A Message from the BLC Team
When Governor DeWine closed Ohio schools in March, the BLC followed that guidance to keep our tutors, students, and staff safe. When our physical locations closed, we began supporting our learning teams with distance learning opportunities. Distance learning has ensured that our students could learn without interruption, and it will continue to provide a way for learning teams to connect from their own homes.
As happy as we are that our distance learning will continue, we are ecstatic to announce the reopening of the BLC! To reopen safely, we carefully developed a COVID-19 safety plan that follows the Ohio Department of Health’s guidance. We discussed this safety plan with the Ohio Department of Health to ensure that we are doing everything we can to protect our entire learning community.
When you enter the BLC, you’ll notice changes as we follow this safety plan. We’ve rearranged furniture to ensure social distancing and we’ll be disinfecting surfaces throughout the day. We’ll also be wearing masks. When you come to the BLC, make sure you wear a mask. Our students will be wearing them too so that we can all keep each other safe.
These are big changes that can feel intimidating, but they are a way for us to show our love for each other. Please don’t stress about not knowing what to do when you enter the BLC; we’ll be there to walk you through these changes.
Here are our important dates:
We look forward to seeing everyone as soon as we can.
Take care, and stay safe. Literacy changes lives, and so do you!
Your friends at the BLC
