More and more students are coming to school with smart watches. Watches that take photos/videos, text and make phone calls should also be powered down and stored away in backpacks. These would be considered a cell phone and a contract should be completed for these as well.
Anyone not adhering to the procedures will be asked not to bring technology to school, and disciplinary action may be taken. Thank you for your support with this.
Breakfast and Lunch
If your child will be buying lunch, please make sure they have money in their account by visiting www.MyPaymentsPlus.com. You will need your child’s student ID in order to sign up for an account. If you need this, you can find it in FOCUS.
Clinic Permission Forms
Thank you for your help with this. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
Inclement Weather Plans
If it is raining but there is no lightning, students will be released like normal. We encourage students who walk or bike home to have rain gear in their backpacks. If there is severe weather in the area, or lightning, we will call an Inclement Weather Dismissal. This will be communicated to parents via email and text using Blackboard Connect. When Inclement Weather is called, there are only three options for dismissing students, hold for up to 30 minutes, car loop or Brevard After School.
Please note that we will stop checking students out fifteen minutes prior to dismissal. Monday through Thursday this will be 2:30 and on Fridays that will be 1:15. This is a routine practice and will continue on Inclement Weather Days. For the safety of staff and students, parents must remain in their vehicles when going through the car loop. Please do not walk up to the car loop.
Additionally, when lightning is close to the school, we follow the BPS lightning policy. Students will be held in classrooms until it is safe to release them. Please remain patient with us if this happens. Safety is our first priority. Once it is safe to resume activity outside, the car loop will run like normal and walkers/bikers will be released.
If you did not fill out an Inclement Weather Form at Meet and Greet, please contact your child's teacher to fill on out ASAP. Please take a photo of the form. It is easy to forget what you filled out midway through the year.
