Principal's Message, November 23, 2020

Dear Bolinas-Stinson School Families,

It was a glorious day on the Stinson Campus for our 1st day back on Friday! Students, staff, and parents were ecstatic to be back in-person. A big thank you to everyone for coming together to make this happen for our kids. We will continue to work hard to open the Bolinas Campus so that all of our students will be able to return for in person learning. 

1st Grade 1st Day of In-Person Learning

WORKING TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY

Using Crisis Go & Safety iPass for Daily Health Screening

Thank you parents for pre-certifying your children before coming onto campus and for closely following the drop off procedure for your child’s cohort/class, it helps to make everything run more smoothly. 

Each morning, you will receive an email to complete the required daily health screening for your child/children. This essential pre-visit certification is due by 8:00 AM each morning. We ask that you complete a health report for your child/children each school day, whether or not your child will be coming onto campus. This is a necessary part of BSUSD's daily health monitoring system. Your child will receive a green Safety iPass badge if they are certified to enter campus. 

You may also complete the daily check-in for your child by going directly to the Safety iPass Guardian/Student Login Webpage or scanning the QR Code below: 

  • To log in (Starting tomorrow, November 24th):

    • Enter the Student Account/ Username: This is your child’s BSUSD student email account (Example: michelles@bolinas-stinson.org)

    • Enter the Password: this is the prefix of your student email (Example: michelles) or click Forgot Password.

    • Please contact the school or your child’s teacher if you need their BSUSD student account information.

  • For questions/ issues with logging in or not receiving your daily CrisisGo email

BSUSD Community COVID-19 Safety Handbook & Health Pledge

Please use this link to carefully read the BSUSD Community COVID-19 Safety Handbook.  This handbook will show you how to take charge of keeping your family and your neighbors healthy once students are learning in-person on the school campus. We are asking all BSUSD parents and staff to please follow these guidelines and sign the BSUSD Community Health Pledge to promote a safer and healthier environment for all.
