Car Tags

Last year we started a Visor Tag System for car riders. Families are provided a Visor Tag with their name on it. This tag is to be displayed on your passenger visor, visible to BG staff as you pull through the pick-up line. Visor Tags were given to all families last week. If you need additional visor tags please email Mrs. Stanley.
