Dear Bolinas-Stinson School Families and Community,
I hope you are doing well and able to embrace a more relaxed summer pace. The BSUSD Board of Trustees, the Reopening Task force and BSUSD Staff and administration have been hard at work on plans for the upcoming school year.
BSUSD SUMMER LEARNING PILOT PROGRAM
After overcoming many hurdles, we were able to offer the BSUSD Summer Learning Pilot Program to a very small number of students who were recommended by their teachers. This program is being run by Anna Tosick, our wonderful 3rd and 4th grade teacher last year. Anna brings her enthusiastic spirit and innovative teaching style to make learning fun for the students, in spite of observing all necessary health and safety protocols during this summer pilot.
This program is the culmination of much hard work and collaboration by our amazing BSUSD staff, with guidance from MCOE and our very own BSUSD Health and Safety Task Force subcommittee. The Summer Learning Pilot Program is focused on providing in person individualized reading and math instruction for a three week period. The new pilot program, while providing summer academic support for students, is also giving us valuable information and a working model for connecting with students in person during the pandemic. The program started yesterday, and is scheduled to run through August 4th.
