Dear Beacon Community:

I wanted to head into the weekend with just a few updates about Reopening BCSD.

Parent/Family Reopening Survey:

You have until Tuesday, July 28 to take the survey.  It should not take long to do and the information you provide helps us plan!  Here is the link: 

Key Things to Know Right Now:

  • Due to social distancing requirements, we will need to begin school using a hybrid model.  The hybrid model will have our students K-12 in school 2-3 days a week and working remotely at home 2-3 days a week depending on the week.  A more detailed version of what this schedule will look like will be shared by July 31.
  • There will be an all remote option for students with health issues or with family members with health issues at the beginning of the year.
  • We will be implementing all of the NY state reopening health guidelines.
  • The plan will be shared with the community on July 31.  The plan will continue to be strengthened and detailed throughout the month of August.
  • We will use all means possible to keep communication channels open with everyone throughout this entire process.  
  • This will be a challenging school year but we will still accomplish great things!


Next Community Zoom Session:

We will have another community zoom session on Monday at 7:00pm.  We will also have on Monday a video of the Thursday session on our website.  The information for the Monday zoom session is here:
