Dear Highlanders,

Just a quick reminder that there is no school tomorrow, February 3rd due to today's school closure. The first day of school will be the group "A" only, on Thursday, February 4th. 

After a semester of experience with the one day in school and one day home learning system, we are changing the student expectations for second semester. During the students’ home learning days, they will be required to join a team meeting for each of their 5 classes. Teachers will either teach new materials or give expectations of the students’ work when they are home learning. Attendance will be taken daily for all students. We hope this will permit students to stay engaged in their learning and connected to the school.

Teachers will either teach new materials or give expectations of the students’ work for when they are home learning. Attendance will be taken daily for all students.

Happy New Year Highlanders,

The BMHS family would like to wish you a great upcoming year and we are looking forward in finishing semester one. Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is a "Group A" day.  

Before the break, we received an email from the Minister Cardy stating that we are invited to wear a mask for the first two weeks after the holiday break. At BMHS, we encourage staff and students to wear masks for the first two weeks of January. This is not mandated; it “strongly encourages” and “invites” the wearing of masks. So mask-wearing protocols remain the same as they have been under the Return to School guidelines for the current Yellow Phase.

May we all stay healthy and safe,

Mr. Daigle​

Talk Mail 21st September, 2020 - Laptop Subsidy Program

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have received the first shipment of laptop ordered through the government subsidy program. We are starting to distribute laptops at the end of the day to the group B students. Tomorrow we will distribute the laptops to the group A students.

We recommend that the students open the box once they get home and keep the box for warranty reasons, if they encounter a problem with the laptop.

·         Once the student has received a new computer, it is considered their property. If they are having an issue with their device, they can request a loaner device, but the school is not responsible for fixing their broken computer. This is a conversation between the student and the vendor (IMP Solutions).

·         Students can call 1-800-387-5757 to speak with the vendor directly or through website https://www.dell.com/support/home/en-ca/

We appreciate your cooperation,

 

BMHS
