  • Principal's May Message

    Posted by Lindsey Pelley on 5/14/2021

    Dear B-P Families,

     

    I hope this communication finds all of our B-P families safe and well as we are already halfway through the month of May. All of our students have transitioned very well this week back into their full in-person learning at B-P, and it is great to have them back on a daily basis. Here is the June Calendar for your planning and reference, and there is no school on Monday, May 31st in honor of Memorial Day.

     

    Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

    Commissioner Riley has asked school districts to share the following with our school families: The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that provides a temporary discount on monthly broadband bills for qualifying low-income households. Eligible households can receive:

    • Up to a $50/month discount on their broadband service and associated equipment rentals

    • Up to a $75/month discount if their household is on qualifying Tribal lands

    • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)

    Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household. Households can begin applying for and enrolling in the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program on Wednesday, May 12. The program will end when the fund runs out of money or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner.

     

    Since my last communication about upcoming senior events, etc., we have surveyed the Class of 2021 for their input to guide the decision making process for the senior celebrations and graduation ceremony. Thus, I am sharing all of the latest information and updates that have been made over the past few weeks with the senior planning committee. 

     

    Senior Cap & Gown Payments: There are approximately 10 seniors who have not paid for their caps & gowns and will not receive them if they are not paid for. All seniors received an email from Paypal in your student @bptech.org email.  You can use that email to pay for your Cap & Gown online.  A Paypal account is not needed for this transaction.  Payments can be processed via debit or credit card if you select that as your option. You can mail or bring a check made payable to Bristol-Plymouth RTS for $20.00  to 207 Hart St., Taunton, MA 02780 (Attn: Ms. Pelley) and in the memo area write your name and cap & gown. 

     

    Senior Obligation List

    Failure to return any items will generate a student-obligation list and an invoice will be sent to your home for these items that are not returned from our students. Per the student-parent handbook, students who are on the obligation list will not be allowed to participate in any upcoming senior events and that also could include participation in the graduation ceremony. Please contact the school’s business office at 508-823-5151 x109 with any questions about any invoice that you’ve received online that you are concerned about. 

     

    Senior Scholarship/Awards Night 

    We will be posting the senior scholarship/awards night pre-taped video online at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 20th at www.bptech.org. Scholarships and awards recipients, who have been invited, by email, to an in-person awards night in the cafeteria, must RSVP by Friday, May 14th, in order to receive their scholarship or award in person. This is an optional in-person event, and anyone who would like to view the pre-taped video with their families at home will receive their scholarship or award inside their guidance packets on their last day of school on Friday, May 28th.

     

    Senior Last Academic Day

    The last academic day for seniors is Friday, May 21st, and grades will close for seniors on Tuesday, June 1st. This day will also provide our senior students an opportunity to return any B-P issued property including but not limited to: academic and shop/related books, library books, Chromebooks (if not being used for senior project presentations) any Fall 2 athletic uniforms and/or gear, calculators, etc. Senior remote and shop-only students also need to return their books, Chromebooks, etc. to the school and can arrange to drop them off to the reception desk, help desk, or main office from May 21st through May 28th from 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Seniors are also encouraged to wear their Class of 2021 t-shirts to school on this day.

     

    Senior Co-op

    Seniors are encouraged to wear their college, military, or employment shirt or attire to B-P, and those seniors that participate will receive a raffle ticket that will be drawn for prizes on Friday, May 28th. After lunch shifts, and by shop, seniors will have a ticket voucher to visit the on-site ice cream truck for a treat of their choice.

     

    Early Release/Senior Projects

    Grades 9, 10, and 11 will be dismissed at 12:20 p.m. on Thursday, May 27th. Seniors will remain in school until 2:30 p.m. to present their senior projects beginning at 12:30 p.m. All seniors will have to provide their own ride home because bus transportation will not be available. Seniors will also be able to retrieve their personal belongings from the shop, such as tools, toolboxes, senior projects, etc. 

     

    Senior Success & Celebration Day

    The last day of school for seniors will be on Friday, May 28th and is a full day of school. All of the day’s events will be held outdoors, so a rain date is scheduled for Tuesday, June 1st. We are in the process of preparing several events to celebrate with our seniors on this day and the day begins with all seniors arriving and checking in at 8 a.m. through the cafeteria entrance. They will be divided into groups and I will give directions and an overview of the day’s events. Some of these events will include a graduation rehearsal, senior stations with distributions of caps and gowns, yearbooks, scholarships/awards, guidance counselor packets, detailed graduation information, and other important items to name a few. These stations will rotate outdoors with both sign-up competitions and free-play activities that will coincide with raffle items and prizes. All seniors will participate in a culinary-arts prepared cookout, and end the day with an opportunity for yearbook signing before dismissal. 

