Things to Know in BCS: Monday, April 15, 2019

Verify Your Address: Students will be notified of their zoned school for the 2019-2020 school year via a mailed letter. In an effort to update our database to ensure students receive this letter, we need to verify the mailing address that we have on file. Your child will bring home a form today for you to verify your address.  Please return this memo to your child's school by Thursday, April 18. Please feel free to contact your child's school if you have any questions.
