Meanwhile through the tireless effort of our teachers and staff, BCS has successfully transition of our language classes to online classes with over 80% attendance. I like to take this opportunity to thanks all of our teachers who had to adapt and innovate so quickly in order to meet this new challenge, they are dedicated to continue our student’s education even in this difficult time.

I am grateful to have so many talented staff members especially our Language Deans, Asst. Deans and parent helpers who worked together to get our students online so quickly. I especially want to thank BCS IT William Hui and ANCCS IT Adam Cho (former BCS parent) for using their expertise in getting ready our online tools and ANCCS President Sandra Su for her help in providing so many training classes for our teachers.

BCS is highly aware of the outbreak of the Coronavirus in Wuhan China.  The situation is still developing and we will continue to monitor and pass on any new information.  We asked that everyone take a common sense approach and keep your child at home if they are sick.
Please note that there is important new information for your review:
1. If you have students or staff who have been in Hubei province within the last 14 days, please ask them to immediately return home and call the public health department during regular business hours (408-885-3980, M-F 8-5) so that we can provide guidance on monitoring themselves carefully for symptoms for the 14 days since their last day in China.
a. Family members of travelers who visited Hubei province within the last 14 days do not need to quarantine at home, but they should also monitor for symptoms and avoid attending large gatherings.
2. Students or staff who have been to other areas of mainland China (this excludes Hong Kong) within the last 14 days should also not come to school. They should monitor themselves for symptoms for the 14 days since their last day in China. Per federal guidance being released today, they should also call the public health department during regular business hours (408- 885-3980,
M-F 8-5) for further guidance.
In either case, if they become symptomatic within 14 days since their last day in China with fever (including chills or night sweats), cough, or shortness of breath, they should call a healthcare provider and let them know their travel history and symptoms.
