Congratulations to the Bradford/Dundee girls softball team on being crowned champions of the Finger Lakes West League. The girls capped off their regular season with a 13-2 record and begin their Section V playoff run today at BCS with a 5:00 PM game against Geneseo. Good luck girls!
Dear BCS Community, Governor Cuomo announced today during his press conference that current masking protocols (must be worn when social distance cannot be maintained) will remain in effect for all students, staff and visitors while they are physically inside a school building. One bit of good news was that when students, staff or visitors are outside of the school building (ex. recess, attendance at a sporting event) that masks are only recommended but not required. If there are any changes moving forward, we will be sure to share this information with our community in a timely manner. Thank you for your continued support and understanding. Yours in education, John Marshall Superintendent
Dear BCS Community, Today at 2:05pm we received the following communication from NYSED regarding mask wearing at school. We must continue with our current mask wearing protocols (must be worn when social distance cannot be maintained) tomorrow and until further notice. Hopefully a final decision on this topic will come on Monday. I’ve attached a portion of NYSED’s response for your review. “SED has been in communication with Executive staff regarding the attached letter from Dr. Howard Zucker, New York State Commissioner of Health. According to conversations with Executive staff, the intent of this letter was to obtain a response from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding differing standards for summer camps and schools; it has not changed any existing arrangements. Therefore, schools should continue to operate under their existing procedures until further notice. No changes have been, or will be, made by the Executive until after Monday June 7 to afford the CDC an opportunity to respond to the letter.” I realize this goes against what was widely reported by many media outlets on Friday, June 4th. I apologize for any confusion or frustration associated with this matter. Please come prepared to follow all COVID-19 protocols, including the wearing of a mask, on Monday, June 7th. Yours in education, John Marshall Superintendent Bradford Central School District

A big BCS "Thank You" to Ms. Gee and Mrs. Stopka for helping to spruce up the area outside our transportation facility. I wouldn't be surprised to see Better Homes and Gardens dedicating a full story to this botanical masterpiece.

The district recognizes the positive impact that the internet can have on our students and families and we remain committed to expanding the reach of internet access to as many homes as possible throughout our community.

Eligible households can also receive a discount of up to $100 for the purchase of a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.
