9/25/20 Letter to Parents

Good afternoon BUES families, 

As we end our second week of remote learning and begin to prepare for in-person learning, I have several updates to share. 

In person schedule for the next two weeks 

  • The next phase of our reopening begins on Monday, September 28th. For the first TWO WEEKS, in person learning at BUES will be from 8:00 am -12:10 pm. Those students who are in the building will be dismissed at 12:10.
  • Wednesdays are remote for all. The Wednesday schedule will be the same as this week. Days for each cohort
  • If your student is in cohort A: they will be in-person on Monday, Tuesday; they will be remote on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
  • If your student is in cohort B: they will be remote on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday; they will be in-person on Thursday and Friday.
  • If your student is in cohort C: they will be in-person on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday; they will be remote on Wednesday. 
  • If a student comes to school on a day they are not supposed to, you will have to come to the building and pick them up. 

If you are driving your student to school 

  • Please see the map for parent pick up (attached).
  • Students will enter using different doors depending on grade level. 
  • Students can get dropped off starting at 7:50 am.
  • Pick up will start at 11:50 am.
  • On Monday, we will have Barnstable Police officers on hand to help with traffic flow. Please be patient as we are anticipating an increase in parent drop-off and pick-up. 

Breakfast and Lunch 

  • Students will receive a brown-bag breakfast as they enter the building and a lunch they can bring home. We will not be eating lunch at school next week. In addition to breakfast, students will have time for a snack that they can bring from home. Breakfast is free all year, and lunch will be free until December 31st.
  • For cohort D students (Monday. Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) and for all students on Wednesdays, lunch is available for pick up 9 am -10am. 

What to keep in backpacks for the year 

  • Students will keep their backpacks on their chairs throughout the day. Small package of tissues
  • Small bottle of hand sanitizer
  • An extra mask 
  • Water bottle 

Thank you for your continued effort to support your child’s learning. I am looking forward to having students return to the building. It’s been too long! 

Have a great weekend! 

- Mr. Wojkowski, BUES Principal
