    April 23, 2020
    To All BCA Families:
    First, I hope you and your family are safe and healthy as you read this letter.  Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we have been adjusting, like you, to the drastic changes in life during the last few weeks. We are extremely appreciative of our students, parents, teachers, staff, and administrators for their positivity, flexibility, and resilience during these trying times. 
    As you know, distance learning for the Bexar County Academy is in full swing. Our goal is to provide continuous educational opportunities, practice, and resources to eliminate as much stress as feasibly possible for students, parents, and teachers. While it is our responsibility and goal to continue to educate our children, we also want to compassionately take into consideration the huge spectrum of challenges that our families and employees are facing during this time. We acknowledge that while we are all in the same storm, we are not all on the same boat and we want to ensure we are able to accommodate the different situations our families find themselves in. We wanted to inform parents that the deadline for report cards for the 5th sixth weeks will be extended until April 28, 2020, to allow students and parents to complete and turn in all assignments for grading. Report cards for the 5th sixth weeks will go out on May 7, 2020.
    Please contact your teacher/s or administrators if you or your students need support. Stay strong! Stay healthy! Serving you,

    BCA Admin
