Dear BBHS Families,
You may already be aware that last night Governor Inslee extended the Stay Home Stay Healthy order through
May 4, 2020
. Staying home and avoiding all non-essential contact with others continues to be the most important thing all of us can do to stay healthy and keep others healthy. Therefore, we will extend our building closure and Digital Distance Learning Plan protocol through that date and likewise all sports and activities are also canceled through May 4. We expect more guidance from the Governor and other authorities specifically related to schools, but at this time we are moving our date to align with the new directive. We will update you as more information becomes available. We will be monitoring WIAA and the Metro League for guidance as to the balance of the spring season. Our spring musical has also been postponed, with no new date or location set at this time.
While we know this extension of the Stay Home order brings a new wave of disappointment and sadness to our students and community members, we are all connected by COVID-19 and will continue to persevere in our response, and be there for one another, even if by distance. We will raise each other up and through these days of this worldwide crisis.
With the skyrocketing use of video conferencing nationwide, there have been reports of an increase of uninvited guests joining conference calls. We have communicated to our teachers additional safeguards, such as passwords and waiting rooms, to ensure only invited students join our classes.
We also wanted to give the latest update on AP exams from the College Board. The exams will be administered at home. Please click
for this important information.
Please refer to our COVID-19
for a full list of BBHS events impacted by the closure and for other resources that may be helpful. Our Google calendar has also been updated to reflect the extended closure.
