I hope this finds you and your families safe and healthy. As these summer days begin to wane, and we look toward the return to school, I want to assure you that BC High is committed to re-opening in a hybrid model. Principal Lewis and his team are hard at work finalizing our guidelines - and we look forward to sharing them with you soon. The safety of our community members is paramount, and in some cases our practices will be even more stringent than the suggested guidelines for schools.

Over the past few months, we have had many difficult conversations that I know will help us grow and become a better school. And, we have certainly faced hardships and uncertainty but it is important to look for hope. And hope is exactly what I felt on Friday, as we gathered together with the Class of 2020 for an in-person graduation that once seemed impossible. It truly was a remarkable evening - safe, responsible, and well-planned - that allowed us to respect the circumstances of our present situation while still coming together.

And there are other reasons to hope too. From the Second Annual National Anti-Racism Teach-In this week, to our all-new website that shares the BC High story like never before. In the words of Robert Kennedy, "if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.”

Our community is hopeful, and it is prepared to meet the challenges and blessings of this upcoming school year with grace and determination. I am grateful for your continued support and partnership in everything we do.

Honoring the Class of 2020 at the 156th Commencement
On Friday, we celebrated a very special Feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola alongside the Class of 2020 as they received their diplomas and became BC High alumni. We were blessed to be joined by so many family members, faculty, staff, and our commencement speaker – Mr. John Barros ’92 – at our historic 156th Commencement Exercises.
