Parents: 
I appreciate your patience and understanding during each of the school cancellations and activity changes this winter. Making the decision to cancel school is never a very easy one to make. While the education of students is essential, nothing is more important than the safety of all students and staff.

 

The district is committed to maintaining a suitable level of instructional time for all students. Per Board Policy, school shall be in session for a minimum of 175 student instructional days per calendar year. BCS has already had six (6) weather related cancellations. As a result, students and teachers have had instruction and activities significantly disrupted. This has left many students and parents wondering if there will be make-up days and when is the last day of school?

 

The last day of school is planned for Friday, May 24, 2019. It is important to myself and the Board of Education to end the school year prior to Memorial Day.

 

A student instructional day will be added on Monday, April 22, 2019. *As with any calendar change due to conditions we cannot control; we will always work with families to find solutions if conflicts cannot be avoided.

 

BCS highly values the Professional Learning Communities (PLC’s) on Friday mornings; however, to assist in recapturing instructional time, PLC Friday late starts on April 26, May 3, May 10, May 17, and May 24 will be eliminated. School will begin at regular time at all buildings on those days.

 

I understand that no plan to regain instructional time is perfect or a match for all individual needs and families, but my hope is this has the least impact on the majority.

 

Sincerely,

Randall Gilson, Ed.D.
