On Friday, September 11, Bayport-Blue Point School District enthusiastically welcomed back students and staff for the start of the 2020-21 school year!

Welcome Back Message from Dr. Hearney

September 10, 2020

Dear Bayport-Blue Point Community,

I, along with the faculty and staff of BBP, could not be happier to welcome the students back tomorrow.  The 2020-2021 school year is shaping up to be a memorable and exciting year.

As a reminder, COVID-19 has played a large role in the changes we will all see this fall.  Many modifications were made to the classrooms to accommodate the social distancing requirements for our students. Although face coverings (masks preferably over gaiters) are required to be worn while on school property, there will be mask breaks throughout the day. In addition, students will become well versed in proper hygiene, with posters around the buildings reminding them to wash their hands and not touch their face.  Another new feature this year is the daily health questionnaire that must be completed before students arrive to school each day.  You can find your school-specific building questionnaire link on the District website or by clicking here: http://www.bbpschools.org/staff/covid_survey.

As we enter the new school year, I ask for your continued support by limiting large social gatherings outside of school.  I also ask that you continue to encourage your child to wash his/her hands on a regular basis, to wear a face mask and to practice social distancing both in and out of the classroom. We know that these three actions, when combined together, will help control the spread of this virus.  The goal for the District is to keep the children in school, and together, with your help, we believe we can do just that. 

Whether your child is returning to full in-person, hybrid or the virtual educational model, we are looking forward to welcoming them back for what will be a different but nevertheless a successful school year. 

Sincerely,

Dr. Timothy P. Hearney
Superintendent of Schools

Important Remote Learning Immunization Information

IMPORTANT: If your child is participating in Distance or Remote Learning he/she still needs to be fully immunized to receive school district lessons and services.

Per the NYSDOH School Assessment and Compliance Unit:

At this time, the NYSDOH is not issuing exceptions for immunizations because of COVID-19. The Department's stance continues to be that students missing vaccine doses for any reason must comply with Public Health Law Section 2164 requirements. Children entering or attending school in New York State, including distance learning, must comply with said requirements.

Celebrating the Class of 2020

Bayport-Blue Point High School hosted a series of four socially distanced commencement ceremonies for its graduating Class of 2020. All of the ceremonies were held on the school’s football field and included speeches by Principal Robert Haas, Board of Education President Michael Miller, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Timothy Hearney, Valedictorian Douglas McDonough and Salutatorian Jacob Lurie. Each graduate was permitted two guests, and family members had the opportunity to bestow Honor Medallions upon graduates who had maintained a GPA of at least 90%.

With great pride, Bayport Blue Point School District sincerely congratulates each member of the extraordinary Cass of 2020, welcomes them to the alumni community and wishes them much success in their futures.
