Welcome to the new school year. Our first day of school is August 20. Due to a surge in COVID-19 cases in Kern County we are starting the school year in distance learning. As soon as health and safety allows we will transition to in person learning. The board will assess current conditions September 10 with the goal of being back in classrooms September 21.

In the meantime we will be providing engaging daily learning activities for all our students. Teachers will connect with students through a variety of digital resources including regular Zoom meetings. We are blessed with Chromebooks for everyone in grades 1-12. Those who need a device to access class activities will be able to take a Chromebook home so they can fully participate in their learning while distance learning.

The Central California Conference Office of Education prepared a re-entry handbook for schools to assist in creating a local plan to operate schools for the 2020-2021 school year. The plan provides guidance to navigate the challenges of COVID-19 whether students are at home or at school. BAA’s Re-Entry Plan 2020-2021 and Distance Learning Plan 2020-2021 can be found at bakersfieldacademy.org.

An orientation Zoom meeting for parents is scheduled for August 13 at 7:00 p.m. Contact principal Mike Schwartz at mschwartz@bakersfieldacademy.org or 661.859.8715 for more information.
