Due to our extended closure BFCCPS will implement home learning opportunities starting on Tuesday, March 17th. The general expectations for learning activities and communication are outlined in grade bands below.  You will hear from your child’s homeroom teacher on Tuesday March 17th with specific plans. 

BFCCPS will be providing these resources so that students have access to and opportunities for learning during our extended closure; students will not be penalized if they do not complete this work. Our goal is to make these activities authentic and also feasible for you to complete at home. Teachers will be in touch via email throughout the closure so please reach out with any questions or concerns regarding remote learning.

We have pushed back the delivery of Term Two report cards so that our team can prepare remote learning opportunities. Term Two report cards will be published to the SchoolBrains Parent Portal on Friday, March 20, 2020 by 3pm.
