Dear students, families, & community members,
I am excited to announce the first half of the school year was so much more successful than any of us could have imagined! We really came together as a community to bring learning and extracurriculars to our students in traditional and non-traditional ways. I am proud to announce that each and every staff member came up with a plan to mitigate the COVID 19 virus. A good example is how we developed an online platform for learning, called the BVDOO, in just a few short months. Our choir sings in pods and maintains being apart with masks, and the band instruments have specially designed masks. The science department has virtual labs and lunch is now extended into the library to spread students out. These are just a few examples of how we have made things work and moved forward despite many obstacles.
This is exactly what we want to teach out students. To graduate from BV with the skills to persevere through obstacles and work together to find solutions.
Every staff member from secretary to custodian to teacher to coach has stepped up and sacrificed to make learning possible for our students. The students have been INCREDIBLE following the "new" rules and not complaining one bit.
So during this holiday season, please enjoy time with family in a safe way and reflect on all the successes that will spring us forward to new heights in the future.
Proud to be a Baron,
Brian P. Baker, Principal
