Daily Announcements

To All Members of the BFA Community,


Due to the number of school cancellations this winter we will have school as usual on Friday, April 21, 2017. Currently, the last day of school will be June 22nd. Graduation will be on Saturday, June 17th as scheduled.


Please contact the Main Office at 527-6555 with any attendance questions or concerns. Thank you for your attention and flexibility.


Students are allowed to eat outside between the buildings during their assigned lunch period.  Please remember:  Only seniors with privileges may leave campus.  All other students must remain on campus.  Please clean up after yourselves by placing trash in the trash cans. Thank you.

With the arrival of spring and warmer temperatures, we welcome our students to enjoy eating lunch outside at the tables between the buildings. Parents are reminded that students may be excused as absent for the following reasons only:

>  Illness
> A family emergency
> Family vacation
> Religious observances

Dismissing students for any other reason, including lunch, will be considered unexcused and will be
addressed according to the school rules on pages 18-20 in the Student Handbook.

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. Please have a pleasant and restful spring break.
