BCCS Community Update
March 13, 2020
If you are having symptoms we do not want you to visit the buildings and take the proper precautions as suggested by the Sanilac County Health Department below..
Governor Whitmer Executive Order (one of many newspaper articles)
Governor Whitmer ordered schools to be closed until Monday, April 6. The Governor made the school closures effective for this coming Monday, however we took the precaution to close today. We did this to give our administrative team the time today to make the proper decisions to best support our students and Brown City Community.
Statement/Guidance from Sanilac County Health Department
Meals for Students
We will be providing meals for all children 18 and under during this time. These meals will be a pick-up option outside the elementary cafeteria on the dates listed below. We will be providing meals for multiple days, and there will be both a breakfast and a lunch options.
- Monday, March 16--We will provide up to 200 children 3 days worth of breakfast and lunch meals. These will be provided on a first come basis from 4:00-6:00pm.
- Thursday, March 19--We will be providing meals from 4:00-6:00pm.
- Week of March 23--Day(s) times to be provide by the middle of next week.
These meals are available for ALL children 18 or under. The government has made these meals available to ALL children at this time, not just those that currently qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch. This is a great service for all of our families during the next couple of weeks, and it helps all of you during this time away from the normal school setting.
We are not sure what the response will be for this. Mr. Kohler has the food service staff preparing for 200 children on Monday night, and it will be on a first come basis. If we have a great response for the meals, we will prepare more meals for the other distribution dates.
Our teaching staff is already working on some curriculum enrichment for the students during this time away from our normal routine. These enrichment opportunities may be available online or as paper copies. The students/families will be able to stop in both the elementary office and high school office to pick these up on Monday from 4:00-6:00pm or Tuesday from 9:00-10:00am.
We will share more information on enrichment options throughout the next few weeks.
