Morning Arrival
Parents please do not drop your children off at school before 7:50. Please drive slowly down the driveway to the main entrance (Door #1) and make one stop in the designated "drop off" area. Please make only one stop and have students exit on the right side of the vehicle. All students are to enter the building through door #1 (the main entrance). For safety reasons, no students are to be dropped off or picked up in the west drive.

If you have something to drop off in the office, please park in one of the visitor spots on the left side of the driveway. Please be certain to park in a visitors' parking spot as all of the other parking spots are designated for faculty/staff parking.

Thank you for your help!

Student Absence/Illness Information
Students should be in school unless for illness or family emergencies. To report an absence: please call 946-2202 Ext. 2, the BES attendance number. (Please do not send an email message to the teacher, or a note with a sibling.) If we do not receive a call from a parent, we are required, for your child's safety,  to try to contact you by phone.

For the protection of the entire student body, a student with a fever of 100 degrees or more
will be required to go home. Students are not to return to school until they have been fever free (without fever reducing medication) for 24 hours. A doctor's note is required to return to school for any student who has been absent for more than three days, has any type of skin rash, or has been absent due to Conjunctivitis (Pink eye) or Chicken Pox.
