THEY’RE BACK!

BMS FEBRUARY 2021 REOPENING - FIRST DAY

Students have returned to District 2 classrooms!

After three and a half months of only remote instruction and activities, students and teachers returned to BSD2 schools on a limited basis on Tuesday, February 9. 

Positive local COVID-19 infection trends allowed the District to return to its hybrid instructional model, which it first implemented for two weeks in mid-October. Roughly 45 percent of BSD2 students chose to return to in-person instruction under this plan, while around 55 percent opted to remain remote.

In order to comply with health department social distancing requirements, hybrid students attend school in-person on a rotation of two days per week for three hours a day, with a full day of remote learning each Monday. They are dismissed mid-day with a grab-and-go lunch, and then resume their learning remotely from home in the afternoon.

Each day students attend school in person, their parents must certify that the students are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Classrooms are configured to provide for appropriate social distancing to the greatest extent possible, and students and staff must wear face coverings at all times while in their schools.
