    School Safety Outside of School

    During the past 10 months, there have been many experts who have explained what we, as citizens, should do to ensure as safe an environment as possible for all. With our school welcoming back students, in November and more in January, the activities we participate in outside of school can have a direct impact on the In-Person Hybrid Learning plans we have worked so hard to implement. Everyone understands that the interactions we have outside of school can and will effect school is proper protocols are not followed. We rely on our staff, students and families to make good choices so the safety of all of those at school and our Big Springs families are not compromised. As a society, we have all been through many challenges this past year that none of us could have every anticipated. Please continue to follow the safety recommendations our county and state have implemented. The students, families and staff at Big Springs thank you for your consideration.
