The School with HEART!


Beginning tomorrow, we have asked all teachers to post the following three items on their course landing page:

- Google Meet Links

- Daily Schedule

- Daily Checklist of Assignments, Tasks, or Activities

We recognize that this extended eLearning is difficult for our families who are blessed to be working in these difficult times. We do request your assistance - please monitor the Google Meets and itslearning communication. Students are getting on Google Meet links after the teachers leave, and this is not safe. Additionally, itslearning messaging is meant for academic conversations ONLY! This is not a chat room for students to talk with other students. It is to be used for questions or additional support from our staff.

Thank you for your help! As always, we are here to help in anyway possible!

Mrs. Gant - 812-565-9155

Mr. Shaffner - 812-565-9028

Mrs. Boatright - 812-373-6922


Please send us your Spirit Day pictures and videos to Mr. Shaffner at 812-565-9028.

Mrs. Gant is ready for Wednesday and Thursday! Mrs. Boatright may have won the day with the turkey suit last Tuesday, but Mrs. Gant is stepping up her game this week! :) We hope you will join the fun with us!

We are happy to announce that our 20-21 Yearbook is now on sale online!

To order, visit www.inter-state.com/yearbook and enter our school code of 55797W.

Once online, you will have TWO options for purchase:

1. Full Color Yearbook with your child's NAME imprinted on it = $15.00

2. Full Color Yearbook with your child's NAME & PICTURE = $20.00

Order by January 29, 2021 for these two options!

Between January 30 and March 1, you can still order a yearbook for $15.00, but the personalization of NAME or NAME & PHOTO will no longer be options.

We are awaiting word from the EBL Board as to the official update for our season. As soon as we receive this word, we will notify our student athletes and families. Should the season be canceled, we will issue refunds to our families who purchased season passes - once we receive the balance that we are required to pay for the games we did play. This balance includes referee costs and other fees. We know the amounts you paid would be very helpful in the upcoming holiday season, so we will be working diligently to get these refunds processed just as quickly as we can - once we have the official word from the EBL Board. Thank you for your patience!


Below you will find the BCSC Parent eLearning Handbook in English and Spanish. These are great resources to assist parents as we navigate the virtual instructional model. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at school if you have any questions or need clarification.


All prizes have been ordered! We are currently waiting for items to arrive here at Taylorsville. The original plan was to distribute these items before Thanksgiving Break, but due to eLearning, we will wait until we return to in-person instruction after Thanksgiving. Thank you for your patience with this.

Mr. Shaffner is coordinating with Chick-Fil-A to create a plan for lunch with students who raised $100 or more!


The Bears Cafe will be open for WiFi access for students to complete eLearning tasks. The cafeteria will be open from 9:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m. and 12 p.m.- 3:00 p.m. daily.

Students may NOT be dropped off for this. Parents or guardians must stay with and supervise their children while they are working in the cafeteria.


With the shift to remote learning, the eLearning Hotline will be available at 812-418-0252 for parents to call with issues or concerns. You may also email elearning@bcsc.k12.in.us if email is a better option to communicate.


BCSC does not have any more hotspots to pass out to families. With hundreds in student hands, the technology department has exhausted their resources. If you are still in need for WiFi access, please consider coming into the Bears Cafe. Please coordinate with Mrs. Gant or Mr. Shaffner if 9:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m. and 12 p.m.- 3:00 p.m. do not work for your schedule.


Below are instructional videos and written instructions with how to use your child’s access itslearning, general eLearning information, and how to access Google Meet, the online video conferencing program used by teachers.
