A Peek Inside Our School

Class Dojo

If you have not signed up for Class Dojo yet, please be sure to get signed up. This is a great way to stay in touch with your child's teacher(s) and keep track of how things are going. If you need help getting signed up, please call Mr. Fowler.

Car Rider Drop Off

Thank you for your patience as we are getting things up and running again. Please be sure that your child has his/her things together and is ready to exit as soon as you get to the sidewalk so that the car line can move smoothly. Also, please be sure that your child exits the first time you stop anywhere along the front sidewalk. This helps to keep the line moving quickly. Thank you in advance for you help.

Dismissal and Car Rider Pick Up

The bus dismissal and car lines are getting smoother. Thank you for your continued patience as bus drivers learn their routes and procedures and we get the car lines figured out. Please be sure to have the car tag where we can easily read it as you are moving by. Also, if you do not have your child's car tag yet, please ask them if it happens to be in their bookbag. If not, please call Mrs. Brittany Monday so she can ensure that one is sent home Monday.

Free and Reduced Lunch Application

If you have not completed the Free and Reduced Meals Application, please take a few minutes to do this for all your children. If you have completed a paper copy of the application and returned it to the school, you do not need to complete this application. If you have questions about the free and reduced lunch program or the form, please call Mrs. Krystal.

It's Been a Great Week at BES!!

It has been a fantastic first week of school. We are so excited to have all our kids back and to get the year off to such a wonderful start!

Please be reminded that our schedule has changed slightly this year. Our car rider door opens and breakfast begins at 7:15 and our Tardy Bell rings at 7:40. Students must be in their rooms before the bell rings in order to not be counted tardy for the day. If you arrive after 7:45, you will need to park and walk your child in to be sure that he/she gets in safely and gets signed in. We begin dismissing busses at 2:30 and walkers and car riders shortly after that. Thank you for your patience as everyone has been getting back into routines and get the procedures and process down. The lines will continue to speed up especially after the After School Program gets started.

Thank you again for all you have done to help get school up and started so smoothly. We are looking forward to an incredible school year!!

Please know that we value your input. If you have any questions, comments, concerns or suggestions, please let us know. You can email us or call us anytime.
