COVID-19 Info

2020/2021

The COVID-19 virus has created new and unexpected challenges for everyone in the community. The health and safety of our families are our top priorities.

Virtual Classes with Optional Stand-Alone Activities Onsite

  • The school will assign students to groups that would attend school one day a week every other week. A group would come to school on Wednesday. The other group would come to school on the following Wednesday and so on.

  • Fewer students would be in the building for greater social distancing and for furniture to be removed to allow for necessary space and reduce unnecessary surfaces and shared items.

  • Sanitation stations (hand sanitizer, gloves, tissues) will be available in every room used by students.

  • Furniture will be arranged so that students are 6 feet apart while seated and markers will be placed on the floor to help with traffic directions in the different rooms.

  • No-touch thermometers will be used to log staff and student temperatures in the mornings as they arrive.

  • Staff, students, and visitors will answer a short list of questions regarding any signs, symptoms or exposure to COVID.

  • Students, staff, and visitors will be asked to wear a mask at all times with the exception of lunch time.

  • When students are not physically in school, they will be expected to attend virtual meetings whether for class, Self-Directed Learning time or 1:1 with teachers and/or learning coaches.

Opt-in element - parents may choose to keep their child at home during Wednesday activities since they will not be required.

Remote Learning from Home

  • While students are at home.

  • Students would meet with their learning coaches virtually at least once a week.

  • Students would attend class and Self Directed Learning virtual meetings and teachers would take attendance during those times.

  • Students would keep an individualized schedule that they work on with their learning coach to maintain consistency in meeting expectations and deadlines.

  • The school would endeavor to make relevant materials and resources available to students in individual packets or through online subscriptions so they can work on hands-on projects at home.

  • Weekly progress reports will be sent to parents at the end of every week.

Dual Credit Courses

Currently onsite dual credit courses through BCTC are scheduled to take place in a hybrid form with students going to class once a week and meeting virtually once a week.
