BCSC Statement re: School Closure through May 1

March 19, 2020

BCSC Statement (Spanish translation)

The unprecedented nature of the coronavirus pandemic leads us to constantly evaluate our decisions and make adjustments.  With this in mind, the following represents our most current updated information:

-Governor Holcomb today announced that ALL school corporations in Indiana would be closed through at least May 1, 2020.  Therefore, BCSC is closed and all school-related activities canceled until Monday, May 4, 2020.

-With the extended school closure, waiver days will now be utilized and the schedule for eLearning days modified.  Beginning next week and throughout the closure, waiver days will occur on Mondays and Fridays and eLearning days implemented on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.  Such an arrangement allows us to get through the end of the school year, if necessary, without having any make-up days and provides our teachers with additional time to prepare and assess as they deliver quality instruction to our students.

-Although there is a change in the eLearning days, meals for students WILL continue to be offered Monday through Friday at the previously listed sites.

For additional information:

-School specific questions can be best addressed by contacting the building directly or messaging the classroom teacher.

-Anyone (students, parents, staff members) with additional questions regarding eLearning should call our hotline at 812-418-0252 or email elearning@bcsc.k12.in.us.

-Anyone with questions regarding our distribution of meals can contact our Food Service Department at 812-376-4462.

Parents –

We recognize the challenges this extended school closure creates and hope that you know we are here to support you.  Our students, YOUR children, are the most important assets in this community and together we will take care of them.  TOGETHER…WE will continually check in and ask YOU to let us know when additional support is needed.
