Staying Safe at School

As of February 2021, the COVID-19 Preparedness Plan for all schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit has been updated, and the BFC version of the plan reflects these changes. Please note that the updates reflect a departure from the concept of "Phases," as these were attached to a plan from the State of Michigan that is no longer active. Current and future AOD plans align to MDHHS orders. 
All classes will be synchronous live on a "first day" if the school enters a full shutdown. Student cameras will need to be functional and on for:
  • Attendance in the first five minutes of class, and,
  • Discussion, at the discretion of the classroom teacher
    • Cameras need to be on for some portion of class
    • You can blur your background in Meet, under “change background” when you click the three dots in the lower right corner -- however, this does use up a lot of CPU power due to hardware acceleration, and will slow down your Chromebook. Not recommended.
Students do not need to be in your uniform, but should be presentable. However, being in uniform may sharpen focus and give students the mindset of being in school. The daily schedule includes 5 minutes between classes as a break, and a longer lunch than normal.
The daily schedule is as follows:
  • Start of the Day: 7:50am 
  • Live Broadcast M/T/Th/Fri from the office at 7:50am (No live broadcast on Wednesdays)
    • Morning Prayer, Mission Statement, Pledge of Allegiance, and Daily Announcements
  • 1st Hour: 8:00am - 8:45am
  • 2nd Hour: 8:50am - 9:35am
  • 3rd Hour: 9:40am - 10:25am
  • 4th Hour: 10:30am - 11:15am
  •  Break for Lunch: 11:15am - 12:00pm
  • 5th Hour: 12:00pm - 12:45pm
  • 6th Hour: 12:50pm - 1:35pm
  • 7th Hour: 1:40pm - 2:25pm
