MIAA Update: March 30, 2020

The MIAA met and voted today to push the spring sport start date back from April 27 to May 4. The May 4th date coincides with Governor Baker’s date to  re-open schools in the state.

As was the case before, this May 4th date is tentative and could change.

Campus Update: March 25, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Hope this finds you well.

Further to Governor Baker’s announcement today I wanted to confirm that BC High will be closed through May 3. While the hope is that school will resume on Monday, May 4, it is hard to predict given the rapidly changing landscape.

This situation is, of course, so disappointing for all of our students. However, it is particularly upsetting for our senior students. I want to assure those boys who comprise the Class of 2020 that we are committed to celebrating their graduation, leadership, and all they have given our school, in a meaningful manner. While the current closure until May 4 will impact this, we have already started conversations to make alternative arrangements that are designed to celebrate our seniors, both individually and as group. We acknowledge their disappointment and want to assure them that we will do everything possible to honor their achievement of earning a BC High diploma. As of now we certainly intend to hold the Graduation ceremony as scheduled on Sunday, May 17. We are looking at alternative plans for the senior class awards ceremony scheduled for April 17. We will be in contact with the senior class and their families in the coming weeks.

Again, I would like to thank faculty, staff, and students for their engagement with the remote learning program. We will continue to review and adapt it to provide continuity of learning, but more importantly to ensure that our boys stay connected to each other and their community. We will continue to keep you updated. Thank you for your ongoing support.

What You Can Do To Help

Again, the most important thing you can do to help in these efforts is to keep your son/s home from school if they are running a fever or display any other symptoms of illness, such as coughing or sneezing. As a reminder, we ask everyone to continue to take proactive precautions as recommended by public health authorities to prevent the spread of the virus. Because the coronavirus, in addition to influenza, is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing by infected people, it is important to take the following actions to stay healthy:

  • Wash your hands frequently. Use warm water and soap. This can't be done often enough.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your elbow when you sneeze or cough.
  • Do not sneeze or cough into your hands.
  • Students are required to stay home if they have a temperature, sore throat, achy joints, and/or severe cold symptoms.

Call your doctor if you have questions about your son's symptoms.

Please keep in mind that students can feel anxious and overwhelmed with information and negative news. They need us to be calm and reassuring.

Thank you for helping to keep our students safe and healthy.
