Notes From the Front Office

 

Updated Volunteer/Observer Vaccine Requirements - Effective Monday, October 25, all volunteers and chaperones who interact with students, and parents/guardians who are conducting classroom observations will be required to use the PinPoint platform to show proof of full vaccination at least five school days in advance. The requirement also applies to students who volunteer or mentor at another HCPSS school during the school day, but not to students who go to the ARL or another school as part of their class schedule. Learn how to access and use the PinPoint VaccineCheck platform.

 

Halloween at BBES - At Bollman Bridge we celebrate Halloween with our PTA at our Annual Trunk or Treat!  This year the event is being held on Saturday, Oct. 23.   See more in the PTA section about how you can get involved!  Please note that we do not hold Halloween parties or a parade during the school day. Students should not bring or wear costumes to school.   

 

Related Arts Calendar- Keep on track with the Related Arts Schedule with this Color Coded Calendar for your reference: hcpss color calendar.pdf 

Health Checks - Parents! We need your help. Please make sure to perform health checks on your children before sending them to school every morning and to send them with extra masks. Extra masks are available at school if needed..   Check out :HCPSS Health & Safety Guidelines for a detailed list of symptoms.

Quarantining Students - If your child has been asked to quarantine, their teacher will contact you with information about instructional support during this time.  This will include synchronous support time for ELA and Math during the week. 

 

Label Your Child’s Items  - Reminder to make sure items such as lunch boxes, jackets, and water bottles are labeled with your child’s first and last name.
