Instead of snow days, BSD will use remote learning days.
One positive from our work to prepare for 3 pathways is creating a plan to avoid snow days whenever possible by using remote learning days on days of inclement weather. Faculty and staff are prepared to do remote learning days for all students on days we used to have to call snow days. We are asking all families to prepare as well by having back up plans for when all students will do remote learning days.
An alert will be sent either the day before or the morning when a remote learning day will be used in the event of inclement weather. Students will receive an email from their teachers first thing on the remote learning day with notification of virtual meetings and learning activities. School lunch will also be available and sent home the day before if ample notification or directions will be shared that day when and where to pick up meals.
This plan should allow us to stay to the 2020-2021 calendar as planned. Thank you for your support as we plan for the winter months ahead.
