Dr. Spelhaug Message to BCSD Parents

Mar 17, 2020

Dear Parents,

We are faced with two great challenges: doing our part to uphold expectations placed upon us to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and to advance, to the best of our ability, the learning of our students. The steps I am outlining here are based on the assumption that we will be back in school on the standard schedule on Monday, April 13th.If that changes, it may well be that these directions will also change.Please note the following updates:

  • We will plan to extend the school year. This would not extend past Friday, June 12th.
  • Wednesday Early Releases to support district professional development will be canceled through the end of this school year.
  • Explorations are underway as to how the district can support your child’s education during this period of closure.Updates will be provided but nothing would transpire until after Friday, March 27th.
  • Please be reminded that district food service is providing breakfast and lunch support starting next week.

Thank you for your patience as our district, community and state work through these unprecedented issues.

Sincerely,

Jim Spelhaug
BCSD Interim Superintendent
