High School Athletic Busing

Dear BCA Families - We are pleased to announce that BCA will be offering our athletes transportation to practices and games if they are immediately after school. When athletes have away games, they usually have to be at the ASC school or field by 3:30 PM. We will be offering transportation to those students so they can catch the ASC bus on time. Also, practices sometimes start between 3:30-4:00 PM, we will be offering transportation to the gym and field. The $30 fee that is paid for participation for sports will be used towards gas or any other expenses in regards to the bus, there will be no additional fee to utilize the bus for athletics. This service will start on our first day of school, August 24th. If you would like your child to utilize the bus for athletics, please contact Mrs. Hugo at 989-284-3988 or at hugoj@baycityacademy.com.

Elementary Masks


Dear Bay City Academy Families,

A new executive order directly impacts our kids at Bay City Academy. Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order #2020-185 states that starting October 5, 2020, all students in grades K-12 will be required to wear masks in their classrooms. Previously, Governor Whitmer had only required that our 7-12 students wear masks.  

While we understand this is not optimal for everyone, our collective responsibility is to comply with all mandates carefully. Each classroom teacher will be working with the students this week to help make the mask transition smooth for our kids. We will make sure that we provide frequent mask breaks for our students throughout the day. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Long at 989-293-6091, or longd@baycityacademy.com. We appreciate your patience, understanding, and flexibility as we continue to adapt during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Thank You,

Mrs. Long

Principal, Bay City Academy
