Schedule for May 25-29

Dear BBMS Families,

Can you believe it?  Memorial Day is right around the corner!  We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy throughout this time.  Please reach out to us if you have any needs surrounding virtual schooling.  We know that it can be extremely hard juggling work, family and school responsibilities so please let us know how we can help you and your student(s).  This week we are about one half of the way through the fourth quarter; and teachers are contacting parents if students are falling behind.  We know this can be casued by a number of reasons, but we want to make sure you know how your student is doing and what they might need to do to earn a passing grade this marking period.  Please look for those teacher emails or phone calls.  We are here to help your student be successful!

Adjustments to Distance Learning Schedule: Week of May 25: Schools and offices will be closed on Monday, May 25, 2020 in observance of Memorial Day.  The following adjustments have been made to the distance learning schedules to accommodate this school closure:

  • The Period 4/4B Google Meet class check-in that is regularly scheduled for Monday afternoons will move to Friday May 29, 2020 from 8:00-8:45 or 9:00-9:45 a.m.  Teachers will communicate with students which of the given times will be used for the class check-in.
  • All class assignments will be posted by 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 26, 2020.  Assignments will not be due until Monday, June 1, 2020 at 9:00 a.m.

The regular distance learning weekly schedule will resume June 1, 2020.

We hope you have a great week BBMS!  Stay well - stay positive!

Go Sharks!

Dear BBMS Families,

***Technology Update*** - we are hearing from families that shipments did not arrive as scheduled by HCPSS on Friday.  If you have not received a device, please email me at  We will check your request and monitor the delivery.  We've notified our teachers that students may not have the ability to connect today and they are going to be very patient with students this week as you acquire the needed tools to be successful in online learning.  We are sorry that this is occurring and appreciate your patience during this time.
