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 email@example.com.
Wishing all of you a pleasant and successful school year!
