Dear BCAM Families:

As always, we hope this letter finds you and your family well.  And we hope that everyone impacted by yesterday’s NYC DOE decision to temporarily move to a fully remote learning program is able to find stability as best you can, as soon as possible.  We know this is a challenge for many. 

The mayor/DOE have not yet stated the length of time for this remote learning period.  So we will all move forward and continue our school functions, and just do so remotely.  Our school building is open for essential staff (custodial, safety, food service, nurses, some school personnel), and for essential and emergency functions (device distribution, food distribution, nurse’s care).  Please stop by if you are in need of any of these resources.

The most important thing to know is that our BCAM Instructional Model and Schedule does not change!  We created this model to be flexible in case this move to remote learning happened.  Our BCAM teachers are ready to keep strong curriculum and effective teaching/learning taking place without a hitch.  Students have live classes Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri 9:05am-1:44pm; independent asynchronous work Wed 9:05am-1:44pm; posted assignments and homework ongoing in BCAM Google Classrooms. 

We need all families to partner with us and set up any and all mechanisms that require your student to attend their classes and complete their work in keeping with this schedule!  We cannot have any slippage and we actually need all students in all their classes every day!

And, please consider having your student sign up and participate in the incredible amount of BCAM Extra-Curricular Programs we are offering Monday-Friday from approximately 2:30pm-5:00pm.  These are great programs done via Zoom to fill your student’s time productively, creatively and enjoyably. 

As always, please contact us with any issues, questions or concerns.  We are in this together!   Be well everyone.
