Important First Day of School Information

A special welcome back message from our Chief Community Officer Arliss Prass

We can’t wait to welcome scholars back into our buildings next week! Below are some quick tips to prepare for the first day, and all information and updates regarding the start of school can be quickly accessed via our online Family Resource Center.


First Days of School

  • Monday, August 23: 1st-8th grade  /  Wednesday, August 25: Kindergarten


  • Doors open at 7:35A, School officially starts at 8A, Dismissal officially starts at 3:20P

School Supplies

  • BPS will be providing school supplies for all of our scholars this school year and families DO NOT need to purchase supplies.


  • You may find that Schoolbelles may be on back-order for our logo uniform polos. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause – rest assured your child will not be penalized if you are unable to send them in the logo polo. A solid-colored shirt/polo is an acceptable substitute until more inventory becomes available.

Additional information including the school calendar, transportation information, and health and safety information can be found at our Family Resources Center button below. Please reach out if you have any questions!

In partnership,
