Any changes in after school transportation arrangements need to be made in writing. For example, you cannot just tell your child that they'll be picked up, rather than riding the bus. The office staff will not deliver messages changing after school arrangements. A note MUST be sent to the teacher.
Per BCS Transportation Department policy, ONLY the principal is allowed to get a student off of the bus once he/she has boarded.
Elementary Grading Scale
1st and 2nd Grades will consist of A, B, C, D, NG (No grade) . A grade of NG will be given if the student is not performing at grade level and receives a 59% or lower. This grading scale is being implemented this year to support the Standards Based Grading Scale/Report Card which will be implemented next year. Standards Based Grades consist of 4=advanced, 3=proficient, 2=nearing proficiency, 1=beginning step.
