Dear BCS Families,

This afternoon the Health Officer of the County of Riverside ordered the closure of all preschools and K-12 public and private schools in an effort to lessen the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Due to this mandate, Bethel Christian Schools preschool thru 12th grade program will be closed to on campus instruction from March 16 – April 3. A separate communication will be sent out outlining how this closure will affect our preschool program.

Beginning next week students will enjoy an additional week of Spring Break while teachers and essential staff meet to develop a Distance Learning/Online Program for our students. As soon as this program is developed, we will notify our students and parents on how to access the online teaching and how to obtain necessary materials such as worksheets, textbooks, etc.
