Dear BA Families:

Our staff is honored to partner with all of our families. Over the past few weeks we have had an increase in allergies, colds, and strep. As we follow the COVID decision tree, we know that this is hard on our families and our teachers. Your feedback is important. Please know that this challenging time requires our school to follow the executive orders in order to remain with in-person learning. We will work to improve our communication with you as we evaluate how best to proceed with each symptom and the revision of any protocols. AT THIS TIME WE HAVE NO COVID 19 CASESthanks to your support, the work of our staff, and by following protocols. 

This week our Board reviewed our COVID 19 Pandemic Response Plan.We have consulted with the Diocese and our MDH Regional representative to confirm if there are areas within our plan that we can adjust as well as make more clear while ensuring that we are following the mandates required for nonpublic schools. It is our primary goal to keep our students and staff safe while offering in-person learning, and to follow our mission to offer academic excellence and spiritual growth. I understand this personally as my father has Stage IV cancer and I help to care for both of my parents. The Board made recommendations for updating and clarifying our plan. Staff will review as well and our revisions will be complete after MEA. Here are the areas that we are updating:

  • Mask Breaks: Adding mask breaks as our weather cools, which limits opportunities for outdoor learning.
  • Decision Tree: Including the new MDH decision tree that was revised on 8/31/20 (we previously shared this with families and have put on our website, but want to formally add to our plan).
  • Medical Exemptions: Defining and clarifying that BA must follow the mask mandate which includes allowing for medical exemptions where some cannot wear masks. (We do have staff and students who have medical exemptions.) The Diocese did verify that we have to follow the allowance for medical exemptions.
  • WIN for High School Students: During MS Mass Fridays, we do have room for about 30 of our HS students to join us in the balcony for Mass. Students can let their homeroom teacher know if they wish to attend in person. Unfortunately we do not have this space available for MS during HS masses.
  • Overall: We will review our plan to ensure that it meets any further updates while honors both our staff and students. To review our current plan now linked to the mandated mask executive order, please click here.

HOMECOMING & SPOOKTACULAR!We look forward to celebrating Homecoming Week! Please plan to join us online for Homecoming events. Limited tickets for the Homecoming football game are available next Saturday as well. More information on both coming soon. We look forward to celebrating the rich history of BA during Homecoming! We also need every family to participate in Spooktacular and raise $50 a student. You can run in person or virtually on Saturday, Oct. 10. Our goal is to raise $3,000 and have 120 participants. If we reach this goal, our students will earn an early release day. There are additional prizes for individuals and classes, check out the link here.

September 27, 2020

Dear BA Families:

This past week our entire staff gathered for an all-staff meeting to plan, prepare and share as our first month of school wraps up. The dedicated BA teachers are not simply teaching in school, they are teaching our distance learners, cleaning their classrooms multiple times a day, implementing, modeling and reminding students to practice safety. Our staff is tracking, cleaning, calling and responding as questions arise. BA is blessed by our teachers and staff. They are doing an incredible amount of work and I am impressed with all that they do. Please keep them in your prayers. Kind words and treats are always welcome!

Minnesota Fall Sports: Football and Volleyball are back in the fall schedule as voted and approved by the MSHSL after feedback from Minnesota schools. Our first volleyball game is Oct 8 and the first football game is October 10. Public viewing is limited, watch for details. Volleyball games will be broadcast as inside crowds are not allowed. Watch for an updated schedule soon. Coop sports continue this fall. With all sports now back in session, it is important that families continue to practice COVID protocols at home. In order for our school to stay open and games to continue, we need our students and staff to remain COVID free! Limit group gatherings of students outside of school, wear masks while in public, and keep your child home if they have symptoms. Thank you!

Social Media Checks: Please check in with your students’ social media accounts like Tik Tok or Snapchat. We have heard that some students may have shared inappropriate images. We hope this is not the case, but we encourage you to talk with your child and monitor their account. If you have concerns, you may reach out to me. It’s also a great opportunity to review the social media policy in our student handbook with your child. Click hereto access the student handbook.

September 18, 2020

Dear BA Families:

Bethlehem Academy students begin each day with greetings and prayer. Each morning I have the blessing of greeting students at our front entrance and beginning my day with a senior who shares a prayer with the school body and several announcements. We emulate our mission to “empower our students and staff to achieve personal, spiritual, and academic excellence.” With each small act, a smile in the morning, a greeting and a prayer, we create an environment where students thrive and grow in their faith. I am thankful to be a part of the BA mission.

Spirit Fest for Divine Mercy Catholic Church! I hope that you can join the festivities in your car or virtually this Saturday, September 19 from 4- 9 p.m. at Divine Mercy Catholic Church. Purchase a raffle ticket, bid on auction items, volunteer, or send in your donation. We are thankful to our church as an integral part of our school and mission and for the many ways they support BA. Find virtual event information here

BA Board:Please welcome our three new board members: Erin Langenfeldt, Jessica Simones, and Alex Hanson. We are thankful to have their leadership on our Board. This week the BA Board met with the Sinsinawa Dominican Council, our governing body, to review the Board’s handbook, their roles and procedures. The Sinsinawa Dominican Council governs our Board and school leadership through a mission that reminds us of how to make each decision and support one another toward a greater purpose. I invite you to learn more about the Dominican sisters at their website; Review information regarding our board on our webpage here

COVID Update: Each week we evaluate, review and revise procedures based on State, County or in school feedback. We thank you as parents for partnering with us during these first few weeks as we roll out the many protocols to keep our students and staff safe. Your family received a separate email this week sharing important information about how we will handle sick students and determine when they might move to distance learning as well as our updated student item drop off procedure. We have posted this to our COVID page.

Minnesota Fall Sports: Our cooperative teams are off to an amazing start as their shortened season begins. Just this week we learned that the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) is re-evaluating their decision to move football and volleyball to the spring. Each school was asked to respond to a survey confirming that we have football and volleyball and the pros and cons of each season as well as risk. School leadership thanks the many parents and board members who shared their voice with us. The MSHSL Board of Directors has a special meeting on Monday and we will share news with you as soon as we have more information.
