Ms. Nicole Poletto
Hey BH Fam!
I am so excited that we are starting the 2020-2021 school year! Here are some things you need to know for the beginning of the year.
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL is MONDAY, AUGUST 31, 2020
o We are going to start the school year using VIRTUAL LEARNING at home using our new chrome books. However, it will be VERY DIFFERENT than it was in the Spring.
o You will be expected to BE ONLINE and attend all of your classes each day, like you would if we were in the building. You will do this by clicking the link each of your teachers gives you. (Just like you did with me last Spring.)
o You will have LIVE classes EVERY DAY for ALL SUBJECTS from 8:00 AM-1:00 PM. This is called “SYNCHRONOUS” learning because we will be “in sync” with each other, all of us working together at the same time.
o You will have INDEPENDENT learning EVERY DAY from 1:00-3:00 PM. This is called “ASYNCHRONOUS” learning because you will be working on your own to complete classwork and homework that was assigned during your classes earlier in the day.
o Your teachers will be available EVERY DAY from 1:00-3:00 PM to help you with your assignments or to catch you up on any work you may have. However, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to reach out to your teachers if you need help.
o EVERY STUDENT will need to come to BHMS to pick up a MATH TEXTBOOK.
o You must WEAR a MASK and practice social distancing during pick up.
o Pick up Dates/Times:
Monday August 31 1:00-3:00 PM
Tuesday, September 1 1:00-3:00 PM
Wednesday, September 2 1:00-3:00 PM
Thursday, September 3 1:00-3:00 PM
o At that time, students will be directed to pick up any additional materials that they will need to begin the school year (art supplies, world language books, etc…)
o We will also have small notebooks and pencils for families that need them.
