Message from the office.

Hello BCE Community-

It has been a fun two weeks at BCE. Halloween was so much fun. Thank you to all who helped make it possible. Today was sports day. It is so fun to connect with everyone with common sports. Thanks to all who participated today.

Report cards will be coming home next Friday. Please make sure you ask your student next Friday. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact your teacher.

We have one more full week before our week break. Everyone at BCE is so thankful for our community and your support. I hope your family can celebrate those you are thankful for and have some well-needed relaxation.

Please remember we do not have school on Friday, November 10th.

Have a great 3 weekend.

I can be reached best by email at gfippin@slvusd.org

Attendance Matters

We know people get sick, people get injured, and there can be family or life responsibilities and other issues that are reasonable and excused.

But if your student can attend, they need to be in school.

If your student is out for three or more consecutive days, we may request a doctor's note to continue excusing the absences.

Students who miss 3-5 days will receive a Chronic Absence letter. We will then meet with those families to attempt to support the student attending school. On the second Chronic Absence Letter, families may be required to meet at the District Office to put a plan in place for the student's attendance. On the third Chronic Absence Letter, families may be required to meet with the County Office Student Attendance Review Board for truancy.

Our goal is that nobody ever gets that far along with truancy. We are here to help and support, but it does start at home with the expectation that your student will attend school regularly.

Dine out for Grad Night

Let's keep these appetites going with our next Dine Out Event to support SLVHS Grad Night!! Aroma Restaurant in Ben Lomond is our next partner. On Thursday, November 9th, bring your friends to lunch and your family to dinner because Aroma is graciously offering us a percentage from BOTH lunch AND dinner. Lunch is 11 am-3 pm and Dinner is 3-9 pm. BE SURE TO MENTION YOU ARE THERE FOR SLV GRAD NIGHT. See you all there!

Drop off and Pick Up

We are so excited to see everyone, and the first couple of weeks can be very busy in the parking lot. Please be patient with everyone while we learn and remember the parking lot rules. If you are dropping off or picking up, please remember not to leave your car if you are not parked in an assigned spot. There is no parent parking on campus, all parents need to park on the street and walk in. If you drop off at YMCA before 8, you may park in the bus zone for your quick drop-off. We do not have supervision for students before 8:10. Please do not leave your students before 8:10 unattended. Staff will be out and about to help and ensure everyone is safe.
