COVID Updates

BBCS will continue distance learning, with the last day of formal distance learning instruction on Friday, June 12 for all grades.

Grades K-7 will have their typical year end wind down activities through distance learning from June 15 - 26.

Grades 8-12 will have their typical Summer School through distance learning from June 15 – 26 for students to improve their marks or ensure passing.

The physical building will remain closed to students with one exception: Grade 12s who are working towards graduation including the numeracy assessment, will be permitted in BBCS to meet with their teachers at prearranged times. 

Plans for the 2020 Graduation ceremony are currently postponed and will be revised as soon as possible given current COVID guidelines. Communication is ongoing between graduates and BBCS staff.

We would like to acknowledge and commend the students, parents and staff for their efforts during this difficult time.

Stay safe & healthy.
