BMS Welcome Back!
We are excited to welcome back our students tomorrow, August 24! This past year has served as a great reminder that we shouldn't take our time for granted. We must take every opportunity to teach and learn. Although COVID-19 has brought about some changes in school and everyday life, let's focus on the positive and find joy in whatever we do.
Our faculty and staff are grateful for the time we have with our students, and we see each day as another opportunity to make a positive impact on our students' lives!
The theme for the 2020-21 school year is #LoveYourPeople. We would love to see your back-to-school pictures fill up social media tomorrow, whether your child is coming back to campus or joining us virtually. Be sure to use the hashtag #LoveYourPeople and #BeGreatBismarck.
There are many changes this year so I wanted to make a list of important information as we begin the school year.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call 501-865-4543. We are here for you!
PLEASE BE SURE YOUR CHILD KNOWS EXACTLY HOW TO GET HOME IN THE AFTERNOONS.
We are going to have a GREAT year,

No Cost Meals to Students!
The (USDA) has announced the extension of meals served at no cost to students through December 31, 2020. The purpose of the extension is to assure that children have access to nutritious meals while the nation recovers from COVID-19. During the pandemic, USDA has continued to provide flexibilities for the purpose of assisting families and assuring that children are fed whether they attend school in a classroom environment or as virtual students.
It is the intent of USDA, and the ADE, DESE, Child Nutrition Unit (CNU) to assure that Arkansas children have access to the meals they need while maintaining the integrity of the Child Nutrition Programs.
Although students will receive meals at no charge through December 31, 2020, it is imperative that parents continue to work with our school district in completing and submitting free and reduced meal applications. State and federal funds received by each district are determined by the free and reduced percentages collectively from meal applications. Families who have not completed a meal applications are strongly encouraged to do so.
Thank you and we continue to look forward to a great year!
