2021-22 Healthy Operating Levels

BGA developed a leveled approach to its strategies to reduce the risk of  COVID-19 infection for the 2020-21 school year, and we will enter the 2021-22 school year with a similar four-level approach. The school is aware that information and data concerning COVID-19 are constantly changing, and we will continue to monitor conditions and recommendations and make adjustments accordingly.
