Bruin Bite — 20 November


We made it through another GREAT week!  The weather was so nice.  A little windy one day, but beautiful.  I love Fall!  Each year our Student Body Officers put together “Spirit Week” and our GREAT Bruins did not disappoint.  Our student body really showed their school spirit dressing up as movie/book characters, disney characters, and retro.  What a fun week it has been.  Monday is school colors and Tuesday we will finish up with pajama day. We won’t be sending an Bruin Bite next week, so Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you have a lovely time with your family and continue to hope for your safety and health.  

Safety Update:  I have had a few parents ask about positive COVID cases at BMS.  The district posts this information on the District Dashboard.   We continue to remain in the 1-5 range.  I want to express my gratitude for your efforts at home.  While the dashboard says that we have 5 students quarantined, we have several parents who have proactively kept their children home after a positive exposure.  BMS remains in person with some of the lowest rates because of the care you are taking in your homes and the support you give to us as we work with your children to be safe at school.  Thank you!  Your efforts at home and ours at school have made a difference in our COVID dashboard numbers.  As we move into the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, please continue to take care:  

  • Wear a face mask anytime you are around people with whom you don’t live.
  • Maintain physical distance from those who aren’t in your household.
  • Practice good hand-washing hygiene (use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if you don’t have access to soap and water).
  • Stay home when you: are sick, have symptoms of COVID, have tested positive for COVID, or have been placed on quarantine.

The Bruin Bite — 12 November


This week started out with news from the Governor’s office which prompted us to send a Skylert Monday afternoon.  We did cancel after school activities through the Thanksgiving Recess.  We are hopeful that we can resume on November 30th.  We appreciate your help and care.  We have had several families who due to a social exposure or an ill family member have self-quarantined.  Thank you for helping to keep our school safe.  We truly  appreciate your efforts and hope that your family and loved ones and all members of the Butler Family will be healthy and safe through this pandemic.  Let’s all do our part!  

This week I had two parents email us about the good things they had noticed (THANK YOU).  This made me stop and reflect.  Sometimes we get so caught up in the challenges of the day, we forget to notice the good things that are happening.  I know that our teachers and our staff are working so hard to have supports in place for student learning–whether in person, online, or in quarantine.  Our admin team is working hard to support our teachers and students and oversee all the new structures and expectations and make that understandable to our staff and students.  Our students are trying to manage learning in a more virtual and evolving environment.  And parents–I don’t know how you are managing your work, personal, and family stresses.  Everyone is really trying.  And we all may be dropping some things.  This is a season of learning patience and perseverance for all of us.  Anyway, I appreciate those who have reached out to offer appreciate and support as we have faced the impacts of this pandemic.  You should know I believe you are doing amazing things in your home.  So, if you are feeling a bit unappreciated or overwhelmed, please take a moment to watch this video.  You are doing a good job!   Alicia Keys – Good Job | Cover by One Voice Children’s Choir | A Tribute to Covid-19 Heroes
