Frequently Asked Questions K

 

We are excited to have your family in the BMPV community! Here are answers to frequently asked questions that should help your child arrive happy and prepared for the first day of school:

Drop-off is at 8:10am. If your child is having breakfast please make sure they arrive by 8:10 am. If you arrive after 8:40am, please go to the Welcome Center to get a late pass before going to your child’s classroom.

 

For the first 6 weeks of school, you might accompany your child into the classroom and stay until breakfast ends at 8:40am. Starting on October 3rd, we ask that you say goodbye to your child at their classroom door and let them enter the classroom on their own each morning. This will help foster children’s independence, make the morning transition smoother, and allow teachers to begin instruction promptly at 8:40am.
