LEARNING ENVIRONMENT EXPECTATIONS
We want to remind students, parents and guardians that BCS rules apply whether a student is wearing appropriate attire while learning on campus or through online  learning.  This means that the School Code of Conduct and all other expectations apply when students are using the online  learning platform.  Any conduct, attire, or backgrounds used or seen during online learning must comply with BCS rules, ensuring that the learning environment remains safe, neutral, and not distracting or disruptive.  Students and families are expected to ensure that any part of their home/room that is visible during online learning meets these expectations.  If it is not permitted on School property, it is not permitted to be seen while in online learning.  Any violation will be addressed consistent with BCS’s discipline policies. BCS’s intent is to maintain and ensure a safe, nurturing learning environment for all students.  Thank you for your continued cooperation and support!

STUDENTS WANTING TO CHANGE ATTENDANCE DAY
