BCS and Covid-19
In March 2020, all of our lives changed. Families, schools, businesses, churches, and organizations of all kinds had to make serious adjustments to their ways of life. At Bayshore Christian School, we used Spring Break 2020 to catapult our school forward like never before. Our teachers converted their entire curricula to online education. Our students in Kindergarten through 12th grade are issued iPads, so they were already familiar with online learning processes. Our Admissions Office created new and inventive ways for prospective families to learn about our school. All in all, we look at the Spring of 2020 as a season of tremendous growth for our school and for our families.
Surfaces are sanitized in between uses and in between groups.
Students and teachers wash their hands several times throughout the day. They wash their hands for at least 20 seconds.
USE OF MASKS
Our students, teachers, and visitors wear masks while on campus. Students take socially-distanced mask breaks when needed. Students do not wear masks during physical activity, while eating, or while napping. For the 2021-2022 school year, parents can contact the school office for a waiver in order for their child to forego the mask requirement.
ATHLETICS AT BCS
While we are requiring masks for the time being, ALL guests are required to wear masks at indoor athletic events. Please see this memo from our Head of School. Thank you for helping to keep our athletes safe!
COHORT GROUPS AND ASSIGNED SEATING
When possible, our classes are set up in cohorts. A cohort is a distinct group that stays together throughout the entire school day during in-person learning so that there is minimal or no interaction between groups. The students also have assigned seating during classes and lunch to aid in tracing should an exposure take place.
One of the most important elements of keeping our school environment safe and healthy is the cooperation of our amazing families. Our families keep their students home when they are ill and come quickly to pick them up if they are experiencing Covid symptoms at school.
