ARRIVAL/DISMISSAL REMINDERS

Arrival:

Grady County Officials have placed NO PASSING Signs along Sooner Road. Please do not pass while waiting in line. The buses will be allowed to pass so that they can drive in to drop off students. This is coordinated with the Grady County Sheriff and the BCPS Director of Transportation. As you get close to the parking lot, please do not pass in order to park. We ask that you wait until you can enter the parking lot or until you can turn into a parking spot along the road. Once you reach the parking lot, we ask that you go right if you wish to drop off. If you wish to park and walk your child to the building, please pull into the left side of the drop off lane and then turn left to park in the first row of the parking lot. If you drop off in the ECC parking lot, please do not block the entrance to the Arbor Glen neighborhood while you are waiting in line. The doors open at 8:05 each morning. School begins at 8:30.


Dismissal:

Please drive with caution when leaving the parking lot each day. Look out for parents and students walking to their car. Please be courteous to other drivers. Take turns and let others in line as you are exiting the parking lot. BCIS Car Riders are released at 4:05 each day. At 4:15, we will move students to the office if they have not been picked up.


Oklahoma School Testing Program Parent/Student Portal

Information in the OSTP portal showcases your student's performance on the Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP) Tests in key academic areas. State test results, when combined with other information (i.e. homework, classwork, report card grades, and local assessments), can help you and the teacher work together to support your student's growth. Your student's State ID number is required to access their scores. You will find the ID number on your student's report card along with a letter from Mrs. Byrd. Please call the office if you did not receive the letter and/or report card. The portal is only for 4th and 5th grade students. Our 3rd grade students will take their first OSTP Assessments in April of 2022.
