Week of February 15-19
Preparation for Possible Inclement Weather - Week of February 15
In the event of a closure due to weather, TEA has granted districts the opportunity to request a temporary change to instructional delivery for students. If next week’s weather leads to campus closures, please be advised that all BISD classes will be moved to a virtual learning environment.
As a reminder, Monday, February 15, is a student holiday. Students currently learning on campus were told to take all necessary items home to prepare. Please look for information sent from your child's classroom teacher for the virtual schedule if the need arises.
We appreciate your patience. Stay safe and stay warm.
*If your child changed instructional settings for the 5th six weeks, the information will be sent from his/her new classroom teacher.
Vision and Hearing Screener
Each year, the state of Texas requires students to complete a vision and hearing screening and a spinal screening for age-appropriate individuals.
Some virtual learning students have not been screened this school year. If you would like to schedule an appointment to have your student screened by Nurse Benson, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 817-245-3800.
If you prefer not to bring your student in for screening, the Department of State Health Services encourages parents to take their children to a medical provider for well child exams. During these appointments you can ask for screenings. If your child is screened, we encourage you to send us the results of those screens for our records.
Signs of a possible vision problem include:
Tilting the head
Sitting too close to the television
Constant eye rubbing
Abnormal alignment or movement of the eyes
Signs of a possible hearing problem include:
Your child wants volumes louder than other members of the family
Your child often says “What?”
It seems like your child isn’t listening
Your child seems to hear fine sometimes and not others
Signs your child may have an abnormal spinal curvature:
Uneven shoulders or hips
Ribs that are prominent or stick out in one area
Muscles that are prominent in the lower back or bulge on one side
If you think your child has a vision or hearing problem, or an abnormal spinal curvature, please contact the school nurse. Discuss your concerns with them right away.
