    Student Safety:

    We have seen an increase of students walking between busses unsafely.   In order to ensure the safety of students during arrival and dismissal, we will be closing the lower parking lot from 8:15 – 8:45 a.m. and 3:15 – 3:45 p.m.  ALL students being transported by parents to and from school need to be dropped off/ picked up using the carpool lane in the back of the building.  We appreciate your support in using the carpool lane to ensure the safety of all.




    PLEASE REMIND YOUR CHILD TO RETURN ALL LIBRARY BOOKS BY THAT DATE OR TO PAY FOR IF LOST.  There are currently almost 1600 books checked out.

    If you find ANY library books (even if your child didn’t receive a notice for it), please have them return the book to the library.  If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Tillmann @ #651-621-6307.  Thank you!




    If your student has any medications in the Health Office, please pick them up on June 8 or during the following week during office hours.  All inhalers, epinephrine autoinjectors, and other emergency medications should remain available for students through their last day of school.  Other medications may be picked up earlier.  Questions/concerns, please call the health office, 651-621-6304.  

    Please watch for 2017-18 medication authorization forms and health plans sent home in your child's backpack so that you and your health care provider can complete them during the summer. 

    Have a healthy and safe summer!  Please remember seatbelts, bike helmets, and sunscreen will help keep your child safe this summer--we want to see everyone (except the 5th graders!) back at Bel Air in September healthy, happy, and ready to learn!

When parents come to pickup their child(ren), or visitors check in, they will be asked to present a valid state issued ID for entering into the system.
