Before & After School Reminders

We'd like to remind families that the doors open to BMS students at 8:00 am.

In the afternoon, students may remain in the building or on school property after 3:15 only if they are at a supervised after-school activity or working with a teacher. They cannot "hang out" in the hallways or cafeteria. 

The late bus is for students who regularly ride the bus and who are at school for a supervised activity. 

The library is typically open until 3:45 Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, but hours may vary slightly and are updated daily on a board by the library.
