Dear BCECC Families,

Spring Break is almost here! March 9 is our last day of school before Spring Break. We return to school on March 20. We are celebrating READ ACROSS AMERICA WEEK March 6 - 9 which coincides with our Spring Book Fair. You will find more information about READ ACROSS AMERICA WEEK and the Book Fair below in the newsletter.

Our next Remote Learning Day is March 2. We will have Parent/Teacher Conferences along with the Remote Learning Day. You will find all of the Remote Learning Days listed in the Mark Your Calendar Section of this newsletter. Please take time to read the newsletter and check out the Counselor's Corner section which always has great information.


  • Per our student handbook, children must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to schoool.
  • School starts at 8:45. If you arrive at 8:45 or after, please park and check your child in through the office. If you drop off at BCIS, you must drop off by 8:40. Students getting dropped off at BCIS close to 8:45 are arriving to the ECC late and without safety procedures in place. Barricades are taken down at 8:45 and supervision of the crosswalk stops at 8:45. Because we want to ensure the safety of our students, students who arrive at BCIS in the car rider drop off line after 8:40 will be redirected to drop off in the ECC parking lot.

Before/After School Schedule:

8:20 Doors Open

(Students will either go to the cafeteria for breakfast or go directly to their classroom.)

8:40 Breakfast Ends

(Students should be at school by 8:35 if they wish to eat breakfast.)

8:45 School Starts

3:40 Car Rider/Daycare Dismissal

3:45 Bus Rider Dismissal

Student attendance is strongly correlated to academic achievement, graduation rates, and postsecondary success. Research indicates that schools and districts can have an impact on students absenteeism rates. Chronic absenteeism, which represents lost instructional time for students, is gaining nationwide awareness.

Chronic absenteeism is one of several indicators on the Oklahoma School Report Card, which is designed to give parents and communities an annual snapshot of student learning, progress, and achievement at the local level. Including chronic absenteeism on the new school report card will highlight local efforts to prioritize student attendance.

How does the State of Oklahoma define chronic absenteeism?

A student is considered chronically absent after missing 10 percent or more of school days. This includes both excused and unexcused absences.

Chronic absenteeism looks beyond truancy and average daily attendance to shine a light on how missing school days can affect an individual student's path to success.
