Online Learning Reminders

Attendance to LIVE google-meets and completing assignments during at-home          learning days are so important for all our students in the BPS Hybrid Learning Model.

  • Attendance is taken by all classroom teachers everyday. If your child will be absent for the day,, please notify the teacher and the school office via email at
  • Being set up and ready for learning at home will help your child stay focused throughout their online google-meets!

Here are some tips to help your child stay focused while learning at home:

  • Create a designated spot for learning!
  • Gather all materials and supplies for their day in the morning so that they are ready for their at-home learning activities.
  • When attending LIVE google-meets, use the school device with the camera on at all times and microphone muted when instructed by their classroom teacher.
  • Keep distracting items in a different location.
  • Teachers schedule breaks throughout the day such as snack, lunch, recess and bathroom use. Please use this time to check-in with your child, provide him/her time to exercise and time off their devices.

JBS Families – Thank you for your ongoing support at home!!!!
