January 14, 2021 Dear Parent/Guardian: Thank you for supporting Bahamas Academy. Please pay attention to the following announcements:
- Resumption of Face to Face Instruction
Bahamas Academy is in the process of discussing and planning the resumption of face to face instruction. Presently, we are awaiting permission from the relevant authorities. We ask for your patience as we continue to provide quality education in a safe environment.
- Virtual Guidelines
In an effort to keep our students safe in the virtual environment, we are insisting that cameras are turned on once the child has entered the class. We had a most unfortunate incident on Friday, January 8th that has led us to remain steadfast in enforcing our rules. Students who refuse to turn on their cameras will not be permitted to attend the classes. If your child has an issue with a camera or a device, please contact the office immediately. All students should attend the classes. Promotion to the next grade level and graduation are dependent upon attendance to class. Students are not permitted to share their class code with others. Codes for the Secondary Division classes were changed on Monday. Students should adhere to the school’s dress code and policy. Please be reminded that students should not wear weave, braids, beads, plaits, locks, twists, colors or spikes in their hair. Jewelry and tight fitting tops are unacceptable. Students should be properly groomed for class.
