First Week of School

BCSC is implementing an innovative approach to help staff and students transition back to school, with a rolling start to the school year. On Monday, August 9, students in pre-K, kindergarten, third grade, sixth grade, ninth grade, and twelfth grade will report to school. They will not report to school on Tuesday, August 10. All other grade level students will report to school on Tuesday, August 10, for their first day. On Wednesday, August 11, all PK-12 students will attend school.

The rolling start is expected to create a smoother transition between school buildings for students and to ensure a successful launch to the school year. The school day will occur as a typical day with transportation, lunch, and regular arrival and dismissal times. The first day would be an orientation day. Students would learn schedules, map out their routes, meet teachers and support staff, learn locker locations and practice combinations, and participate in other activities to help create a smoother transition.

  • August 9 – Grades PreK, K, 3, 6, 9, and 12
  • August 10 – Grades 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11
  • August 11 – All students, PreK to 12
