IMPORTANT Traffic Alert at BCMS

Filed in Archive, District, District News by on March 5, 2021
Repairs to a water main break on Kenwood Avenue today, Friday, Mar. 5, requires changes to regular dismissal at the middle school. The main EXIT from the BCMS parking lot is closed. The school will need to use the public works exit for both buses and cars to depart. This will create delays at dismissal time. Please read the following information carefully:
  • Parents who pick up students must not arrive at the school before 3 p.m. This is essential for safety purposes. Students who are being picked up will wait in the upper gym until after all walkers have been safely dismissed and all buses have left the school.
  • Buses will load early at 2:40 p.m. to allow additional time for buses to exit the school using the public works exit. 
  • Walkers will be dismissed at 2:40 p.m. 
Again, if you drive, DO NOT ARRIVE at the school before 3 p.m. No cars will be allowed out before all school buses have departed. A police vehicle will be in front of the school to assist with traffic control and to ensure no drivers attempt to pass in front of any bus. Even if you arrive after 3 p.m., please plan for additional delays of 15-20 minutes as the school navigates traffic through the area safely. Anyone arriving early will still need to wait until the buses have departed the lot and will need to wait their turn to exit the school.
