World Autism Awareness Day

Friday April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day. On this day, we celebrate the stories of people with Autism, their unique strengths, challenges, dreams, and goals. Throughout the month of April we will continue to celebrate our Bakersfield continued commitment to diversity and inclusion by sharing real stories about people with Autism. The purpose is to bring attention to the triumphs, contributions and experiences of people on the Autism Spectrum. By raising awareness and creating acceptance, we can build stronger and more inclusive communities and learning environments for students on the Autism Spectrum. Thank you for doing your part for building a kinder world for people with Autism.

Preparations for a Potential School Closure and Technology Request Form

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Although we have not been provided with any specific information regarding a potential school closure and return to remote learning, we will be taking measures to ensure that we are prepared for any eventuality.  Students will conduct a desk clean out on Thursday, April 1st, and will be bringing home their personal belongings and required learning materials.

If your child requires access to a school Chromebook during a potential return to remote learning, please complete the following linked Google Form by Friday, April 2nd:

In the event that there is a school closure announcement by the government effective after the long weekend, the Chromebooks would be available for pick-up on Tuesday, April 6th starting at 9:00 am.  If a school closure gets announced at a later time, we will use the data from the survey to provide you with a Chromebook at this later date. 

Again, at this time we have no additional information to what has been announced in the media regarding a potential school closure, these measures are to help us be proactive and prepared. 

Thank you for your continued partnership this year under these uncertain conditions.    


Mr. McLean and Ms. Cameron 

Lost Cell Phone

Many of you can appreciate how attached we are to our cell phones… One of our staff has lost a cell phone on school property while busily helping students. If you or your children find this phone this evening while out and enjoying the weather we are having, please bring it to the office tomorrow. It is a black Samsung phone in a black case with dull sparkles on it. The locked screen has a cute ballerina on it and her Mom really wants the phone back.

Thanks BPS!
