We are encouraged by the news that educators and school system employees will be included in the next phase of vaccine availability. We have partnered with our state and local health officials to ensure we can provide access to those vaccines as quickly as possible to any of our staff who wish to participate. We encourage our employees to consider the vaccine as yet another way to protect themselves, our students, and our working environment.
Knowing that it would be difficult to devote adequate time and resources to administering vaccines on a large scale, while also supporting students on campus, we have determined that it would be best to designate Friday, March 26 as a virtual learning day for all BCSS students. Students will not report to campus on this day.
Your child’s school and teachers will be communicating information on assignments to be completed at home for Friday, March 26th.
We appreciate your continued support as we take every effort to ensure the safety of our students and staff. It is our sincere hope that this mitigation measure will be a vital step in diminishing the impact of Covid-19 in our schools and community.
