2020-2021 Archived School Updates **1/15/2021** Please follow the link HERE to access the Letter from the Principal for 1/15/2021, and then continue to read the important information provided below. Thank you. ------------------------------ Jan. 19th, 2021 is right around the corner, and we are so excited to see all the kids back at BES. We have a few important updates for you all as we enter back into the building. Please read sections below. ------------------------------ Due to scheduling and the time it takes to get meals ready, Café Services is asking that families/children order breakfasts and lunches a day in advance until further notice. Teachers will take breakfast and lunch counts in the mornings when the children arrive at school, as they have in the past, and will let the kids know what is for breakfast and lunch the following day. Students will need to order at that time whether or not they would like lunch for the following day. Any students signed up for the Breakfast Before the Bell Program will automatically be signed up for breakfast each day. We are asking, for the first day of in-house learning only, that parents/guardians please visit the link here to complete the order form for breakfast and lunch for the first day of in-house learning, Jan. 19th, 2021. This will collect who needs breakfast and lunch for our first day back. Meal descriptions for 1/19 are on the form, and the monthly calendar with menu details will be posted on the website and send home as soon as we get that information in. If you still need to opt your child out of the Breakfast Before the Bell Program, please visit the link here. Both of these forms, the Breakfast/Lunch Sign Up as well as the Opt Out Form, are due by Sunday, Jan. 17th at 6:00PM, in which submissions will no longer be taken and sign up/opt out will be closed. Please call the school Tuesday with any questions about the Breakfast Before the Bell Program if needed. No breakfasts/lunches will be able to be prepared last minute on 1/19/2021. We appreciate your understanding during these times. Thank you. ------------------------------- BES is asking that parents/guardians send ALL SCHOOL MATERIALS provided while Remote Learning BACK to school with your child on Tuesday, Jan. 19th, 2021. Because so many pieces of school supplies were lent out to families during Remote Learning, we have very little to spare as far as supplies go here at the school. It is incredibly important that they bring back those supplies, including all of their technology pieces (tablets, computers, and all charging cords), to school on Tuesday. All of us here at BES thank you in advance! -------------------------------

**11/12/2020** Please CLICK HERE to view the 11/12/2020 Letter from the Principal. **11/10/2020** BES Families, the Board made the difficult and unanimous decision tonight to transition to remote learning until January 19, 2021. With the rising number of cases in the North Country, a positive Covid case at BES and the holidays approaching, it was determined that in order to keep our students and staff safe, this decision needed to be made. Free meals will be available beginning on Monday, November 16 for pick up at BES. If you are interested in getting meals, please contact Nicole Kerstetter at firstname.lastname@example.org Friday. You will get more information by the end of this week.
**11/9/2020** BES families, this is an update to let families know that we have a positive adult case of COVID-19 in the building and will be going remote learning, starting tomorrow, November 10th, for the remainder of the week and possibly next week. Families with students in grades 3-6 can pick up their devices tomorrow at 10AM to 3PM. Families with students in grades PK-2 can pick up their devices and materials from 1PM to 3PM. Device pick up will be at the front of the building. Remote teaching will begin Thursday, November 12th once everyone has had a chance to get their devices. Please be on the lookout for messages from teachers, support staff, and specialists about any important information regarding remote work. If your child has had any significant contact with this person, Tammy Reardon, school nurse, will contact you by 4pm today.
