Outdoor ‘Together Time’

Bayport-Blue Point School District recently held its first monthly “No Homework Night” of the 2020-21 school year, an initiative that encourages district students to enjoy “together time” with their families. The theme of this night was outdoor fun, which led families to partake in activities ranging from playing in their backyards to taking walks around the neighborhood to going fishing.




Nothing is Impossible

In Christine Brand’s third grade class at Blue Point Elementary School, there is one word that is completely off-limits: “impossible.” According to Brand, she does not allow her students to use this word in class because “nothing is impossible to do or achieve.” To set the tone for their new school year, the third graders participated in an activity in which they each wrote this forbidden word on a piece of paper, tore it up and threw it away.

On Friday, September 11, Bayport-Blue Point School District enthusiastically welcomed back students and staff for the start of the 2020-21 school year!

Welcome Back Message from Dr. Hearney

September 10, 2020

Dear Bayport-Blue Point Community,

I, along with the faculty and staff of BBP, could not be happier to welcome the students back tomorrow.  The 2020-2021 school year is shaping up to be a memorable and exciting year.

As a reminder, COVID-19 has played a large role in the changes we will all see this fall.  Many modifications were made to the classrooms to accommodate the social distancing requirements for our students. Although face coverings (masks preferably over gaiters) are required to be worn while on school property, there will be mask breaks throughout the day. In addition, students will become well versed in proper hygiene, with posters around the buildings reminding them to wash their hands and not touch their face.  Another new feature this year is the daily health questionnaire that must be completed before students arrive to school each day.  You can find your school-specific building questionnaire link on the District website or by clicking here: http://www.bbpschools.org/staff/covid_survey.

As we enter the new school year, I ask for your continued support by limiting large social gatherings outside of school.  I also ask that you continue to encourage your child to wash his/her hands on a regular basis, to wear a face mask and to practice social distancing both in and out of the classroom. We know that these three actions, when combined together, will help control the spread of this virus.  The goal for the District is to keep the children in school, and together, with your help, we believe we can do just that. 

Whether your child is returning to full in-person, hybrid or the virtual educational model, we are looking forward to welcoming them back for what will be a different but nevertheless a successful school year. 

Sincerely,

Dr. Timothy P. Hearney
Superintendent of Schools
