Attention HPLC and GSRP parents! On April 19th, MDHHS released an updated order. It requires all children 2 or older to put forth a "good faith effort" to have students wear masks. Beginning on April 26, our GSRP and HPLC students will implement our "good faith effort" and have students masked in situations where social distancing cannot be maintained. Attached is the link to the updated order as well as a document provided by child care licensing. https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/0,9753,7-406-98178_98455-557116--,00.html
Breckenridge Community Schools continue to test our student athletes in accordance with MDHHS orders. The letter from the BCS Board of Education has been forwarded to the MDHHS and posted publicly in an effort to voice the BCS Board of Education's stance on the mandated testing and strain it has on BCS, our staff, students, and families.
Happy Administrative Professionals Day to Ms. Brooklyn Smith, Ms. Erin Mayle, Ms. Cathy Clingenpeel, Ms. Katie Short, and Ms. Jill Crofoot! Thank you for all you do for our staff and students at BCS.
See the Breckenridge Community Schools Board of Education's letter regarding testing of athletes.

The PSAT/SAT test will be given to anyone who is in the building next week. Students on quarantine will not test unless they are 11th grade students. A make-up SAT test will be given to Juniors who choose to take it on April 27th. For 8th, 9th, and 10th graders, testing is not mandatory so no make-up will be given. 6th, 7th, and 12th grade students will meet virtually on Tuesday, April 13.
Attention BCS parents and athletes! Following the current MDHHS guidelines to test on a weekly basis, BCS administration has decided to test all necessary athletes on Monday mornings prior to school. Testing will take place from 7 am to 8 am on Monday mornings in the high school gym. If students ride the bus for morning transportation, they will be able to test on arrival in the morning. If students drive or can be dropped off by parents, we ask that you try to arrive early to space out our testing. This decision was made to ensure that if a positive test occurs, we can reduce the number of students required to quarantine due to following "close contact" guidelines. Thank you parents for your continued support during this process.
