     Monday, November 11


    This is the first of many snowy days ahead. Also, the cold weather seems like it is here to stay. Remember to dress your child in warm clothes to enjoy an outdoor recess. To play in the snow, all students need to wear a winter coat, snow pants, snow boots, a hat, and gloves. Students not prepared to play in the snow will be restricted to play on the blacktop only.


    Recess will be outdoors if the wind chill is 10 degrees or higher. We try to get outside every day and wait until the time of recess to make that decision. Students should come prepared every day to enjoy the outdoor weather.


    PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCESNovember 20th and 21st

    We look forward to seeing all of our parents and guardians at parent-teacher conferences. 

    If your child spends time in more than one household, we encourage all members, from both homes, to attend a single conference time slot.  This allows for a common conversation to take place for the benefit of the student as well as keeps times slots available for other families.  Thank you for considering this option. 

    There is a ½ day of school on Wednesday, November 20th and Thursday, November 21st.  School will be dismissed at 12:05 p.m. and conferences are from 1-4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. both days.

    Please use the link below to schedule your child’s conference.

     District News:

    District Calendar

    The 2020-21 BPS school year calendar is now available on our website at www.birmingham.k12.mi.us/calendar. This coming fall, we will have a pre-Labor Day start, with the first day of school on Monday, Aug. 31 as a half day. This change allows for the last day of school to be June 11, 2021 while maintaining our standard break schedules and fulfilling our State seat time and professional development obligations.

    We know that the pre-Labor Day start may affect summer planning for our families, and we wanted to share it with you as soon as we were able. We continue to diligently work on future calendars and will share that information with our community as soon possible.
