BSD UPDATED MASK MANDATE - BSD ENGAGEMENT: READY FOR LEARNING - BOND ISSUE: SECURE OUR FUTURE - 1:1 CHROMEBOOK INITIATIVE - BE INTERNET AWESOME (PARENT FILTERING TIPS) - PEANUT-FREE ZONE - SCHOOL-BASED MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAM
"BSD will continue to maintain the mask use protocol on all campuses through the end of the spring semester. While we understand both sides of the mask issue, after our research and feedback, we felt it is too disruptive to the educational process and local safety issues to change our procedures at this time. We appreciate everyone's efforts to finish strong with our continued mask protocols and the 3 W’s [Washing hands, Wearing masks, Watching distance] until the end of the school year. The BSD Board of Education will make recommendations for next school year at a later date. Onward Pioneers!" - Dr. Michael Hester
