In the event of a hurricane or other emergency situation threatening southern Brazoria County, BCS will keep parents and students informed via email, updates on the home page of the BCS website, Facebook, Twitter and through Houston area radio and TV stations regarding school operations, including school closure, cancellation of athletic events, special events, etc. To sign up for the BCS Twitter or Facebook accounts, click on the Twitter and/or Facebook logos at the bottom of this page.
We will use KSBJ FM 91.1 as our primary means of radio communication. If BISD closes due to a hurricane or severe weather, BCS will also close. Check with BCS regarding reopening dates following severe weather as we may not follow BISD.
Hurricane Season is June 1 – November 30.
