Learning At Home

Update Your Contact Information in Skyward Today

As part of our At-Home Learning Plan, teachers and staff will be reaching out often to assign work, check in on families’ wellbeing, and to make sure the relationships between students and staff stay strong. It is important that we know how to get in touch. Please take a moment this week to update your primary phone number in Skyward with the number you would like teachers and staff to use to contact your student.

About the At-Home Learning Plan

BCPS has put in place a robust At-Home Learning Plan, which includes both online and offline opportunities for students to continue to learn and stay connected for the remainder of the school year. Parents and students should expect to hear from their schools at least twice per week, through the end of May.

Remote learning for high school students will focus on online learning, and for pre-K–8 students will focus on using packets that have been mailed home, with digital learning as a supplement. If you have not received any at-home learning packets by mail, please update your address using the Google Form here. You can download the packets for printing on the grade level-specific at-home learning sites or pick up packets for your student at the BCCHS meal pickup location on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. If you are unable to go in person, please contact (269) 245-6129.

  • Pre-K–8 work will center on paper packets. Teachers will be assigning at least one assignment in math and English language arts from the packet each week. Families should feel free to do more when they can.
  • Elementary and middle school teachers may send additional online activities to supplement packet work, using Google Classroom, Clever, or Seesaw. (Seesaw is for elementary students only. Clever and Google Classroom will be used by all grades. Login instructions found here.)
  • Grade 9–12 work for BCCHS students will take place online, using Google Classroom and Clever. Students will receive at least one assignment each week for each course they are enrolled in.
  • Teachers of elective courses like art, music and physical education can share activities and lessons on digital learning platforms as well.

We know you have many questions, and we are here to answer them to the best of our ability. BCPS is here to support your student through these trying times as we continue through uncharted territory together. If you have any difficulty accessing at-home learning resources, please reach out for support.
