Our partners at Hendricks Regional Health have re-opened two local COVID-19 testing locations – in Danville and at 1080 N. Green St in Brownsburg. CLICK HERE to pre-register for a testing appointment.
It’s important to note that BINAX rapid tests performed in a lab (not at home) are only accepted for those currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms who are not in mandatory quarantine or for asymptomatic exposures wishing to return on or after the 8th day after date of exposure. PCR tests are required for asymptomatic exposures wishing to return after the 5th day after date of exposure. Please contact the school nurse if you have questions.
Please note, negative home tests are not accepted for return to school. Positive home tests must be validated by a lab accredited facility in order for the student to avoid future quarantines.

BCSC Food and Clothing Pantry
The BCSC Food and Clothing Pantry launched in the summer of 2014 through a partnership with Gleaners Food Bank. Thanks to the hard work of community and staff volunteers and Applied Skills students in the Collaborators for Success program at BHS, the pantry continues to serve many families in Brownsburg. BCSC families have also contributed donations to help make the pantry a great resource for our community.
The pantry will serve families again on 10/7 from 3pm-5:30pm in a drive thru setting and always on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursdays of the month. Visitors can pull up to door #7 at the ALPHA/Harris Academy building, 725 C South Green Street.
If you have questions about the pantry, please contact Tracy Damone at email@example.com.
