Based on family feedback during the first week of remote learning, as well as the governor’s extension of the school building closure period until at least May 1, we are revising our technology plan for chromebook distribution.

Class of 2020 - Important Information

Please find attached a letter to our BWHS Class of 2020 regarding prom and graduation.  This letter is on Schoology, Facebook, and will be sent in a text/email blast to senior families.

Technology Update - 4.01.2020

The move to remote learning has included some technology issues for several of us. Some are struggling with reliable internet access at home, and Schoology has been overloaded at certain times, making it difficult to access assignments.

COVID-19 Family Update - 3.30.2020

Thank you for your patience today as many districts across the nation accessed Schoology in unprecedented numbers.  Their team is working diligently to continue to increase capacity as we all adjust to this new normal. When all else fails, have your child read, read, read.

COVID-19 Family Update 3.28.20

I hope you are having a great-- albeit unconventional-- spring break.  I have lots of news today, including how House Bill 197, which was just signed into law yesterday afternoon by Governor DeWine, will impact our students.

COVID-19 Update to Families - 3.24.2020

In reviewing our technology plan for chromebook repairs, we have determined that we will be able to offer hardware repairs at our central office as needed.

Due to the Governor’s “stay-at-home order” being announced today, our district technology department will be working from home beginning this Tuesday until at least April 6.

COVID-19 District Update - Technology Support

As we continue to adapt to this situation, I want to update you on our technology support.  As you have probably learned in communication from principals and staff, we will rely on some technology and internet access for students during this remote learning period.

COVID-19 District Update 3.18.2020

As we continue to adapt to this situation, I want to thank the many community volunteers and our awesome food service crew for packing up food for our families in need.

I wanted to reach out with some updates and clarifications for you.  I apologize for the length, but I have lots of information to share.

COVID-19 Update - All Call 3.14.2020

While we had initially planned to use this coming Monday, the last day we are permitted to be open, as a last opportunity for staff to meet with students to provide resources and directions for remote learning, we will now be closed to students on Monday.
