RETURN TO LEARN 2020-2021 UPDATE

Virtual Training Support for Parents - Online Learning

Dear BCSD Parents/Guardians,

The district will be providing a virtual training session that will support parents with online learning. This training will include an overview of online learning that includes information such as accessing grades, receiving notifications, and navigating the Canvas homepage. The training session will be available prior to October 1st.

We understand the many frustrations caused by recent technical difficulties and will provide ongoing support throughout the Canvas implementation. If there are topics or questions you would like addressed during the training, please click on the link below and complete the form by Thursday, September 24th. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to provide our students with the best educational experience possible.

Keeping our BCSD Community Informed
COVID-19 Status Update

In an effort to keep students, staff, parents, and the entire community aware of how COVID-19 is impacting our District, we plan to share as much information as possible while protecting the privacy of those affected. Following the direction of the U.S. Department of Education, we will release details by District and not by building to ensure the privacy of our students and staff. Please note we will update this data at the close of each week, and you will be able to view it on the District Return-to-Learn Webpage.


BCSD COVID-19 Status Update
Sept. 14 - 18

Sept14-18.jpg

When the District is notified of a positive COVID-19 case through the health department, parent, or staff member, the building principal and nurse will begin to assist the health department in determining any individuals who may have been in close contact with the positive individual. For all close contacts, the health department and/or the school will be in contact with the family.


Free Breakfast & Lunch for All Students

We are excited to share that the USDA is extending the Summer Food Service Program through Dec. 31, 2020, or while funds are available!

This means we will be able to provide FREE breakfast and lunch for every child between the ages of 1 - 18 years old. This includes students enrolled in the Bettendorf Community School District, as well as any other child aged 1 - 18 years. Learn more
