Hello Parents and Caregivers, 

 

Welcome to November!  Daylight saving time ended this morning; remember to set clocks ahead one hour. We are well and truly in the thick of it now.  All of our students should be set with their schedules and have the proper technology.  If your student doesn't have the technology necessary, please have them reach out to RLD@bths.edu; they should be able to help.

 

Thank you for completing our Parent Survey. We need to have as many responses as possible by tomorrow, Monday, November 2nd. If you haven't done so already, please take a few minutes to complete it here.  The results will be included in next week's Tech Talk.   

 

As Mr. Newman mentioned in his October 28th  email, the DOE has announced that there will be only ONE opportunity to switch from Remote to Blended/Hybrid this year.  This is different from what the DOE had announced earlier.  Families that wish to switch can read more and complete the required survey here

 

Please feel free to reach out to us with your questions and concerns. We can be reached at papresident@bths.edu

   

Stay well, 

Lisa Sullivan and Cindy Kue
