COVID-19 Information

Benedictine Military School administrators have developed a plan for the 2020-21 school year. BC’s three-option plan is designed to best provide a healthy and safe learning environment, while offering Cadets an experience that is as close to normal as possible. As the summer moves on and further guidance is available, BC will refine its three-option plan. The three options are:

• Traditional schooling – a plan in which everyone comes to campus each school day and follows safety protocols.

• Blended – a plan to accommodate classroom distancing in which half of BC’s students come to campus three days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) one week and the other half comes two days (Tuesday, Thursday). They would rotate the following week so Cadets would have the same number of days on campus at the end of every two weeks. This would be similar to a college experience.

• CARE for THE 400 (Cadets Accessing Remotely for Education) online learning program – a plan in which Cadets would attend classes online from their homes.

  • June 17: Notification from our Principal, Jacob Horne

    We believe "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." We have spent a significant amount of time planning for the coming school year and, fortunately, those plans have prepared us for the likelihood that COVID-19 would directly impact our campus. As you may expect, part of our plan is active communication with our families, which is why I write this message.

  • May 17: Update from our Principal, Jacob Horne

    Dear BC Family,

    We hope you had a great weekend and that this email finds you and your family well. We are wrapping up final grades for underclassmen. Lunch is still being provided through Friday from 11:00AM-1:00PM. Although we continue to deal with COVID-19 disruptions to our life, it has been a fantastic year. We look forward to getting back to normal for the beginning of the 2020-21 school year. Please be on the lookout for the 2020-21SY Summer Reading and Textbook list likely being posted next week. Although I will not send a weekly email during the summer, there may be times when I or someone else may write you pertaining to Benedictine.  Thank you again for choosing Benedictine Military School.  God bless.

  • May 9: Senior Checkout & Graduation update from our Principal, Jacob Horne

    Dear Senior Parents,
     
    To say this last quarter has been a whirlwind would be an understatement. Well, we are now one week out from the end of the 2019-20SY.  The next event is senior checkout, which is Monday, 5/11.  We have divided the cadets alphabetically by last name.  Please see when your son is asked to complete his checkout (2020 Senior Checkout Times.pdf).  If your son cannot make his assigned window, we have built in time for him to come back in the afternoon.  The following will be required areas for completion:

    • May 3: Update from our Principal, Jacob Horne

      Dear BC Family,
       
      We hope this email finds you and your family well.  It is hard to believe we are entering the final month of the 2020-21 school year.  It feels like just yesterday was registration day.  This coming week is teacher appreciation week.  Please encourage your son to write an email (or a letter) to those teachers who have made his BC experience unforgettable.  This week we’d like to have a little fun with the cadets, so below are the uniforms of the day.

    • April 29: COVID-19 response update from our Headmaster, Fr. Frank

      Dear Parents,

      You have made so many sacrifices and accommodations to send your son to Benedictine, especially so during these past two months. It is in times like these that our students and their families need our support the most and we will continue to provide it to ensure that your son remains here at Benedictine.
       
      To best provide for his education and health, we are considering a number of options as we look not only to the close of this year but especially to the 2020-21 school year.  As the summer moves on and further guidance is available through the CDC and governmental offices, we will refine our positions on these issues. Our top priorities are keeping our students safe and continuing their academic progress; regardless of the challenges that are presented.

    • April 19: Senior update from our Principal, Jacob Horne

      Dear Senior Parents,
       
      To say this has been a tough way to end your son’s career at Benedictine is an understatement.  Later you will receive my usual weekly email to the entire parent community, but we wanted to contact you first.  We have no doubt that your son is about to move onto another great road on his journey through life, and we wanted to explain how we seek to end this school year.

    • April 10: An Easter message from our Headmaster, Fr. Frank

      Dear BC Family,
       
      As we continue to dig in during this virus, my thoughts gravitate to the Good Friday tomb, the covering of the Shroud, and the sense of abandonment felt by the disciples. These days, we long to see friends, to make contact again, to experience a “social distance” that is within arm’s reach. These days remind us that we truly are a “social” people and “community” is our place.

    • April 1: Update from our Headmaster, Fr. Frank

      Dear BC family,

      I hope this letter finds you well and clear of the COVID–19. This virus has put so many of us on unfamiliar turf and left us looking for a familiar foothold where we can find some semblance of a normal routine. I wonder if the message of this Lenten and Easter season might bring a measure of familiarity to these novel and oftentimes anxious days. Do such times remind of how fleeting our times can be?

    • March 27: Update from our Principal, Jacob Horne

      Dear BC Family,

      We hope this email finds you and your family well. Benedictine Military School will follow Governor Kemp’s directive to remain closed through April 24th. We will take our Easter Break from April 9th-17th. We do sincerely hope to be able to get together again before having to conclude the school year. We are taking part in on-going discussions about many of the traditional events that we would enjoy at this time of the year to include Ring Day and Graduation. Again, as more information becomes available we will update you.

    • March 22: Update from our Principal, Jacob Horne

      Dear BC Family,
       
      We hope you had a great weekend. I am sure we are in for more surprises as our local, state, and federal governments continue to evaluate how we should best combat COVID-19. I promise to do my best to continue communicating with you as new information becomes available or information that would cause us to edit previously stated intent/objectives/plans. It is our hope and desire to get back as soon as possible, but we will do so with caution as to protect our BC family and greater Savannah community.

    • March 17: Update from our Principal, Jacob Horne

      Dear BC Family,
       
      Benedictine Military School will follow Governor Kemp's order to keep schools closed through March 31. As that date gets closer, we will continue to seek information to make the most informed decision for Benedictine.  We do not desire to jump the gun and begin to cancel events such as Prom or Easter Break until we are better informed as those events approach.

      We thank you for your patience during these incredible moments in the operations of BC and the World.
