Winter weather will soon be here! Make sure you and your family are prepared by knowing where to look for BLA weather delay and closure information.

BLA follows School District 49 when it comes to weather-related delays and closings. If you see School District 49 (D49) listed, this does include BLA. However, please check the BLA website and television stations for pertinent announcements. In all cases of bad weather, parents should exercise their own judgment whether to have their child in school. Please make note of the following resources:

  1.  BLRACADEMY.ORG – The BLA website will include weather information on the home page, with a brief statement such as “Delayed 2 Hours” or “Cancelled/Closed”.

  2.  D49 App and the website

  3.  Media- Delays/Cancellations will be on the rolling ticker at the bottom of local news stations.

  4.  FlashAlert – Receive texts/emails about BLA delays/cancellations if you are signed up for this service.

When BLA is on a 2-hour delay, school will begin for BLPA at 9:45am, with doors opening at 9:30am for students; school will begin for BLRA at 10am, with doors opening at 9:45am for students. In the event there is a 2 hour delay on a 1pm early release day, classes for students will be cancelled for the day.
