Students with Disabilities: Parent Consent Update for Distance Learning and Telepractice

The District intends to administer special education and related services remotely through Distance Learning which may involve video teaching and/or telepractice. If your child accesses services through video teaching and/or telepractice, the District shall consider such access as your consent to receive services through that modality. Any parent who does not agree to receiving services through that modality should contact Natalie Doyle at ndoyle@bbpschools.org. If you do not consent to the use of video teaching and/or telepractice, your child will be provided instruction in an alternative format, such as through written instructional materials or telephone consults. We ask all students and family members to be respectful of the privacy interests of other students. As a result, where possible, students participating in group services should attempt to do so from a location which cannot be observed by others. To the extent that family members observe the delivery of instruction to other students, we ask that you respect the privacy of the other students and not disclose personal information about any student to any third party.

Si su hijo accede a los servicios mediante video enseñanza y / o telepráctica, el Distrito considerará dicho acceso como su consentimiento para recibir servicios a través de esa modalidad. Cualquier padre que no acepte recibir servicios a través de esa modalidad debe comunicarse con Natalie Doyle, Administradora de Servicios de Personal para Alumnos, a ndoyle@bbpschools.org.
 
Si no acepta el uso de la enseñanza en video y / o la telepráctica, se le proporcionará a su hijo instrucción en un formato alternativo, tal como a través de materiales de instrucción escritos o consultas telefónicas. Pedimos a todos los estudiantes y miembros de la familia que respeten los intereses de privacidad de otros estudiantes. Como resultado, cuando sea posible, los estudiantes que participan en servicios grupales deberían intentar hacerlo desde un lugar que otros no puedan observar. En la medida en que los miembros de la familia observen la entrega de instrucción a otros estudiantes, le pedimos que respete la privacidad de los otros estudiantes y que no revele información personal sobre ningún estudiante a terceros.

Census Reminder

Dear Bayport-Blue Point Community,

 

I just wanted to send everyone a quick reminder about the 2020 Census. By now, you should have received an invitation in the mail for the 2020 Census.

As you may be aware, individuals across the United States will be asked to take part in the 2020 Census this spring. There are several reasons why this national survey is important for us locally in Bayport-Blue Point. Here are a few fast facts to keep in mind:

 

The census is a count of everyone living in the United States and is required by the U.S. Constitution. The official census day is April 1, 2020 but you can enter the information now.

  • The census can be completed online, on paper, by phone or directly to a census worker.
  • Census data is used to decide how much funding our region receives for resources such as hospitals, schools, roads, health insurance, public works and much more. This census data will be used to help determine funding for Bayport-Blue Point’s Title I grants, special education grants and support through the National School Lunch Program.
  • Census data also helps to determine the number of representatives we have in Congress. An undercount would limit our voices and representation.
  • The census only happens once every 10 years, meaning that the data-driven changes made as a result of this year’s participation will be in effect until 2030. Therefore, under-participation could mean our schools are underfunded for the next decade.

Above all things, the census is simple and safe to fill out. It can be answered in about 10 minutes or less. The data collected is completely private, as a census worker can face severe fines or even jail time if they share any responses.

 

Please be assured, every single person counts when it comes to the census, including young children and infants. It should be seen as a tool for empowerment and one that will help bring our community together and ensure the bright future our region deserves.

Sincerely,

Dr. Timothy Hearney

First graders at Sylvan Avenue Elementary School recently celebrated their 101st day of the school year in a “paw”sitively wonderful way. On Feb. 25, the students dressed up as the canine characters from the Disney classic “101 Dalmatians” and participated in a variety of math, writing, reading and art activities, all dalmatian-themed.