     

    Student Council Sponsored “Movie Night”

    This will be held on Friday, May 28th from 7:30 - 10 p.m. in the gym parking lot and is open to the first 150 students to sign up for a first-come, first-serve basis to watch a PG-13 movie. There will be no charge for the movie, but the Student Council will be selling snacks and drinks as their fundraiser. Students who attend will be asked to bring a lawn chair if they have one. We will have standard chairs for anyone who doesn’t bring a lawn chair to this evening event. This event will be canceled if it rains and an announcement will be made during the school day. All students who attend must have a ride home at 10 p.m. All attendees must be masked to enter.

     

    Senior Semi-Formal Outdoor Dance

All seniors are invited to attend and tickets are free, but seniors must have a ticket to attend and have met all of their senior obligations. There will be a DJ, decorations, drinks and snacks provided. Safe distance dancing will be allowed, but no slow dancing and all attendees must wear masks at all times, except for eating and drinking in shifts in designated seating areas. For any additional information, please contact Ms. Tina Bennett, senior class advisor, at tbennett@bptech.org

     

    Senior Graduation

    The graduation will be on Saturday, June 5, 2021, at 11 a.m. on the football field. Seniors have voted for a traditional ceremony, and in order to follow all of the state and local guidelines, each senior will be allowed 2 guest tickets. Seniors will arrive at the school by 10 a.m. and check in with their teachers and line up in the gym. Seniors will sit in their designated seats and can be spaced 3 feet apart, while guests within the same household may sit together and be 6 feet apart from others. In order to accommodate guests who are not from the same household, we will have additional single seating that will be 6 feet apart. All guests must have a ticket to enter onto the field, and no other guests will be allowed outside of the fenced area. Additionally, guests must stay in their assigned seats, except for bathroom purposes, but cannot approach the stage area for photographs. We will have Lifetouch photographers taking photos of all graduates that will be available for purchase. The event will also be livestreamed and able to be viewed on our website at www.bptech.org starting at 11 a.m. Once the graduation concludes, seniors will meet their families outside of the football field and fenced area. In the event of inclement weather, the graduation date will be on Saturday, June 12, 2021, at 11 a.m. The decision to reschedule the graduation will be made and announced by Thursday, June 3rd if rain is predicted. All graduates and guests must be masked at all times during this ceremony.

     

    As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, especially as we prepare for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.

  • Principal's April Message

    Posted by Lindsey Pelley on 4/29/2021

    Dear B-P Families,

     

    I hope this communication finds all of our B-P families safe and well. As you may have heard, the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education approved Commissioner Riley’s plan to return high school students to full in-person learning. With receiving this new information, we have proactively begun to work with all of our B-P stakeholders in planning to put an action plan in motion for full in-person instruction for all students at all grade levels (both academic and vocational-technical). Based on the information we have at this time, we are optimistic that we can offer full in-person learning for all of our students beginning Monday, May 10, 2021. We will continue with our current 6-day rotation model, or a variation of it, through the end of this school year, but we have also adjusted the schedule to incorporate MCAS testing and senior projects/events. May Calendar June Calendar

     

    Students who are currently attending the hybrid learning model will come to school daily. Students who are currently attending the shop-only model will come to school on all of their shop days, and students who are currently enrolled as fully remote learners can also continue to learn remotely. However, in order for us to plan for further preparations if you wish to CHANGE your child’s current learning schedule, please complete this form by Tuesday, May 4th. Student Request to Change Learning Plan

     

    Please note that depending on the chosen learning selection, your child may have an entire schedule change for their academic classes/teachers for the remainder of the school year. Additionally, the remote-learning option may look different from the current remote learning option depending on teacher availability for synchronous learning opportunities. Remote students will be learning more independently and should be self-motivated through their asynchronous lessons with teacher check-ins.  

     

    Bus Stops

     

    All students must be at their bus stops 15 minutes earlier beginning on Monday, May 10th because there will be changes made to the routes to accommodate all students riding the bus to school. If you have any questions or concerns about bus transportation, the stop, or the route, please contact Bloom Bus at (508) 822-7377. 

