Communications Update/BPS App Information:
We hear you, Spartans! In the past, there has been information coming to families from too many different platforms. The district has made a concerted effort to streamline communications as much as possible. School sites will be sharing more details as August approaches and for now…
There is one VERY IMPORTANT TO-DO: Download the BPS App if you do not already have it and be sure your settings are set to allow notifications.
Transportation Information for Bus Riders:
The district will continue with Ride 360/Traversa for the 22-23 school year. We recognize the many challenges surrounding this platform experienced by our families last fall. The BPS Transportation Department has worked tirelessly to remedy these issues and we look forward to a smooth launch as we approach the start of school. For now, families with a bus rider should download the Ride 360 App. The app is free via Google Play or Apple Store. Log in information and route details will be available closer to the start of school, so no need to log in to the app just yet.
Child Nutrition, Free/Reduced Meals and Online Meal Payment:
Due to a change at the federal level, school meals will no longer be free for all students this school year. BPS calls on ALL families to complete the free/reduced lunch application, especially if you may qualify. This impacts our eligibility for various funding in our schools! Everything from technology, student remediation, transportation, professional development for teachers, and even the district’s ability to receive grants depends upon the completion of these applications by families who may qualify.
If students would like to enjoy a school meal or something extra via a la carte, they will need to pay cash or have money on their MySchoolBucks account. For questions or concerns, please contact the child nutrition department at 918-366-2214 or 918-366-2391.
We look forward to welcoming students back to school on Tuesday, August 16th! See you soon, Spartans!
