Middle School Meet and Greet

Wednesday night 8/17 we will be holding the Middle School Meet and Greet (like Back to School Night). This will be an open house format where you can come and go throughout the evening. This is not a conference, but the teachers will be here to share with you about the year ahead, give handouts, and answer quick questions. We will also have information in the cafeteria about how to sign into Infinite Campus, access volunteer opportunities, and order your yearbook (and more). We will also have staff on hand to help you buy Bromley patches, pay fees, and drop off medications. Finally, we will have a tasty treat here for you to enjoy on your way out.

Pastries with the Principals:

August 26th at 8:45 am will be our first Pastries with the Principals for the 22/23 school year. We welcome you to attend one time or every time. The content is always different. Come and hear about all that is happening at BECS. Spend time with our two amazing Principals while enjoying some yummy pastries. We hope to see you there! Please RSVP to ensure we have enough treats.


Don't forget to bring your ID and check in at the front office before heading to the Cafeteria.

PTO Updates:

PTO Kickoff meeting PLUS food!!!! Please fill out this form if you plan on attending.

BECS PTO is ready for an amazing year! They have many fun events planned including the popular Fall Festival, holiday shop, Color Run, and Parent Gala. Click here to be notified of these events and how you can be involved!

Safety & Security Protocols:


One of our primary focuses as a school is to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Please ensure you have a physical valid ID each time you visit. Additionally, all visitors who are scheduled to assist in other parts of the building must complete a Raptor screen if going beyond the main office when students are in session. Visitors need to wear their Raptor badge for the duration of their visit and check out with the front office before leaving the building.


Safety Drills

Bromley ensures we are up to date with practicing for emergency situations. Along with 27J, Bromley utilizes the I Luv U Guys Standard Response Protocols. We will be engaging in monthly evacuation drills starting in August. More information regarding safety and security can be found on 27Js website.


Technology:


6-8 grade students will be issued a device and power cord the first week of school. They are expected to bring their devices home daily and then return to school with them fully charged.

3-5 grade students will also be assigned a device the first week of school. These devices will remain in the building but can also be sent home at the discretion of the teachers.

K-2 students will begin to receive their devices during the second full week of school. These devices will remain in the school at all times.


All devices are issued with a case that needs to remain on the device at all times. BECS has an accidental damage insurance policy for all the devices. Intentional damage to a device or power cord is not covered under the insurance and students will be responsible for all damage fees.


Traffic Update:

Due to staffing shortages, crosswalk guards will no longer be located at the intersection of Longspur Dr and Goshawk St. Please plan accordingly.


Update Your Information

Did you move or change your contact or work numbers over the summer? Please remember to update your contact information. It is crucial we have accurate information on how to contact parents/guardians. Contact Update Form can be turned in to the main office.


Yearbook:

BACK TO SCHOOL offer: $30 (Free icons available with the purchase of personalization)

Offer online: July 1 – September 9


Volunteer Orientation Dates

Thank you to all those that attended our two volunteer orientations. LINK PTO will be offering another opportunity in the evening to attend this meeting on September 7th.


We will continue to offer opportunities for families to complete the necessary orientation and paperwork throughout the first semester including a virtual option. Stay tuned!
