BGS Parents, This morning we had a fire in our 5-8 mechanical room. As a result, we have lost power and many of our safety and technology systems are down. Tomorrow, Monday, August 21, will be a remote learning day. It is my hope we can resolve these issues tomorrow. We will update you tomorrow regarding Tuesday attendance. Also, we will have breakfast and lunch pick up available at the K-2 gym entrance between 10 -11:30 am. I apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you.
