Zoom Links Document for P/T Conferences 10/13 Good morning- Attached are the Zoom links for today's virtual parent/teacher conferences. If you were unable to meet with a teacher, I would encourage you to reach out to them to set up an alternate time. For those meeting with Mr. Hendrick (honors physics, physics, & Foundations of Comp. Science), I will send a Zoom link to those families tomorrow (10/14) for his conferences from 4pm-6pm. Please let me know if you have any questions and have a good Wednesday. Tom View File (PDF)

Links for Academic Parent/Teacher Conferences 10/13 Good morning- Happy Friday! We have all made it through another week and for that alone, we all deserve the weekend! Attached are the sign-up genius links for the virtual parent/teacher conferences happening from 1:30pm-3:30pm this upcoming Wednesday, October 13th. Please only sign up for one spot. If spots have filled up, please reach out to the teacher directly to see if you can set up an alternate time to meet. (The email naming convention is first letter of first name, last name @bsfa.org. For example, my email is taskey@bsfa.org.) Once we get closer to the 13th, I will pass along the Zoom links for the conferences. I just don't want everyone to get lost in all the documents we send. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions. Have a great weekend. Tom View File (PDF)
Progress Report Information Good afternoon parents- It is progress report time for the 1st quarter! Students will receive hard copies of their progress reports from their art departments tomorrow afternoon. Additionally, hard copies will also be sent via mail as well. Students' grades, attendance, and other information is primarily accessible through the district's learning management system (LMS) Infinite Campus, but at BSA we also use an additional LMS, Schoology for our art grades. We use Schoology for two reasons: 1) part-time arts teachers cannot use Infinite Campus in the same way as full-time teachers; 2) we are more seamlessly able to utilize our arts grading rubrics and provide that information to students and parents. Additionally, through an arrangement with the district, our arts grades in Schoology are synced to Infinite Campus, so they are visible in both systems. If you have not received log-in information for Infinite Campus, please let me know and I will send you the district-generated letter with the appropriate credentials. You should have received a Schoology Parent Access code from your child or child's art department. You can follow the attached instructions to access Schoology. If you already have a Schoology account from a previous year, you do not need to use the Parent Access Code and should be able to log in using the credentials from the previous year. We know there are a few platforms to juggle and we appreciate your patience and understanding. Do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Tom View File (PDF)
BSA Community Update Good afternoon, Please see the attached file for the health update. BSA View File (PDF)
Back-to-School Night Logistics 9/23 Good afternoon all- Thanks for your patience as we plan this evening's back-to-school night! We are so excited for everyone to join us. Attached is the guiding document. We will convene as a large group at 6pm for a welcome message from Principal Roz and some other administrative updates with the link at the bottom of this message. At 615pm, we will break and you can use the attached schedule to meet with the teachers of your children as well as art department heads by grade using the provided Zoom links. I would encourage you to speak with your child and get a clear sense of who their teachers are and what classes they have with those teachers. Remember that most of our teachers teach multiple classes so you will need to align what class your child is in with both the correct teacher and correct class. You will get a chance to hear the teachers speak in 15 minute blocks about their classes with a 5 minute "passing" period in between. For students who may have Ms. Providence and/or Ms. Tatum, they have both pre-recorded messages that you can listen to as well at any time. Links for Mr. Bandos will be provided in an updated document that I will drop into the chat once we convene. This is the link to get into the main meeting. https://bcps... Thanks so much and see you all this evening. Tom View File (PDF)
BSA COVID Testing Program Forms Good morning- As we had mentioned at our meetings prior to the onset of the school year, we are beginning the process of Covid-19 testing at BSA. We anticipate the testing will begin next week (week of 9/13) and will occur on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 2nd period and 4th period (9:17am-11:33am) in the mezzanine offices on the 2nd floor. We expect students will be out of class for about 30 minutes start to finish. Students cannot eat or drink for an hour before the test. Those restrictions and the intersection with lunch periods is why we chose those 2nd to 4th period blocks of time. If you would like to have your child exempted from the testing by presenting proof of vaccination, please email that to Nurse Shameka Jackson at sjackson@bsf.... If your child has been vaccinated, but you would like to still opt-in, that is absolutely okay. All BSA students and families must complete either the opt-in or the opt-out form. Both the opt-in and opt-out forms are attached here. Please complete one and email it back to Nurse Jackson at sjackson@bsf... and have them to us by next Monday at the latest. These were issued in homeroom this week and many families have returned them already. If you have done that already, you do not need to complete it again. As always, do not hesitate to reach out with question to myself, Nurse Jackson at sjackson@bsf..., or Principal Roz at rcauthen@bsf... Thanks for your patience, grace and understanding as we navigate so much uncertainty together. Tom View File (PDF)
