Masks are required. Cloth masks are recommended. Masks should be washed daily. Here is the CDC guidance on washing masks: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/how-to-wash-cloth-face-coverings.html. BPS recommends all students in grades K-12 have a backpack with a padded compartment or a padded Neoprene sleeve (14 inch) to carry their Chromebook/laptop back and forth to school this year, if needed. We also suggest that students have their own earbuds or headphones that include the built-in microphone.
High Schoolsdon't have school supply lists. On the first day, students should bring notebooks, pens, and pencils. Each teacher will tell the students if they need something specific for that class.
