This week is National School Counseling Week! Thank you Ms. Katherine Putcher for supporting our BCS students and school community!
This message serves as a reminder as indicated on the school calendar, that Brocton Central School has an early dismissal tomorrow, January 29, 2021, for the end of the marking period scoring and grading. Elementary school students will be dismissed at 12:00 pm. Middle/High School students will be dismissed at 11:00 am. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s corresponding office.
Today, January 27, 2021, meals will be delivered to all families who have requested such for students in the hybrid or full virtual learning starting at 9:30 am. This time is a half-hour earlier than previous weeks. Meals will include multiple days of breakfasts and lunches. Due to safety concerns, staff will not be walking the meals to the family's doorsteps. A cooler or an individual will need to be at the bus stop location. If for some reason, family's are not able to be at the bus stop, they may call the Transportation Department at 792-2236.
On Wednesday, February 10, 2021, Brocton Central School will be hosting a blood drive through Connect Life.

Good evening, this is Superintendent Jason Delcamp informing you with the latest update that is specific to MS/HS students and staff. We have a number of students and staff that have been placed into quarantine for either being exposed to someone with Covid-19 or testing positive themselves at the MS/HS building. Finding adequate staff coverage for all necessary programming needs have been monumental. I have shared this concern regarding adequate coverage with the Board of Education and we all feel it is best to give families adequate notice if we intend to go full remote. Therefore, the Brocton MS/HS will be full remote on Monday, January 25, 2021. Brocton Elementary will continue with in-person instruction as normally scheduled. Bus runs for the elementary will remain the same. Again, only the MS/HS will be full remote learning on Monday, January 25, 2021. Career and Tech Ed students will have transportation to their CTE programs. CTE students will be contacted by someone from the MS/HS Office or Transportation Office as to their individual pick up times. As of this moment, it appears the MS/HS can resume on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 with our normal Hybrid Learning schedule with adequate staff coverage.

This message is for all families that have requested meal delivery for students who are full remote and on the hybrid learning model. Meals will be delivered starting at 9:30 am on Wednesday, January 20, 2021. This time is a half hour earlier than previous weeks. Meals will include multiple days of breakfasts and lunches. Please have a cooler available at the bus stop if you are unable to meet the staff at the bus stop. DUE TO SAFETY CONCERNS, STAFF WILL NOT BE WALKING THE MEALS TO YOUR DOORSTEP. A COOLER OR AN INDIVIDUAL WILL NEED TO BE AT THE BUS STOP LOCATION. If for some reason you are unable to be at the bus stop, you may call the Transportation Department at (716) 792-2236 to make arrangements for your food to be picked up at the school at a later time, and that is more convenient for you. Our goal is to be sure all students have the meals they need while remote learning is taking place.
This message is to inform all parents, guardians, students, and staff that we have been notified by the Department of Health that four "off-site" individuals have tested positive for COVID-19. These individuals are considered "off-site" due to Brocton Central School being fully remote last week. There was one individual in the Elementary school and three individuals in the Middle/High School. Due to the date of symptom onset, no additional quarantine of individuals is required at this point. The District is working with the Health Department and are taking all recommended steps to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
