Thank you to those of you who completed our Virtual Learning Feedback Survey. We are happy to hear that the majority of our families have found this to be a positive transition and we are extremely grateful for your patience, understanding, and grace as we navigate the remaining days of the school year. 
Based on your feedback, we recognize the need to incorporate time into our school schedule to allow for catch up time, schoolwork, and importantly… a break from screens. Additionally, for the students taking AP exams in a new format beginning May 11, we want to provide time for them to prepare as best they need with individual help and review sessions. 

Effective May 4, Bishop Manogue will now adhere to the following schedule to assist our families, and continue delivering the high-quality instruction that has been recognized in our community:

Friday Schedule: 
8:00-11:00 Miner Block Day
Virtual Parent-Student meetings

Virtual Miner Block Friday
We will offer a Miner Block Friday opportunity for students in need of extra help. It would carry the same expectations as a regular Miner Block and be done virtually.  AP students may also access the Miner Block Friday as a way to help prepare for upcoming exams. 

Miner Block will be divided into four segments of time. Each content area will be provided a segment of time to establish a Google Hangout where Miner Block would take place. This will allow students and parents to prioritize their time and get help where needed. Miner Block will be divided into the following time blocks: 

9:30-10:00-Foreign Language
10:00-10:30-Social Studies
10:30-11:00-other classes/Electives

The week of May 25- May 29 will be a support week. Any student who would like extra help to catch up in material before grades are finalized can ask a teacher for a meeting or join a teacher's posted ‘Review Class.’ There are no official final exams.

Please feel free to contact a member of our administration or your child’s counselor with questions regarding this new schedule format. 

Thank you, 

BMCHS Administration
