BMS Upcoming Events:
Week of June 7, 2021:
Our Next PTO Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 7:00 pm. At this particular PTO meeting we will be voting on the board for the 2021 - 2022 academic school year.
Traffic Pattern Update:
Please see the link below regarding an update to our BMS AM and PM traffic pattern. As previously indicated, new traffic patterns will begin on Wednesday, June 9, 2021.
We are also asking our students when they ride/walk to school from Middle Highway or Lincoln Ave to follow the sidewalks onto campus and not cross the driveways. This will greatly reduce the need to stop the flow of traffic.
As of late, we have noticed an increase of early dismissals. We are hearing that some parents are dismissing early to avoid traffic. We are hopeful with the above mentioned traffic pattern, this will reduce the traffic at the end of the day. If it can be avoided, we do ask that you wait for the school day to end or dismiss prior to 2:30 pm.
If it can not be avoided, please be mindful of the following:
