New! BUSD Schools Reopening Plan

The 2020-21 BUSD Reopening School Task Force is in the process of developing our plan to begin school on August 19th. Additionally, principals, teachers, and site support staff are working hard to plan the details of site safety procedures as it relates to the guidelines and requirements for reopening schools. This website will serve as the primary location and information for the BUSD reopening plan. The site will be updated on a regular basis between now and the beginning of the school year, and I will send a weekly message on the front page of the site, in an effort to keep parents informed of what the Task Force has accomplished, and to guide you to any updated information within the reopening plan.
