Student Identification Badges Are Required

The Baker County School District recently upgraded their lunchroom computer system. This upgrade came with a few surprises! You may have received a phone message about the School Bucks program. Don't worry. Lunch and breakfast are still free for all students in the school system. You may periodically receive automated messages from this new system. If you ever need clarification, please contact us directly at 904-259-2226.

In addition to the automated messages, the new computer system does not allow students to enter their lunch numbers. Students need to scan their identification badges when going through the lunch line. Students without badges must have their names manually entered in the system. Help us get your child fed in a timely manner; encourage them to keep track of and bring their student identification badge to school each and every day. They should have a specific location in their backpack where they always put their ID badge.

Free TDAP Booster Clinic at BCMS

Did you know that several seventh-grade students were sent home on August 10th of this school year? They were not permitted to attend class. Why? Because in the State of Florida students are required by law to have the TDAP booster shot prior to starting seventh grade.

Save yourself time, money, and effort, let the Baker County Health Department administer the TDAP to your child at school. What do you need to do? Just complete the form that was sent home with your child's progress report today and return it to the school. The permission form is due by March 29th. On April 5th, BCMS will host this free TDAP clinic. For your convenience, a copy of the form has been linked below.

If you are interested in getting the shot administered at the health department instead of school, the Baker County Health Department will be hosting a free clinic on Tuesday, March 7th, at their facility.
