BECS Families:


We hope you have had a relaxing holiday week and that this newsletter finds you all safe and healthy! As you know, we will transition to remote learning for the three weeks prior to Winter Break and for one week following Winter Break. We will return to in-person learning on Monday, January 11, 2021. Staff will be or has already communicated the specific details with families and students prior to the start of remote learning. Please do not hesitate to reach out to teachers or administrators if you have any questions or need assistance. Thank you for your support and patience during remote learning. We are hopeful that this time will allow for the decrease in COVID exposure and COVID cases. We ask for your assistance in helping us return to in-person learning in January.


Take care,

BECS Administration

TEMPORARY OFFICE HOURS

During our temporary transitional period to remote learning. BECS main office will remain open. Please note the following; adjusted office hours are 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM. The office will be closed from 12-12:30 each day for lunch.

Kindness Wall

When BECS students were given a Kindness Chain challenge they rose to the occasion. Students were given 10 days to show acts of kindness and for each act seen, they received a kindness chain link. After the ten days, the counseling department collected the color coded chains from each grade level and created a kindness wall. BECS students never fail to impress us, great job. Don't be the weakest link, continue spreading kindness.
