It is hard to believe that we are writing the last newsletter of the 21-22 school year. As we close out this school year, we are all reflecting on how thankful we have been to be in person with our students the entire year! We have so much to celebrate and be thankful for this year.
I want to specifically thank our PTO and the committee who organized the 5th grade celebration that was hosted today. We ended up with perfect weather to honor our 5th graders. This group of students is a very special one who are definitely ready for their transition to the middle school. We will miss them all, but are excited for their next step!
This summer we will be working hard to prepare for a great 2022-2023 school year. We will be working hard to review data (student/parent surveys, academic data, etc) in order to create our goals and action plans. BCE will continue to be a busy place serving students with summer club care, multiple community education camps, and extended school year. Our office hours over summer are 8:00 - 3:00, Monday-Thursday. Please note that it is important that you call ahead before stopping in at BCE, as Jackie and I have some vacation planned and many professional development days to attend as we prepare for next year. Please know that we are here to help during those summer months if anything comes up that we can help with!
Thank you again for a great school year and trusting us with your children each day. Have a great summer and we can't wait to welcome our students back in September!

Want to keep your Chromebook over the Summer?
Students who do not want to keep a Chromebook over the summer should contact your school or email us at 112Chromehelp@district112.org or call us 952-556-7777 to make arrangements including completing required forms to drop off your Chromebook and charger.

Hello BCE Families -
The summer watering schedule has been created for families to sign up and help out!
Summer is upon us, and I know I am looking forward to some lazier days, reading books on the patio, and enjoying the slower pace of summer. I urge you to encourage reading in your home by participating in one or more of the summer reading programs available through local libraries and bookstores:

Carver County COVID-19
community levels is listed as “Medium” under the new CDC measurement tool.
Our district is also experiencing a moderate amount of positive cases on a daily basis. Any time you are in public, you are likely being exposed to COVID-19. Since school is a public space, your child is likely being unknowingly exposed to COVID. While we are doing our best to let parents know when their child has a specific exposure, we are reaching a threshold to where we are unable to notify all of the close contacts. Please watch your child for symptoms and keep them home if they are sick. Even if they just have 1 symptom, we recommend testing. The school has test kits available in the main office, let us know if you want some to have on hand. If your child tests positive, please contact the building nurse.
Home COVID tests available
Our school has a number of at-home COVID tests for student use. If you would like a test to be sent home with your child to keep on hand, please contact the main office at 952-556-6600.
Eastern Carver County Schools takes the health and safety of its students and staff seriously. Barring any changes in guidance from state and federal health agencies, the following outlines how ECCS is navigating the 2021-22 school year. The district is taking a tiered intervention approach to its COVID-19 protocols. Layered protection strategies, including regular cleaning, reinforced hand washing and other hygiene practices, will continue to be used in buildings to reduce the risk of transmission.
