Drop-Off and Pick-up Information
Please ensure that any custody or emergency pick-up information is on file at the main office of BCCS. The office must be kept informed of additions or changes regarding who is authorized to pick up your scholars from school.
Please Note: When dropping off or picking up, please obey the traffic and parking signs surrounding school property.
All Pre-K students must be dropped off to their class, entering the building at the Hart Street and Marcus Garvey street entrance.
Grades K – 2 scholars will also enter at the Hart Street and Marcus Garvey Boulevard entrance. Scholars, unescorted by parents or guardians will be led to the cafeteria to have breakfast with their classmates.
Grades 3 – 5 will enter and be greeted by staff from the rear entrance at Pulaski Street and Marcus Garvey Boulevard. They eat breakfast in the cafeteria with their classmates.
Pre-K and Kindergarten scholars not participating in the after-school program must also be picked up at their classroom. First through Fifth Graders not participating in after-school programs may be released directly to a waiting parent or guardian listed on the Blue Card from the auditorium. Parents and Guardians of Third through Fifth Graders may submit an approved note allowing their scholar to walk home unescorted.
We give notice of after-school dates and times for all families to arrange proper and prompt pick up of their scholar from after-school care. PLEASE be on time for after-school pick up. This year we are instituting a three strikes policy. We try to program the utmost of quality learning and fun for after school enrichment. The end of the evening is a crucial time for everyone involved in getting home as efficiently as possible. We would hate to deny a scholar the continued opportunity to attend, because of routine tardiness.
