Message from the Principal

Dear BBES Families, 

Here are a few reminders and updates for our in-person families:
 
Arrival and Dismissal Times Drop-off: Gr 2- 8:45, Gr 1- 8:55, Gr K- 9:05 Pick-up: Gr 2- 2:45, Gr 1- 2:55, Gr K- 3:05
 
Drop-off REMINDERS:
  • Please do not line-up earlier than the times noted above for drop-off as it creates a back-up onto Washington Street
  • Use the entire RED ZONE to drop-off children; pull all the way up no matter which door your child uses to enter the building
  • Multiple cars should be unloading in the RED ZONE at the same time
  • Have children with masks on and ready to exit the vehicle on the passenger side when you stop in the RED ZONE OR you may park and walk your child to the RED ZONE

Bus Reminders/Updates:

  • In the morning, students should be waiting OUTSIDE for their bus, not waiting inside their home
  • In the afternoon, an adult should be waiting OUTSIDE for the bus to arrive
  • Students will not be marked late in the morning due to their bus's arrival time

General Reminders/Updates:

  • If a student or staff member is feeling ill (or has any of the symptoms noted under the health office section below), they should stay home
  • The Board of Health has recommended that we no longer quarantine entire classes at the elementary level when there is a positive case of COVID in a classroom since there has been minimal evidence of school-based spread of the virus. Therefore, going forward, ONLY students and staff who were within 6-feet of an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 (with or without a mask on) for 15 cumulative minutes will be considered close contacts and will need to quarantine
  • If individual students are quarantined, teachers will provide packets of make-up work instead of virtual meetings or live streaming
2021-2022 Class Placement:
Although the school is responsible for final placement, you are invited to provide input regarding your child's learning style, learning needs, and the type of environment in which you believe your child will be most successful. If your child is entering Grade 3 at Woodsdale Elementary School in the fall, you may complete the BBES form and we will forward your input to WES. Please click the link below to share your input:
All forms must be received no later than Friday, April 30, 2021. Even if you have provided information to the school in the past or have discussed your thoughts with the classroom teacher, it is important that you fill this form out each year. As you complete this form, please understand that we cannot honor requests for specific teachers.

Be well ~ Dr. Basta
