It's like Groundhog Day...
Prior to March 11th, 2020 when asked about what it's like to be a high school principal, my common refrain was, "every day is different!" However, for the past ten moths I have often felt like I am stuck in the time loop that Bill Murray experiences in the classic early 90s movie Groundhog Day. So, it's fitting to share with you today - on Groundhog Day - that I can not wait for the "every day is different" refrain to return! I am looking forward to seeing high school kids on the BHS campus on February 22nd.
We are busy working behind the scenes (see photo above) - getting books, supplies and materials into the hands of students learning at home, preparing classrooms for teaching and learning and laying out the logistics of our school day from start to finish. The BHS admin team has been on site at the K-8 schools as they have opened up over the past week, and we are learning from our colleagues about small moves that make a big difference. We will be pushing out detailed information about our campus reopening to students and families in the weeks ahead - so stay tuned to your email and be sure to check out the linked sites below.
Thank you for your partnership as we embark on a return to learning on the Bainbridge High School campus.
