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
At this time, due to growing numbers of students that have changed to on campus learning , many classes have met maximum numbers for the health and safety of staff and students. Therefore, at this time, we are unable to move anyone from option 3 to option 2 , until the end of the grading period.
SPORTS PRACTICE PICK UP AND DROP OFF
Please pick up and drop off students at the front of the school, not in the bus parking lot. Students that are not in school for the day will need to get their temperature checked before participating each day. Make sure you have cleats, tennis shoes, shin guards and bring your own water.

STUDENT EMERGENCY INFORMATION CARDS: PLEASE RETURN TO THE SCHOOL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
Please make sure you have filled out the student information card and return it to the office as soon as possible. Even if you have filled out one in the past, you still need to fill out one for the 2020-2021 school year.

12th grade will need their second dose of Meningococcal

Parents please review the student dress code with your child. It is located in the BCS Student-Parent handbook. The school reserves the right to approve or disapprove of any clothing, footwear, or accessories. The school dress code will be followed before and after school hours for all school functions, events, and field trips. If dress code is not adhered to, parents will be contacted to bring appropriate clothing to school for the student.
DRESS CODE FOR VIRTUAL AND REMOTE STUDENTS
Please dress appropriately, even if you are in remote learning. Sleep wear, hoodies and crop tops are not considered proper attire. Also be reminded that all avatars and backgrounds are expected to be non-offensive and to meet all expectations of a BCS student class setting.
