Dear BCS Families,

It is hard to believe it is already August! We hope this update finds our families doing well and enjoying all that summer in Maine has to offer.  Although more information will be coming out as we get closer to the start of school, we wanted to reach out in order to share some important highlights with you now. 

Classroom assignments for the upcoming year should have been listed on your child’s K-5 report card in June. (If you don’t know who their Grade 1-6 classroom teacher is, please feel free to call the school office.) Kindergarten classroom placements will be mailed to families by mid-August and Pre-K staff will reach out to notify their families of teacher assignments once their enrollment and screenings are completed.  Homeroom placements for grades 7 and 8 will be posted outside of classroom doors during open house and the first days of school.

Our amazing grade level teams have each provided a welcome letter and list of suggested school supplies for their students, which we have linked below and have also posted on our website. Please remember that the school has everything your child needs, but these lists are provided each summer for families who prefer to purchase their own.  

Sports Physicals are required for all students that plan on participating in BCS extra curriculars prior to tryouts.  Please take a few moments to read the Sports Physical Letter with important information on the details and requirements.  The BCS Sports Physical Form must be completed by your child’s physician.

For planning purposes, we have listed our arrival and dismissal times for those who transport their child(ren) to school. We ask that you do not drop students off early, as there will not be supervision before the times listed below.  

Middle School Arrival: 7:30-7:50

Elementary Arrival: 8:10-8:30

Middle School Dismissal:  Pick up 1:55, Bus 1:55

Elementary Dismissal:

  • Grades 3 & 4 Pick up - 2:45 (main entrance)

  • Grades 1 & 2 Pick up - 2:45 (playground gate by the marquee)

  • K Pick up - 2:50 (playground gate by the marquee)

  • PK pick up 2:50 (near main entrance)

Our open house is tentatively scheduled for August 29th.  Keep your eyes open for more information coming your way as we will be sharing more details around our open house and fall reopening soon. We can’t wait to see our K-8 students back for the first day of school on August 31st, and our PK students on September 6th!!
