Welcome, new Scholars to the BLA Family. We are so happy you have joined us! Congratulations on having climbed another rung on the ladder of academic achievement. Your progress comes at a monumental time in history, as COVID has re-made the education environment. We are now dealing with social distancing, remote learning and more. We realize this is all very different for you – not only because you are adjusting to high school and new approaches to learning - but also because you will have additional expectations and responsibilities, that come with achieving your new status as high school students.
What You Need to Know
We want you to know the changes are new for all of us. We also want you to know, and remember, we are all in this together! What does that mean? It means that as a community, as BLA Family, we work together to ensure a fair, trusting and supportive learning environment.
Each of you plays a key role in that mission. Staff are fully committed to supporting you in your BLA experience, but we need your cooperation. In order to maintain that fair, trusting and supportive learning space – one that supports growth and furthers success - BLA asks your commitment to seven rules (aka Non-Negotiables). They are posted on the school website, and for those of you attending in-person classes, they are also posted in the school building. They are extremely important to the safety and overall success of the entire student body. As such, we are trusting that you will follow them at all times.
Each of you has the power to learn, lead and positively contribute to the school, community and greater society! BLA staff are committed to supporting you every step of the way.
Again scholars, welcome! Plan and prepare for success. Do your best. Aim for greatness! #TogetherBLAStrong
