August 27, on Canvas in the eLearning module.  

     - Teachers will be available online from 10:00am-12:00pm. Students simply log on to Canvas or Teams to access their teacher. Teachers will make it known to their classes how to reach them.   

     - Assignments are due the next school day at 8:00am, that means they are due by Monday, August 30.   

     - Attendance is taken by turning in the assignment to the teacher.  Next week, the week of August 30, lunches will be limited due to the substitute staff that will be assisting us. There will only be one regular lunch served each day. There is no ala carte line or extras being sold.  Each student can only get the one free lunch each day. If your student needs more than the regular/standard lunch, please have him/her bring extra food from home to supplement the lunch. Lunch on Monday, August 30, will be pizza. The Administration will be working to come up with a meal plan the rest of the week based off the inventory received tomorrow morning.  

     - Extra-curricular activities and contests will go on as planned. We sincerely thank you all in advance for your cooperation in this. Keep our school community in your prayers. BD Administration
