BC will be closed this entire week, Oct. 10-14. Athletic practices are permitted per the coaching staff.
Friday’s football game will now be held at Toombs County. Practice at BC Tuesday at 3 p.m. in full pads. We understand that some will not be able to make the practice and we understand. Our 10-12th-graders are asked to be there if they can, as well as the 9th-graders who traveled to Bryan County.
The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our primary concern. Our prayers remain with all who have been affected by the hurricane.
