Learning at Home (Grades 9–12)

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 for Grades 9–12

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. Work will take place online, using Google Classroom and Clever (see below for login instructions). 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.
