Please see the following announcement, which you should have received from City Schools. During this spring break, we hope that students and families are able to spend time together and putting focus on the future and a plan for staying mentally and physically healthy. BDS administrative offices and staff will be offline and doing the same, so we will not be responding to Google classroom questions. Please stay tuned for updates. Also, we are only updating the calendar through March 27 as we are updated on the schedule from City Schools. Please understand that everything noted from 3/30 and beyond is tentative. Peace~
