BCFC Rules & Safety Procedures:

The safety and well-being of our city’s children is always our utmost priority. We want to ensure every member of our community has an enjoyable experience when visiting the BCFC. We thank you in advance for supporting that goal and for abiding by our rules and procedures.

  • All children in grades PreK to 7 must be accompanied by an adult. This is a space for families and we encourage parents/guardians to get involved in activities alongside their children.
  • Students in grades 8 to 12 can enter and exit the building without an adult. However, as previously mentioned we encourage parents/guardians to join us at the center. All students in grades 8 through 12 are required to show a student ID card upon entering the building.
  • Every parent/guardian must check in at the security desk located at door 22 (door facing the parking lot on North Warren Avenue). Parents/guardians must provide an official form of photo identification, such as a state-issued ID card, driver's license or passport, which will be scanned by our security staff. This is to ensure the safety of all our guests and no exceptions will be made.
  • Guests are prohibited from entering, propping open, or holding open exit doors. As previously stated, all guests must enter through door 22.
  • Guests must stay in the classrooms and spaces specifically designated for community center use. Anyone found wandering the building or attempting gain access to classrooms or offices not designated for community center use will be asked to leave. The staff located at door 22 will be available to provide directions.
  • A criminal record check, most commonly known as a CORI, will be conducted by the Brockton Public Schools for every program leader.
  • A School Police Officer will be stationed at the community center.
