GSA spotlight of the week

GSAs have also been grading quizzes, reporting scores, & also noting the patterns of learning so teachers can review particular concepts & skills that the class overall appear to have missed.

Free and Reduced Priced Lunch

If you think you might be eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, but haven’t yet signed up, please do so now! Here is the application: https://bsd405.org/services/nutrition-services/free-reduced/

Why the urgency? We expect government funds may be made available to families signed up for free or reduced-price lunches. These would be passed on to families to cover the cost of meals they have had to purchase while school has been conducted remotely.

If you aren’t sure if you have signed up for FRL, please call BSD’s Nutrition Services office at 425-456-4507 to confirm.

In person learning expansion – Safety and Health Conditions Review Team

School and district leaders have begun work on plans to expand in-person services for third through fifth grade students.  This includes resurveying family choices for hybrid or virtual learning last summer. We don’t yet have firm dates for return but do know that they will follow a similar half day AM/PM model as primary grades.  Our safety team meets weekly to review relevant local COVID data and building safety readiness.
