MOVING FORWARD WITH INFLUENCE
As we find ourselves in uncharted territory, BYLP is watching and monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic closely. There are many uncertainties, canceled events including sports, proms and graduations. It looks as though this virus has robbed the Class of 2020 of the historical rights of passage associated with senior year. BYLP is committed to hosting the Black Prom AND the Black Graduation as planned. Once the restrictions are lifted and when it is safe to do so, we will reschedule these very important events. I encourage you all to use this time to relax and regroup, spend time with your children. Find out what they enjoy and where their passion lies (but adhere to the social distancing recommendations). Take advantage of the distance learning resources available to you. There are live concerts and dance classes from homes being put on via Instagram. There are websites/apps offering free accessibility like Scribd's Library, Crash Course on YouTube, Teach Your Monster to Read and ABCmouse.com, just to name a few. Find those distance learning resources HERE. Finally, know that we are talking to the school districts and trying to ascertain what the next steps are going to look like. Until we see one another again, be extra patient with one another while we learn to embrace a new normal.
