Students and parents can access daily agendas and homework assignments on Itslearning. Parents can login to student Itslearning accounts using their login information.

Sign Up for e-Alerts!

In order to communicate with parents, guardians, students, staff, and community members, BCSC has an e-Alert system that will send text alerts and emails.


When you sign up for e-Alerts, you have the option to select only district messages or messages pertaining to specific schools. You can sign up for as many schools as you would like.


BCSC uses e-Alerts to communicate school closings, delays, early dismissals, and emergency announcements. Depending on the situation, BCSC could send e-Alerts to specific building lists or to the entire district.

ATTENDANCE MATTERS

Students need to be in class to participate fully in the learning experience. As a school, we've set a goal of 98% attendance for our students. Please help us reach our goal by encouraging students to get to school every day they can!


Help us meet our goal and start the school year strong!

1st Period starts at 7:45 a.m.

Reminder to all that our day begins at 7:45 a.m. Students who are arriving to school as a car rider or driver should plan to be in the building by at least 7:40 a.m. in order to fire up their laptop and be seated in class ready to begin promptly!

Stay healthy!

We want our staff and students to be and stay healthy! When we are healthy, we are present and productive!

Remembering to practice simple daily steps can help prevent the spread of germs:


  • Wash your hands!
  • Cover your cough/sneeze
  • Eat well and build up your immune system
  • Exercise to build your body's strength
  • Sleep and get plenty of rest
