Parent-Space: Racism in America Next Meetings
December 7th and January 25th
Monday December 7 (6-7pm). We will be viewing a series of short videos to discuss — links to come after Thanksgiving.
Monday January 25th (6-7pm): We will be discussing the book Stamped: Racism, Anti-Racism and You — A Remix by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi.
This book is intended for YA audiences and is a quick, invigorating read — a fascinating (and very engaging) look at American history and racism. The audio book is also excellent and could be a great car ride, at 4:00 in length.
There will be an opportunity to discuss this book WITH YOUR STUDENT, as teachers and students will have the opportunity to read as well (details to come). Get a head start and begin now — same for your child!
The goal of this new monthly study group is to meet (online) and connect with fellow parents to focus on the deeply important work of confronting racism. We aim to gain personal insight about our own explicit and implicit beliefs and values.
We welcome all parents and caregivers to participate. As we work together, we’ll decide what texts or sources about American racism to study: podcasts, poetry, literature, news, comedy, or music.

BCCHS Hybrid Program 2020-2021
As of October 19, 2020, BCCHS was approved for an exception model for our hybrid program. The model is as follows:
We are evaluating in-school attendance and making schedules for hybrid students to receive support when at school. In order to maximize student-teacher interaction, we are making the following adjustments to our in-person cohorts, under this exception model.
For families who select the hybrid model, our in-person schedule will look as follows:
Effective as of November 30th, 2020
Students will either:
|Grade 12||All grades||Grade 9||Grade 10||Grade 11|
When in school:
The following teachers are in person on their grade-level day, and will be available to meet with hybrid students this year in the building, subject to change :

The following teachers are available in school on Tuesdays:
Ms. Nardacci – Spanish 2 & 3
Ms. Hawrylewicz – Art 9 & 10
Mr. Breman – PE 9-12
Tuesdays are optional days for hybrid students. They can attend school on Tuesdays for Spanish help, PE enrichment or art enrichment. Each week, students will be asked to confirm one week in advance if they plan on attending on Tuesday.
Hybrid students can remain in the building until 4 pm in order to attend a virtual club.
Attendance is recorded by students attending their zoom classes. If a student is hybrid, they will be marked absent if they are not in the building, but this is for internal purposes only. We will call your home if you intended for your child to attend school and they are not present, so we ensure that they are healthy and safe!
*families who select the 5 day/week hybrid option will receive confirmation after November 16, and is dependent on the number of students who enroll to return to hybrid.
