If your child is out sick for 3 or more days, please contact Mrs. Mitchell at 410-313-2584. We will collect work from the teachers for you to pick up only if the student has been absent for 3 or more days. If they are only out 1 or 2 days have them call a homework buddy from their class, and check each teachers web page or wiki. If you are requesting work for a child who will be absent while on vacation, please notify Student Services at least one week in advance and understand more than 3 days are NOT considered a lawful absence. BBMS will do our best to provide you with work as you request, but turning all make-up work in a timely manner is the student’s responsibility.
A student should bring a note to the front office from home on the first day back to school after an absence, explaining the reason for the absence(s). Students are responsible for make-up work. Lawful absences include: absences for death of immediate family member, illness of student, court summons, hazardous weather conditions, observance of religious holiday, state emergency, suspension, and up to 3 days per year for a purpose determined by a parent/guardian. Prior notice to the principal is required.
A student arriving at school after 8:10 should report directly to the front office. Students should bring a note from home with a legitimate reason for being late. Oversleeping, missing the bus, traffic, etc. are not considered excused.
Students needing to leave school before the normal dismissal time should bring a note from home to the front office when they arrive at school. Students may not leave the building before a parent/guardian or other authorized adult signs the student out.
