BECS Families:


We want to extend our appreciation to parents, students, families, and the BECS community for your unwavering support of our staff and school during the first semester! We opened the “doors” on August 12 for both in-person and remote learners and have never looked back! The last several months have been some of the most challenging, but also some of the most rewarding. We are sincerely grateful for your patience and your grace during this time. As we head into 2021, we are hopeful that we can return to some semblance of normalcy during the second semester!


Please see the important dates below, including the start of Learning Cycle 4 on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. There is no school for students on Monday, January 4 as the staff will be engaging in professional development. Return to in-person learning will be on Monday, January 11, 2021. Can’t wait to see students and staff back in the building!


Have a wonderful Winter Break!


Happy Holidays,


BECS Administration
