In response to Governor McMaster’s announcement this afternoon, BJA will shortly release the following information.
In preparation for the transition for online learning beginning Wednesday, April 1, we’ll email you specific instructions and calendar changes on Monday. Meanwhile, enjoy the rest of spring break!
GREENVILLE, S.C. (March 24, 2020) – This afternoon Governor Henry McMaster and South Carolina Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman released a joint statement that South Carolina’s schools will remain closed through the month of April.
To protect the health and well-being of the Bob Jones Academy (BJA) community, BJA will follow suit, and online classes will begin at the conclusion of spring break Wednesday, April 1 and continue through Thursday, April 30.
We echo the Governor and Superintendent of Education who said, “Our dedicated teachers … have done a tremendous job in making it possible for our students to learn at home. We understand that the prospect of schools remaining closed for an extended period of time places stress and strain on parents and children. Rest assured, if there is any way to safely open, we will do that.”
“All of us at BJA miss our students. We are pleased that we have the ability to offer quality, online instruction to our K-12 students. We look forward to the day—and hope that it will be during this academic year—that our teachers and students will be able to learn together at school,” said BJA Administrator Dr. Dan Nelson.
Further information will be provided to parents and the public regarding BJA’s plans to resume in-person classes and activities when appropriate.
