TODAY AND TOMORROW: CLAIM YOUR LOST AND FOUND
Have you or your child misplaced an article of clothing, a lunch box, or other personal item? Don't let the school year end without checking our Lost and Found! This Thursday and Friday, May 25-26, items in our Lost and Found will be on display in the gym from 7:30 a.m. on Thursday until 1:00 p.m. on Friday. Valuables, small items, and unlabeled BCS wear are kept in the school office, so be sure to check with Mrs. Roberts or Mrs. Schmidt if your missing item fits one of those categories. Lost and found items that have not been claimed by 1:00 p.m. on Friday will be donated to charity.
REMEMBER TO PICK UP MEDICATIONS!
Medications that have been left with Mrs. Schmidt for administration to students must be picked up from the Nurse’s Office by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, May 26. Any medications that are not collected will be discarded. Parents who want medications to be sent home with their child should notify Mrs. Schmidt by email at email@example.com.
