πŸ’ŠπŸ˜· Important News from our Nurse πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ

BIS Families,


As a reminder, ALL students who are leaving due to illness must be evaluated by the campus nurse first. Even in those times when students communicate directly to their parents through text or phone call. They will be directed to the nurse prior to leaving. We do this so that we can closely monitor students' signs and symptoms to determine when they can safely return to school. Thank you for your understanding as we do our best to keep Yellowjackets healthy and keep germs from spreading!

New Six Weeks 😁 New Year πŸ˜ƒ New Goals! πŸ˜‰

The new semester is a great time to set new goals about getting to school on time! If a student is late, the student's 3rd tardy in a 6 week's time will results in a warning. The 4th tardy, and any thereafter, will result in a detention. Let's make it our goal to be on time!
