BGS Parents: Due to high number of Covid related illnesses and quarantines among BGS faculty and staff we will be implementing a short term closure beginning Monday, Nov. 9 through the conclusion of Thanksgiving break. Students return to school on Monday, Nov. 30. All students will be full-time remote learning on scheduled instructional days during the closure. We certainly regret the need to pause in-person instruction, but the safety and health of everyone at BGS is and will remain our top priority. Thank you.
