Here’s What You Need to Know for the Rest of the School Year

Dear BCPS Families,

Thank you all for your strength and leadership in these tough times, and for staying home and staying safe. In the midst of a crisis, Battle Creek heroes have stood up to help one another and to support the community. I know many of you have questions about what the rest of the school year will look like for your student. We hear you, and we are here to support you.

Please keep an eye out for a letter with detailed information on what the remainder of the school year will look like for your student, which was mailed home this week.

PDF versions of the letters are available here:

AT-HOME LEARNING

Our plan is designed to make sure that students have assignments to work on and learn from and that the relationships between students and their teachers and other staff mentors stay strong. Students and families will receive phone calls from teachers or support staff one to two times per week to assign work, review progress, hear how things are going and check in on families’ wellbeing. For details and grade-level specific plans, please visit battlecreekpublicschools.org/learningathome.

MEALS

With the understanding that school breakfasts and lunches are very important sources of nutrition for many of our families, we will continue offering meal pick-ups through the end of May. For a full list of location and pickup times, please check here.
