FBA REOPENING PLAN
Freedom Baptist Academy is committed to providing your family a clean and safe environment where your child can learn. It is our desire at FBA to keep the schedule and routine as normal as possible for our students and families while also protecting their health and safety. A consistent school schedule and routine is important for educational and social health. Through our health and wellness policy we hope to greatly minimize risk of transmission of any infections or sicknesses among the student body.
Because of the Coronavirus effects on the immune compromised and those with underlying medical conditions Freedom Baptist Academy has made it a priority to protect the most vulnerable among us by abiding by recommendations of the CDC when making decisions regarding the health and safety of our families and students. FBA families, students, and staff will need to be flexible and patient understanding that protecting the health of our students and staff may require changes in procedures, sometimes with short notice. In the event that in-person school cannot take place FBA will provide remote learning for our students.
