Nuts, Sesame, Scents
Please do not bring nut (peanuts, tree nuts) or sesame (includes hummus which is made from sesame seeds) products into our school.
There are students and staff at BA who have LIFE THREATENING ALLERGIES to these foods. As well, be aware that we are a scent "sensitive" property as we have staff and students with severe scent sensitivities.
School Start Time Instruction starts sharply at 8:25am for all students.
We ask that students arrive no later than 8:20am so they have plenty of time to get prepared for their morning lessons. Students are welcome to enter the school at 8:05am.

BA at Lunenburg Lit Fest
As part of Lunenburg Lit Festival, our Grade 8 and 9 students walked to the Lunenburg Heritage Bandstand on September 24th to hear Lunenburg author, Jo Treggiari, read selections from her newest book, "The Grey Sisters". This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to be able to ask questions of one of our local authors. We want to thank the South Shore Public Libraries for organizing this opportunity, and for providing each of our students with their own copy of Jo's new book!
