Limited In-Person Learning Dear BSA family, Yesterday we welcomed back 9th and 12th grade students to limited in-person learning. Next Monday, 10th and 11th grade students will have the opportunity to return in limited cohorts for academic or arts learning. This file contains a sketch of the overall plan, with meeting times for each art area. A poll will be sent to 10th and 11th grade families in the next 24 hours to ascertain your interest in returning to limited in-person learning. Please let us know your interest. Based on the results of that poll, more information will be forthcoming about this opportunity. Thank you, Chris Ford View File (PDF)

Schedule for 3/10 Good afternoon all- I hope everyone is getting some time to soak in the restorative springtime sun and air! Attached is the Lab Wednesday schedule for tomorrow 3/10. As Dr. Ford referenced in an earlier email to students, tomorrow will be all asynchronous as the faculty and staff complete health and safety protocol training as we prepare to re-open school for some 9th graders. Please make sure students spend some time in both the ELA and math options for tomorrow. This will constitute their attendance. As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

Schedule for 3/3 Good afternoon all- Attached is the schedule of sessions for tomorrow's Lab Wednesday (3/3). Please note that it is a district-mandated early release day, so all sessions will cease at 12:30pm. Please make sure your child attends two sessions to get full attendance credit for the day. Please note that there is the second installment of our Black Futures: Alumni Discussion happening at 11:30am tomorrow with two BSA alums-Eric Perryman and Nicole Daniels. The topic is Race, Identity, and Performance. We would love for students to attend and hear from our alums on these critical issues. Take a moment to look at the flyers embedded in the schedule to give you some more information. For 9th and 10th graders, there is an information session at 10:30am on a possible paid internship offered through Micky Wolf and Dent Education. There is also a flyer embedded into the schedule as well. If that interests students, I would definitely have them check it out. As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

Schedule for 2/24 Good evening parents! I hope everyone is having a good week! Attached is the schedule for tomorrow's Lab Wednesday (2/24) sessions. We are drawing special attention this week to our Black History Month virtual showcase that will be presented at 1:35pm. The staff and students have put an amazing amount of time and energy into this showcase to make it really awesome, so please encourage your young folks to make some time to attend this session and support the work of their peers and our dedicated faculty. Nothing else has been scheduled in that block of time so it can be enjoyed uninterrupted. Additionally, the MountainFilm Festival is back at 12:35pm with four short films followed by Q&A with some of the directors. Again-this is a really great opportunity to see working artists and their professional work so I would highly recommend that students take some time to attend that session as well. Students received a flyer in their email from me that gives them some times and direction on some district-led mindfulness sessions. You can email me privately if you would like to see that flyer too. As always, let me know if you have any questions. Have a great evening! Tom View File (PDF)

English & Social Studies Placement for 21/22 Hello families- As the school begins to plan for the next academic year, we are asking for your input on course selections that will impact your student's schedule for English and Social Studies.

Second, for social studies, they should attend the Wednesday Lab session on Feb. 10th to complete the prerequisite assignment. Student selections are just one part of the consideration for course enrollment and will be considered alongside factors such as attendance, writing quality, standardized test scores, class participation, and current grades. For AP English courses, Ms. Bacon offered an optional student information session on Friday, Feb. 5th from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m.If they missed that, I encourage them to reach out to Ms. Bacon.
