Intent to Return Family Survey (for current PreK-7th grade families)

Hi families! This is that time of year when we survey families to see if people are planning on staying at BMSS for next year or not. Although we hope that you choose to stay, we know that some families move or apply for other magnet schools for their children. To help us with planning and the upcoming lottery, please take a few minutes to complete this short survey to let us know what your intention is for the 21-22 school year. Thanks! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdWRym_eU_eRbeuobJ4Js6a9wSG-7tO9xKeby_lvAf27zAADQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
