Safely Welcoming Students Back to Campus
Faith & Families: Together We Fly

2020-2021 Bell Schedules

Dear Bethlehem Academy Families:

After extensive preparations, the Bethlehem Academy team welcomed students back to campus for in-person learning this fall. Staying on campus relies on all staff, students and families adhering to the new health and safety protocols. We value the rich partnership we have with our Cardinal students and families and promise to stay true to our mission: “To empower our students and staff to achieve personal, spiritual and academic excellence.”

We continue to update protocols in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation. See below for important updates, including our detailed BA Pandemic Preparedness Plan, how to partner with us if your student is sick or needs to be quarantined, and updated facemask protocols. As the school year progresses, BA will adapt our learning environment and move to alternate learning models throughout the year, as warranted by COVID health and safety requirements.

As we come back together in prayer and thanksgiving, I ask for your continued prayer, understanding and partnership as our year progresses. In my first year with the Bethlehem Academy community, I seek to live out our mission and continue to “Challenge ourselves to love as Jesus Christ loved, to lead, to serve, to inspire and to seek the truth: Veritas.”

Reeder, President/Principal

No-Contact Item Drop Off Policy
Due to COVID-19, we are strictly limiting the number of visitors in the building. Instead of bringing items forgotten student items into the building to our front office, we have placed a table just inside Entrance C (the door closest to our visitor parking spots) for student items to be dropped off. The table will be checked frequently, and items delivered to your students. Labels and pens are available. Please fill out a label, place it on the item and leave it on the table. We will take it from there. Thank you for helping us keep students and staff healthy during the school day!
