Dear Brooklyn Families,

We are in our third week of the spring semester and as our county health data continues to trend in a positive direction, I am reminded of the persistence and dedication of the Brooklyn School Community. The District expresses gratitude to our students, faculty, staff, and families who have remained patient throughout this school year.

We are off to a great start with much more to do this semester, along with celebrating the various milestones that await our students this spring. We look with anticipation in the coming weeks, as our BCS school employees will receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This is another important step in returning safely to an “All-In” learning schedule for our students and staff.

Some additional information to share with families:

  • Each school’s start and end times will remain the same as they are now.
     
  • Moderate/Intensive Resource Room teachers will reach out to families to communicate the transition to the “all-in” schedule.
     
  • The Brooklyn City Schools will continue to provide a remote learning option for interested families during the second semester of the school year. Students that have selected the remote option will continue to receive instruction in this manner.
     
  • Students are not permitted to move in and out of remote learning at their leisure. Students that have selected the in-person option are required to attend school daily unless there is a legitimate reason for the student absence.
     
  • The District has received confirmation that the first COVID-19 vaccination clinic for Brooklyn school employees will take place on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. The second vaccination clinic for BCS staff is scheduled for Wednesday, March 10, 2021. To ensure that our faculty and staff have the opportunity to receive the vaccine on the assigned date, and account for potential side effects that may result, there will be no school for students on Wednesday, March 10th and Thursday, March 11, 2021. 

While the district continues to closely monitor the county health data, we ask our families to continue to review all COVID-19 prevention strategies. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at ted.caleris@bcshurricanes.org.

Best regards, 
Dr. Theodore Caleris
