SCHOOL CLOSING DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER
To learn if school is canceled due to inclement weather please tune in to WGHP Fox 8, Spectrum News, WFMY News 2, or WXII 12

EMERGENCY INFORMATION CARDS: PLEASE RETURN TO THE SCHOOL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
It is very important we have the new updated student information cards. If there is an emergency this is the only way we would be able to get in touch with parents. Please make sure you have turned your information card into the office.
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.

MIDDLE SCHOOL YEARBOOKS
We are excited to share that middle school yearbooks and 8th grade ads are now available for purchase. To order a yearbook, please go to https://www.yearbookordercenter.com/ and enter the code: 20830. To order an 8th grade ad, please create an account once you have accessed the yearbook order center website. Ads and yearbooks must be purchased together. The deadline to order an ad is January 31st. The last day to purchase middle school yearbooks will be March 15th.

HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOKS.
Yearbooks will be on sale through March 1st.

STUDENTS WANTING TO CHANGE ATTENDANCE STATUS
We continue to address requests for change in attendance status and have reached out to the families who have previously requested changes.  We have limited flexibility with regard to allowing students back into our AA or BB days (Option2).  Currently all bus routes are filled to capacity. 7th grade is also currently filled to allowable capacity.  Please contact Mr. Turner at cturner@bcmschool.org for more information.

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.

BASKETBALL ATTENDANCE GUIDELINES
Due to the continuing COVID-19 restrictions, our home basketball game attendees will be restricted TO 2 GUESTS PER PLAYER until further notice.  As much as we want the BCS community to get behind our teams and as much as we want the student body to support their fellow classmates, the simple reality is the current regulations are going to prevent us from this at the moment.  Hopefully, we’ll get some good news soon to allow more people into our games.  We are letting everyone know because when you see the weekly schedule, like for the upcoming Howl Night Friday, only those who qualify will be able to attend.   FYI for the winter:  Cheerleaders will cheer at home games only and their parents may be at the games to support them.  Due to limited capacity, we are going to have to ask the girls basketball team parents to clear the gym as soon as the girls game is completed and we will ask boy’s parents to wait  to enter the building close to tipoff.  Thanks for your understanding during these difficult circumstances.

DRESS CODE
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.
