Dear BCS Families and Staff,

The last few weeks have been a challenging time for all of us. While the spread of the coronavirus has created an unprecedented disruption and hardship for our community, I am amazed by the resilience of our staff and families. Throughout this crisis, the health and well-being of our BCS family has been our top priority. Thank you to all of you for your hard work in maintaining that standard.

I want to wish you a restful and relaxing Spring Break. While virtual instruction will be on a break, our meal program and supply deliveries will continue in order to serve our students and families during this difficult time. For a full list of meal sites and other services, please visit Response.buncombeschools.org.

Again, thank you for continuing to shine and setting a wonderful example for other school systems in the state. I couldn’t be more proud. While the future may seem uncertain, I am confident that, together, we will weather this storm.

Enjoy Spring Break and we’ll resume our BCS Virtual Days on April 13, 2020.

Best,

Susanne Swanger
Associate Superintendent

** Here are some important resources we wanted to pass along if you are having difficulty. NAMI, the National Alliance of Mental Health, has made its Family to Family program virtual, via Zoom.

This free program is for families and caregivers of individuals with serious mental illnesses, including depression and anxiety. It is designed to facilitate a better understanding of mental illness, increase coping skills, and empower participants to become better advocates for their family members. The instructors are trained volunteers; the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA) has designated this an evidence-based course.

You can find out more about the program here.
Families can sign up for the program here.
