Hello Sharks!

We hope you are off to a great start and that you've had no problems logging into your classes.  However, if you are running into trouble, here are some tips to help:

1.  Make sure students are using their Howard County issued Gmail Account to log in.  Personal Gmail accounts will not work.

2.  Teacher Google Meet Codes are listed on their Homepage.  Make sure students look there for codes.

3.  Need Support:  email Dr. Cockley at andrew_cockley@hcpss.org or Mrs. Verlich at hannah_verlich@hcpss.org.  

4.  Prefer to call someone?  We are in the office each day from 8am to 3pm.  Call 410-313-2580 and we will be here to help you!

Bonnie Branch Student Attendance Information
Bonnie Branch has a new process for parents and guardians to report their student's absences. Please send all absence notes to bbmsabsence@hcpss.org to ensure that your student's absence is excused and that they will have the opportunity to make up missed work. Please include both your child's name and your name in the email along with the reason for the absence. As a reminder, BBMS must receive a note within three days of your child's return to school. When emailing a note, you will receive an automated message to verify your email was received. Please do not send absence notes to your child's homeroom teacher.

If you have questions about your child's attendance, please use bbmsabsence@hcpss.org to submit those questions as well. We will research and respond in a timely manner.

Video Instruction Update

Students' active participation in synchronous (live) instruction sessions is critically important to effective learning. HCPSS does not allow video recordings of live instruction, because recorded sessions could hinder students' active class participation, violate privacy rights and accessibility requirements, and other factors. Find more information online.


Virtual Instruction Responsibilities, Expectations and Best Practices
A successful virtual instruction program for the 2020-2021 school year requires collaboration and shared responsibilities among students, educators and families.

Google Meet Expectations for Students and Parents/Guardians
To ensure a positive, productive and enjoyable learning experience for all participants, it is important that all students and parents/guardians adhere to these Google Meet Expectations, which include online behaviors for students and privacy guidelines for parents.
