• Dear BPS Students and Families, 

    We are both thrilled to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! As you enjoy the last days of the summer break, we hope the resources on this page will be helpful to you as you prepare to start school.

    There are many exciting things awaiting you at your school and the entire BPS community of educators and staff are here to support you every step of the way. We are also keeping a close eye on COVID-19 this school year and have compiled a list of resources for you here to ensure we stay as safe and healthy as possible this school year. 

    We look forward to seeing you and your family thrive this year and to doing all we can to ensure that every student in BPS succeeds. If there is anything more we can do to improve the BPS experience for your family, please find a trusted adult in your school and let them know. The BPS Central Office staff are also always available to you. You can call the BPS Helpline at 617-635-8873.  

    We are both excited to meet you in school and in the community in the weeks to come. Working together - as one community - we will make this one of the best school years in our City’s history.
