Message from the Superintendent
March 13, 2020
Dear BCIT Parents/Guardians:
It goes without saying that the COVID-19 virus has created difficult challenges for you, for our students, and for the entire BCIT community. Uppermost in our minds during these difficult times is the safety, security, and well-being of our students and staff. That is why, after careful consideration it is our decision with the support of the Burlington County Department of Health, that we are announcing the temporary closure of the Burlington County Institute of Technology.
Beginning on Monday, March 16, 2020, students will no longer report to campus, and they will begin to utilize the learning materials that were sent home with them earlier today. We expect this remote learning plan to be in effect through April 9, 2020. All students and staff will return on April 20, 2020 after the conclusion of Spring break. During this time, all student activities are cancelled.
We understand the impact that this closure has on our BCIT District population, and we will do all that we can to work with our families. During this time, we will remain in close communication with you through the various platforms such as Google Classroom.
In an effort to fit each student’s individual goals and objectives, every teacher has provided a layout of instruction using Google Classroom. We are fortunate at BCIT to have a Chromebook and Google environment whereby instruction may be delivered through Google Classroom and project-based learning can occur. Staff is available to assist parents and guardians remotely in the event that there are questions with implementation.
During the closure, our custodial staff will continue to carry out our enhanced sanitizing process with the recommended BruTab6S Effervescent Disinfectant and Sanitizer to maintain the highest preventive measures.
Should you have any school related questions, please feel free to contact the following staff:
