BCS Communications

Hello, BCS Staff and Families:

Monday, October 5, 2020, is an Optional Teacher Work Day* in which teachers/certified staff may work or take leave. Students who are assigned to Group A will not attend in-person instruction that day. This will be a remote/asynchronous day for all students. Teachers will post Monday assignments in the student Learning Management System (SeeSaw, Google Classroom, or Canvas), and students should work at their own pace to complete assignments. The same procedure will be followed for the Optional Teacher Work Day on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.


Also, as a reminder, we have designated Wednesdays to be remote/asynchronous days in order for all students to work independently or receive additional support, including social-emotional learning or wellness. Teachers will check in with students on Wednesdays for both attendance and academic support. Assignments will be posted in the Learning Management System, and students will work at their own pace to complete assignments.

Finally, the previously scheduled two-hour early dismissal for October 19 and November 2 will now be one hour early dismissals

*By making October 5 a day where students complete assignments, we are fulfilling the calendar law passed by the general assembly this summer that added 5 days to our school year. Our calendar is now 185 days and those extra 5 days must be remote learning days. Over this summer, our calendar committee built these days into the calendar as Optional Teacher Work Days rather than add the 5 days to the end of our school year. We are in full compliance with the law and providing teachers with workdays that they would have in any circumstance.
