2020-2021 Reopening Plan for BCA


Dear BCA Families-

I hope everyone is safe and well. Here is our plan moving forward into the 2020-2021 school year. I will be calling each family over the next few days to discuss which opportunity, Face-to-Face Learning or Bay City Virtually Academy is best for your family. I look forward to these conversations and answering your questions.

Elementary Masks


Dear Bay City Academy Families,

A new executive order has been established with a direct impact on our kids at Bay City Academy.  Governor Gretchen 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 email  We appreciate your patience, understanding, and flexibility as we continue to adapt during this COVID-19 pandemic.  

Thank You,

Mrs. Long

Principal, Bay City Academy
