Update 7/24/2020

Dear Members of the Brass City Charter School Community,

I am sharing with you our plan to return to school for the 2020-2021 school year. The one thing we know for sure is that the future is uncertain, and plans are subject to change. As we engaged in many conversations to develop this plan, we always returned to our first priority – the health and safety of our entire community. Per state requirements, we will allow all students the opportunity to return to school this fall. That being said, we will offer a remote program for those who choose to remain at home. Our program will be designed so that there is easy transition from school to home if circumstances change.

The success of the year is dependent on our collaboration. We promise you a student focused, flexible program that will provide the rigorous learning experience that is the hallmark of our school. More than ever, we will rely on the support of all our parents/guardians to work side by side with their children to ensure consistent and engaged participation whether in the physical classroom or at home. It is critical that students continue to experience academic growth as we enter a new school year. In these challenging times, now more than ever, we must all work together towards that common goal.

Of course, everyone is concerned about specific health and safety protocols that will be in place to ensure that the buildings and classrooms are clean and disinfected. We will absolutely follow all public health and CDC guidelines. Details are contained in this plan.

I believe that we will have a productive year as we move forward together - BCCS STRONG!

Dr. Barbara

Update 7/2/2020

Schools have been instructed to plan to have all students return to schoolhouses for full-time instruction at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year so long as public health data continues to support this model. The State’s decision reflects two major themes: health and safety matter most and students thrive best in school. We must be prepared, though, to pivot instantly should the situation change. We have also been advised to develop plans for those families who may temporarily choose not to participate in the return to school.

We will submit a reopening plan to the state by July 24th and at that time we will share details of the plan on our website. Rest assured that we have the welfare of our children and staff uppermost in our thoughts as we develop this plan.

En español
Las Escuelas han sido instruidas que desarrollen un plan para el regreso a clases de todos sus estudiantes para recibir enseñanza a tiempo completo para el comienzo del año escolar 2020-2021, siempre y cuando la data del Departmento de Salud continue siguiendo este modelo.La posición del Estado de Connecticut refleja dos temas principales: La salud y la seguridad tienen máxima importancia y, los estudiantes se desarrollan mucho mejor cuando estan en la escuela. Sin embargo debemos estar preparados para cualquier cambio en los modelos en cualquier momento. En adición se nos ha recomendado que las escuelas desarrollen planes alternos diseñados para aquellas familias que temporeramente decidan no participar del regreso a clase.

Brass City Charter presentará el plan de reapertura en julio 24 2020 y en ese momento compartiremos através de nuestra pagina web los detalles del mismo.
Reiteramos para su tranquilidad que para nosotros es de mayor importancia el óptimo bienestar tanto de nuestros estudiantes y facultad al desarrollar nuestro plan de reapertura Año Escolar 2020- 2021.
