REMOTE LEARNING DAY for All Berkeley County Schools, PreK-12 on Friday, February 19th.
As winter storm Uri begins exiting our area, below freezing temperatures remain forecasted overnight with a possibility of light accumulations. For the safety of students and staff, we will observe remote learning across the district on Friday, February 19th. BCS Offices will open on a 2 hour delay. Special thanks to maintenance and custodial staff for their work in checking and preparing schools and offices for opening.
The recent series of weather events, especially for our Texas neighbors without water and power, has required great perseverance, which by the way is the name of the NASA rover that landed on Mars today. If you have not taken the time today to learn about Perseverance, the most technologically advanced robot that NASA has ever sent to the red planet, now is a great time to do so.
Perseverance: persistence despite difficulty. Couldn't that be the theme for our Covid-19 experience. I want to thank our entire school community, students, staff, families and caregivers, for your persistence during the past 12 difficult months. Together we have persevered and will return to 5 days of brick and click instruction on Monday, February 22nd.
Stay safe. Be well.
