 4th are tentative dates.

We are one week away to the opening of the 2020-21 school year. Our schedules have been finalized, and PowerSchool is now open for families to view schedules and teachers. On Wednesday, August 19th, we will welcome everyone back to school in different ways:

  • On-site: Elementary Crimson students and other students in specialized programs 
  • Remote: All other students

August 5, 2020

Please note these recent changes to the Restore BPS101 plan:

  • Middle and high school students will start the year remotely and eventually, as conditions allow, evolve toward on-site learning (blended) opportunities for small groups of students.
  • Elementary students will attend in-person on alternating days (crimson and gold) for the foreseeable future.

Why the need for changes?

1. The complexity of creating on-site and remote schedules for students at the middle and high schools, especially given the back-to-school timeline.
2. Teacher feedback that some aspects need adjustment.

August 5, 2020: The Restore BPS101 plan was modified for middle and high school students to start remotely.

July 31, 2020: The plan for fall sports was released.
