Like so many other schools in Connecticut and across the country, Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy in Stamford took heed of the advice of health care officials and, with the health and well-being of its students, staff, and all their families in mind, closed it’s campus on March 11.
But that did not signal even a brief pause in the education of students at the pre-k through grade 12 school. Instead, the school transitioned students to a distance learning program that is off and running, smoothly and successfully.
“Our successful transition from the physical to the virtual classroom is in large part thanks to our team of outstanding teachers who did not hesitate to swing into action and have gone above and beyond to prepare innovative and meaningful online lessons,” BCHA Head of School Jackie Herman told parents in a letter. “[The teachers’] unwavering and energetic commitment to providing students with the kind of excellent education that is the hallmark of BCHA is a testament to our strength as a school.”
