Car Rider Parents READ THIS!

Shortly after the winter break BSE will initiate the FASTLANE for all car riders. The FASTLANE is an electronic sign-in for all car riders and is brought to us via our School Dismissal Manager Program. This program will allow us to streamline our pick up process, increase the safety of our students, and reduce our students exposure to the cold and heat. Look for an email with directions in the near future and a start date a few weeks after we return in January.
