BCSD Schools Closed Through April 30
Due to COVID-19
- Buildings Accepting Phone Calls
Although many of our staff are working remotely, we do have administrators and secretaries working in our buildings during the closure. You are welcome to call your school or our district administration center (563) 359-3681 with any questions you have. Please don't come to our buildings without calling first.
- Pick-Up Meal Support
While we are closed due to COVID-19, Bettendorf Community School District will be providing free meals to children age 18 and under. Meal pick up is a drive–through grab and go Monday through Friday, 11:30 am – 1 pm, at Bettendorf Middle School and Neil Armstrong Elementary. In an effort to keep our staff safe and limit person-to-person contact, we ask that those driving to one of the feeding sites open the trunk of their car, or leave a seat open where staff can place the food. Thank you for your cooperation!
- Academic Support Opportunities
The district is providing academic and social-emotional support opportunities to students/parents. District faculty and staff are organized into deployment teams along curricular lines to coordinate these resources.
- BCSD Schools Closing Game Courts & Playgrounds
As a part of continued community efforts to fight the spread of COVID-19, the Bettendorf Community School District is joining our municipal partners in closing game courts (basketball, tennis, pickleball, etc.) and playground/play structures. The district had previously closed outdoor athletic facilities (track, fields, diamonds, etc.).
- Social-Emotional Supports
- Medication Pick Up
Any parent needing to pick up student medications housed in our nursing offices should contact your child’s school office, during normal office hours to set up a time to get the medications.