     

    Freshman and Sophomore MCAS Testing

     

    The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) is still requiring in-person MCAS testing in the Spring of 2021 for grade 9 science (biology) and for grade 10 ELA and Mathematics.  All high school testing must be completed in person at school. Please see the following link for more information regarding Grade 9 and 10 MCAS Examinations:

     

    Grade 9 and 10 MCAS

     

    Optional Junior MCAS Testing

     

    Current juniors are not required to take the MCAS examinations in order to earn their competency determination (CD) to meet the state’s graduation requirements. However, current Juniors may still elect to take the test this spring to qualify for the Adams Scholarship and Koplik Certificate of Mastery.

     

    Please see the following link for more information regarding the optional MCAS testing for Grade 11 students.  Junior students will need to opt-in to take the MCAS tests in ELA and Math this year by filling out the opt-in form. The deadline for Juniors opting into MCAS is Friday, May 7th, 2021.

     

    Grade 11 MCAS Opt-In

     

    Senior Scholarship/Awards Night 

    We will be posting the senior scholarship/awards night video online at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 20th at www.bptech.org. Scholarships and awards recipients will receive these inside their guidance packets on their last day of school on Friday, May 28th.

     

    Senior Last Academic Day

    The last academic day for seniors is Friday, May 21st. This day will also provide our senior students an opportunity to return any B-P issued property including but not limited to: academic and shop/related books, library books, Chromebooks (if not being used for senior project presentations) any Fall 2 athletic uniforms and/or gear, calculators, etc. Senior remote and shop-only students also need to return their books, Chromebooks, etc. to the school and can arrange to drop them off to the reception desk, help desk, or main office from May 21st through May 28th from 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

     

    Senior Co-op

    The last day for seniors to participate in this year’s co-operative (co-op) learning experience is Tuesday, May 25th. 

     

    Early Release/Senior Projects

    Grades 9, 10, and 11 will be dismissed at 12:20 p.m. on Thursday, May 27th. Seniors will remain in school until 2:30 p.m. to present their senior projects beginning at 12:30 p.m. All seniors will have to provide their own ride home because bus transportation will not be available.

    Senior Success & Celebration Day

    The last day of school for seniors will be on Friday, May 28th, and is a full day of school. All of the day’s events will be held outdoors, so a rain date is scheduled for Tuesday, June 2nd. We are in the process of preparing several events to celebrate with our seniors on this day and more information will be forthcoming. Caps and gowns, yearbooks, scholarships/awards, guidance counselor packets, detailed graduation information, and other important items will be distributed on this day as well. 

     

    Senior Obligation List

    Failure to return any items will generate a student-obligation list and an invoice will be sent to your home for these items that are not returned from our students. Per the student-parent handbook, students who are on the obligation list will not be allowed to participate in any upcoming senior events and that also could include participation in the graduation ceremony. Please contact the school’s business office at 508-823-5151 x109 with any questions about any invoice that you’ve received online that you are concerned about. 

     

    Senior Graduation

    The date for the graduation ceremony is still Saturday, June 5th, and there will be more details sent now that the MA Dept. of Education released its guidelines and logistics at B-P can be determined based on this guidance we received.

     

    COVID Update

    This week, the MA Dept. of Education released an update on identifying close contacts. Close contacts who were exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual in the classroom or on the bus while both individuals were masked do not have to quarantine unless they were within 3 feet of distance of the COVID-19 positive individual for a total of 15 minutes during a 24-hour period. This does not apply if someone was identified as a close contact outside of the classroom or bus (e.g., in sports, extra-curriculars, lunch, etc.) or if masks are not worn by both persons at the time of the exposure. All other close contacts must follow the standard protocol for when a close contact may return to school.  For further information click here for the MA DPH website.

     

     As a reminder, DPH defines close contact as:

    • Being within 6 feet of a COVID-19 case (someone who has tested positive) for a total of 15 minutes during a 24-hour period. Multiple brief or transitory interactions (less than a minute) throughout the day are unlikely to result in 15 minutes of cumulative contact and do not meet the definition of close contact. Being in the same room as an individual if you are consistently separated by 6 feet of distance does not meet the definition of a close contact.

    • Close contact can occur while being with, caring for, living with, visiting, or sharing a healthcare waiting area or room with a COVID-19 case, 

    OR

    • Having direct physical contact with the person (e.g. hugging or kissing), 

    OR 

    • Sharing eating or drinking utensils, 

    OR 

    • Having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (e.g., being coughed on) while not wearing recommended personal protective equipment. 

    As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, especially as we prepare for the next few months of the 2020-2021 school year. We all look forward to having the majority of our students back at B-P very soon for in-person learning!

