The school day begins at 7:50 AM. All students should arrive between 7:20 AM and 7:45 AM. Unless your student takes the bus, they should not be dropped off at school before 7:20 AM. Duty coverage does not begin until 7:20. Bus students will be dismissed at 2:30. After the busses have left, any student who is a walker will then be dismissed. Once walkers are safely across the road, students who are being picked up in vehicles will be dismissed (2:45). No parent will be permitted to enter the parking lot until all bus and walker students have been dismissed.
Students who arrive to school tardy must present a note signed by their parents/guardians to the Main Office upon arrival. When it is necessary for students to be dismissed early from school or to have alternative transportation home at the end of the day, parents/guardians should use the on-line School Dismissal Manager program. When students will be absent from school, parents are requested to call the school between 7:35 AM and 9:00 AM on the day of the absence or also record the absence in School Dismissal Manager; the school telephone numbers are: 869-2689 and 869-5842. These procedures are in place to provide for the safety and welfare of the children.
Transportation for Bethlehem students is provided by Berry Transportation. Bus #79 (B3) will arrive at normal morning pick up destinations approximately 10 minutes later than last year’s pick up time. Any questions about pick-up and drop-off times and locations should be directed to Tina at 636-6100. Parents/guardians are urged to have their children at the bus stop before the scheduled pick-up time and to advise their children about safety and proper
deportment while waiting for and riding the school bus.
NOTE: Profile Junior-Senior High School students who are not picked up along a regular Bethlehem bus route may meet the Profile buses at BES at approximately 7:10 AM. Junior-Senior High School students are also reminded to behave appropriately and respectfully while waiting for and riding on the bus.
