National School Bus Safety Week

Dates: October 20-24, 2014

Theme: “Be Smart – Be seen! I wait in a safe place!

School Bus Safety Poster Contest: All BAE Students were instructed on school bus safety in August during their library time. To give our students the opportunity to show everyone what they learned BAE is encouraging all students to participate in a School Bus Safety Poster Contest.  The students are encouraged to complete their posters at home. All student that participate will be given a prize. There will also be one “Best in Class” winner for each grade.

Ø  Daily Trivia: During morning announcements Mrs. Blenden will ask one school bus safety trivia question. Have your students put their answer on a small piece of paper with their name on it. Have one student bring me your classes answers by the end of the day. All collected answers will be put into one basket. We will keep drawing until we get to the student that answers the trivia question correctly… may it be the first pull and on down the line. The student that gets drawn with the correct answer will be announced during morning announcements the following day and will be called to get a prize.

Ø  On Wednesday, October 22, 2014 all staff and students are encouraged to wear the colors yellow, black, white, red, green. The colors of a school bus and a stop light … STOP, THINK, ACT!

From the Nurse

Please make sure children are dressed appropriately for the weather, long pants or leg tights with coats when the temperature is below 50 degrees.

Please do not allow your child to bring medicine to school. The medicine must be turned into the nurse by the guardian. This includes medicines such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Midol, etc...

If a child has any specific food allergies, the nurse and cafeteria must have an updated doctor’s excuse confirming this allergy.  These doctor’s excuses must be updated every new school year.
