Superintendent's Message

October 11, 2023

Dear BU Community,

As construction continues, it is time for us to start planning our move into the new building!

We are excited that we are on schedule to start 2024 in the new facility. To allow this to happen smoothly, we are going to be extending winter break through January 9th – with students returning for classes on January 10th. Staff will return as scheduled on January 3rd to move into the new building, get settled into classrooms, learn the new security and technology systems and prepare to welcome our students.

We will still have our planned days off January 12th and 15th, which will allow us to address any issues that pop up in the new building after having a couple of days to observe the logistics and flow of the new space.

Also, please mark your calendars (tentatively) for an open house and ribbon cutting the evening of January 9th. This will be a time for families and students to see the new building, find their classroom and drop off their supplies.

It’s hard to believe it’s right around the corner! What an exciting time for BU!

Go Rockets!

Jon Parker