  • Principal's February 28th Message

    Posted by Lindsey Pelley on 2/28/2021

    Dear B-P Families,

     

    I hope this communication finds all of our B-P families safe and well-rested from our February vacation week and ready to begin a new month tomorrow. Here are some upcoming events, deadlines, and information for these next few weeks.

     

    Freshmen Families

    The release date for Final Shop Placement is going to be Wednesday, March 17 at 3 p.m. In order to look up your child’s BP Freshman's "Final Shop Placement", you must have access to ASPEN Student/Family portal. Families already have access to their ASPEN account as this is the same platform where students review their grades and look up their shop exploratory bi-weekly placement. However, if families still do not know their login credentials or might have gotten "locked out" of their account, you must CLICK HERE to fill an online form or email techsupport@bptech.org with any questions about the form in order to obtain or reset your ASPEN account username and password.  Further "Final Placement Directions" on how to actually look up the Final Placement Shop will be released on March 17 at 3 p.m. Any other questions may be directed to Mr. Montesano, Gr 9 guidance counselor,  at mmontesano@bptech.org

     

    School Calendars 

    The March school calendar has been posted on our B-P website for 2020-21. We will continue to follow this year’s normal 6-day rotation. Please note that Wednesday, March 17th is a full professional development day for B-P staff, and there will be no school for either in-person or remote students on that day. The April school calendar has also been recently posted on our website for your planning purposes.

     

    Attendance Tracking

    At the beginning of the school year, I communicated with parents about how the state is tracking student attendance through the hybrid learning model for daily reporting purposes. If your child is scheduled for an in-person school day and is not physically in school, they are considered absent and can complete their make-up work through assignments that are posted on their teachers’ Google classrooms. Although we are glad to know that they are being responsible for completing all of their make-up work at home, they are not physically here at school. Here is the language that came directly from the MA Dept. of Elementary & Secondary Education at the beginning of this school year:

    SIMS (Student Information Management System)  reporting change for 2020-2021:

    This school year, in-person attendance and remote attendance will be collected separately in SIMS.

    The existing Days in Attendance data element (DOE017) will be specific to in-person attendance.  To collect data on remote attendance, two new fields have been added to the SIMS data collection: DOE054 (Days of Attendance Remote) and DOE055 (Days Absent Remote).  

    Districts will need to record daily student attendance and absences in the local SIS as either in-person or remote, to ensure that these distinct categories are transmitted to DESE in SIMS reporting in the appropriate data elements. If any portion of the school day is in-person, then the day of attendance should be categorized as in-person.

     

    Term 4 Schedule Change Form 

    Students are in the midst of Term 3 and no schedule changes can be made at this time unless there are extenuating circumstances. However, the guidance counselors will take online requests to make schedule changes for Term 4 by completing this form by Friday, March 26th for the new term that begins on April 7th so we can allow for cafeteria, classroom, and transportation changes to the current Term 3 schedules. Students who are fully remote can change to the “shop only” learning model at any time. Please contact your child’s guidance counselor for any further information.

     

    Fall 2 Sports Season Update

    After much consideration, Bristol-Plymouth has decided to hold the Fall 2 sports season that is scheduled to take place during the months of March and April. With the large majority of Mayflower Athletic Conference teams deciding to play the Fall 2 sports season, student-athlete safety guidelines will be forthcoming soon from the league’s athletic directors for each sport: football, cross country, cheerleading, soccer (boys & girls), volleyball (girls), hockey, and golf. Varsity sports only will be played through the Fall 2 season. 

     

    A number of factors for student-athletes to be able to play this season include being a student in good standing: on the grade requirement eligibility list, being in a hybrid or shop-only learning model, and having completed all of the necessary paperwork, including physical exam documentation within the last 13 months on file at B-P. In addition, there will be no late bus to bring students home. Student-athletes must provide their own transportation to school on remote learning days for practices and games and from school at 5 p.m. on all practice days and, potentially, later for home or away games.  In the event that the health and safety of the student-athletes, coaches, and officials are jeopardized at any point, during the Fall 2 season, sports schedules may be subject to change or be canceled. 

     

    Moving forward, we will keep you updated on any potential spring season sports offerings at Bristol-Plymouth for the months of May and June.

    There are only 20 2019-2020 yearbooks available that are left over from the last school year. The cost is $80 and checks should be made out to Bristol-Plymouth. Your child can contact Mrs. Bisch, last year’s advisor, to make this exchange at B-P, or feel free to email her at jbisch@bptech.org. These will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.
