We are off to a great start to this school year with our online learning. Despite a few challenges with technology, our students and staff have really stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park. As we continue to work our way through this process, know we are available to assist you in any way. Feel free to contact our front office daily from 7:30 am-3:00 pm.

As many of you are aware, all of the individual schools are now handling ALL technical issues. If you are having issues with logging into your child’s Clever, Canvas, or computer issues, please call us so we can set up an appointment for you. Please know, we only have one micro-tech so in order to meet the demands of our 800+ students, we must take your name and number and call you back in the order we receive the calls. We will do our very best to get back to you within 24-48 hours. You can always click on the links below to try to trouble shoot on your own before calling.

In an abundance of caution given recent cyber attacks to local school districts, BCPS Information Technology Division requests that students who have never changed their password from its default, immediately change their password using the attached instructions. Please click on the link below in order to follow the steps to make these changes. Please make sure when you do change your child’s password in a safe place to remember.

Students are expected to ALL follow acceptable technology usage on any devices that are issued by the school board and using school board programs. Please click on this link to see the expected use guidelines for technology and here to view expectations for Social Media: Think B4U Post!

Food Distribution:

Food distribution is in full swing. Due to the recent approval of a wavier that will stay in place until December 31, all meals for children between the ages of 3-18, will be free. This is a change from the status at the beginning of the year. Meals will still be distributed on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11-1 and 3-5 pm. Click here for more information.

School Reopening Update:

As many of you are aware, the goal of our Superintendent and School Board is to get students back face to face for learning. At this point, the school board will be addressing this and a plan on September 22nd at a board workshop. Our understanding is the earliest we would look at opening would be towards the end of October. Please know as we get information we will get this out to you. The main goal is to make sure all of our staff and students are safe if we are able to get back to this face to face learning. Please check out for most current updates or watch the school board workshops.
