We received some happy thoughts from our friends in Mr. Dahlgren's class at Shades Mountain Elementary. We appreciate all the thoughts and prayers coming our way from around the country. If you would like to send them a letter, please bring it to the BRCVPA office and we will be happy to mail it for you.
We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday, September 6th. All students, PK-5th grade will report back on the same day. Morning carpool begins at 8:00 am. For the safety and security of our students, all families are expected to drop their child(ren) off in the carpool lane. We have plenty of teachers on duty to help students with supplies, directions, or any other needs. PK & Kindergarten teachers will meet their students in the gym, and once all students have arrived, they will pick up their breakfast and walk as a class to their classrooms. The tardy bell rings at 8:30 am. Buses are dismissed at 3:15 pm and afternoon carpool begins at 3:25 pm. If you need to meet with your child’s teacher before school begins, please contact them via email. Teachers report back to work on September 1st, and will have time to meet with you if needed. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our office at 225-344-0084. BRCVPA does offer extended day hours for a fee. Please contact Ms. GiGi Boudreaux if you are interested in signing up for before- or after-school care. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
