        We are already starting to get quite a collection of hoodies, water bottles, lunch boxes and jackets in our lost and found!  As we cannot encourage you to come take a look like we usually do, we would HIGHLY encourage you to WRITE YOUR CHILD'S NAME on an inside tag of their coats, hoodies, lunch boxes, even winter hats, as we will do our best to get them back to your student before we donate each trimester!!!

      • BCES Inclement Weather Dismissal

        If it is raining or lightning, we will hold all students inside.  Kindie walkers/bike riders go to east side while ALL other walkers/bike riders will be at the front doors of the school.  If you have a kindie who is a walker or bike rider and has an older sibling, please pick up the older sibling at the front before picking up your kindie on the east side.

        *We will be asking parents their students' last name and we will find your student(s).

        *We realize some students need to walk/ride home regardless of the weather.  We will be holding them until the lightening passes.

        *We are unable to release children to neighbors without your permission.

        Depending on lightening, we hold bus dismissal until we can safely load.
