BCA COVID-19 INFO
MESSAGE FROM DIRECTOR
Dear Parents/Guardians of BCA Scholars,
As you are all anxiously awaiting the direction of the upcoming school year, I want to express to you that those who serve your children have worked incredibly hard and have put the interests of your children as their priority. I would like to first thank Lafourche Parish School District for their support and collaboration throughout this time of critical decision making. I would like to thank our BCA Board for their unwavering support and for continuing to strive to put our scholars, employees and their families at the forefront of these decisions. I would like to thank our Administrative Staff for their tireless effort in working out the complexities of the details involved in these decisions. As always, I would like to thank our amazing faculty and staff for being open and willing to do whatever it takes for our scholars to receive the best!
After reviewing several options and vetting each of them thoroughly, BCA has concluded that following Lafourche Parish School Board’s Return to School Plan is the best option for our scholars and families as it relates to the health and overall success of this school year.
This plan will be implemented as follows in accordance with the Governor’s declared phase for the state of Louisiana:
Phase 1 – All scholars will learn completely virtually from home.
Phase 2 – Scholars will follow an A/B schedule. Scholars will attend certain days on campus with in person instruction and certain days at home with virtual learning. (We will be providing a survey very soon to determine exactly what this will look like).
Phase 3 – All Scholars will attend on campus every day.
**Parents also have the option to have their child learn virtually from home for the entire school year.
With the guidance of the Board, in collaboration with Lafourche and information from several state entities, BCA will follow certain guidelines including social distancing, frequent hand washing for scholars and staff, sanitizing classrooms and frequently touched surfaces several times throughout the day, new cafeteria procedures, as well as new classroom procedures with the scholars remaining in the same room while the professionals switch to instruct them. There will be daily health checks including daily temperature checks of all scholars, faculty and staff. There will be protocols in place for symptomatic individuals on campus set through the direction of our nurse, as well as through the guidance from Lafourche Parish School District, Children’s Hospital and our local Department of Health.
We truly thank you for your continued support of BCA and together we will get through this!
