Updated: Important information for parents and students:
Information for remote learning is posted at http://www.rsu71.org/home/remotelearning. BCOPE has their own folder under BAHS and our plan for online classes is now posted.
BCOPE will hold our 'morning' meeting via Zoom on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 12Noon. Links will be sent to all of our students fifteen minutes prior to each meeting and we hope that everyone will take a few minutes to check in, ask any questions, just say hello or address any concerns that they may be having.
RSU # 71 will be closed from Monday, March 16 through May 3, with a tentative opening day of Monday, May 4th. As the situation changes, the district will be updating families via robocalls and email on any changes to the schedule and availability of meals.
Starting March 23, RSU #71 will begin delivering go-bag meals via school buses on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, delivering 2 day's worth on Mondays, 2 days' worth on Wednesdays and 3 days' worth on Fridays. The delivery service is for families who don't have transportation to our feeding sites. Bus drivers and school administrators will be working together to get make the drop-offs, while strictly observing social-distancing protocols. We will continue to be open for curbside pick up of go-bag meals at Ames Elementary, East Belfast Elementary and Captain Albert Stevens from 8:00 am - 12 noon on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Students and parents are encouraged to take enough for two days on Mondays and Wednesdays and enough for three days on Fridays to help get everyone through the weekend.
