Day Care will be open for the remainder of the day, but students in kindergarten through eighth grade who are staying must bring a sack lunch. (Pre-K and under will be provided lunch as usual.) 
We hope your children will enjoy this very special week! We also thank you, parents, for entrusting your children to BCA's child care and school. Our goal is to teach the love of Jesus every day that they are here, and it is our hope that they will carry that love with them throughout their lives.
Help us Keep Students Healthy 

We realize that this is not our policy, but we are experiencing multiple children and staff coming down with the flu. Therefore, to limit the exposure to our children and staff, we are asking you to keep your child at home until he or she is symptom-free for at least two days.

For this reason, we are asking all of our parents, before returning your child to school, please see a doctor. Have your child's physician/pediatrician write a note with the date stating when he or she may return to school. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Talk to your doctor about best practices regarding the flu and limiting exposure to others.
