Hybrid Program Clarification

There have been several requests from our families for further explanation of the hybrid option identified in our return to school surveys. We want to apologize for any confusion that we caused in our previous communications and hope that this makes our intentions more clear.

Governor Wolf's Order to Wear Face Masks in Schools

On Friday, July 3, 2020, the state provided the clarification that this order, while in effect, does apply to schools when 6 feet of social distancing cannot be maintained.  Please click here to review their clarification. Essentially, this means that our plan to reopen now must include that all employees and students wear masks for the duration of the order.

PTA YEARBOOK UPDATE

Reminder that we are still going to have a yearbook this year. If you have not ordered yours yet, please do so online as soon as possible. We will notify everyone and plan a way for these to be picked up once they arrive. Also, as the year was shortened due to this pandemic, we are in need of as many photos for the yearbook as possible. If you have any photos from students in any of the grades or school activities, please upload these as soon as possible. We want to try to include as many photos of our students as possible. Thank you in advance! Photo upload link: www.hjeshare.com school code: bfe2020 Yearbook order link: www.yearbookordercenter.com school Code: 16882
