- Bowling Green R-1 School District Holiday Greeting Card Contest Winner Chosen! -

posted Dec 11, 2020, 9:09 AM by Jordan Watts




The artwork of Bowling Green Elementary fourth-grade student Daymon Jennings will be featured in the Bowling Green R-1 School District Holiday Greeting Card from Superintendent Dr. Matt Frederickson 




Daymon’s artwork was selected from about 30 entries within the grades 4-5 art class taught by Lisa Shimp, art teacher.  Daymon is a student in Mrs. Blankenship’s           4th grade class and was notified today that his artwork      was selected.


















 


Additionally, Bailey Graves, a Bowling Green High School 11th grade student, designed an ornament in her metals class that has also been selected as the Holiday memento to be given to each district staff member this year.  The design intertwines the year 2020 with themes of a mask and toilet paper.  Bailey is the student of her father, BGHS AG teacher Matt Graves.












- Update to recent guidance and Seasonal Reminders -

posted Nov 20, 2020, 3:12 PM by Reese St. Clair

BGR-1 Families and Staff,

As the temperature starts to fall and winter approaches, we want to remind parents how they can stay informed when inclement weather affects school.  School closings, or early school dismissal, will be announced on the district website and sign as soon as the decision is made.  In addition, we will send emails and autodial phone calls and text messages to BGR-1 families.  Our community will also find accurate information about school closings on the following television stations:  WGEM, KTVI (Ch.2), and KSDK (Ch. 5), both TV and online, on the Townsquare Media Quincy/Hannibal KHMO‐AM/KICK‐FM/KRRY‐FM/WLIQ‐AM and KJFM (Eagle 102) radio stations and websites, The Bowling Green Times and Peoples' Tribune online broadcasts, and on our District Facebook page.

When we experience inclement weather conditions, safety is the most important consideration. Parents can help their students and the district prepare. Make plans ahead of time and communicate them with your children so they understand what to expect during an early school dismissal due to inclement weather. Understand that school closings are for the safety of children throughout the district. While the condition of your neighborhood streets may be fine, other areas of the district may be experiencing harsher weather. Please review the information you have listed as emergency contacts and make sure that the numbers are updated in our Student Information System by contacting your building office.

Obviously, we are seeing schools closing through the COVID-19 pandemic at different times, and while our focus is to keep students in school safely, sometimes either teacher coverage issues or guidance from the Health Department from an uptick in cases might cause a building or district to close for a time.  We have an alternative method of instruction plan for this, and it has been approved by our state education department.  Any notification about this type of closing would happen in the same fashion as above.

 

Additionally, we received word yesterday that our state education department and the state health department collaborated and updated their guidance from a week ago regarding the new mask procedures.  Their updated guidance from yesterday states that even though we are not needing to keep people from coming to school if they were a close contact while wearing a mask in a school with a mask plan, we do have to keep them from participating in after school activities and other activities.  So, basically, they are still quarantined, but can come to school.  Obviously, it is frustrating when we get guidance and then it changes a week later.  However, it is what we are required to implement.  We know that our families understand the great sacrifice our teachers and administrators have been making this year.  We all have had to adjust and be flexible when we are directed to an adjusted approach.  It is important through this time to remember that kindness and cooperation go a long way remembering we are all dealing with challenging times.  Our focus is on keeping students and staff safe and in school, and the only way this happens is when we treat others with the same thoughtfulness, cooperation and kindness we would hope for in any situation.

Lastly, rapidly rising coronavirus cases in our community and upcoming holiday travel plans could be the perfect storm to trigger COVID-19 spikes among students and teachers.  We are counting on people to make good decisions to keep ourselves and each other safe.  We do have staff and students who are medically fragile, and it is important to be cautious.  Please remember our mitigation strategies we have sent earlier and help us to keep students flourishing in our learning environment.

Thank you, enjoy Thanksgiving Break, and be well.

“Empowering our students for Life’s Endless Opportunities”

-Updates to Missouri Schools Reopening and Operating Guidance -

posted Nov 13, 2020, 11:53 AM by Jordan Watts

On Thursday, Governor Parson, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (MDHSS) and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) announced a change to the Missouri School Reopening and Operating Guidance, loosening the quarantine rules for students and staff if the school has and enforces a mask mandate. Currently, the BGR-1 policies at our middle and high school allow for us to participate in this update.

 

If a school district mandates that everyone wears masks, and if both the person who tests positive for the virus and their close contacts are wearing masks appropriately during the contact, the close contacts are not required to quarantine. Close contacts must wear masks at all times, self-monitor for symptoms and should quarantine immediately if they develop signs of illness. The person who tests positive is still required to isolate at home.

 

We firmly hope this new guidance encourages mask wearing in schools in other areas of Missouri that haven’t documented cases of in-school transmission of COVID-19. While some counties, including St. Louis County, have decided not to accept the updates from the state level at this time, we in Pike County have.  After a zoom meeting today with our county health department and Pike County area superintendents, since BGMS and BGHS have had a masking procedure in place, we have been given the green light to implement these updated procedures.

 

While we hope these updated guidelines limit the number of students quarantined, this only works if students are wearing their mask correctly when they cannot distance from other students in the classroom, in the hallways during passing periods, or on a school bus.  Please make sure to visit with your students about proper mask wearing, keeping it over the nose AND mouth.  If we have updates to our procedures at our two elementary schools, we will send updated guidance in the coming days directly from the schools.  Additionally, please keep your eyes peeled for ongoing adjustments that may be needed for winter sports communicated by Coach Chance.

 

As you may have seen, our community (really the entire state) is experiencing a bit of an uptick in COVID cases, which is not unexpected this time of year.  This is a good time to remind ourselves to stay diligent in our mitigation strategies and look for opportunity to remind students of the importance of social distancing and active hygiene activities.  Our intension is to stay here and stay open, so our students can thrive.  While we have seen more students returning to the classroom at the end of first quarter, I anticipate even more returning to school for second semester.  We will ask families who are currently learning remotely to send applications for second semester if they are wanting to stay remote for next semester very soon.  However, the team decision has the benefit of knowing how well a student performed first semester if they were remote as a piece of data to assist in consideration of the application.  Be looking for communications from the buildings regarding these applications.

 

Lastly, I have been working on updating our district and individual school information on Niche.com.  Some of you may be aware that when families are exploring places to live, they often look to the internet for information. Our district information is located here: https://www.niche.com/k12/d/bowling-green-r-i-school-district-mo/ and our school pages are linked within.  Much of our school rankings come from testimonials or online reviews.  If you don’t mind, please take a look at the district one and building specific to where your own students attend and consider adding reviews.  We have such a great gem here with great teachers and coaches and program, and the more that know about it, the better! 

 

Thanks for your help with this.

 

Have a restful weekend, and be well.
