BCA Covid Policy for Fall 2022

Bethel Christian Academy is committed to providing students with a safe, positive, and productive educational experience! It has been determined that being in school engaging with teachers and interacting with classmates is what is best for students. The 2021-2022 school year has been going well with all students in the classroom in person and very few cases of Covid-19 in the school. Mandated safety protocols are being implemented with as much personal choice as possible for parents. Therefore, although the majority of the students are wearing masks, masking is optional.
