博愛2021-2022下學期課室上課通知 2nd semester reopening plan

 

博愛下學期課室上課通知

本學年開學前,校方因應疫情,決定上學年網上上課,並在年底前評估下學期課室上課的可能。

隨著灣區合資格接種疫苗的居民,接種率達85%以上,日校亦開放將近三個月未有大規模爆發的報告,5至11歲兒童亦可以接種冠狀病毒疫苗,灣區疫情漸趨緩和。

在學習語言上,學生能夠重回課室學習彼此互動,非常有益處,所以校方期望安排學生回校上課。

董事會在本月的會議中討論了學校重開的議案,並正式通過在安全的情況下,下學期(2022年1月22日) 回到課室上課的決定。

博愛將會分兩階段重開校園,本學年下學期將為第一階段,由各班家長決定是否回到校園或是繼續在網上上課,班代表需要召開一個家長會議,討論並投票是否回校上課,投票結果只容許全班回校或是全班在網上上課, 不可以混合模式上課。各班需要由班代表在11月21日前,向校方提交上課形式結果。

文化班開課計劃將於12月公佈。

第二階段重開將在2022-23學年,所有語言班將回到學校上課

學校將提供相關預防病毒用品及指引,讓學生,老師及家長安心回校上課。

學生進入課室前需要測量體溫,在學校裏需要配戴口罩,老師們需要提供疫苗接種證明。如果各班需要值日家長,值日家長亦需要已接種疫苗,學校稍後會公佈預防病毒用品及指引的詳細內容。

學校期望可以進一步回到從前的學習模式,例如: 老師和學生在課堂上的互動。

學校仍將繼續關注疫情和政府的指引,並作出適當的調整。

BCS School 2nd semester reopening plan

Before the start of this school year, BCS decided to continue online learning through the first semester in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

As the vaccination rate of eligible residents in the Bay Area has reached over 85%, day schools have also been open for nearly three months and no large-scale outbreak has been reported. Children aged 5 to 11 can also be vaccinated against the coronavirus. The pandemic in the Bay Area is gradually easing.

Face-to-face learning is especially important when learning a language, students can definitely benefit from the interaction with their teacher in the classroom, therefore, BCS encourages students to go back to school.

The BCS board discussed the school’s reopening proposal at this month’s board meeting, and passed a decision to reopen face-to-face learning under safe conditions in the 2nd semester (Starting from January 22, 2022).

BCS will reopen the campus in two stages.  Next semester of this school year will be the first stage. Parents of each class decide whether to return to campus or continue to attend online classes. Class representatives need to hold a parent meeting to discuss and vote on whether to return to school.  The decision can only be the whole class going back to school or the whole class continuing online learning, no hybrid mode classes. Class representatives need to notify the school of their decision before November 21.

Culture classes reopening plan will be announced in December.

The second phase will be in the 2022-23 school year, and all classes will return to school.

The school will have safety measures and guidelines so that students, teachers and parents can safely attend classes in the school.

Students need to take their body temperature before entering the classroom, wear masks on campus, and teachers need to be vaccinated. If the class needs a room parent, the room parent also needs to be vaccinated, the school will announce the details of the safety measures later .

The school hopes that we can slowly return to the past and see the interaction between teachers and students in the classroom.

The school will continue to closely follow the pandemic and government guidelines, and make adjustments to our decisions if appropriate.

Please email bcs_board@yahoo.com for questions.

Principal’s Message 8/23/21 Leo Fu

Dear Berryessa Chinese School Families,

Welcome back to BCS school year 2021-2022.  The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges to BCS.  Over the summer, the school has been closely monitoring the pandemic development.  With the surge of the delta variant cases in Santa Clara county and the majority  of our students not yet eligible for vaccination, it is still unclear when this current wave of pandemic will be behind us.  The health and safety of our students, parents and teachers are our top priorities.  The school board decided to extend the distance learning through the first semester of this school year.  Our target is to resume face-to-face teaching in the 2nd semester if it is safe for us to do so.

BCS is a non-profit organization and we are thankful, especially for our enthusiastic parent volunteers and hardworking teachers. Without their contributions, BCS would not have had such an esteemed reputation.

On behalf of BCS, I warmly welcome you all back and those who have just joined the BCS family this school year. Thanks for your trust and your support! We will continue to do our best and to be the best for you and your children.

For this school year (2021-2022), the first day of school is on September 11th (Saturday). I hope we are all ready to accept new challenges. We can do it together!

This school year, BCS has made some changes and hope to have your full support and cooperation. The enclosed package includes important information from registration and curriculum departments. Please read them carefully before school starts. School will send textbooks distribution arrangements in the following days.

You can visit our website at www.bcs-usa.org for more information. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at bcs_board@yahoo.com.

Wishing all of you a pleasant and successful school year!

Yours sincerely,

Leo Fu
Principal, Berryessa Chinese School
