Absences can be reported via the form on the BFA app or by emailing attendance@bfacademy.org. All absences and tardies must be reported by 8:30 a.m. The name of the person reporting the absence/tardy, the student’s name, the teacher’s name, and the reason for the absence/tardy should be reported. Absences and tardies must be reported via the app or attendance email, even if the teacher was notified directly. The absence policy can be found on the policy webpage under ‘Students.’
 
It’s especially important again this year that we’re able to track reasons students are absent due to illness. When reporting your student’s absence, please provide details regarding the reason for the absence, including the student’s symptoms or diagnosis. For example, you can indicate: cough, sore throat, fever, strep throat, or exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID. 
 
Direct links to report an absence are available through the website Quicklinks or via the BFA app.
