Spartan families, In order to ascertain the level of need in our community, we ask that you fill out this survey if your Bixby student does NOT have access to the internet and/or a device to complete schoolwork at home. The survey will need to be completed separately for each child enrolled at BPS. Survey link: https://bixbyps.info/techaccess Thank you!
Peach Jar Pro Tip! Parents, BPS "muted" Peach Jar, so to speak, during distance learning with the exception of internal flyers, as to not overwhelm families with more information coming electronically. We will be "unmuting" as of today. Remember, you can control how often you receive Peach Jar emails! See pics for details!
